Hi my great Friend! I'm so grateful you are there thinking and praying for us!  

He did great in the surgery. The doctor said he removed handfuls of "Current jelly" blood clots from his lower back. They think somehow he popped an internal stitch which started the muscles to bleed and build so much thick fluid that it caused the drain he had in to clog. They put in 2 new drains and hopefully that will detour the problem from happening again.


I'm so lucky to have each day with him!  Even if some of those days are horrible. The last two weeks especially have been such an emotional roller coaster I don't know how much more we can handle..... I'm so grateful for him and his will to survive. 


Luckily yesterday he did great with the physical therapists and was feeling good enough to come home! So I'm back in my home writing to you. 

Do you have fun Memorial Weekend Plans? I sure hope so! I think I'm going to rent a fun movie tonight and have a family fun night at home with my babies.  Then Sunday we are having a BBQ with my family. 

I will talk to you Monday!

Hi my Friend! Did you have a good Mother's Day weekend?

I had Clint home 

And breakfast in bed made by these little cuties! 

We were in and out of the doctors. Friday they sent Clint home with oxygen and each day I can see him getting more and more tired.

*warning graphic pictures below*


We went in yesterday to get his drain pulled and they said he was pretty swollen!!(um yeah) they also sent us down to get labs again and last night the doctor called us and said his blood count had dropped from 40 on Friday to 30 today. They think he's losing blood somewhere. We need to keep him using the oxygen and if he is not really feeling better today we need to take him to get a blood transfusion. 

Sorry the pictures are big I'm blogging on my phone. I find myself drained and tired once I put the kids in bed. So I'm laying here in my bed writing to you my dear friend in the dark.

Clint said to me the other day that he woke up from a dream and thought this was all a nightmare. How I wish that was true. It seems like the bad news train keeps getting their navigation put on our address! What do you do to keep from falling apart when that seems to be the only thing to do?! Just keep trying to treasure the time you have together with those that mean the most to you in your life! 

I will talk to you soon...

His drain is putting out a lot blood still so they probably will keep us in the hospital until Saturday, but hopefully I will get him home as my Mothers Day present!

I miss you and I will hopefully be able to chat with you soon. Thank you for your comments and emails it really does help strengthen us!

Oh p.s

I set up a Facebook page for Clint. It's under Clint the Cancer Warrior

My sister in law set up a website donation account for Clint HERE

Hi my Friend. I want you to know I haven't forgotten you. I've been wanting to sit down and let the tear drops fall as my fingers hit the keys....

Monday we found out the cancer has started to spread to his lungs. The pieces are so small they are going to wait and do another scan on them in August.

But today they are operating on the tumor on his back.

Wish us luck and I will talk to you as soon as I can.
