    My wife is having surgery tomorrow.  It seems routine but is anything routine at 75?

    Best of luck to both of you. Even when it goes well, recovery takes longer than predicted.

    Best of luck to Ft Morgan graduate Trey McBride this weekend in Las Vegas! 

    College star Trey McBride poised to become one of the first NFL draft picks with same-sex parents

    Trey McBride may not be a household name among NFL fans, but he may soon be.

    The tight end from Colorado State University is expected to be selected in the NFL Draft, which kicks off Thursday in Las Vegas. He’ll also become the first NFL player with same-sex parents. McBride is one of five kids Kate McBride has with her longtime partner, Jen. They are beaming with pride for their son.

    “I’m excited to see him just live his dream,” Kate told TODAY. “When your kid comes to you when they’re little and they say they want to be president, you’re like, ‘OK, honey, that’s great.’ He wanted to play in the NFL, and he’s going to do it.”

    Kate and Jen started their family in the 1990s and say the climate of acceptance was different

    “They actually considered me a single mom,” Kate said. “And I do remember telling my parents that I’m pregnant, and they said, ‘Why would you want to have a baby as a single woman?’ And I said, ‘I’m not a single woman. I’m in a relationship.’”
