Day 1: Tom Baker Cancer Clinic

Today is a very busy day........spoke with the Doc this morning and he will be going through a whole load more tests today to determine how advanced the cancer is, and where it has spread to, in his body. Chemo could possibly begin as early as later today, or tomorrow for sure....we are still unsure the details and still have a lot of unanswered we wait to speak with more Doc's about treatments.

Just wanted to let everyone know that because everything is still so new, and Colin and i and our families are still processing what is happening and what will be happening......that you don't call the hospital directly or come by to visit right now. I (Missy) am here at the hospital right now, and i have access to the blog anytime, so i will be updating constantly!

Please pray for Chemo treatments to be successful and for Colin to be strong through it all. We are every way, but God is carrying us and we just really need your prayers.
Again, as we know, you all will know as well!
Just one day at a time!


  1. Hi guys!
    I'm not sure the best way to msg you but I figure this works.
    Melissa, you've been on my mind a lot lately and I've been missing you. I just found out what was going on this week and my heart was broken for you guys. I was hoping to pop by to bring you guys some cookies but I now know you guys left for Calgary (I was wondering what all the different cars in your yard were for yesterday) and I didn't want to impose.
    So, I just want to let you guys know that we are praying hard for you. For you to have strength, for the boys, and for Colin's healing of course that the treatments will work and you can get through this.
    What else do you say at a time like this? Thanks for keeping this blog so we can all be posted and know what to keep praying for.
    Love, Echo and Josh
