As many of you might already know, Adam received the OFFICIAL 'Cancer Free' diagnosis!

Adam had his surgery about two weeks ago, and we were going a bit crazy because they told us we would have the pathology results within 3-5 days and that never happened. Instead, around day 4, we started hounding them. Finally on Thursday, a nurse called Adam back and let him know that his biopsy had been free of the cancer, but that was all she would tell us and we were to come in on Monday for a follow-up. Just the way it was said, we were kind of dreading it in a 'what now!?' kind of way. On Saturday morning while I was getting ready for the day, Adam came in and let me know that he had a voicemail randomly come through from Friday and it was the Neurosurgeon. He let Adam know that he had been out of town at a conference and had just wanted to let Adam know that he was officially CANCER FREE and we would be seeing them in three months for a follow-up scan and blood work.

YAY!! It is really hard to describe the flood of feelings that comes from that one voicemail. We still have a little way to go to pull ourselves back together after this five-month endeavor but we are really, really looking forward to being able to breathe a little easier these days!

Thank you everyone, again, for all of your support, encouragement, and love for us. We truly, truly appreciate it and could not have done it without any of you!

{Adam's Surgery}

Just a quick update!!

Adam had his double biopsy today. Everything went great, the surgery itself lasted about two hours. They were able to get good samples to ensure they had a sample to work with. They weren't too sure what it was they were seeing and the pathology will take approximately 3-5 days so we are hoping to have answers by the end of this week!! The Dr. sounded very optimistic because he felt the tissue samples that he looked at didn't look too abnormal, so we are keeping fingers crossed!

Adam was able to go home about an hour after surgery. He is relatively pain free but he was sent home with a prescription just in case! He is sore and his back is pretty stiff but he is doing pretty good! He was able to get over to my parents tonight and have dinner with my aunts who are in town!! We will see how good he is feeling in the morning, though!

Thank you everyone for the well wishes of support!! A lot is riding on this week so we continue to try to keep a positive attitude! We will keep you posted...
