It's not all flowers and light right now...
For the past week I've been toying with the idea of whether I should post this or not.
Sean's brain tumour has recurred and has now morphed from an astrocytoma grade II to the extremly serious and aggressive glioblastoma multiforme, also known as GBM IV. If you remember, I mentioned during the Canada Day weekend that Sean wasn't feeling too well when we visited the first food truck event in Toronto. Since then Sean has gone through a day procedure awake craniotomy and has been scheduled to start chemotherapy on August 10. Words fail me when I try to explain how our vocabulary now regularly includes words like cancer and life expectancy.
It's been tough digesting the whole situation and although it has been extremely hard on Sean, he's still smiling like a champ. My short temper and limited patience has not been helping the situation, but being the calm and practical person that he is, Sean has been doing a brilliant job of balancing his stress and mine as well. Let's just say, I've also made a mighty dent in the apartment gym's treadmill running out all my frustration and anger. How could you not be? Add to that a great physical and virtual support of friends and family and we are managing to continue leading our lives with a positive outlook.
Only time will reveal what is going to happen. But one thing we are sure about is that we are going to do whatever we can from our side to kick the tumour.
Wish us all the best?
