Hello friends! It's been a few days since I was last on here! It seems a lot longer, though. So much going on - and as usual - so many pages to catch up on that I don't have the time to do... so CRUD


I spent the past weekend at a Scouting training course for adult leaders - Wood Badge, the highest level of adult training there is. This was weekend 1 of 2 (the next one is in a month) - in the woods, far from any internet connections and having poor cell phone service. It was awesome. Very busy, intense kind of training - full, long days, sleep quite elusive - but I had a blast. And it helped to refresh me to come back home and deal with the family stuff going on and better support my wife as well. Her dad does indeed have cancer. He has a form of lung cancer. He is within the approximate 10% of lifelong non-smokers that have it and the docs, while unsure, are estimating it's been there growing for the past 2-3 years. It's affecting his lungs, liver and kidneys, as well as numerous ones around his hip, pelvis and back. The docs are saying without chemo he probably has about 4-6 months. With it he might have 1-3 years. But they don't yet know if he will be able to do the chemo, because the tests for his strain of the cancer he has aren't back in yet. One strain responds to chemo, one doesn't. So my DW will be on a plane 2 weeks from tomorrow heading west to spend a couple of weeks with him, I made the reservations Friday right after she got the diagnosis report. She didn't want to disappoint our DD and ask me to postpone our Daddy Daughter Adventure - so we'll actually pass in the airport as we land at 1 on the 8th coming back from FL, and she'll take off at 3:30 heading west. At least DD will be able to hug mommy before being separated for a couple of weeks. Sigh.

Lots going on, that's for sure. I hope to get back into the swing of things soon.

Chris-
I'm so sorry to hear this news. I hope that your FIL has the treatable cancer. I hate cancer.

I'll be thinking and praying for you guys.

My Prayers are with you and your family, a friend of mine's father had pretty much the same thing, he had a span of 1-6months , he was a merchant marine, started taking alot of shark cartilage pills (learned in his years that sharks don't get cancer), beyond Docs belief it went into remission and lived 6 more years to the age of 82. Don't know if it was the will to live or the shark cartilage, but something woked out, everything thing seemed normal in his everydays till the last few weeks. I hope the best for your family.

WOW! I've been out for a bit since we were at WDW last week, and here we go with a new DisDad thread #5! Impressive that the membership is so strong...

Guys, I just have to share that I am having serious Disney withdrawal since we got back. We planned the trip for almost a year, and my kids were just at the right age to really appreciate the trip. We are already planning a return, but it seems to be forever before we get back.

Anyway, looking forward to getting back into the Dis groove on the site.

I try to avoid showing my son things like this, fearing that he will get ideas. Granted, he's only 3, but he already stages elaborate crash scenes with his toy cars.

You know the best way to get back into the groove and out of your withdrawal? Trip Report! Oh yeah, and welcome home.

=======================

After work today, I'm packing up the family and heading to Kentucky for a long weekend. It's a combined 10th anniversary trip / end of summer bash. DW and I were doing some last minute packing/planning last night when I realized that I forgot the name of the ice cream place that was so highly recommended. A quick Google search this morning, and I now have a map of all of the Graeter's locations in the Louisville area. Whew, close one there.
