Nashville or Bust

The trip that started a longer journey

Take this, Lymphoma!

I’m keeping this one short as we are leaving soon for the hospital. Today holds in store more tests (the bi-lateral bone marrow sample has us both a bit antsy) and Dave’s first round of Chemo. He’ll be receiving the CHOP variety via IV. (If I were those lymphoma cells, I’d start packing my bags. Their days are numbered!) We should also receive the status of the PET scan redo from last Thursday. So there may be more news on that later.

For everyone who has called, dropped a note, stopped by, whispered a prayer, cut your hair for Locks of Love (Heather!) … my saying thank you right now seems so humble and pale in return.  Dave feels your energy and love and that is incredibly awesome. It is the best medicine on the planet and that which will see him through all of this.

If you have a few moments, check out the attached clip. My co-worker, Brandon, shared this out last week. (He knew I’d find a little something special in it. And I did.) Talk about a positive mindset and endurance! It’s my dose for this day especially as I get set to coach him through.
