Bigbird123 is still Alive...

Hey Friends it’s been quite a while since I’ve posted here but I can say that there are several of you that I have sorely missed. My riding is somewhat restricted now days with the battle with diabetes and only 4-1/2 toes left to balance the bike but I do get out some.

However the things that take up most of my time is taking care of my wife who has been in a two year battle with Stage Four Colon and Liver Cancer. She has chosen to forego any more treatments as they weren’t making any headway. She tried some trials but after the last one she developed aggressive tumors in her lungs and a mass in her brain. We have totally given God the reigns and trust His Guidance. We have been told that she has probably less than a year. She had been put in hospice to try and control her pain. This is an ugly disease folks and there are no classes, no DVD, and no program that can help with coping/understanding why this $h!t happens.

We just ask for Your Friendship and Prayers..,

You both have my thoughts and prayers, brother.

I can head East or West, it doesn't matter as long as it's on 2 wheels.

Welcome back. You know you're always welcome here.

Sorry to hear about your missing 5.5 little piggies. The thought of what your wife has gone through is overwhelming. It must be tough to stand by and watch it happen racking your brain for some sort of solution or relief from the pain. God bless you both!
