Wife's grandfather went to the VA, who promptly sent him to the ER, and he's now been in the hospital for a week getting blood transfusions.  Had a bone marrow biopsy yesterday and they're waiting for the results, but it's more than likely leukemia.

Apparently there are different levels of severity of leukemia, and he's 87, so exactly how to treat him is still TBD based on the results of the biopsy.  We're still in Nebraska (the move is in 3 weeks), so my wife flew back to PA to visit with him and to help her grandmother and mother with some of the difficult decisions that lay ahead.

Quite the monkey-wrench overall...golf trip with the buddies and my promotion ceremony next week both now cancelled, and moving prep has to begin in earnest since I'll be here solo for a good stretch.  All VERY small inconveniences when measured against the larger context of things overall, just venting the stress of it all I guess.

 

Prayers for your family in this difficult time.

Very sad to hear that.  Life throws us all kinds of curves, and how we handle it defines our character.  It sound like you are doing what you can and putting the important things first.  Best of luck to you and you are in our prayers.

Went to my Doc yesterday for final sign off on knee replacement surgery June 2nd and no go.  They found a problem with the EKG and he’s sending me to a Cardiologist.  Huge disappointment.
Nothing is easy.

Sad to hear.  A few years ago I had foot surgery.  A week before before surgery, I had to go to the hospital for an EKG; checked out OK.  Early in the morning of the surgery when I was getting prepped at a surgery center, the anesthesiologist came in and talked... checked my heart.  He had the staff hook up an EKG machine (after they dusted it off and untangled the wires); couldn't get a good reading, so he said the surgery was off and that I needed to go to the hospital immediately!  I felt fine.  Since I hadn't eaten since mid-day the day before, I stopped for breakfast.  When I got to the hospital, they ran an EKG and a heart doc said that anesthesiologist shouldn't be reading heartbeats.  Personally, I think he wanted the morning off; maybe he had a tee time.  It took a month to reschedule the surgery, and I didn't have him that time.

Doc showed me EKG and see what he’s talking about.  Hope it’s just a CYA on his part.  
Rescheduling is the difficult part.

Life happens..... And it's quite ok to vent in here! Hope it helped in some small way....

Best wishes for your grandfather 🤞

Hang in there and prioritize what you *gotta* do next and you, and your wife, will get through this.

What about Canadian Bacon?  It’s a close one for me, something about our friends from the north version of it… it just good, especially if you get a little bit of the syrup from the pancakes to overflow onto it… or on a sandwich… Man, I’m hungry.

They do not discriminate, bacon is bacon, syrup is the stuff they dream about😁  No sugar free syrup for these guys,  obviously no wives are around and everyone sworn to secrecy.
