Revelation

Hello everyone.  Just thought I owed everyone an explanation for my absence these last few weeks.  Long story, short… my wife, Kristine, was diagnosed with Paget’s disease on December 14, 2012.  Paget’s is a rare form of breast cancer.  However, being a rare form doesn’t mean it’s any more or less dangerous than other forms of breast cancer (at least according to my limited knowledge). 

Anyway, Kristine faces surgery and chemotherapy very soon now.  It is still too early to know all that lies ahead at this point.  Normally I include an appropriate graphic in my posts, but the sight of the cancer images available prevented me from doing that.  For those that know Kristine personally, please respect her privacy.  She really isn’t up to discussing this with everyone.  If you must, I’d rather you send her a card to let her know she’s in your prayers.

Finally, I will continue to place posts here about Gracie and our cause on an irregular basis.  Obviously you understand Kristine’s welfare is my overriding concern at this point.

    Dennis, so sorry to hear about Kristine. Hears hoping for a successful recovery. We’re in a similar boat. Last week we discovered Lynn has uterine cancer. We see the oncologist tomorrow. We’re hoping a hysterectomy takes care of it, but one never knows. Anyway, all the best to you guys!
