Found out earlier this week that my wife has stage 2 invasive breast cancer that has spread to some of the auxiliary lymph nodes. We still have MRI's, CT and bone scans to do. So we don't know how far, or if it has spread anywhere else.
This is a very trying time for us. I seriously doubt that I can continue to work my job in my usual capacity, especially with the holidays approaching. From November to the end of December I usually pull a lot of 80 to 100+ hour weeks.
My first priority is to care for my wife and kids. Everything else can just wait!!!
We are extremely lucky to have a good insurance policy and could make it work if I have to take a leave of absence from work. I just feel bad for possibly leaving my bosses hanging if the worst happens. Especially at the holidays, our absolute busiest time of year.
I hate to air my laundry here, just looking to see if any of you can offer some words of wisdom or maybe past experiences. PM me if you can.
We are going to beat this!
All I would ask of you would be for some prayers for the knerd family. We're going to need it!
Family comes first! Having a good thought for you and yours.
Hax the cook CLEAVERS RULE!!! :D
All I can say is tell your wife to kick its ass!
I'm sorry to learn of this sad change in your family's circumstances, Chris.
You, your wife, and your entire family will be in my thoughts.
Fight, fight, fight!
We all wish you and your family the best and hope the treatment goes well
Be positive, its amazing what they can do now. Prayers headed you way ten fold!
