Well more fun today, antico appointment, normal INR, cancer screening not so good, already know about prostate cancer, but now they suspect pancreatic because of whatever number, further testing monday. Daibetes a little high blood sugar on fasting, now on 190units daily. Knees need replacing,getting loose and worn, I asked will I be able to do the 100yard dash after replacement, Doc said NO, so I asked whats the point, they are working, we are good.

The warrenty is expired, but the motor is strong and I will keep on, keeping on. Will feel kinda silly laying in a hospital bed dieing of nothing but old age. Gonna go out with boots on doing something stupid, MX didn't kill me, will have to find something more 'dangerous' and fun.

BTW Momma went; "You better not die on me before Dec 2017". Why, you ask, If I go after then with a service connected illness or injury, Momma gets a $1900 a month stipend for the rest of her life...I see me making it till at least Jan 3rd 2018.

Part of getting old I guess, not a life threatening issue yet, nor will be for awhile unless something goes haywire. Simple prostate cancer, benighn at the moment, and if pancreatic is onset so treatable since caugh early on. Been on net looking up all the signs, diabetes and increased insulin need are one, went from 15units to 190units insulin in a little over a year and a half.

I ain't worried or paniced, will tackle this like everything else, me and Beau will soldier on for as long as we can agrivate those around us

Every time I see someone face a situation such as yours with that kind of stubborn optimism it gives me hope that life isn't as bad / scary as we make it out to be.
 
That said, take care of yourself and keep up with your doctor's visits. Thoughts and prayers and whatnot.
