    Smoke sent! I'll be thinking good thoughts. Bad news but good luck to catch it hopefully before it can spread.

    We shared the news with our kids and grand kids today. For a number of reasons today was the best day to do so. We explained the situation in detail and reinforced over and over they they should not be afraid to talk about it or ask questions. We encouraged them to be very open. This is life. There are hills and sometimes mountains that we encounter and we simply face them and keep moving. The worst thing is to pretend it isn't happening. It was a good discussion. A shock to them, obviously, but we had a good dialogue. She's a strong woman with a positive outlook. She told them she had three babies without anesthesia so she was pretty sure she could handle this. The gal's got guts.

    Rick
    just saw your post. You and the Mrs. are in our prayers and if it's okay with you we'll add you to the church prayer chain.
    If by what I have learned over the years, allow me to help one person to start to prepare. If all the mistakes I have made, let me give one person the wisdom that allows them to save their life or the life of a loved one in an emergency. Then I will truly know that all the work I have done will have been worth every minute.

    Rick, somewhere in these posts was a comment of HOPE. There is always hope. I have been through so much in the last twelve years, before that I would have said 'no way', but here I am. I survived three heart attacks within 36 hrs, after smoking heavy for close to sixty years, survived lung cancer and so far am cancer free for three years now. A friend from church told me after the heart attacks, that God must have a plan for me yet, even through I feel lucky to be alive, and again after the cancer which I barely made it through, we just don't know.
    There is always hope, some times it's just hard to see when we are over loaded with our problems. Bottom line, keep a stiff upper lip, and every thing will come out ok.
    I still remember one evening when I was nursing my late wife, she asked me why I was being so nice to her, and I said I love you, and the wedding vows said, for better or worse. Well some times it gets a little worse, and other times it's just plain great.

    Every time an older person dies, its like burning a full set of encyclopedias that will never be published again. So, if you ever want to learn more of anything, just find a old tradesman and hang out with him and then when he passes on, not the full set will burn, you'll have parts of it to pass on to others.

    Rick prayers of healing and patience for you and your wife. Sorry to hear about this.... I have been very quiet as I have been going thru the same thing with my dad since February. Cancer of the bladder. I am not well known here, but my thoughts are with you... Give it time... This is going to be an emotional roller coaster for both of you. Above all, lots of hugs, support, and keep it very positive, & remember to smile.

    My dad - is in remission and still giving stuff away, very depressed after making it thru. Feel free for a sounding board, seen it all now.

    Prayers going out for your wife and yourself. Just remember to take care of yourself too. Running yourself ragged helps neither of you. Be strong mate.
