Always 70 and Sunny

Thank you all !


Well guys this has been the scariest week of my life because I felt so helpless – but I am happy to report that my M is now home from the hospital recovering . The good news is that the big life threatening things have all been ruled out after multiple tests and procedures. The plan now is to find a specialist that can pin point the problem and develop a plan to solve/ contain it. I can assure you this – and y’all know me – when I lock in on something I see it through – we will figure out what is wrong we will see this through no matter what it takes.

I just want to thank all of you that have called , texted, prayed on our behalf – we feel the power of your thoughts and prayers and they are much appreciated. To those of you that have brought flowers, came by the hospital, brought food or have made plans to bring food – please know how grateful we are. It is such a blessing to have good friends and people who care about you. I’m pretty worn out so I hope this is all making sense – I just wanted to reach out to my brothers and let you all know that I love you and we are so thankful for you all.

Please go hug your wife and kids – please don’t sweat the small stuff – please don’t think you are alone if you are battling something – please know that this is a special group and we take care of each other.

I certainly miss seeing all of you each morning – and know this I will be back – but my focus right now is getting my family back to normal .

See y’all in the gloom !
