News not brews

Much has happened since I last posted. Sadly mostly Facebook wanderings. I have not seen my friend soberwomanofgod at a meeting in a long while so I though I would peek in on her blog. Wow I got a mention in her blog! And a favorable one at that! Thanks J.
My wife and I had an extreamly bad scare with my youngest daughter. A tumor was detected in her little body and the word cancer was tossed around all over the place. The Docs could find no other explanation for this rapidly growing growth. A long and dangerous surgery took place. A biopsy followed and we were blessed. A 1 in a trillion result happened....BENIGN! She is now a ballet class taking, mighty might soccer playing, fighting with her sister, won't eat her vegetables, little 5 yr old with a couple big scars on her tummy.
I also burried an old roomate and fraternity brother. Sadly I'm afraid he wasn't sober when he died. He was a 39 yr old single father. His 10yr old son has already lost his mother in a single car DUI about 7yrs ago. Sobriety was quite a bit the topic as Rich (you know him as rcali4233) and I saw lots of our frat brothers at the funeral. Grateful to say we both remained sober as others didn't.
Lastly I was able to accomplish another recovery milestone. I just passed 1yr of not smoking yesterday! Hopefully this long of a stretch won't pass again until I next blog but I know how I am.
All my best
