Hang in there buddy. You got this. Make sure you take your cell phone charger with you if you are going to do drip chemo or other infusions!

Thanks, DM. Yeah... the chemo takes forever. Whatever... is what it is. I took a book in 07. So that's what I'll do this time.

Wow... i won't say who, as a courtesy to them, vis-a-vis privacy considerations, but an AZ'er just called me to wish me well and we spoke for a few minutes. I can't begin to say how much that kind of thing means to me. I don't have many friends in real life ( and by that, I mean physical friends, not virtual ones ) by choice, but the few I have mean a lot to me. You wouldn't really think people you come to know ( to the degree you can know anybody ) in an online forum could ever be considered "real life" friends... but I am starting to learn that's not true. There are a ton of good people here and I'm starting to find some of you really *are* my friends. And that means a lot. A whole lot.

So that's it, AZer-who-shall-remain-nameless... ( you know who you are ) I really appreciated that call.

Just keep in mind that you have an entire online "family" pulling for you. And family it is...complete with squabbles and weird relatives...but we pull together during times like this.

My wife went through chemo and radiation in 2018. It is tough but there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Her energy is back to normal now and she is in her late 60's.

You can do this.

Thanks Al... I'm glad she's back on track. I went through this in 07 and it took me @ 6 months altogether to get back to "normal". Please give her my best regards.

I have also received many private messages with those same encouragements and best wishes. Due to so many of those, and so many here in the forum itself, I am going to let everyone know, here, that I am starting chemo and radiation treatments ( at one of the most highly rated cancer hospitals in the country, which I am lucky enough to have within driving distance ) on Monday. 6 weeks of radiation 5 days a week and chemo, weekly, for 6 weeks as well.

It's going to be a bumpy flight. But I'll do what needs done, then I'll move on with my life.

Many of you expressly asked me for updates and for that reason, mainly, I am posting this. I deeply appreciate everyone's attitudes, feelings and thoughts. Thank you all.


So... here we go. Off to see the wizard.
Thoughts and prayers for you, Sir.
