Hang in there Brian, with each treatment that means one less and soon it will be all over.  I know this hear isn't helping either but soon this will be over as well.   How is your cousin doing?

Things have been a little rough around here the past few days. Not doing very well with each treatment and it seems to get tougher after each one. Having lots of trouble sleeping at night and getting to work in the morning. Also having trouble getting our customers to pay their bills, making the money really tight right now. I may sell off some of my tractors, I don't need all of them and don't see me any time in the future to restore them or work on them.

Sorry to hear things are rough, brother. We are still praying for you and your family. Hope things improve soon, but remember, HE only tests us with that which we can endure!

  Rough times that drag on tend to ware us down. You've done a great job of keeping your spirits up and your family is to be commended for the support they so generously provided you. Try to accept the things you can't change and focus on the gifts you've been blessed with, your family, friends, and the medical professionals who are helping you through this trial.  

  The people who are not settling up with their bills are not your friends. Do not hesitate to lean on those people or hire a collection agency. They are doing you absolutely no favors by stringing you along at this point in your life. You don't need the stress now.

  Selling our material things that we enjoy is never an enjoyable experience. Do what you have to do to keep things going smoothly and you'll feel better for it. I can't imagine anyone here not supporting your decisions. 

Good luck and May God continue to Bless you.

Sorry to hear things are not going well, Brian! I have to agree with Chris, you don't need the extra stress right now!

Sounds like you are going through the same rough spot our DIL is going through.  All you can do is put one foot in front of the other and deal with it day by day.  Soon it will be all over and just a memory although at present I imagine it doesn't feel that way.  We will keep you in our thoughts.

I think if I was having trouble with collections, I would buy a couple of kegs for the local bikers.

Still feeling really tired and sleeping a lot still. Briley, my Daughter hit a board yesterday and cut one of her tires down, put a 4" cut in the sidewall of the tire. Thankfully she was driving slow and was almost home and it was on the rear of her Denali. New tires for her car are over $200.00 apiece so this morning I took off the rim/tire and went to my local used tire shop hoping to find a used matching tire since she has about 60% tread left on the other tires. I couldn't believe that they actually had several of the same size/brand tire in stock used that are take offs of Dodge pickups when they upgrade to bigger, better wheels.  $55.00 later I have a good tire back on Briley's car and can feel good about the tire since it's better tread depth the the other 3 tires. I may go get some more of them just to have for her car later down the road.

I had to patch a tube on a hay wagon today myself. Glad you found a good tire at a good price.

About a year ago I went through the same scenario with the wife. Got a used tire and all was well until this year when she needed all 4.   Hope your energy returns and things get back on an even keel for ya.

I may be cheap, but I haven't bought new tires for years and years.
Big auto salvage yard up here and they have been able to help almost every time.

Treatment #9 is under my belt, except for the 2 days I've got to wear the pump for the rest of the treatment. We'll see how well I do with this one, I hope and PRAY that it goes better then the last one.
