Welcome to our CaringBridge site. We’ve created it to keep
friends and family updated. We appreciate your support and words of hope during
this difficult time.

As some of you know we found an enlarged lymph node in
Jeremy’s neck in July before we left for our wedding. He saw a doctor that put
him on some antibiotics and said if it was still enlarged after we got back
from WA, then come back and we will do more tests. We went to WA for the
wedding and had a great time.

The node was still growing when we got home, so on August 29th
we went to see an Ear, Nose, and Throat doctor. He sent us to get an ultrasound
guided biopsy then then MRI. The biopsy came back as reactive. The MRI showed
Level 1 and 2 lymph nodes on the left and level 1 nodes on the right, as being enlarged.
With these findings we were referred to the Head and Neck oncology department
at the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC). We saw Dr. Lydiatt on
October 10th and he scheduled surgery to remove the largest lymph
node for biopsy as soon as we returned from our honeymoon on October 27th.

After a long 6 days on November 4th, we received a
call telling us the biopsy came back as Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. We were then
referred to Dr. James Armitage the UNMC’s lymphoma specialist.

Thus begins our journey……
