Update for my Friends

I've started this like 4 times and deleted.. Im just going to give this over to the Lord, and if I can get something out there that doesn't embarrass me.. Great.. Got a call from our pard Vaq this morning, and after it i started thinking about friendship, and what it means..

Ive always been pretty much a loaner.. You guys know how that is, some people need a lot of people in thier life, some dont.. After we retired i had a lot of calls from Staff, and when they started to taper off, (normal) i sorta pulled the plug on them to make it easier for everybody..

Don't know what happened on here, maybe just an odd combination of people, but for what ever reason, ive never had more REAL friends in all my life.. so with out whining about whats going on in our life, as im sure you guys are facing stuff just as bad, let me just say things are not good with Gary.. Prayers would sure be appreciated.. His only child, and my only Niece is also in the Hospital.. Both of them are suffering with Blood clots, the Niece (Martina) who is 41 has DVT in thigh, and two clots in the lung.. prognosis good..

Gary has two blood clots one in each of the carotid arteries.. Due to this his PT which is vital for recovery has been curtailed.. Goes without saying that prayers would be appreciated..

Gloria and i are both doing that try to keep the marbles on the table thing, so far we are..

Just know there is nothing i would like better than to be able to come on here and kick back with my pards.. Actually you guys have no idea how much i want that.. Soon as things settle down i will.. In the mean time.. sheesh i hate to say this, but its from the heart.. I love you guys like brothers.... Be on soon as i can,

a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.

Greg count me in too

Like Greasy it was a year of losing my closest,, but it doesn't have to be that way if the Lord does so deem it. We all do pray daily that the Lord still has a task for your(s) aye. The times are coming that he knows we all do and will need each other.. This place just happens to be the way we meet up.

I too offer my prayers for Gary and for Martina. I pray fervently that God, our Heavenly Father may lay his hand on both of them and heal them.

Is setting on pins and needles.
Thursday is a big day for him personally.
Right now, that's all I can say.
Pray for Greg guys.
If you don't pray, then do whatever it is you do.
Thanks.

Our Padre.

Guys, I just got off the phone with Greg. 6:05 pm central, 4:05 in AZ.
Honestly, I got an e-mail yesterday requesting thai fill yall in. I wanted to for Greg, I just couldn't.
So, now, I got too cause I just told him I would.
Greg went through the prostate cancer deal, radiation, the whole shebang.
They implanted radiation seeds in the area of the cancer because he was not a good candidate for the regular type. Greg has been pissing blood since last week. The round of tests prior to this indicated elevated levels of cancerous activity. (the PSA didn't look good).
The doc figured it was from the seeds. "See ya in a few months" type deal. So, now the doc is "concerned", but it might just be one of the implants has dislodged. Greg "gave all the samples" again Monday. The doc has told him, either you get good news "just a rouge implant" or you get bad news. Guys, on the bad, it's 5 years max. Greg is being Greg. He figures if it's 1 to 5, he will get 3 for good behavior. The results were due today, no word yet.
Our Padre is going through every emotion known everytime the phone rings.
Not knowing is hurting him more than anything. He said "I just don't want the guys to think I'm snubbing them, I just don't feel like getting online and trying to act like nothing is wrong".

There it is, it aint pretty, but there it is.

it would be to eliminate all disease everywhere, period. It is indiscriminatingly unfair, in my opinion. All the best to one of our best and his family.
