Yes, there is a reason I haven't posted lately. It's because I knew I couldn't post the "fun" stuff until I posted the crappy stuff.
Friday night Keith got a call that was a devastating blow to our family. Keith's Dad, Wayne, has been diagnosed with ALS or Lou Gehrig's disease, specifically bulbar onset (which means it affects his speech first).
Life expectancy with this disease is short, there is no cure, but of course we are praying for a slow progression. I don't really know what to say, I knew I needed to let everyone know. And I won't lie, it has been hard. Sadness for us comes in waves. The treatment is expensive, the medication is expensive, the heartache is expensive.
