September 22nd, 2017

My next MRI is scheduled for early October.  I am sure there wont be any surprises on that.  

My latest battle is not health related, but health insurance related.  I wont go into details but I am torn.  I am grateful for what has been paid and taken care of but, the things that insurance gets hung up on and either wont pay, or is a pain in the ass to pay.  Out of network, non generic drugs...  grrr.

I am still walking a lot.  I can now do a mile in under 20 minutes.  It isn't pretty but I am getting it done.  I was told the other day that it appears my limp is getting to be less and less.
This past Tuesday was the first time that I have worn pants in 5 months.  No big deal right?  Nerves are a crazy thing.  I have locations on my left leg that if/when touch, cause strange feelings or movements.  When I put my jeans on, my leg was dancing all over the place.  Completely out of my control.  I wore jeans 2 days in a row (when I went into the office).  Once on, it was not too bad.

I have seen a couple of friends that I have not seen in a long time.  In a sick way, I have to thank cancer for that.  I also thank cancer for me taking a little bit more time to appreciate things and do things that I would not normally do.  

Please remember, things can change fast.  Take care of you.  Take it all in.  Enjoy the smallest of things.

Love to all.

Sept 6th, 2017

All is good with me.
I took a couple of days off last week and took a buddy, Jeremy, around the PNW and gave him a tour.  We hit the gorge (right before it all burned down) and then over to the beach the next day.  It was a blast.  We did a few hikes and lots of sight seeing.  I think we ate our way up the coast but that is not a bad thing. 

After I took Jeremy to the airport, the family loaded up for a few days at the island.  Lots of boating, tubing, rope swinging, berry picking, a lighted boat parade, and of course food. 

Thank you to all of my friends and family that were a part of this to make this a heck of a weekend.

Love to all.
