I'm going out for lunch with my three sister in laws today Wendy is Mark's sister I've mentioned awhile ago about her husband having kidney Cancer his first bout was about 25 years ago his surgery was 23 hrs several surgeons worked on him they took one kidney and several spots on his lungs which left him with lungs of a 70 year old, he'll be 59 this Monday, he had thyroid cancer about 7 yrs ago about 2 yrs ago he had lung surgery again to remove Cancer, back in May he had several rounds of massive radiation then 33 rounds of regular radiation Bob and Wendy found out on Tuesday none of it worked but actually spread into his one remaining kidney and more in the lungs plus it was already in a couple of his lymph nodes ugh stage 4 low grade Cancer!  Once his insurance okays it he'll start chemo pills and every 3 weeks he'll do some form of intervenious! I don't think I spelled that right anyway they gave him 12 to 18 months to live doing these treatments with the hope of new breakthroughs coming! Wendy said she thought she was prepared BUT of course she wasn't. Anyway neither one ever smoked BUT he was an auto body painter for years, my point is sometimes things happen that breaks our hearts because we have no control over it BUT damn it we do have control over smoking or quitting smoking, we all know that smoking kills and it doesn't matter who you are or where you live it's bound to catch up with you at some point! I'm sorry maybe I shouldn't be writing this BUT I'm posting it anyway! Quit smoking if you haven't yet and if you have quit and you're struggling you may not believe me BUT you will get through the roller coaster ups and downs and into that good place in your quit BUT you must believe it and stick with N.O.P.E and vigilance N.M.W - No Matter What.....

your life is literally counting on you.....

I almost forgot that it's HUMP DAY! Let's stick with our precious quits so each evening we can look ourselves in the mirror and say YAY for another Day WON it's up to us to look after ourselves because if we don't nobody else can do it for us......

Here's our patio area that my husband Mark built he set our Flags out yesterday so I thought I'd share this pic I took the Flag on the back entrance of the house is the Acadian Flag......
