Today was a Downer Day

Well, today is July 3rd and it was a downer day for me. I have been deeply depressed today due to several situations. I am trying to deal with a financial mess that a neighbor got me in to and today I was trying to work on it with no success.

I also am starting to get more anxiety about my surgery as each day goes by. I hate being in the hospital and the thought of surgery puts me into panic mode.

The only good news I got today was a phone call from a Carcinoid Cancer patient’s daughter who runs a big foundation for Carcinoid Cancer and she talked to me for a while and helped me feel better about it.

Her mother has survived her Cancer for the past Twenty years and is still doing fine. There is hope !!

She was able to get February 14th set aside as Carcinoid Cancer Awareness day in her state and that makes me want to push for the same thing here in Utah. I am going to try and set up a meeting with our Governor to see if I can push for awareness.

Well, that is all for today, I am hoping to feel better about life tomorrow.

I'm sorry you had such a rough day. I got a clean bill of health from my x-rays, but the fear I felt before the results came in were enough to give me a real dose of sympathy.

I love you, little brother, you're the best! Coleen

daddy, don't get down. We all love you and are praying for you every day. Just remember what the bishop said in your blessing. Stay strong daddy. I don't remember if I told you or not, but I have July 18th through the 28th off from work. I'll be at the hospital every day with you. I love you so much daddy. Just remember that, and stay strong. We are all fighting for you too.
