Update 5/23

We were given the final results today and it is Hodgkin Lymphoma in stage IV. He begins chemo tonight and will do it every other week for the next 6 months. He has a 60% chance of being cured and then there is a chance that he will treated but not cured. So now we work on recovery and getting him back to his old self.


  1. Hang in there Kari. Prayers for Ben and you and those babies are headed your way. That percentage is very good and I feel very good that things will turn out fabulous! My Mother in Law was diagnosed with Pancreatic cancer which is in majority of cases fatal. She has survived surgery and 6 months of weekly chemo/radiation therapy and is in remission since July 2008. Hang in there and HE will provide.

  2. Hang in there. Now you know the "enemy" so you can fight it. It is going to be a crazy 6 months for your family, but you can get through this, too! - Tkeys

  3. Kari - if there is someone from your church or community that is going to coordinate an effort to help you and Ben, please have them post on SK so we can help!

  4. *here from Me's blog*
    Sorry about your husband's cancer. Sending ALL of you guys many thoughts and prayers.


We've been FLOCKED!

Nine years ago this summer there was so much uncertainty, would Ben make it through his treatments?  Would I be able to carry all four babi...
