Rick, Amy, Angie, Jake and I went to Rick's appointment this morning with the surgeon. We were hoping for the pathology reports when we arrived but due to some glitch because of the holiday the report wasn't there. Here is what we know....
Rick is having surgery tomorrow afternoon where they will be removing a portion of his right colon, lymph nodes and maybe some of his liver. The doctor said he will not be able to cure Rick with surgery alone, so in a month or so (once he's feeling better) he will begin chemotherapy. This is going to be a rough couple of months but when cancer messes with a Schmitt, it messes with the whole family - So watch out.
I was reminded today by the kids that I need to take care of myself for all our sake, but it just seems impossible right now to think of anything besides Rick and our children. I'm tired tonight because I haven't been sleeping well. Hopefully tonight I can get a good night's rest. We have a big day ahead of us tomorrow.
Thanks for all your love and support. We'll try to keep you posted each day on the blog so you know what's going on. Keep us in your prayers.
