    Thanks Folks
    I'm here. Just enjoying the side effects of more and more chemo. I meet tomorrow with surgeon to figure out about the RFA. After "having it easy" for 10 months on only Erbitux the CPT11 hit me kind of hard. I had forgotten how much it sucks. So now it's back to every other week until.......I don't do it every other week. Gotta love the vagueness of it all. It really pisses my wife off, I'm used to it for the most part. I get chemo until I don't get chemo.

    I've just been laying low and resting and am back to work and all. Sorry I have not been able to add much input. You're all in good hands with Buzzard and all of the others.

    I don't know about the rest of you but sometimes I get so sick of "cancer this, and cancer that". I know that this site is great for support and I feel a bit selfish but at the moment I don't want to think about cancer unless I have to. I'm burnt out a bit.
    I'll check in when I can.

    Hi Phil
    I do know what you mean about "cancer burnout". Your wit and wisdom will be missed but we understand the need for a break.

    I know what you mean
    Pill, I know what you mean. Sometimes it just gets to be too much for even the strongest to put up with. Glad to see you're okay though, and back to work. Good to hear from ya.

    I totally understand
    Hi Phil,

    I remember you saying something similar to me a while back. Take a break for as long as you need and take care of yourself. Enjoy thinking about things OTHER than cancer!
    Stay strong- it does suck, but you can do it.

    Take care & will be thinking of you-

    Good to hear from you
    Dear Phil,

    Great to hear from you. Totally understand the "burnout", I've been doing the same as far as posting. Just don't feel like I have much wisdom or ability to express my compassion, understanding etc. Sure hope you can get some rest and peace. Take as long as you need but check in once in a while cause we miss you and care for you deeply,

    Blessings to you,

    Debbie, (gramma)

    I totaly ralate to you
    right now! I've started up my chemo again, and I too forgot how much it can wipe you out. I find myself not on the board as much in the past few weeks either. I want to, I just have nooo energy! Sometimes like Phil said you need a little break from it all!
