Beaudoin’s Story

Site created on November 4, 2020

Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.

Our journey began in early summer when I started to suffer from extreme fatigue and blurry vision. This culminated with a trip to the ER on September 28 when I felt like I was having kidney stones. From there on came a month worth of tests and weekly blood transfusions until a diagnosis was made a month later on October 28th that I had Waldenstroms Macroglobolunemia a very rare form on Lymphoma which produces too much IgM protein in the blood causing it to thicken.

We’ve had a rough first few treatments and some scares along the way but we are adjusting, both to life with cancer and to the isolation of the pandemic. But we have had great support from family and friends. A blessing to say the least and we will fight on.

Chemotherapy round 4

As we wait for the side effects of this round of chemo to hit we take a moment to thank friends and co- workers who send thoughtful little gifts to cheer Rob up and to help keep his mind in top top shape 
Gun safety for cats folks is very important-

I was lucky enough this round to give rob his needle this round- notice how he clearly made sure to read all the directions to me (Just for clarification it took 20 minutes, multiple countdowns, some crying and freaking out in the kitchen before this got done. We would make the worst heroin addicts EVER).

Stay warm- stay safe
