03 You’ll Never Walk AloneThe sun doesn’t always shine, nor do the birds constantly sing; however, true friends stand by one’s side regardless of the outward circumstances. When the storms of life are raging, the valley is dark, and there seems to be no end in sight, true friends will walk with you. As the knees buckle because the heart is broken, true friends will lift you up and if need be carry you on.

Our radio show hasn’t aired for two nights due to the fact that we received some bad news Monday afternoon pertaining to the recent PET scan that my wife had. After her chemo and radiation treatments were over we had anticipated a clear scan but unfortunately the scan detected a spot that had grown somewhat larger that was seen before. Now we go back for some more tests and another biopsy which will show us where we stand.

Nancy (Mom Mom as she is known on the show and in our blog) is not bedridden. She feels fine and has been recuperating from her treatments which were somewhat harsh on her. It’s the mental blow that’s the hardest to take. Cancer patients will be quick to tell you that this disease takes both the patient and the loved ones on an emotional roller coaster ride that words cannot describe.

We were set back on our heels by the report but after two days of digesting the news we have once again straightened our shoulders and have vowed to continue on. Nancy and I want all of our dear friends to know that your love, concern, and prayers are what give us the courage to continue on. Some of you we have never met personally yet there is a kindred spirit that binds us together.

Each and every one of you has faced or is facing your own difficulties but yet you have rallied along side of us, encompassed us with your love, and held us up with your prayers. For this my friends we are eternally grateful. Let it be known that should you ever need a helping hand please allow us to become part of you as you have become part of us.

Tonight The George Espenlaub Show returns at its usual time, 6:30 p.m. EDT live from the Funny Farm. I’ll post any other information on the site as it comes in. In the meantime tell a friend to tune in this evening and come on into the chat room. Hey, I know it’s not Friday but so what; meds, coffee, and casual. It doesn’t get any better than this.
