R.I.P. Aretha Franklin - She died this morning, reportedly from an 8-year fight with Pancreatic Cancer, although her team kept her cause for the illness under wraps. We wish her family peace and healing in the days to come.

After a long 2 weeks of taking care of my Mother-in-law, sitting with her in ICU while she made her last, ultimate journey, we came home and layed her to rest. That night we went to the creek behind our homes where she used to like to go to have a fire and cook a hot dog and smores. We had a few dogs and marshmallows and a toast to "Maw Maw".

Have you reached this critical point in your cancer journey? Which way did you go?

Sweetie got me a new shirt. All of this holds true for me. If I had to count how many times I've been stuck I probably couldn't add them all up.

I was once stuck 9 times before an IV could get started. That's my record! And, it was from 5 different people.

What's your record?

In the interest of honoring our slogan, "live your life, not your cancer", Donna and I got out last night and went to see some friends play music, I managed to weasel my way on stage and play a few songs with them. Our second night in a row getting into bed at 2:30, #OldDudesRock

We lost my Mom to lung cancer in 2014, missing her this month with all the talk about lung cancer.

This is another barn wood door I made for Donna. This one is almost 2" thick and stands 84" tall and 36" wide. It's going to be on a sliding rail to close up, or cover the door opening.
