A lot of folks here know that I started on this forum a little over a year ago, right before Wanee II and right after my sweetheart Mr. Jones was diagnosed with inoperable, stage 4 lung cancer. He was going thorugh chemo last year and couldn't come with me to Wanee. We thought this year might be our last chance to come together, and we ordered the tickets as soon as they were available.

A couple of months ago, Mr. Jones started acting like a total a$$hole. I started getting nervous about Wanee and how he could ruin it. About 3 weeks ago, he started having bizarre but mild symptoms that I thought might be due to depression. I begged him to go to the doctor, but of course, he refused. He felt too bad to go to Wanee, and was acting like such a jerk that I honestly didn't know if I could get the tickets from him to go myself.

To make a long, horrible story a little shorter, he finally went to the doctor today, and the cancer has spread to his brain in two different places. First they're going to do a cyber knife treatment specific to the two tuimors, and then whole brain radiation.

When his behavior became erratic, I dropped off this board, not intentionally, but because I just didn't have anything to say, or maybe just no energy left to pretend that I was OK. But, it was weird, even when I wasn't looking at the forum, I would think about y'all, and maybe something I wanted to post...

I am so glad I got to go to Wanee without knowing about the brain mets. I was able to forget my worries, literally leave my blues at home. Still, today, even after all this terrible news, a Wanee memory made me smile.

I just want to thank you all, from the bottom of my heart, for all the great conversation, the musical discoveries, and just the general joy and thoughtfulness you've given me. And we appreciate the prayers. I know many of you are always with me in spirit.

rlrichie I'm praying for you and Mr. Jones. Cancer is the worst illness, my wife lost her dad last year to cancer that spread to his lungs, bones and kidneys. Keep your spirits up.
