Howdy Folks !

I came back to my Mom's until tomorrow(Friday) , then I'm going back to Marge's. She finished her radiation treatment(10 of them) this past Tuesday.She's doing pretty well considering. The test came back and the rest of her body is cancer free. We were worried about that. So thats one Prayer answered. She does have stage 4 brain cancer, 2 small tumors and 1 that is around a 2 inch mass. So she has a long way to go. She's staying pretty positive, better than I probably would. She will know in 6 weeks if the radiation treatment shrunk the tumors. I hope and Pray that is has. She's also beginning to lose her hair, I had hoped that would not happen.

She is so happy i'm staying with her, we can talk to each other. You know "really" talk, better than we can the rest of the family. Her 15 year old Grandaughter(Samantha) lives with her, I have been taking her to school. She's a good kid, Marge is very worried what will happen to her if things get bad. Samantha's parents have not been very good at parenting.

I told her again about you all "Praying" for her. I swear it made her so happy. She said "Kenny, you mean all those people are praying for me ?" I said yes, that you all are a very special bunch of folks. I told her that there is no other forum like this one. I'm serious, it really made her feel good. I told her that we Pray and give positive vibes to all the sick folks, friends and relatives around here.

Then she started talking about how she really liked the Allman Brothers. She's 67, so it blew my mind when she mentioned "Statesboro Blues, One Way out, Ramblin Man and "Whipping Post". I played "Shade of Two Worlds" and "Where it all Begins" for her when we were riding around. She liked "Temptation is a Gun" and "No one left to run with" the most. She said Gregg has a one of a kind voice and that he can still sing so good. I had to tell her the "Duane and Berry" stories and about the "Fence Fund". She said it took special people to put that money up for that fence. I told her about Brother Bobo and how you all did so much good for his family. she asked me to bring some of the older stuff when I go back tomorrow. So I went by my house and got "Eat A Peach" and The "Back to where we all belong" compilation. Also the Beacon DVD. It was cool that she was really getting into it.

I'm gonna stay two more weeks and come back to my Moms for a day here and there.

Then I'm going home the first week of March and returning back to work that week. It has been 4 months since I have worked. so thats gonna be a little scary for me.

I talked to my boss today, I'm not going to be driving anymore. I'm going to be a Supervisor again and i'm getting a raise also.

I was H.R. Manager until the stress got to me 2 years ago, was a driver for the last year. Now i'm going to be a "Route and Employee Evaluator'. I will ride with drivers and evaluate the route and their job performance. I will once again have an office and they are getting me a new lap top PC. I had gotten tired of working there, so I also applied at Home Depot and Lowes. But I'm willing to give my new position a try.

I'm still having some morning anxiety, but hopefully returning to work and staying busy will help me get better and stay better.

Marge told me she wanted me to come live with her, but I have my own house I have to deal with right now. I will spend some time with her after I return to work.

She gets worried about whether she will make it, she told me that if she's unable to make it she wonders if she will suffer. It makes me want to cry. I do when she's not in the room.

I want to "Thank you" all for making her happy and to feel a little better, because you did. She said your Prayers mean a lot to her and they do. I could tell.

I also want to "Thank You" all for the support and care you have given me in what so far has been the roughest 4 months in my life. I swear I hope I never get down that bad again. I have never felt so much fear in my life.

I can't say enough words about how special some of you have been to me, it's amazing that there is so many great people here. You all have been so good to me.

Your all a special bunch of people.

I hope and Pray so hard that Marge gets to stay with us for years to come. It's hard to imagine life without her. I love her so much. She told me I have always been her little "Buddy". She said when I was a little boy that she used to take me with her everywhere she went. I remember a lot of it.

Love to ya,
Kenny
