Just a few weeks prior to the wedding Adrienne, her family, and I had a post treatment appoint with the Dr. to discuss the scan results... I am not going to go into detail at the moment but will just say that the results we received that day were not what we expected, prayed for, begged for nor should have gotten. This day was the first time that I broke down in front of my wife in tears that I could not hold back no matter how strong I tried to be for her. We were both scared, confused and shocked that this was happening. We talked about it daily, how she had overcome so much, surgery after surgery and treatments all without breaking stride or a complaint of feeling sorry for herself though she had every right in the world to. She is one of the strongest people that I have ever known in my life and the fact that we did not get the good news that I know she deserved completely broke my heart. After all she had been through and overcome already, why this.... why more... We both truly in our hearts and minds believed that the fight was won, that we could have our normal lives back and continue on pursuing the dreams and goals as a newly wed couple should. Unfortunately this was not the case...
