My Personal Blog
I haven't posted anything since last year... it's an oldie and a not so goodie. It has been a little over a month though. Mary's battle with cancer has been a remarkably simple one, knock on wood, so far. She gets tired and winded, and really complains about the smell that is in her nose (no one else smells anything funny), but other than having no hair and being tired, you wouldn't know she is sick. As a matter of fact, she is kind of cute without hair. We find out in a few weeks how well the treatment has worked and hopefully she is done with chemo. I sit in the waiting room at Roswell with Mary and we kid around and crack jokes. It feels awkward sometimes, but if we dwell on the down side of this, it will drag us to its own depth and leave us there in a pool of our tears. I have met some remarkable people in that waiting room. A mother who, knows she is dying, but is holding on to see her daughter graduate high school and start college, and doing this with a smile on her face and jokes a plenty. How brave. I have met people that have been fighting for years, who have just been maintaining for years, and who still have a zeal for life. I have also, seen those that seem to have lost hope, and sit in sorrow. This disease is horrible, deplorable, and truly evil. There has to be a better way to treat this disease. There has to be cures for the various types of cancer. Anyway, if your reading this, I want you to know that there is true love in the world. And, love for my fellow man, and my wife, is why I am doing this ride again, and hopefully again after that and after that until there is no more reason to ride.
