February 16th is the day that the Heintz family journeyed on the road to fighting oral cancer. Hell, we both decided last night that we are giving up cancer for Lent.
We got the devastating news and are on ATTACK mode. I am so thankful my parents are here this week to help, but there is no question we are in over our heads and need all the support people can be willing to muster. I have no idea where this blog will go, but I imagine we'll use it to keep everyone up to date on our progress.
Eric is doing remarkably well, considering, but we already have moments of sheer desperation. Insurance, testing, chemo, surgery...such scary things.
And then there are the boys. I am glad they are not old enough to understand, but Miles already could sense things were amiss and had a rough night last night.
Join us in fighting this awful disease. It's gonna be a wild ride.
I think Eric put it best: "I just realized I am always going to be labeled. Cancer Survivor."
You better believe it...
