Yoga Dad Turns Cancer To A Positive

Yoga dad Dennis Ingui has a story to tell that all you dudes need to hear.

Now, I don’t normally turn over the precious white space here at A Dude’s Guide very often, much less three times in less than a week, but this is a special case. See, a friend of mine told me about Dennis and, once she did, I knew I’d have to have him share his story here with all of you. It’s a long story, so I’m going to have a jump that I want you to follow and I think you will.

Within a few weeks, I was scheduled for surgery.

I’m setting this up to run automatically, but I’m assuming I’m out of surgery, home and doing well. Gotta be positive. Of course, if I’m not, then it’s time for the wailing and the gnashing of teeth. I think we’ll skip that part for now.

Anyway, while I’m recovering and under the influence of all those good pain meds, I have a feeling I’m going to be easily amused.

Which means it’s time to watch BooBoo blast Yogi into the next cartoon, dudes.

I said I was going to be easily amused. Of course, since I’m that way now, I have a feeling it’s only going to get worse. Which is why I’m leaving this up for you and for me.
