I Hope Ya'll Are Doing Well

It's been a long couple of days.

Michelle and I went to see her Oncologist yesterday and learned that the tumor in her liver has increased in size from six months ago by ten to fifteen per cent. As always, Michelle took the news like the champion she has always been throughout this ordeal. I don't know how, but this time, I managed to hide my emotions upon hearing the news. I've never been one to fear much of anything but I swear this cancer beast chills me to the marrow sometimes.

I know it sounds trite but honestly, I don't know what I would do without my precious wife.

Dr. Davis told her that while the increase wasn't extremely alarming, he felt that it was best to start attacking the problem immediatly. He told us that he wanted her to begin in new round of chemo in two weeks. Totally in character, Michelle laughed and said, "Well, at least I won't have to shave my legs for awhile again!"

She is friggin' amazing!

I don't know what I did to deserve such a wonderful woman but I am truly blessed. The thought of losing her EVER is overwhelming sometimes but the strength that she displays every day is like a salve for my soul. She is simply amazing.

We made our phone calls to family and friends who were anxiously awaiting news of the doctor's visit and without exception, Michelle comforted EVERYONE! She told them that, "There ain't nothing that GOD can't fix!".

Have I mentioned that she's amazing?

Oh yeah......

Guess what she did today?

She took the weed eater up into the woods behind our house and hacked down about an acre of brush and small trees and talked to God the entire time.

She came in from the woods looking like a miniature lumber jack, ran up and kissed me and asked me if I was okay.

"You know something big boy?" She laughed. "I love you too much to go anywhere so you stop worrying about me!"


I'll talk to ya'll again real soon.
