"the results are in...

....and it's not good news". jenny's words echoed in my head over and over today. she called me on the way home from work, wanting to give me a few minutes to get acclimated to the idea. most of you won't hear or read this for a few days, but that's to let us get acclimated to the idea as a couple. if you're reading this, then here we all are, at the beginning of our journey.

we took jenny to the emergency room last week because she was having trouble breathing. after running some tests, they decided to give her a ct scan. that's when they found a mass in her chest, and we had a biopsy done this past friday.right now, all we know is that it's hodgkin's lymphoma. we found out today (Tuesday, March 2) around 2 p.m. our first appointment with our new oncologist is tomorrow morning at 8:30. we're gettin this party started quickly, and we want to know and do everything we can as soon as we can.

so, here we are. we're going to keep everybody updated through this blog. post questions in the comments section, and we'll get to you as soon as we can. we know that this will be a challenge, but we know that God will not test us with anything that we cannot overcome. it's real. it's scary. it's in God's hands, exactly where we want it to be. keep us in your prayers, and we'll keep you up to date as much as possible. we love you. -j&j
