Cody and I got so comfortable this last month living a “reality” as new parents and not as people fighting a horrible disease. We were able to get back to being “us” and remembering how great things were before this nightmare started. We were living the reality that every newly married couple with a brand new baby should be living. Except, unforunately, that’s not really reality for us. We have done a great job the last couple weeks kind of putting cancer on the back burner and not l Continue reading
Well it’s been a fun and comfortable last couple of days but I will discuss all that later tonight or tomorrow. For now I’m just going to use this post to ask for something from everyone.
Hopefully this post is a little more uplifting and happy, as it’s filled with all kinds of beautiful memories. 🙂
We were discharged on Wednesday, August 26th, just 4 days after he was born (5 days spent in the NICU) at 9pm. Long story short, we had to wait for him to be off the jaundice lights for 24 hours before discharge so we got discharged a Continue reading
It’s been a LONG, LONG time coming but I’m finally jumping on to fill you all in on the past 3.5 weeks! I know Lindsay has given you some insight but I want to tag on to what she said and express my side as well!

We had just made a plan a few weeks prior to be induced on August 30, but of course little man had a plan on his own. Par for course for this pregnancy things didn’t go as smooth as we were hoping. After being in the hospital the previous weekend due to chemo side effects Continue reading
Well to say the last few weeks was eventful would be putting it pretty lightly. In fact, I feel like writing this is a monumental task just to fit the insanity into one post. We’ve had so many physical, mental, medical and bab Continue reading
Well I’ve been on quite the hiatus. If you hadn’t guessed by now, I have had a very, very rough couple of weeks (as did Lindsay) and I’ve struggled to find the ‘want to’ or the mindset to sit down and write but I almost felt compelled to write something today even if it’s brief.
Last round of chemo was super difficult on Lindsay both emotionally and mentally. She started feeling crappy earlier in the round and that kind of steamrolled into a rough mental stretch as well.
