Summer is Fading

A church friend lost his wife over the weekend after a brief, but intense, battle with cancer. Linda was 52. She left behind a husband, special needs daughter and a teenage son. Most everyone found out the news at church on Sunday morning (as she passed away at 6:30 am that morning). People gasped. I had a hard time concentrating on anything beyond that news. Why Lord? Why? Please help us understand why. Another family permanently changed by cancer.

Lindy’s “pressure” headaches have returned full-force the last several weeks. All the characteristics match the headaches she had prior to her brain cancer diagnosis last summer. She’s so strong; she fights through them while still trying to care for the kids. She downplays it, but I know she’s in pain. It hurts me to see her suffer – she doesn’t deserve this kind of life. Dr. Schott at the University of Michigan Cancer Center is trying to get her brain MRI moved up from mid-September. We’re hoping this can happen yet this week. It’s not something they / we take lightly. I’ll post an update once we find out more.

Lindy and I were able to get away for our 13th wedding anniversary to Boyne Mountain last week. We had a wonderful time reconnecting. Many thanks to Rebecca Perkins and Taressa Sprick of Five Star Realty for the gift certificate. People are so kind to us.

  2. Hi there! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog. Is it very difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where to start. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Many thanks

  3. this issue. I really like all of the points
