I just wanted to share some good news……with all the bad news that is spread daily I thought that a little good news can’t hurt. My husband has been pretty ill for the last year and being that he is pretty tough; I never had any doubt of his ability to make it through just about anything. He started having some problems with an enlarged spleen and some other weird happenings where he felt something was wrong. After six months of this Doctor and that Doctor they finally diagnosed him and put him on chemo. He chose the shot which takes a lot longer and slower but less radical approach. It was six months of shots and pills and today was his last shot. He has lead a pretty healthy lifestyle for the past 10 years or so which I think contributed to his positive results. They have been monitoring his blood and for the last three months and no sign of the dreaded disease has been present. Of course he will have to be checked for reoccurrence but the Dr. has been thrilled with his progress and gave him a 95% full recovery diagnoses. There is not a day that goes by that the both of us realize how lucky we are. He took it like a man and I could not be prouder of him. Humor was a big part of it, which is why I say he took it like a man as he did laugh at most of my lame jokes about some of the side effects.

He had to work for the notorious Bobby Brown (Whitney’s Ex) on Friday and said that if I can get through chemo then Bobby Brown should be a piece of cake! LOL!

Thanks in advance for reading.

lmao!! Shoot, Patty - if the hubby can handle work with Bobby Brown he must be in the super-human all-powerful category!!!

Patty - been away and am now catching up on some things ... so happy to hear that things are going well for your husband and for you. Thoughts and prayers with you both for continued healing (and super-human strength as needed. )

Thanks again everybody we are pretty darn happy.....

Bobby has a new Manager named Debra old school female manager who managed John Lee Hooker and the like. She kept all those folks on a pretty short leash......Fulton County did show up with some outstanding warrants for him but it was his lucky day as he was not there when they came knocking. The show openers where actually more of a pain. He got a call from one of the managers of the opening band I forget their name (a girl trio) who was at the airport whining about not being picked up by a SUV. They sent a 15 passenger van. The hubby told him "first of all you may have asked for an SUV on your rider but you are the opener SUV's are for the main act". "You now have two options; number one being you get in the van, number two being you can call a cab at your own expense, so you decide". He got the "okay man...okay man I will get in the van". The hubby then told him "thanks for co-operating; I knew you would come around!" When he called me he had me rolling on the floor laughing so hard.......but as usual the ladies loved him including Debra, they always do!
