Taking A Break!

I've got a lot going on right now and trying to focus on two blogs while at the same time focusing on work, family and all the other situations I have going is too hard!

The first thing to go is those things that aren't necessary. In this case, this second blog is not necessary. I'm not deleting it completely as I don't know what the future holds and if I might want to return to it at some point.

For now, I consider myself to be just taking a break from posting here until further notice!

Thanks for the few who have supported me in this effort.

A Very Important Day For Isaiah (And All Of Us)

I'm here in Durham right now, relaxing at the hotel before Isaiah's surgery tomorrow.
When I came here, I didn't realize how serious this surgery was but now that I have had a chance to talk to Stephanie I realize it is more serious than I imagined.
They have pretty much gotten all they can with the chemo. There is still a small amount that is clinging to his brain stem and they have to go in and try to remove it. The seriousness is in the fact that if they can't get it then that is it. Isaiah is too sick to be able to endure radiation therapy and if they can't get it through the surgery then they will just have to send him home because they have done all they can do.
Even if they do get it, they don't know what effects it will have on him. What it might affect. They also don't know if it will come back or not.
It's quite scary when you stop and think about it. This could most likely be the last surgery for Isaiah. I just pray that it will end with the results we want.
If you have a moment tonight or even tomorrow, please say a prayer for my grandson. The surgery will start around 7AM Eastern Time.
I will try to update you as often as possible. I have a laptop and internet connection at the hotel room and it is right across the street from the hospital. Of course, Jessica will probably update Facebook quicker with her phone.
Either way we will try to keep you updated on this very important day!

Thanks for your prayers,
Ken

No Empty Nests Here!

My wife made a huge mistake today! She wanted to buy some new games to play and one of those games was Payday. We decided to try it out tonight and now I know I am screwed!

My youngest daughter now swears that she will never move! She has no desire to pay bills! Every time she turned around she was getting mail and it was always another bill.

The bright side is that it won't be that bad having her around forever. She keeps things on the lighter side, most of the time.

Be careful what games you are buying for your family to play. They have some hidden dangers associated with them! :-)

Hope y'all are having a great day!
