    Rick - I'm so very sorry to hear about the Mrs. health issues. I'll pray for her, you, and the family. The both of you are such great people, God bless you both.

    Sorry to here that Rick. Hope everything works out. Three years ago I was told I had a tumor on my spinal cord. I had surgery and ten days later was waiting to start chemo. When the doc came in and said it was a noncancerous tumor and no chemo or radiation. What a relief. Will keep ya'll in my prayers.

    I'm saddened to read this news, Rick. Take heart in knowing that medical science has made incredible advances in recent years. In the fall of 2013, I received back to back news that a family member and a very close friend had both been diagnosed with brain tumors. Each of them underwent major brain surgery, and the prognosis for both is excellent today. Hang in there, my friend. Your wife, you, and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

    Thoughts and prayers for you and your wife Rick. I am so glad that there is at least some good chance that she will get through this with hopefully no lasting affects!

    My wife had surgery Wednesday and the news is not good. They were able to remove about 90% of the tumor. We have to wait on the pathology report on the tumor but the surgeon is sure it's a glioblastoma. That's a highly invasive form of cancer and there is no cure. We spoke with the radiation oncologist yesterday and she'll begin radiation five days a week for six weeks beginning in about two weeks. They have to wait until she's healed from the surgery. We are seeing the chemo oncologist this morning. Average life expectancy is 14.6 months. At some point they will have to stop treatment because you can only take so much chemo and radiation. At that point the tumors always return. Everyone is different. We know one person with the same diagnosis that has lived close to 5 years. So we're taking it one day at a time and hoping for the best.

    Thank you all for your well wishes and your prayers. You don't know how much it is appreciated.

    Just about everyday I sit and watch the sun come up and plan my day. This morning I'm thinking about how special life really is. The way I see it, no day should be wasted. I will hope for the best outcome for your wife. You have a good bunch to help you carry the load and I am wishing you all the best.

    I only just now saw this thread and am deeply saddened that you are both going through this very challenging time. You will both be in my daily prayers with good thoughts and virtual hugs sent along the way. God and medicine work in mysterious ways and may hope and trust in both sustain you and keep your spirits high.

    I'm keeping you and your wife in my thoughts and prayers, Rick. If there's anything we can do to help, we're only a phone call away.

    Not much I can say, but I'm watching the thread and keeping ya'll in my prayers.
    True enough, my final home is still out there, but this is most certainly my home range and I love it. I love every rock I fall off and tree I trip over. Even when I am close to dying from exhaustion, a beautiful sunset doesn't lose it's power to refresh and inspire me and that, in itself, is enough to save me sometimes.
