    I wish you all the best!

    I am presently dealing with a very stressful situation!

    I have had a bad spot on my forehead that the doctors have repeatedly told me was psoraiasis (for 3 years)! I finally got my doctor to refer me to a specialist last week.
    As soon as I walked into his office (even before he said "HI"), he said "I am cutting that thing out!"
    He removed a 1-1.25" wide, by 2.5" teardrop shaped section!
    Now not only do I have a permanant scar, but my left half of my face above my eye is now out of proportion! AND he said its Cancerous for sure! We just have to wait to find out what kind/severity it is!
    HMMMM!!!
    I have had it for this long and now its bad?! I hope this didnt allow it to spread beyond this spot!!!

    I should find out within this week.

    Talk about an uncertain emotion! The test could come back saying its a minor cancerous leasion(removing it would have solved that), or the opposite.

    Now I am gettimg a rash that seems to be spreading around my left eye, and the back of my hands. Talk about stressful!
    Sorry guys, I dont mean to whine!

    Church, prayer and not taking your partner for granted are HUGE steps to working through things. My wife told me it was till death, I bought her a 12 guage, don't want to suffer.

    Glad things are working out for you both..I got married in 1968, got divorced in 1986, remarried in 1999. Best 13 years of my life carried through by goods friends and a lot of golf..however, these are working out nicely also, so that may end up being the second best...

    Hi guys!
    Just thought I would drop you a message about my cancer.
    It has been removed and I expect a full recovery.
    The scar is healing very well so far.
    Boy am I glad to leave that situation behind!

    Today is Mother's Day in my corner of the world and this thread makes me thankful for my wife and mother of our kids. She is supporting of my "casting therapy," part-wise because she like to shoot these boolits, too. Likewise I try to help her in her personal endeavors. Our Faith and this collaboration has helped us weather some lean times, and our oldest is off to college this fall. My prayer is that you both can see a good way through these trying times and come out stronger on the other side. DRNurse1

    PDshooter, Dthunter,

    Great news from the both of you.

    My second wife and I have been together for nearly 30yrs and married for coming up on 25 in July. I honestly would not be here today if not for her, and I cherish her every day. I might not always head down the proper trial, but it usually isn't long before she directs me back to where I need to be. We talk about everything and we share the love of the outdoors in many ways. She don't hunt, but will jump right in with skinning, quartering, wrapping and cooking up whatever I haul to the house as needed. She usually outfishes me 9 out of 10 times when we go, and has camped out in weather and conditions that would make most men cry.

    As mentioned it is Mother's day and I have already expressed my commitment to her and our lasting marriage. Together we have no children, but she helped raise my daughter from my previous marriage. She asks very little of me, and I of her but we work together to get any obstacles overcome.


    Glad to hear things have made an upturn for the both of you. Here's to continued growth and longevity to you all.
    Later,
    Mike / TX

    Wow. Interesting thread to stumble across on Mothers' Day. Makes me thankful of my wife of 16 years and mother of our 6 and 4 year old children.

    We recently had our own drama of me deciding the answer to escape a job of 5 years that was making me miserable was to take one two states over and relocate us all.

    Wound up deciding that wasn't the answer after 3 months and moved us all back. Turned out we were too attached to the place we'd lived the past 9 years.

    She was supportive through the whole ordeal and I thank her often.

    God's blessings to the OP for things working out.

    PDshooter and Dthunter,
    My prayers were with you last week when I stumbled across this thread. I wasn't able to post right away when I read it, but will share in rejoicing for the improvement in both of your situations. Lost my best friend to cancer 2 years ago, but always keep his friendship in my heart. And always pray for those who are told they have any form of Cancer. Godspeed recover Dthunter. PDshooter - Letting your wife know that she is your partner, and never taken for granted goes a long way in developing and showing mutual love and respect, and I can't remember any long-term relationships I've seen people in that survived without those two major factors. I am so glad to see your situation improving. I have been married to my wife for 29 years next month, and had to wait for her 13 years to marry her. We have had our trials and the mutual love and respect helped immensly, but those would not have come without plenty of prayer and the grace of God. It does matter, at least to me it seems to be the source of all the rest. God Bless, and keep the faith.
