      First I have to apologize for the lack of updates I have not been providing for any of your following this.  So much is going on in our world that unfortunately the blog is one of the first things that gets lost.
      So within the last month Kate got a Bone Marrow Biopsy at the beginning of May and just last Wednesday she got the very painful Lumbar Puncture.  She has had the Lumbar Punctures before but it didn't whoop her ass like it did this time.  She was throw up sick and fevers for about three days but she is doing better now.
      We have been pretty firm on the not doing the COVID vaccine since Kate's platelets are so low but her doctor (Dr. Yang) insists that she either get the vaccine or die if she gets COVID.  Well that sales pitch got Kate and I to go get the Pfizer Vaccine from Kroger.  We had to drive to Clarkston (about 40min) to get the Pfizer vaccine since the reviews we read its the safer of the choices and Pfizer is the only one offered to kids which made me feel better about going with the Pfizer Vaccine.  Yesterday (Sunday) we got our second shot and Kate was very warm but no fever.  I got diarrhea around 5am this morning which was around 4 trips between 5-6 but other than that no idea even got the shot.
      I purchased a couple of different things to help raise Kate's platelets up naturally in hopes it would help prepare her for this Bone Marrow Transplant currently scheduled for the beginning of August.

      Hey everyone. I apologize it has been so very long since I have made an update. For the most part this year was filled with not a lot of change. That can be both good and bad. Good that I have remained in remission, but bad that I have not progressed to where I should be. 
      After months of deliberation and trying every alternative route we could, we are left with no choice but a bone marrow transplant. The cancer cells did too much unrepairable damage to my bone marrow that it just cannot recover and produce enough healthy cells. I have been very blessed that an anonymous donor appears to be a match and is willing to donate to save my life. I have been a registered bone marrow donor for years so it is strange to think that all this time I had been waiting to be someone else’s superhero and now I have my own. 
      All of this has been very challenging to say the least. Anyone who knows me knows that I am beyond blessed with an amazing support circle of family and friends that have made this journey much easier. If there is anyone reading this that knows of someone with cancer or any life threatening disease, be that support system for them. It challenges me to never let the worries or what if’s take over when I have all these people rooting for me. 
      I had a lumbar puncture again last week. Dennis finally got to come to the hospital with me again and was suprised to see how they all know me. I’m not sure if that’s cool or not but they are all great so I’ll take it. Tomorrow I go for another bone marrow biopsy and to get a schedule for the transplant. I’m now on a few weeks left of home time before I go in. The admit date right now is scheduled for august 13 as long as everything goes to plan. For these last 2 1/2 weeks I will be soaking up all the family time I can before I am gone for 4-6 weeks. 
      To save this post from being a novel, I just want to say thank you. Thank you to everyone who has stood in my corner and cheered me on. The prayers, well wishes, check in texts and phone calls mean the world. I would be lying if I said I wasn’t scared but I’m only afraid of being away from my family for the next 1-2 months. I know without a doubt that I have not made it this far for this to be the end of my story. It’s only the next chapter. 
      ❤️ All my love and gratitude ❤️

      This has been a straight up nightmare.  My CentOS 7 server has been updating just fine via yum through our proxy and all of a sudden it stopped working.  This blog is some troubleshooting I've done to try and figure out the issue.
      FIRST, validate your repos are correct.  This is what I have on my server
