One Day At A Time

One Day At A Time

Just want everyone to know how its going with us.  The outpouring of cards, prayers, and well-wishes is overwhelming.  When you’re going thru some difficulties it means so much to both Phyllis and I.  She is, by the way, the best care-giver who God ever blessed someone with in this crazy world.

We’ve gone thru the first sequence of chemo treatments with very little difficulty.  Except for the mental stress I’ve got no discomfort at this point.  We have an appointment at another cancer center for a second opinion Feb. 4, 2016.  Goal is to stop disease and try to prevent its spread.

We’re setting short-term goals and longer ones.  Short-term to celebrate my 79th birthday March 29th 2016, long-term the 80th just one year later.  We’re not dealing with garden variety bladder cancer, but we’re being cautiously optimistic.  Times like this help you decide what’s important in this life.  Have a meeting scheduled with the boys on Saturday Jan. 30, 2016 to discuss the whole picture.  Unfortunately since Alexandra is in Des Moines, Iowa she can’t be there.  Know she would be if she could.  The Midwest winter does complicate things.

Meanwhile love your creatures and love each other.  Love is something this world can use more of every day.

Think about it!!!
