And no one has more heart than you, Michael.

I admire how you are handling this with such grace and especially hanging on to your good humor even when things are far from being funny.

Lots of positive thoughts and prayers coming your way, Sir.

You got this!

best,

Amen. I agree 100% even though I have been on a pool break for a while. That is why I still come thru almost every day.

They've sent me **FOUR** cases of it. I suppose I'm happy I won't be able to taste it. Yeah, it's "chocolate" but I've heard it's pretty nasty stuff. Won't matter, though, as long as I can get nutrition in me. I'm so weak, physically, from eating nothing these past 3 weeks, I can't even stand up for more than a few minutes. The wife and I went to the room to play a bit last evening to get out of the house and had to pull up after 20 minutes. I just couldn't stand up. Soooooooooo... the sooner I get that stuff in me, the better.

Yeah... it'll be a relief. But again, I feel like I'm giving up a game or two on the wire. That bothers me, but... what the hell, right? Any port in a storm. Especially if you're starving!

Just was talking to an old friend last night at the pool hall...Chinese Jamaican...
...lived in Canada for 20 years...he and his wife opened up the most popular restaurant
and night spot in Kingston, Jamaica a few years ago.
He started to visit a lot in the last year...grew a beard..finally told me he was undergoing
cancer treatment...well, last night he was clean shaven and his wife had flown in.
...told me he was 100% cancer free.
...so I told him “I guess you’re worried that some of your employees are driving new cars.”
...he grinned, said “Yep, that’s when I knew I was getting better.”


pt...looking to hear the same report from Michael

If pool players had to have knowledge of geometry and physics before talking about geometry and physics, all of the aiming threads would disappear.

Thank you Jennie. That means an awful lot, as I'm sure you already know. I'll be out the other side of this in no time. Then I'll be back to boring everyone here to tears the way it SHOULD be done!!!

Today was my 4th chemo. 3 to go. I weighed in at 202. I was 237 on May 6th, so 35 lbs in 3 1/2 weeks. Not good. But getting the feeding tube tomorrow at 1pm, so I'll be putting on weight again very soon. Plus I won't feel like I'm starving all the time, either.

Bumpy flight so far but I'm beginning to see the landing strip lights down through the clouds. Pretty soon the stew will announce it's time to put the seats upright and fasten the seat belts.

Homeward bound...

230am and I'm here instead of sleeping. Just woke up @ 30 mins ago and couldn't fall back so here I am. Have to get up at 615 to leave for the hospital at 7. The fun starts with blood drawn at 9am, then see the nutritionist, then radiation, then surgery prep for the feeding tube which is set for 1pm. Then an hour of additional fluids ( saline water ) I.V. then finally home.

Going to be a loonnngggggggggg day and I'm here, catching up on the 626 run.

I must be nuts...
