Over the past couple of months, Mike has joined us as a new blogging friend. In one of his messages Mike shared with us he gas been diagnosed with prostate cancer.
Since that time Mike and I have exchanged emails. In his last email Mike revealed this Thursday he is scheduled for an MRI. This to check to see if the cancer has spread.
Mike asked that I post a prayer request on his behalf, which I am most happy to do. I pray the cancer has not spread, which if only in the prostate is much easier to treat.
i ask prayers please

Vi is struggling with her greatly decreased physical abilities. Not knowing what is happening adds to that stress.
about 2 months ago, she had procedures done to alleviate pain in both of her legs. Now it helped with the right leg but definitely made it worse for the left leg. Any that know Vi, know she is like the energizer bunny constantly on the run. That running has been changed to a slow and short walk. The pain becomes such she as to stop and rest.
Now she is not the type to let this stop her. Things like trips to the store are only made when necessary no longer the trips made on a whim. I can go but there are times when she gets cabin fever and just wants to get out. It has been very humbling and even embarrassing for her to accept that a wheel chair is now needed. A lot of stores now have motorized wheel chair shopping carts.
as humbling as it may have been accepting the fact a wheel chair is required. I has also been liberating for her. Vi and I are different shoppers. I go in with a list of 10 things, I pick those 10 things am in and out in minutes. Vi on the other hand loves to stroll/ride through the isles for seemingly hours looking for specials, new products and I don’t know what. I go with a list of 10 things and come home with 10 things. She goes in with that same list and comes home with 50 things. By accepting the need for the motorized wheel chair she is back to leisurely rolling the isles. I think shopping is linked to female DNA. Lol. I guess it proves you can’t keep a good woman down and where there is a will, there is a way.
Awaiting C scan results. She sees the vascular surgeon on May 7th, who we hope by now has a plan B. It is one thing to go into a surgery and not have it work. That has happened to me. But, it is a totally different situation when you go into a surgery and come out worse.

I rarely check the blog stats anymore. It sort of amazes me each time I do. Man, do I ever like to ramble, this is post #1275, I wonder how many words that would total to.
yesterday, I was just laying on the bed thinking. I was thinking about the blog and how by now I must have shared my thoughts and feelings on just about everything you could think of. As I pondered on it, I realized some of those thoughts and feelings are important to me. Things I would like to share, but then I think well I already have shared them. As I thought though I realized some of those thoughts and feelings could even be 1,000 posts ago and could have even be written 6 or 7 years ago.
i am going to go back and revisit many of them, see how time may have changed my view. This could be interesting

Lots of things been going on, keeping busy. It is amazing how days can go by. It so often seems I was busy all day long but then at night when I look back on the day I realize I was busy doing nothing.
I realize every so often I must post what I consider the rules of the blog when it comes to comments. I read all comments, I always appreciate anyone taking the time to leave a comment. All comments whether they be long or short, full of feelings, wisdom or even just a simple hello are read and treasured.
if you disagree with something I say, far enough. As long as that comment doesn’t contain foul language I will let it stand. What I will not allow to remain are any comments that I perceive as being in any way negative towards anyone else that has taken the time to write a comment. This is a safe haven for all to share thoughts, feelings, emotions or what ever.
This morning I deleted a comment. OK, this is based on my perception of the words written but this is my blog. The words “brain dead” have a negative connotation in my mind anyway and that comment is gone.
Please let’s keep this a safe haven for all. I would never want anyone to be hesitant to post their thoughts or feeling out of fear they may be ridiculed, it will not happen
