Mary seems to be doing a little better these days. She was given another epidural in her back, only this one went into the spinal area from the side, and she seems to not have nearly as much pain but there is some weakness. Our neurosurgeon will confer with her tomorrow on her progress and then some decisions will need to be made. It is likely she will need these shots for the rest of her life, but as long as the frequency stays down she can live with one every now and then. The concern is how long this epidural will last, and it is likely if it does not last as long she will need additional surgery. Employment is also a factor, as things are happening at her office, and we all know how that goes when you are away for too long. Between the medications she has and the shots she keeps getting, its been a rough patch, but things look like they might be improving for now.

I couldn't end this without making a note of June 13th - a day which will live in...wedded bliss! Mary and I will celebrate 26 years of marriage next week. I suppose a lot of folks MIGHT ask what took us so long. Some others might be a bit in wonderment as to how Mary could have POSSIBLY put up with my temper and wake up to my mug every morning. Have pity on her! Whatever your view is - we celebrate this year I think being more IN love with each other than anything else. To me - Mary is the love of my life. I hate the term "soul mate" perhaps because it sounds a bit corny, maybe a little too high schoolish. We have stood the test, and made it through. I always have been adamant about making sure that three things come before anything else in my life - God, my wife, and my kids. We have been steadfastly dedicated to each other and to our family. Haven't always made the best decisions, but always made sure each other came first. Sometimes that has been a source of ridicule and admonishment, but ask me if I care. When you take an oath, whether it be to our country or to each other it should be for life. Period.
I love you sweetheart!
