    I remember your daughter Bobby. I was going to bring some nice art pencils over for her the next day. You had gotten underway.
    I 'm thinking about you all.

    I hope that you have adequate financial arrangements in place so that you are not in financial difficulties.

    You have gone there and back in a big way with a journey of the unexpected. Thank you for sharing. Heal up and voyage on. You have much to teach us about life, love, risk and reward.
    Be wary of your critics, at peace with your decisions, and work hard to be a better man.

    I have to admire the way you are dealing with all the negative things that have occurred.The children can't help but learn a lot about dealing with adversity in this situation and they are getting a wonderful education in these matters.I hope things take a huge turn for the better soon and your adventure continues.May we continue to share the ride for a long while too.

    Hi Bruce, we talked of you just the other day Greetings. Her art is maturing, your encouragement touched a spot. May we cross tacks again down the road.

    One of the unspoken benefits of social health care is the reciprocal benefits agreements with other countries.
    Due to being fully paid up in my home country, health cover is extended to many others, all French territories, NZ, Australia, and others. The chemo course I am about to embark on costs over 90,000$ just for the drugs. MRI scan, PET scan, oncologists, urologist, biopsy operation, hospital time over 3 months, painkillers, androgen blockers, etc. Well in excess of 120,000$ US. All no charge.

    Best wishes for your treatment Bobby.
    There is nothing quite as permanent as a good temporary repair.

    You could be in plenty of worse places Bobby. The good people at Brisbane hospital ICU put my brother back together a few years ago, when he brained himself. And the WBF contingent in that part of the world are a good bunch too. Best of luck.

    Mate, the care here is fantastic. I was going to go home, but have no family there. I think I would be hard pressed to find better anywhere, and the nurses are brilliant. Already arranged to meet Mr. Sibley between courses.

    I cherish every one. Peace and love to you all, especially you, just now, Bobby. If I may.

    My heroes. Enjoy The Present, Friends.

    Peace,
    Robert

    Hey man, good luck.

    My mom is a survivor for 12 years now and her original diagnosis is similar to what you've described here.

    Hope it went well. (I refrained from posting picture of Liv Tyler)

    Almost 24 hours, no side effects yet. Picked up wife from airport, starting discussions and talking. Kids loving having mum and dad together. Coming from a base of kindness and openness. I need to keep the family as consistant as possible for the kids. And protect myself.

    I wish you both the very best. I know personally that kind of pain,
    and it can be overwhelming, but also can be overcome.
