I had a visit with a chemo onc today to discuss my recurrence of the malignancy in my neck. The fact that this little beastie laughed at the radiation and came back a few months later had me very concerned. Well, the doc was very reluctant to give me a firm "expiration date" as was to be expected. So, the news is that he suspects a 50/50 chance of this thing spreading and if it spreads, it can be treated, but two years from then would be a reasonable expectation. I don't know whether to laugh or cry. So, I am going to take this information but I am not going to let it run (or ruin) my life. $%^& cancer! It is amazing to me that I spent the first 58+ years as a robust, strong and very healthy guy and now I am reduced to this. Sorry, some of this rambling is today's news and some of it is the beer I am drinking tonight. I have never been a negative type person and I am determined to keep going and enjoy life as long as I can. I am very thankful for a wonderful wife and support group at home and here on this site.
