Wow Day #7

Cheri was allowed to go home from the hospital yesterday and seems in good spirits. Tomorrow, we might know whether or not this is actually cancer we’re dealing with. All indications are that it is. Everyone is, sort of, in a state of holding off on any significant emotion for now. They and I are…

Wow Day #4

Yesterday was pretty uneventful for my mother-in-law. There was an attempt at putting a stent into her bile duct and performing a biopsy on her pancreatic tumor.

Wow Day #2

Back in 2010, my mom had a liver transplant. I remember that being a great day because we had had so many trying times leading up to it. We knew Mom was going to be okay. It was just a matter of how long it took her to get a new liver. Yesterday, my mother-in-law…

I lost count of the times I found myself shaking hands with one of the Grand officers and had no idea. They’re just normal guys and brothers, like…

3rd Lecture Complete

I decided a while back that I was going to attempt to learn my 3rd degree lecture without any other help. This means that I have no way to learn it other than going to 3rd degrees around my area. Well, tonight I finally turned in the lecture in an opened lodge. That’s a nice…
