my husband hits the 10 year mark

10 years ago today my husband was diagnosed with a giant cell tumor in his leg. at first they thought it was cancerous and that he was going to have to fight for his life. then they thought they would have to amputate his leg. praise God though it was benign and they were able to save his leg. they went in and took out most of the bone in his lower leg and filled it with cement. the whole ordeal held michael back a year from starting college and made him very limited on the sports he can play. i know it devastates him that there is a large possibility that he will not be able to play basketball with kane and run around with him. when it gets cold out side he can feel it rubbing and it causes him extreme pain. we are both so worried about the upcoming months here in ohio. he realizes that within the next 10 years he will probably have to have a total knee replacement.

i can not imagine the fear he experienced at 18 years old. michael is such a fighter and this is proof that nothing will slow him down.

i am so proud of you! so proud to be your wife. you amaze me!
