#BSMHB – 1st VLOG of 2016

Happy New Year!

The last month of 2015 proved to be crazy — to say the least.  Here’s a little re-cap of everything that went down with my operation and how I am recovering, as well as what’s up for 2016.


Always,

12.02.15: Night Before Surgery Video Update

Tomorrow is the big day and we’re feeling super optimistic and hopeful.  I’ve been in a considerable amount of pain over the last few days and have been pretty medicated, but each and every message has warmed my heart and touched my soul.  I will never be able to put into words just how much I (we) appreciate all of the ridiculous amounts of kindness, thoughts, prayers and so much more!  Knowing that we are not at this alone builds us up for the road that is in front of us.  Things may get worse before they get better, but I’m pretty relentless and I won’t leave this earth without putting up one hell of a fight.  After all, I am a Scorpio.

Always love,

11.30.2015: Pre-Op Video Update

It is safe to say I am fairly numb after today’s visit with one of the surgeons performing my operation on December 3rd, 2015.  My energy levels are pretty low and this is the easiest way for me to communicate with everyone at the moment.  If you’ve messaged, text, called, etc. I’m sorry for not responding — I’ve been a little emotional, as I am sure you can imagine.  But please know your love and kindness has not gone unnoticed.  All thoughts, prayers and good energy is beyond appreciated and I’ll update my blog as soon as possible after surgery on Thursday.

Love forever,

“May the Fourth Be with You” – Happy #4 to My #1:

Steve and Britt, 4 Years

“Let someone love you just the way you are — as flawed as you might be, as unattractive as you sometimes feel, and as unaccomplished as you think you are.  To believe that you must hide all the parts of you that are broken, out of fear that someone is incapable of loving what is less than perfect, is to believe that sunlight is incapable of entering a broken window and illuminating a dark room.” — A Wise Person

I’m not sure of all of my decisions in life, but one thing I know is certain, I loved you from the beginning and I’ll love you for hundreds of years to come.  You are the bravest man I know, keeping my heart forever safe.  Cheers to you, my love, the moon and all the stars, I love you even though you are from Mars.

Happy fourth wedding anniversary, XI.XII.MMXI

(PS- don’t kill me for the title of this post, Steve…it’s just FOUR you!)

Love,

I am so appreciative and thankful for the support I have received from family, friends and strangers as I battle this epic disease that is cancer. Not but a month ago I started this blog as a platform of therapy and to share my story. Thank you for being a part of my journey and caring enough to read my scattered thoughts through this process.

Love,
