I am a 41 yr old mother of 4 beautiful boys, ages 10, 8, 6 and 5. My husband also has 3 wonderful kids from a previous marriage ages 20, 18 and 16. I am somewhat of a specialist in childhood autism as 3 of my 4 sons are affected by it. I was recently diagnosed with stage 3 esophageal cancer. My sweet husband is devastated. We are dealing with this as best we can and try our best to keep up the laughter, but it is pretty scary right now for all of us. Update: as of April 2010, I am finished with first round of chemo and radiation. Will have surgery the first week in June. kinda nervous, but know I have a great surgeon, a wonderful support system and, faith in God to help us through . update July 17th_ 5 weeks post surgery. kept a blog if to document stuff. www.staceysupdates.blogspot.com
