Exciting News

Ok so I am going to give everyone the back story...

So about 4 months ago Jesse and I decided that we wanted to try for a baby. So I stopped taking my birth control and we tried. Two months past and we still were not pregnant. So the third month Jesse was diagnosed with his cancer and we were told that there was a really good chance that he would NOT be able to have children after the treatment because of where it is. So we sat down and discused the choice of using a sperm bank so we would still have the chance. Jesse then said well lets get married because I dont want anything to happen to me and for me not to have done right by you and at least married you. So I figured we could try for one more month and then start taking the pill again because I CAN NOT get pregnant while he is doing chemo and radiation. So Saturday night I was like "wait I was supposed to start my period a week ago." So I went to the store and got a pregnancy test, came home and took it. I have taken so many since we started trying so I was preparing myself for it to come back negitive and thought well maybe I have not started because I am stressed with everything that is going on. So as I sat and waited for the test results to come back I thought how this was really our last chance to get pregnant.. at least on our own. I looked town to see a plus sign....
IM PREGNANT!!!! Just thought I would let you know I am so excited and I have wanted this for so long. I am excited for my parents because they seem so excited to be grandparents. I know they will be great!

Hope everyones day is great!

The Final Outcome

On WED Jesse and I went to see his oncologist to see when we could start his treatments. The Dr. told Jesse that he wanted him to go to the place right next door for his radiation. Well once the Dr. left to call over there he found out that his ins wouldnt cover Jesse over at the place (RIGHT NEXT DOOR). The girls at the Dr. office quickly called the ins. company to get an override otherwise they wanted him to travel to Fresno (and that is about 45 min away from our house) everyday for treatment. Not only would that be hard for him, but hard for me who would take him there. He has to go everyday for about 10 weeks. Also, he wants to work as long as possible and if we go to fresno he wouldnt be able to. So Thursday comes and we get a call from the Dr. office and they tell him that the Ins. company denied his claim and he MUST go to Fresno. Jesse did all he could by calling the ins and all they did was give him the run around. He called the Dr. office this morning to find out the name of the Dr. he needs to see in fresno and the nurse gave him GREAT news! THE DR. PUT UP A FIGHT AND NOW JESSE DOES NOT HAVE TO TRAVEL THAT FAR HE CAN DO IT WHERE HE WAS SUPPOSED TO IN THE FIRST PLACE! The Dr. he goes to see now is only about 20 min away. He also found out his treatment plan :
Week 1- 96 hours in hospital while getting chemo
Week 2-4 radiation treatment mon thru fri
Week 5- 96 hours in hospital while getting chemo
Week 6-9 Radiation treament mon thur fri
After all that treament he is going back to see if the tumer is totally gone or not if it is still there they will do surgery and then 2 more weeks of treatment.

I am so greatful for those girls in that office for working so hard to help Jesse out. I know how stressed he was about how we would make it work going that far everyday seeing as his mom is getting rides to her treatment every day as well. I know that we will find a way for everything to work, not sure how but I know we will

Thank you all for all your prayers!

New News

As Im sure most of you have heard Jesse has colon cancer. We have been going to the doctors like crazy for the past month trying to figure out whats wrong with him. We found out yesterday and it was somewhat of a shock but it was the last thing it could be before we had to start the tests all over again. I am so greatful that he has a job with insurance so that he was able to catch this early. The doctors seems very sure that with chemo and radiation he should fully recover. He will have to be checked every year maybe twice a year just to be on the safe side. We go to see the doctor again on wednesday to set up the treaments. I am assuming that he will have 5 days of radiation and one day of chemo because of how early we caught it. We are still waiting to see if it has spread outside of his colon. If it has spread then he will have to do more chemo and radiation and thats when it starts to get REALLY serious because if it spreads to other orangs or the lymph nodes we are in real trouble.
I just want to say thank you for all the support and prayers that all of you have given. It means so much to me that everyone cares! I knew you all did but its nice to have this support system when you need it. I have been through this a couple times with people that I love and hope that I can offer some help to Jesse. We love you all tons!

Just starting

Well since all of my cousins and now my mom and dad have a blog....I thought it was about time! Well this is my blog....its actualy for Jesse and I even though not sure he will get on it! Ü So here is what I have been up to....

It was Jesses Birthday on Oct 22 so I bought him tickets to see the LA it was awesome! I have actually wanted to see them for quite some time. They came to Fresno (about 45 min from our home) and played a pre-season game. It was really fun because two of his really good freinds went too. Also the team they played had this guy (cant think of his name now) that was on the Warriors last year and we really enjoyed watching him play last year and it was an extra suprise that he was there to! Even though they lost it was still fun to go watch them play. Also, those guys are WAY bigger than they look on TV. I was sitting up about 15 rows from the court and I told Jesse "man I thought those guys would be way bigger!" He looked at me and laughed and said "oh yeah, go down there and look at them up close!" So I did and....he was right they are HUGE!

Here is a pic of Jess and I getting ready to go out to eat dinner on a saturda. He loves to act silly in all pictures.....there are only a few where he smiles at the camera! Wonder what he will do at our wedding?!

Here is my Daisy! One morning while I was sleeping I woke up to find only Otis next to me. So i listened to see if I could hear the other two pugs playing and nothing. So I got up and walked in to the hall way and could hear this noise in the pantry. I went over there to find daisy and Shelby in the pancake mix that was on the floor.

This is Daisy, Shelby and Otis. Otis and Daisy are my pugs and Shelby is my roomates pug.
