Thanks for all your concerns.  You are a great bunch.  I'm on my way back to the hospital.  I am having trouble posting.  I keep getting booted off the site.  That's why I did not write much on post.  If you recall, he had surgery on 9th, devolped an Ileus and was in the hospital until the 18th.  Had to go to ER on 21st and now back in hospital with clot.  He has never had any major surgery until Robotic surgery.  His name is Larry and he is 57 years old (birthday coming up on July 26).  We celebrated our 36th wedding anniversary at the hospital last week:)  This has been a hard road for both of us, but we both know who is in control.  One definite positive is that cancer was contained and margins are clear.

Keep praying.

Dear Larry & wife of 36 years....

Our thoughts and prayers surround you as you continue to battle unexpected stones in your path.  We are so thankful that you feel our presence…. And we know you pull from “all of us” the strength that we send to you and Larry.  Keeping you extra close at this time.  It is definitely a stressful time and our hearts go out to both of you.  


Keep this positive thought (cancer was contained and margins are clear)...tucked close to you.... and it will truly help sustain you...


In Friendship ~ Lee & Buddy


“God Bless You”

It's a little prayer  ~  "God Bless You" ...but it means so much each day,

It means may angels guard you and guide you on your  way.
