Tumor #5 - right shoulder blade.

Probably neck and head surgery towards the end of Febuary. Maybe chemo first, but surely afterwards.

Maybe a little radiation too.

Corneal ulcer seems to be responding to antibiotics.

Meer, your presence here is especially valued.

Please continue to use your mind to persevere.

Your body is faltering, but not your mind. Some might call that lucky, rather than the other way around.

Phil HThank you, you're very kind.

However, I think this will be controversial. ;)

David, The chemo may be more effective than the rad. The chemo interferes with cell division within the tumors(hopefully). But try to keep in mind that you are living with cancer not dying because of cancer. It is still gonna be a hellofa fight but hang in there.

Besides words of encouragement, do you NEED anything? Anything at all? No, I can't get you fixed up with a broad! :D

This may be off topic, but do they have medicinal marijuana laws in your state? Surely you need to get hooked up with that. With all the other junk they are feeding you it may really help.

Don't slip too far away, Mr. M. You'd be sorely missed.

Kat, I'm watching a show on public tv about big trebuchets,,I'd like that for cancer therapy,,bring the big arm down and fling things. Sounds theraputic.

Peace and strength, 'kat.I close my eyes, only for a moment and the moment's gone.
All my dreams pass before my eyes in curiosity.
Dust in the wind.
All they are is dust in the wind.
Same old song.
Just a drop of water in an endless sea.
All we do crumbles to the ground, though we refuse to see.
Dust in the wind.
All we are is dust in the wind.

Don't hang on, nothing lasts forever but the earth and sky.
It slips away and all your money won't another minute buy.
Dust in the wind.
All we are is dust in the wind.
Dust in the wind.
Everything is dust in the wind
