Sorry that I've been tardy, but my wife, Lori, had me doing the heavy lifting stuff trying to finalize the move-in process. I get pretty tired early on in this game.
I'll start radiation and chemo this coming Tuesday. I'll be getting Oxaliplatin and Flourouracil (5-FU) as the chemo. I have sighting targets on my chest, rib cage, etc, and look somewhat I'd probably appear on a combat range - forgive me, as I'm still a hunter and shooter.
Every doctor I've met in the past 6 weeks think that I'm a fighter. I know that I am and I'll lick this scourge! Cooking for my wife, she can't make hardboiled eggs, is another deal. I just have to smell it and enjoy, if I can, and then go back to my Ensure and ice cream.
Bless you all for giving me the moral support and sheer guts to push onward. My Our God contine to smile on you.
