What is Synovial Sarcoma Anyway? – Not, really. Maybe next week…

This morning I was all prepared to write a blog with facts.  Facts about Synovial Sarcoma and a bunch of statistics about how rare it is and why it happens and what it does to the body and who knows what if anything.  You know, trying to give you a better picture of what we're [...]

What’s With All of the Posting?

So, I'm trying to consolidate all of this business in hopes that it's easier for everyone to keep up with us - please be patient with me.  What you'll see to the right is past updates that I wrote for another site.  You might have read these previously, but I've added a few thoughts as [...]

Dec. 7 December Update

December Update By Adrienne Gibson — Dec 7, 2014 10:42pm Wow! It's been awhile since I've updated. Honestly, I just haven't felt like writing about cancer. It's all consuming and It's like treading in murky deep water to keep it from swallowing us whole. We're hanging in there. Trent is on day 3 in round 3 of chemo [...]

Oct. 13 Dates are Set

  Dates are Set By Adrienne Gibson — Oct 13, 2014 7:15pm   Trent is scheduled to begin chemo on Wednesday. Things are a bit stressful in our house. (I wish I could remember why I said that...) Please pray for us as he begins his treatment. He'll have 2 rounds and then another trip to MDA - 6 [...]

Oct. 12 Sunday Sunday

Sunday Sunday By Adrienne Gibson — Oct 12, 2014 9:54pm After a whirlwind trip to MDA this past week we finally have a start date. Trent will begin his chemotherapy this upcoming week. We're hoping he's one of those people who sail through chemo. He's a tough guy and a great healer. Its been 2 months since the [...]

Oct. 3 MDA

MDA Oct. 3 By Adrienne Gibson — Oct 3, 2014 10:23am Sorry I haven't updated. Frankly, I haven't been "in the mood." Between hounding doctors' offices, wifeing, mommying and breastfeeding, pumping, appointments, dogs and anything else that you can imagine we've been swamped. So many of you have offered help and delivered and it's been such a true [...]

Sept. 17 C. Diff

Update By Adrienne Gibson — Sep 17, 2014 5:00pm - (This was my Dad's birthday and I said nothing about it.  I was on another planet.  Happy Belated Birthday, Dad!  Better late than never.) Since the fever Trent was found to have a pretty horrendous bacteria called C. Diff. He was asked to return to the ER and [...]

Sept. 11 Fever

Fever   By Adrienne Gibson — Sep 11, 2014 4:45pm   We've had better days. Trent's fighting a fever and has been vomiting. We made a trip to the ER (Thank you, Ginger) and they ran bloodwork, he got a bag of fluid and they took chest xrays. There appeared to be increases in size according to the [...]

Sept. 9 Surgery

Surgery By Adrienne Gibson — Sep 9, 2014 3:20pm Trent has surgery on his arm tomorrow for what will hopefully be the last time. He'll have the external fixture removed and as of yesterday there was no plan to put anything on the inside and it's an outpatient procedure, yay! This is #5 and he's know where near [...]

Sept. 3 Big Days Ahead

Tomorrow is the appointment with the oncologist, the first since leaving the hospital 10 days ago. We're not quite sure what to expect and have trained ourselves to just be ready for anything. The best outcome would be leaving his office with a date for Trent's appointment at MD Anderson. I have a lot of [...]
