now we know...where to go from here

The weather is starting to change..I'm praying it brings hope, healing, new life and renewal.

We got the results of the biopsy..Hodgkin's. We have yet another test in 2 weeks (although they're trying for a sooner opening) to determine exactly how much treatment. Either way he'll need chemo. Hopefully, it hasn't spread anywhere and it'll be a short treatment. This is not what we prayed for..(I actually prayed that everyone was wrong and it was nothing). But, we will continue to rely on God for guidance and to get whatever it is that we are supposed to learn from this. Please continue the prayers, they work and we can feel them. Danny is, as usual, very level headed and handling things well. Everyone, from the oncologist to the nurses to the billing staff (can you believe?) have been amazing, optimistic and, well, very compassionate. My mom asked if they were southern (you would think so!). Anyway, we are very thankful. If we have to go through this, this is the team we want and need.

We got home and Danny went to a job site to "bang on things" (very healthy attitude, I thought). When I get the car....I'm going shopping (retail therapy). See....we're handling things very well. LOL

Please continue to pray for us...thank you ;-)


  1. Praying for you guys. This must have been so hard to hear.

  2. It felt like being hit by a truck (no offense to anyone who has actually been..hit by a truck)....see, still have my sense of humor. :-)Thank you, Michelle

  3. Danny & Nikki, this is your cousin Scott form Florida. I heard about the situation with Dan from the family. Wanted you to know I am praying for you. God is much bigger than any device of the enemy! Isaiah 54:17 "NO WEAPON THAT IS FORMED AGAINST THEE SHALL PROSPER."
    I love you guys.
