If it wasn’t for bad luck, I wouldn’t have no luck at all

Hello all again, my “vacation” is officially over.  I had hoped to give you all a status update on the family and what we have been up to.  I also have some more anecdotes and cute stories about Faith and some more medical information about her.

Another mater has surfaced that takes priority that I felt you should all know about and that will significantly affect our family again.

Our family learned today that my wife Susan has breast cancer.  The preliminary staging before biopsy and PET scan is stage 3. The plan is to complete some diagnostic testing in the following weeks and begin the first cycle of many of chemotherapy, to be followed by surgery in about 6 months.

We will know the prognosis better after the tests and her response to chemotherapy.  Without doubt the following months and school year will be very challenging for my wife and our family.

Thank you all for your past and future prayers for our family again as we begin another journey & battle with illness. I know our angel Faith will be keeping Mommy as safe as she can.
