Hi Mike - I just heard about your condition today.  I've had several close friends/relatives successfully beat what you're fighting now, so keep your spirits up!  I'm glad you're feeling well enough to record... I'm looking forward to hearing your Open Mic entry! :)

You are in my prayers, that you beat this and feel great again as soon as possible. 

M.G.

Hey everybody, just updating you.

I completed 9 weeks of daily chemo and radiation treatment on Thursday the 9th.  The doctor says my tests look good so far and I now have a 3 week break before going back for more and that lasts 6 months.  My stamina is not real good but I am able to do things for about 2-3 hours a day and then tire.  I lost 31 pounds.  I even mowed a lawn yesterday..but paid for it last night.  My appetite is picking up and I have stabilized.  I still have all of my hair and hope I can keep what I have.  I am now on disability SSD for my only income.  Brenda works and has the insurance and we are getting by.  I no longer have my business or income.  I still have two of my old clients that are gems and have helped me, so a tad bit of income there, but not much.

Thank you to everyone for praying for me.  I know God has his hand on me as I can feel him and his healing power.

Please bear with me if I type something that sounds rude or harsh, I am still getting back to being just harsh...LOL!

I'll post some more in another topic about an idea I have.

End of update.

-Mike

:) ........Glad to know you get a break.  I know my dad appreciated them greatly.  Now,  bein' kind of an old pro at this..........LOL........I got some advice. ( Sorry.......it's the pushy Mom in me........LOL )  ;)


Go fishin'.  

That's all.  Doesn't cost much..........All ya need is cheap bait,  a five gallon bucket,  and a cane pole.  :)

Combine that with a comfortable lawn chair and some skeeter repellant.........and you got God's cure-all for what ails ya.  And on the plus side.........if'n ya catch anything........you're savin' grocery money too..........;)

:Angel:Hi Mike,

MY Prayers are that, GOD will Bless you with a complete recovery!
Glad you get some time-off, from  the chemo/radiation treatments.

Mike, your immune system is low right now, so be extra careful, with
exposure to any viruses. A simple cold or flu, could be very harmful.
A healthy diet, best water and juices by the buckets..Hugs and Kisses
from loved ones, are some of the best forms of medicine. If you need
anything, let me know.  May God be with You and your Family today!

Please, God bless Mike ,

Fran

Hey Bro., hope this finds you doing better.  You're still in my thoughts and prayers.  You know, God loves musicians and songwriters.  He knows they require a bit more attention than normal folk does.  Remember the psalmist David?  He wrote numerous songs recorded in the Bible, and the Bible says that David lived til he was old and full of years.  So keep on writing!!! Later Bro. :)

I want to give you blessings and pray that God will keep you safe.
You are doing a special service for our country. I'm sending this little
Angel to protect you. Please be careful. I am very proud of you, and
Pray for your safe return.

Semper Fi,

Lest you all think I am nuts, I wanted to preface this with the statement that I am in full control of my faculties this morning...well almost.

I had a bad night and finally got so sleep around 2AM.  My wife usually doesn't work on Friday's but had to today so I woke up at 4AM.  Seeing as I had been hurting all night I just sort of layed there curious about what woke me up.  It didn't take long to figure it out because streaming full volume in my head was a fabulous rendition of "Onward Christian Soldiers".  A timpani and drum corp started out the marching beat and was followed by a drum and bugle corp.  I was amazed at the vibrant sound and layed there tapping my toes in time.  This was not your usual marching band sound, but almost a complete movie score.....fabulous.  Part way through a bell choir did an amazing section and then the whole thing ended with a swelling crescendo of the drums, and finally fading out with the snares and their marching beat in the distance. 

What a way to be told "good morning"!  Thank you so much to whoever prayed and asked that to be sent my way.  Bless you.

No, I'm not crazy and on meds so stop laughing.  Good morning to all of you too, sorry you didn't get a chance to hear it.

-Mike

:Angel:Hi Mike,

This sounds like a wonderful blessing, from a higher power.

I believe it is God's way of  saying, he heard the prayers of

all your fellow songwriters.
