My writing is on hold this week, and I will return to the Spence articles after my son’s cancer surgery is successfully completed. This old throwback picture of him was taken in 1971, so he was almost three years old at the time. He goes in for his surgery Wednesday. I will get back into the writing mode after the surgery is successfully completed and after he is on the mend.
He’s really been upbeat and has built himself up well for the procedure. Now that his esophagus has healed from all the radiation and chemo, he’s able to eat a lot more things that he couldn’t eat before. It could be a seven-hour operation and he could be in the hospital for 10 to 14 days. Another thing that has given him an emotional high is the fact that his beloved Kansas City Royals are in the World Series.
Brian and the Royals “shall prevail!”
