I struggled with writing this post, because it's a balance of giving out too much personal information vs. support. Support won out.
Two things. My good friend Wally just lost his mom. He could really use your good thoughts and kind words right now, as the place he's in isn't one I'd wish on my worst enemy. I consider Wally a good friend, and it's killing me to see him in this kind of pain. If you could spare some kind words and a few moments talking to The Big Guy, I think it'd mean a lot to Wally.
Secondly, another good friend dixie is undergoing a thyroid biopsy today. She's had a lump on her neck that has grown significantly in the past few months and is having it removed. They won't know if it's cancerous or benign until it's out and tested, so if you're the praying kind, please pray for benign.
I know I've been asking for a lot recently, but these are two good folks going through some really rough times right now. I know they could use all the good thoughts, prayers, and well-wishes possible at the moment.
That is all.
