I have intentionally not posted anything on here for a long time. Sadly, there are a handful of people that are using this blog — out of context, in my opinion — to add drama and stress to our already difficult situation. These are people that haven’t been entirely supportive of me or many of the choices that Johan and I have made over the years so it’s not surprising but it’s hurtful nonetheless.
Therefore I’ve decided to stay quiet for fear that they will send Johan yet another email to harass him about his wife’s blog. I can only imagine what this post will bring. It’s a shame because this was such a rewarding outlet for me to share our experiences, both happy and sad, and to keep all our friends and my family updated. I’ve really enjoyed writing this blog.
Perhaps I’ll write again. I think a book might be in order.
For now, know that we’re hanging in there. We’re making plans for the future and looking forward to moving past this very dark phase. Johan, with the help of Sutent, is doing well managing his cancer. He learned a few weeks back that his tumors are indeed shrinking. We are staying positive and trying to keep our eyes focused on those things that make us feel safe and happy.
Until next time…
