Wonderful news

 

An update on my condition.

 

Woo Hoo!  Had another round of chemo this week and we went over my latest CT scan from Monday. Halfway through my chemo treatments and the CT scan showed everything shrinking.

Weird couple of days around here

The last two days, 24 hours really, have been really weird for our law enforcement community.

Yesterday in Federal Court in Fargo a man, Jeffrey Ferris, was found guilty and he then killed himself. I heard it was by cutting his own throat. I’m not sure what he used, the news report just says “easily concealable instrument” which is pretty vague. I can’t imagine he’d be able to get a metal knife through, but they do make ceramic ones which might get by a metal detector. He could have also used an improvised implement, like a sharpened piece of plastic (think tooth brush) as well.

Today one of the officers at my old department passed away while on duty. He started just after I left. It doesn’t appear to be anything traumatic, just an unexpected medical complication of some sort. Still, it’s surprising and hits hard. He was younger than I am.

They say these things come in threes. I wonder what the next will be?
