Today is D-1.  We spent the day doing work that needed to be done, acquiring things that needed to be bought, and just general details to nail down…with time for lunch at Subway.  This afternoon we went to an educational session at the hospital, telling us what to expect for tomorrow.  Our appointment is at 8:45 and the nurse told us to plan on being there all day.

We came home and had fresh fruits and veggies for dinner, and the family recipe crunch cake for dessert.

Now we’ve split up to our individual tasks for the night, but just before we did, we paused to take this portrait of our united front against cancer.  We may have taken the first round, but tomorrow we answer with a mighty counterbattery.  Not pictured, of course, is Mommy, and M, and J, and my brother and his lovely wife, and the many many more who are behind my mom, just not in this picture.  To count yourself in the ranks as we fight cancer, please leave a comment here.

  1. Yes Kevin, I am not in your picture but I definitely join in your fight. I think of you and all your family often through out the day. All I can do is pray… and pray I do. I pray for your Mother to have strength, courage and ofcourse HOPE. Hope is key right behind faith. I wish I was there to bring you food. Perhaps lucky for all of you I am not. I do send my love and prayers….

  2. Your family has many people praying for you. I have been on this merry go round for a year now, so I know how important the prayer support is. Make sure your Mom stays hydrated. You may consider setting up a page on caringbridge. It is a great way to keep everyone informed. Love to all of you. This is going to be a difficult battle, but it can be done!

  3. Judy, continued prayers and thinking about you daily…my sweet and precious cousin! I am so sorry you are going through all of this! Mom sends her love and prayers as well. I love you dearly and if there is any thing any of you need, please let us know!

  4. Kevin, you count Mikey, Joycie and I in as soliders in your fight against cancer. Each member of your family is in our prayers nightly and our thoughts daily. If there is anything we can do, please do not hesitate to ask.

  5. We’re behind you – and next to you. We can be on all sides. Keep us posted.

  6. Also not in your picture, but fully with you and the family (through prayer, and any other way I can assist) during this battle.

  7. Many prayers for your whole family … prayers of strength & wellness for your mom and for deep comfort for you ALL.

  8. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family Kevin! My aunt was diagnosed with breast cancer about a year ago and has done amazing. She’s now cancer free! I hope your Mom’s battle with cancer is just as successful!

  9. May God bless you and keep you strong! Prayers for you and your family.

  10. We are behind you, your mom and your whole family. I don’t know if I ever told you, but my son was diagnosed with lymphoma when he was 4 and he relapsed with leukemia when he was 13. Both battles were long and fraught with anxiety. The trick is to retain your relationship with god, because that is what will see you through.

  11. Judy, you are surrounded with love, prayers and well wishes. We are all here to help provide you with the strength that you need to fight this fight, just call on us whenever you need a boost, a hug or a shoulder. You are not alone!

  12. Judy, Kent and family,
    You are all in our prayers. Having gone through breast cancer 2x i understand but prayer and attitude are your best medicine. Please let me know if I can do anything.

    Carolyn and Jim Moore

  13. Judy: Count me in as a prayer warrior in your ranks! Prayers for your health and spirit, for the entire family, and for the doctors who will be treating you. Sending you love from California!!

  14. Y’all fight that thing!

  15. Kevin, thanks so much for doing this. I feel a part of the healing process.

  16. Praying, praying, praying.
