Two New Journeys...

First I (we) have GREAT news! I am currently 20 weeks pregnant w/ our second baby. We find out whether its a girl or boy 7/11/09! We're kind of hoping for a girl. I'll definitely update when I have time.

Now for the bad news... I found out 7/7/09 through a biopsy that I have a form of breast cancer. As of right now I'm not entirely sure what type, how bad, prognosis, etc. However, the wheels are turning so that I can go down to MD Anderson for assessment and treatment. The way is being paved by prayers from my family & friends. Thanks guys! When I have time, I'll update all this information as well!

Here's an article about pregnancy & breast cancer - just to give some extra information!

I was just introduced to your blog through another blogging friend!
Strangely enough, I was diagnosed on 7/7/08 with Invasive Ductal Carcinoma. I just wanted you to know that you WILL get through this and that there is a tremendous support network in the blogging world.
While my treatment is over (at least for now)I'd be glad and honored to
support you in any way that I can.
For starters, please know that you are in my prayers and I will follow your blog to keep updated.
Feel free to contact me anytime!

In 2006, Andrew & I became one before God and family! Shortly thereafter we became 3 with the birth of Simon in 2008... Then 4 with the addition of Rachel in 2009!
