Over the Christmas holidays my husband was diagnosed with cancer – squamous cell carcinoma of the tonsil. Before he could begin treatment he had a ruptured brain aneurysm and was airlifted from St. Mary’s (our local hospital) to Jefferson Neuroscience Hospital in Philadelphia. He’s been there in critical condition in the ICU for 19 days.
During John’s first week there, while I was on the train on my way to see him, my dad died. It was January 25th at approximately 9:50am. I didn’t even get to say goodbye. :(
So needless to say, this year is off to a rough start.
I started a GoFundMe page to help alleviate some of what’s going to be astronomical expenses, and I was overwhelmed at the outpouring of support! If you’d like to donate, or read more about what happened click on the following picture or CLICK HERE. Thank you in advance!
I do have good news as of this afternoon! John’s brain drain was removed on Sunday night/Monday morning. They closely monitored him for 48 hours and then did a follow up CT this morning. It was clear!! John is getting released tomorrow and gets to come home!
He’ll have to do some in-home PT, and take it easy for a couple weeks before having another follow up CT, but after that we’ll be able to get his cancer treatment started.
Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers. ❤️ Thank you.
