Greetings and Happy Halloween from the aisle at Walmart!
Since we don't get Trick or Treaters at our house (we live too far off the road, not in a subdivision either), this is about as exciting as it gets.
Enjoy this evening with the kids. Be safe. Have fun.
So I've been a little distracted lately and not kept up with posts. Here's an update on our youngest son's recent diagnosis of testicular cancer.
He's healed up nicely from surgery. I thought there's no better time in a young man's life than to get him acquainted with the necessity of... a pedicure! Yep, I took him for his first foot grooming. Results: it was a big hit. He loved it and wants to do it again. (His future wife can thank me now. Not that he has anyone picked out yet or even in mind. But one day, she will thank me. Whoever she may be.) (And this sweet lady in the chair between us, was very nice to let me snap some photos without freaking out that she was in the shot.)
This past Monday was his first day of chemotherapy. He came prepared: He had shaved his head (didn't want to see it coming out in clumps); had purchased several books to read while getting treatment, loaded his iPhone with favorite tunes; brought his new blanket to keep him cozy and most importantly, had a huge bag of beef jerky to munch on.
Just the picture of chillin' out, relaxing at the doctor's office.
He's a trooper. Still going to college. Still smiling. Still making jokes. I just love this kid. Today is his third treatment.
Thanks for your thoughts, concerns, prayers and well wishes.
They mean so much to us on
