edited April 2015 in Head and Neck Cancer #1

Just wanted to thank everyone for the thoughts and prayers for Shelley and myself most of last year..., that Whipple was a bear. But with the surgery in December, all is well to date, and hopefuly I'm done with everything health wise for another 30 years or so...

Gaining a few pounds back, enjoying life.., which includes fishing of course..., and my beautiful wife and life...

Above photo was Crappie (speckled perch) fishing on Lake Kissimmee this past Friday, April 3, 2015

BTW, i'm coming up on six years post Tx for STGIII Tonsils, HPV+.. Hang in there for you going through treatment, life can be great post...

One phrase I learned on the Whipple Warriors Forum...

NEGU = Never Ever Give Up...

    Glad you're doing better and back fishing.......

    But what you are holding belongs in a fish tank, not on someones plate. But I am glad you'er back to not only feeling good but doing what you love, fishing. That wipple is one rough go, but you whipped it too.

    So good to see your smiling face next to a Spec. You are not just a fighter, you are a fisherman and encourager. Blessings to you and your mate.
