A catching up; of sorts:

Letter read last night at my Support Group by Chris.

Hello everyone,

Since the last time we met a lot has happened in the world. The earth has moved, water has rose, volcanoes have blown and the Queen (God love her) jumped out of a helicopter!

I will be honest with you all; I have not been feeling well for a few months now. I have been blacking out and I have fallen a few times. I have had several neck thingy bobs, which is technical jargon for Carotid Duplex Ultrasound and MRi. See, neck thingy bob is much more understandable. Blood work up the kazoo and I am in the process of meeting and breaking in several new to me Doctors and helping put their children through college or paying off their mortgages. I am sure they will get use to me soon but I always have fun with health care professionals.

They are always so nice and that’s OK, but after a few minutes going over my medical history they tend to become rather attentive. They quickly realize that the same- o same- o did not just walk in. I tend to have the upper hand in all areas except billing. No one wins that battle.

The long and short of it as of this evening is I don’t know. Tests are still being done and evaluations are still being drawn. May be next month I will have some real news to pass along. Until then, I will continue to uphold my part in the doctor/patient process. (And have a little fun with these guys.

My mom is still with us. It is a slow and rather agonizing process. My prayer every night is that I may outlive her. She is still a blessing to those she is around and I know that inside, she is at peace.

I am not sure about all of you, but I am rather tired of this heat. As we move into September I know the hard part is behind us for another year but this dry heat crap is getting old. I tell friends to turn their oven to 106 and stick their head in that. IT’S A DRY HEAT!

Other than that crap, life is very good and I have so much to be thankful for. Why just last week my daughter in law texted that she wasn’t sure how it happened but I was going to be a grand-father yet again. For those counting; this will be number EIGHT. Damn I’m old!

Issue number 12 of the Justice League with a cover price of $3.99 is selling on e-bay for $25.00. Ha, I got mine. For details, consult Chris!!

I continue to LIVE my friends; I truly hope you don’t mind. I love you all and I wish and pray for you all - happiness and good health.

Be strong for each other because both Cancer really sucks.
