Good morning guys,
Cedar, the "War Eagle" is in honor of Auburn University. The story is old about a civil war vet who found a wounded Golden Eagle, nursed it back to health. He took the bird to a football game, Auburn was behind and needed some inspiration. The bird took-off, circled the field many times, the crowd responded by yelling "War Eagle".The team responded, winning the game. The bird then fell dead, completing his mission. The tradition continues today with an eagle soaring at every home game.
We all need some inspiration to continue the fight and win the game.................."War Eagle" to all of you.
As for my PSA, it never got down to 0.00. The lowest we saw was 0.12, this lasted for almost one year before starting to rise again. As for the pain, I have tried some hydrocodone (500 mg.). It works, it works too well. I don't want to drive on this type of med. The pain comes and goes but I always feel a pressure on my spine and some discomfort in my ribs. Nothing I can't handle, the best med for pain is prayer. I have a great support group at church and my Wed. night small group. I am on so many prayer lists that I have lost count. This is a real good thing.
Anyway, I need to get ready for work. I will search out the others ya"ll talked about. This is great. I now have other brothers who know how I feel and can walk with me as I continue on my journey. Keep it up, brothers.
