I haven't been on here for awhile but I like to check in now and then to let people know that things are going very well and I am in recovery. It's been over four years since I was diagnosed with colon cancer and since my resection. The tumor was the size of an orange, but I was Staged 2A since it hadn't spread. I elected to do Chemo and had a rough ride, but you have to do what you have to do. I continue to get scans and so far all is good. My wife and I have been super busy, selling a house at the beach and buying a house in a rural location where we can have horses. I know, I know, why would anyone in their right mind move from the beach, but we like having lots of land for our dogs to run free...and for me to run free for that matter...which I do on a regular basis by jogging ten times around the property. We recently saw Oz at the Moonlight Theater in Vista, CA. A great play. And last weekend we were at Jazz in the Park in Carlsbad, CA. Life is fun and I hope to keep it that way. No matter how hard it seems at times just fight the good fight. We have a number of friends who have and are battling cancer and they are beating the odds. One friend was full of cancer in one lung and had three brain tumors and the doctors gave him little chance, but he battled back and is now nearly recovered. There is always hope and always a reason to enjoy the days that we have. They are finding new treatments everyday and people are recovering every day.
