Our dear friend War Eagle has updated his website. I wanted to share it with all those concerned:


I am certain he is reading his guestbook, and maybe even here.

If you are reading, your friends here thank you for the update. We all miss you and love you very much. You touched so many at HealingWell. Ruthie and I miss you and Miss Johnnie very much. It was our first time to Birmingham when we came to see you guys, and I remember it like it was yesterday. We met some very special people and made some life long friends. Your courage and faith have always been evident and we know you are in good hands.

May peace and love always be with you...

Your friends,

Tony and Ruthie

Geez, was glad to hear about him but that is a pretty sobering report he posted. If ever a miracle was needed, there's a man that deserves one. I hope only the best for him. Thanks for sharing the update.

Tony, thanks for the link to Walt's Caring Bridge website. Just visited it and left a message for him and his dear wife. I was so sorry to read his story - he is a strong, courageous man from whom we can all learn something.

Apex margin, bladder neck and SV negative. Final Gleason 3+4. PSA: 0.0 til July 2009. August 2009- 0.1, September 0.3, October back to 0.0, December 0.0. Thank you God!
