THE MURSE, THE MOOBS AND MAN
I think we all have some blogs that we tend to favor a little more then others and we all have some blogger friends that we sort of become attached to for what ever the reason.
I have one such friend that I have been following for a while. He is one of the nicest and bravest people I have met.
Divorced father of two girls and recently remarried to a wonderful young woman.
Now this may not seem like such a special thing to you, many people divorce and re-marry but that is where the bravery part comes into play. You see he is very ill and if it were not for his tremendous willpower and great zest for life he probably wouldn't be here now.
He has been waiting to get a liver transplant for years but during that time he developed cancer. The cancer has been arrested but now he must stay cancer free for several more years before they will allow him to have a liver transplant. So he is biding his time. If he can hang on for three more years he will be eligible for the transplant. I guess the theory is that they can then consider him cured of the cancer.
But in the meantime his already badly deteriorating liver keeps on deteriorating making each day more painful. Yet somehow he just keeps on keeping on. Every once in awhile he just has to give into the pain and rest for awhile then he's up and gone again.
He makes sure he spends quality time with his daughters and goes places with his lovely new wife, who I should mention has stood by him through all of this for a very long time now. She's pretty great herself.
He carries a big bag, like a back pack with him everywhere he goes, for two reasons he needs to keep massive amount of medicine at all times and of course his play things like iPod and other goodies.
So since he spends so much time carrying a bag around he decided to upgrade to a nicer looking bag and he found one.
Then one of his friend came over and told him it was a murse and his wife told him don't use the shoulder strap or it will show off your moobs.
The post gave me a good laugh and I learned two new words, 'murse and moobs'.
If you don't know what they mean visit my friend 'Ruben' and find out and have a good laugh.
The name of his site is 'Each Day Counts'.
