Life

Life is what happens when you were making other plans. 
It's been a stressful week, my husband has been diagnosed with cancer.
At the hospital for further testing today. Prayers for strength and healing greatly appreciated.

  2. I was thinking that some of the things happening on our farm were a bit stressful, but your news puts everything in perspective. My prayers are with you both. I do hope all goes well with your husband's treatment and that you have a good group of doctors to work with.

  3. Oh Becky.......Please know that there are caring folks all around you and lots of prayer for the best possible outcome. I once heard a spouse of a cancer survivor say, "We both had cancer, because I was there every single second". You can fight this together.
    I'm a survivor and I'm here to tell you that this thing can be beat! Love and hugs to you and your hubby.

  7. Thanks to you all for the prayers and good vibes. I know dealing with this won't be easy, but I am overwhelmed at all the support of friends and family. We're both feeling somewhat relieved after today's tests. We should find out more on Thursday when we go back down and speak to a surgeon. He has esophageal cancer which makes eating difficult. Those of you who know Stan know that he doesn't have much weight to lose. I'll be making lots of lamb stew in the coming weeks.

    God bless you all!

  14. Yes Gail, he's going to the Virginia Piper Institute at Abbott Northwestern. He had surgery yesterday afternoon and I didn't get home until late last night. He might come home tomorrow on on Monday the 4th. I have to clean up the house, buy feed and check on our hay which was supposed to be baled yesterday...we had 2" of rain last night.
