Just a quick note to reach out to my virtual friends. Keep my family in your good thoughts and prayers (if you pray) this holiday season.
Donut mans brother who I've talked about some on here. The one who got me started hiking. He has been very ill with a very awful disease called Amyloidosis. It affects the protein in your blood and then affect all your vital organs. It's a long slow process but there is no cure for it.
He has been fighting this for 6 years. It has now gotten to his heart and his heart is only functioning at 20%. He is still fighting hard he is not ready to go. The family is and has come to terms with his reality.
It is especially hard as this is the holiday seasons.
I will not be on much over the next month I'm sure. I am trying to keep things balanced and keep some work out going. And not over or under eat as I tend to do during this kind of a event.
I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season.
