Morning folks. Sometimes it seems like 2 steps forward, and 3 back. Just as I am moving forward after the latest tussle with Timmy I get word that Boop is scheduled for double radical mastectomies. Damn! After having two partials, and weeks of radiation, we had hoped it was over for her.
As a male I can't begin to understand what this must mean for her. Being the trooper she is she's handling it better than I am. When you add to that her caring for her sister who has terminal cancer, worrying about me, and being the spirit that keeps us all going, you can see why I have so much respect for her.
I hesitated telling you this, but you guys have been so good with kind wishes that I'm sure she could use some of them at this time. She has never been one to look for sympathy, but each time I tell her that you ask about her I can tell it gives her comfort.
While some don't think it's a good idea to put personal pictures up, I want you to see who I'm talking about. This was taken earlier this year when I was taking her in for radiation treatments. Even then you could see the strength in her. Although we have been divorced a long time, this is the lady who has been a major part of my life for 46 1/2 years.
I thank you in advance for any kind wishes you can send. Be assured, they will be relayed to her.
