    let's see... a cousin has been diagnosed with lung cancer (don't know how bad as they keeping bringing in more and more oncologists)... an uncle of mine was found dead in his home earlier this week... another uncle has at least partial blockages in every artery in his heart and they can't do anything because his lungs are so bad, plus his esophagus ruptured right after they called a halt to the attempts at putting in stints (he is still in ICU). Add to that the overall holiday hustle and this being another year without Dad and it is just... hard.

    I don't really know what to ask you all to pray for. Of course for my family and their needs, but for me as well. All of this is dragging me down emotionally as well as spiritually in that I am struggling with things that have not bothered tempted me for a long, long time.

    Thanks to you all.

    You, and your family.

    Buddy, you got my prayers. I lost two dear cousins I grew up with & were like brothers...to me they are my brothers last November & December. The demons are always there to tempt us but please be strong in the Lord. it's bittersweet but I know my people are in a better as Im sure are yours who have passed. This time of year is very hard......keep your head up, He will never leave you or forsake you.

    Blessings

    A bit of an update.

    They are starting radiation treatments Monday )27th) on my cousin. The tumor is inoperable as it is wrapped around one of the main pulmonary arteries. They will use aggressive radiation followed by chemo.

    My uncle is now in rehab so they can watch him. They have him on four blood thinners to try to dissolve some of the blockages and are having to watch for internal bleeding. He is far from being out of the woods.

    My other uncle seems to have died from a massive heart attack.

    The seasonal depression is a bit better. I am trying to keep my mind occupied and upbeat. I am extremely thankful for the prayers on my behalf. Thank you, my friends.
