2 years

Today marks 2 years since Mike was diagnosed with cancer. 2 years!!  I sure did not ever think that we would have these last 2 years together, in fact I was positive that Mike would not make it through surgery but if there is one thing I have learned from this cancer scare is it has changed my life. I’m grateful for every new, healthy day he has. It has helped me prioritize my life. We have met some awesome people through this journey, people who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These people have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern.

Mike's health is about the same as last post. No much at all has changed with him. He continues to fight this battle everyday. He is a strong man but having cancer has been hard on him, I am blessed that we have our faith to get through this.

Always Remember that life is not waiting for the storm to pass -- but go out and play in the rain!
Thank God for everything -- never, never, never forget you are loved.

Thank you again to all of our family & friends who continue to be our rock!  We love you all more than you all will ever know!

Love & Hugs
