Got a minute?

I know I've been absent from the Blogosphere for quite a while now.  There has just been so much going on around here, I probably could never really catch you up on it all.

Sadly, one of the things going on is that one of my very best friends' husband is battling very aggressive cancer.  Actually, some of you may remember him, as he was the friend who did the remodeling in my basement. 

Anyway, I had no idea there was a GoFundMe page set up for him until about 5 minutes ago.  I really wish I had known so I could have shared it sooner.  If you have a few moments to spare today, please go check it out.  Hopefully, you'll find a few dollars to donate, as well.

There is a benefit being held this afternoon for him and his family.  I'm looking forward to seeing him, and my friend.  At the same time, I'm almost afraid to see him.  It's been a couple months since I've last seen him.  He has since stopped all treatment, and has decided to just make the most of whatever time he has left.  He has had hospice care for a while now, so I just pray they've been keeping him comfortable.

If you are a prayer, feel free to send some their way.

Thank you, PO. Email has been sent!

Suz, thank you so much for your generous donation. I'm really bummed I didn't know about this sooner. I know how very generous my Bloggy Buddies have always been in the past. Diahn and Phil could really use the help. Thanks, again.

Done! Not much due to the pile of bills here. Hoping to get social security disability approved here so I can take care of stuff. My new insurance sucks!
