More health issues for Vicki and Rex.
For anyone who may not know of whom I speak; Vicki is my daughter who is recovering slowly from serious health issues and Rex is her husband of 30 years.
For once this is not more bad news about Vicki’s health, this time its Rex’s turn, he had some “normal, routine” blood tests recently and was called back for a prostate biopsy, just to be sure!!!!!
Yes you guessed it the biopsy was positive, he has prostate cancer, this is a very fit clean living man of 51 who would be the last one to be expected to be a cancer candidate.
We are all having some difficulty getting our minds around this the latest crisis to come into these young lives, I am having serious doubts about the idea that god doesn’t put more on you than you can bear, over the last few years their burden has been very heavy indeed with successive years of drought and family issues to contend with as well as all the health problems.
Both Vicki and Rex are positive thinkers and are coming to terms with this new problem, they have had enough rain to enable them to start the grain seeding for what we hope will be a much better harvest than the past few have been, this means about 3 weeks of very long hours and tension as they ward off the usual run of incidents that go to make the life of a farmer “interesting”.
Hopefully they can come through this without delays and breakdowns as Rex is scheduled for surgery on May 21.
I know that I have put some pressure on you all over the last few months with my plea’s for prayers and positive karma for Vicki, I would now ask that this be extended to Rex as well, they are both worthy of, and in need of all our help, thank you.
