Busy Week and a trip to Biloxi

Last Friday our daughter and 3 grandsons arrived for a visit. They stayed with us the first  night and checked into a nearby hotel on Saturday. We  kept one of  the boys with us each night.  Of course we were off to the beach each day. They had so much fun…

It was great spending time with them.

We got a call last Friday that Kevin was scheduled at the Biloxi, Ms VA Hospital for an appointment with a specialist to have the growth on his ear checked. Ok, but Biloxi is  3.5 hrs away and it’s an 8:30am appointment!  The decision was made to head out Wednesday and stay the night in a hotel.  As is turned out, our daughter was going to head back to Houston and figured why not travel together and they would spend the night also. We booked two rooms at  The Grand Hotel and Casino. They have a nice big pool, so after checking in, Kim and I took the kids for pool time, while Kevin ventured into the casino to gamble.  Kim and I had our turn in the casino, she won, I didn’t, then all headed to the buffet for a nice dinner. 

This morning, we were  up early. We bid the kids goodbye and we headed for the VA.  The dr immediately said, oh that’s a cancer.. Of course he had to take a biopsy to be sure and we will have to return in two weeks for that news.  The options were discussed and we may have to be in this area for a while.  Right now our plans are to leave June 30th and head to Tn but now it’s all in jello….time will tell!!

Back to work tomorrow…

It must be awful having to wait 2 more weeks. Glad you got it checked though, and I'll be praying that surgery and/or treatment will take care of it.

Great pictures of the kids. I know you enjoyed having them.

Keep us posted on Kevin.
