A Personal Message - Another Journey - Our Dual Cancer Battles

Hi friends and readers of Macsmind.   Last month my wife of 26 years was diagnosed with cancer during an emergency hospital stay.   Incredibly this month during a routine physical I too was discovered to have prostate cancer.

During the next five to six weeks my wife will undergo both chemo and radiation that will be followed by surgery.  Also during that time I will be undergoing radiation for 8 weeks followed by a 'seed implant".  I have an excellent prognosis of cure 85%.

This is just a note to let you know that at times I will be sporactic in posting, as well as appearing on the MacRanger Show, as well as my local schedule.   Additionally if you are a long time reader and would like to guest post on Macsmind let me know, I surely would appreciate the help and I'm sure the readers would too.

However through the strength of God and his grace we will get through - it's the only way to get through - and will share our experiences with others to help them over come.

Thanks in advance for your prayers and support.

You and your wife and family are in our prayers. We almost all have friends or family who have had this dreaded disease.

Mac, I promise you, my prayers will go out for you and the Mrs. And I know there are no words that can remove the fear that comes with a diagnosis of cancer.

But stay strong and keep a positive attitude.

22 years ago my son told me he was HIV/AIDs positive. I told him the same thing then I am telling you now. Today he complains about being overweight.

Think positive, keep us informed and let us know what you need to make this journey you are about to embark on easier.

Dear Mac and Mrs. Ranger,

I have you in my heart and prayers. I may not be doing something right to be able to post a comment. Don't know, but if you get this: I'm thinking of you guys.

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?

**UPDATED AND BUMPED****

As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

UPDATE II: Looks like I owe my source big time as yet another tip comes true as the Washington Post is on the target list as well for the CIA Prison leak.

Newsbusters Busts the MSM on Bush Event

Newsbusters, the blog of Brent Bozell's Media Research Center, exposes the MSM attempt to spin President Bush's meeting with troops into a 'staged event'.

Truth is that the event was not staged, the troops were telling their real feelings: that they support the war and our President.

I guess they might have this story mixed up with the "planted question" to Sec. Rumsfeld back in December 2004.

Yet, that wasn't the case here, Soldiers when asked, will tell you the truth.

Just like in this picture, they tell it like it is!











Michelle Malkin has links to other reactions. Also Blogs for Bush.

UPDATE I: Michelle has a further reponse from one of the soldiers in the video. Here's an excerpt:

"First of all, we were told that we would be speaking with the President of the United States, our Commander-in-Chief, President Bush, so I believe that it would have been totally irresponsible for us NOT to prepare some ideas, facts or comments that we wanted to share …
