My husband was diagnosed with testicular cancer a week and a half ago. He has had surgery to remove the tumor and with it, a testicle. He now will have a CT scan to see if it’s spread. The pathology report showed that it was contained in the testicle. After the CT scan, we will go to the IU cancer center for treatment, whatever that may be. We are now so thankful to live in the city with the top doctors for testicular cancer.

I could care less about a baby anymore. All I want is for my husband to live. If this sterilizes him, than so be it. So many people have brought up the baby stuff and have said they’re praying curing the cancer will cure our IF too. That’s sweet and all, but I don’t care right now. He is a gift that I’ve spent so much time taking for granted. No longer.

  3. I am so very sorry to hear this. What a complete shock! No doubt going through this will take precedence over all other things. Your entire family will be in my thoughts and prayers. Hoping for the best report and progress going forward for you!

  4. Oh my gosh. I am so sorry to hear this. What difficult and sobering news to get. I know it is so easy to get fixated on a baby when you’re trying and I imagine something like this just snaps you back to reality. Praying for complete healing and that God will be so sweet to you both during this intense suffering.

  5. Just thinking of you and hoping that all is moving in the right direction. Let us know how you’re doing when you feel moved to do so. I really hope that surgery, treatment, etc. is going as well as can be expected.

  6. I rarely post on these blogs, but ran into this today while looking at another blog. My husband had testicular cancer when we first got married. We went through the surgeries and he has been cancer free for over 8 years. We are currently in the IVF process. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me. I know how scary it is, but it sounds like they caught it early.

  7. I just found your blog through Emily. It is a great reminder of what true gifts our spouses are. Sometimes you get so caught up in infertility that you take the love of your life for granted. I’m so sorry that your husband has to go through this. Hoping he beats cancer!
