A Tough Start to October

I am always happy to see October roll around, it means our 100 + degree days are waning….it is actually beautiful at night.

I won’t be on my blog much this fall.  This last Monday our family found out that our youngest grown son Chris has Osteogenic Sarcoma in his right thigh.  The tumor is a little bit bigger than 7 inches and it is inside and outside of the bone.

He is going to Mayo Clinic here in Scottsdale, Arizona.  The Orthopedic doctor he was referred to immediately saw the issue and got ahold of a Dr. Beauchamp at Mayo.  He is one of the two top Orthopedic oncologists in AZ.   Lots of tests, and he starts chemo October 8th.  A few sessions and then the diseased portion of the bone has to come out.  We are as ready as we can be.  We feel good about the doctors,   and Chris has an amazing upbeat outlook so far….

 

So prayers are appreciated and I will be back when I can……

Have a blessed Autumn my friends!
