Some Stuff to Share

I wanted to share this with you all since I come to this forum as an outlet to share my thoughts and to trade bits of trivia, and that I consider you my friends.  As I've alluded to before, I've been engaged to this woman, and we were set to have a wedding in September.  A month ago, she started to experience health trouble, and she had to be taken to the ER.  There, it was discovered that she had a tumor in her abdomen, and the tumor was taken out.  All indications from the surgeon was that it looked benign.  However, after they ran tests, they determined that there were cancerous cells inside the tumor.  Therefore, as a precaution, she has to undergo chemotherapy.  Her first round of chemo starts later this week.
 
We decided to postpone our wedding, but early on, to make sure she was insured during the procedure and for me to better represent her through her health crisis, we ended up having a quick wedding at a courthouse.  I wish it happened under better circumstances, but she is now officially Mrs. Hoxy.  
 
I definitely want you to keep us in your thoughts and prayers in this difficult time.  I'll still pop in and continue to post here since I need some positive therapy and to laugh.  Thanks guys!

    Wow...that is a whole lot of "stuff" to share.  Congratulations on the major life event; prayers for the health of the new Mrs. Hoxy, and, encouragement for both of you during this time.

    Don't cry because it's over; smile because it happened.

    Just wanted to pass along a happy update.  So my wife went through six rounds of chemo, so it was hard having her go through all the side effects.  But last week she had a PET scan, and it found no visible cancer in the scan.  So the doctor officially declared the cancer to be in remission!  We are so happy about this breakthrough.  Mrs. Hoxy still has to go in and get preventative treatments for the next year, and she's still dealing with the effects of the chemo still in her body, so please keep us in your prayers and thoughts.  I'm just glad to end 2016/start 2017 on a happy note!!

    Realized I haven't posted an update lately on how things are going in my wife's cancer fight.  Back in February, she had another surgery, which was thought to remove the cancer contained in that part of the body.  But she had some back pain that wasn't going away after a while, so after some scans, another tumor on her lower back was found.  Then we found later that the cancer has spread to at least her neck.  She started back on chemo last week, and she's currently on her third hospital stay this year.  It's definitely been pretty rough, but at least things are looking up more this week than there have been last week.  Plus, yesterday some people dressed in Star Wars costumes came by the hospital so that was a good pick-me-up for both of us.  We still need some thoughts and prayers through all these challenges.  Thank you.

    Some of you knew this since you're friends with me on Facebook, but with a heavy heart I wanted to let you all know that my wife passed away this weekend.  We were intending on having a wedding celebration that day, but instead with the guests it became a beautiful life tribute to her.  I just want to share what I posted to FB that night.  Thank you.
     
    My beautiful wife and best friend, Megan Hoxworth, is no longer suffering with cancer and instead is with Jesus tonight. We were going to have a celebration of our marriage today, which it still was, but also became a celebration of her life and all the people she has touched. I definitely appreciated all the love people have shown me today. I'm definitely hurting, as I didn't get much time here on earth with her as I wanted, but knowing she's now in peace and that I'll get to see her again is helping me through all this.
    My favorite speech of all time was by the late basketball coach Jimmy Valvano. He spoke at the ESPYs not long before he succumbed to cancer. It takes a new personal meaning as I remember Megan's fighting spirit: "Cancer can take away all my physical abilities. It cannot touch my mind, it cannot touch my heart and it cannot touch my soul. And those three things are going to carry on forever."
    I miss you, Megan. Until we meet again.

    Sorry for your loss Hoxy. I know in my heart that your wife is looking down upon you from Heaven and is thankful for the time you two had on this Earth together.
