BENDA-R starting Monday

My mom (76) will be starting treatment this Monday after 2 years watch and wait with Mantle cell... Scared and anxious.

    Scott I couldn't easily locate your previous posts.

    You may have already spoken with screen name illead here. If not, send her a CSN e-mail, since she and her husband Bill are our official/unofficial Mantle Cell experts.

    In touch

    Hi Max, thanks for your kind words.  Yes I am in touch with Scott through priv mess, but I have been late in answering him so you got me going.  I just finished writing him.  Just so you know, Bill is really feeling good again.  It took awhile after his relapse but he is back to his old self, so as with everyone else we just keep on keeping on.

    Thinking of you,

    Becky

    Great line

    Super, Becky. Tell dear Bill I said hello.

    You said "keep on keepin' on."  Bob Dylan has a great line in one of his hits:

    The only thing I knew how ta do was ta keep on keepin' on on the avenue, tangled up in blue.

    Hootie and the Blowfish later borrowed the refrain in a hit of their own.  Darius Rucker and the band began at USC/Columbia (SC), but did many of their early gigs in Chrleston, where I'm from, so it just stayed prominent with me.  Today Darius is a massive solo artists, and still frequents town.

    Keep keepin on,

    max

    I love Darius' song Wagon Wheel. When we took a train trip last year I found myself thinking of this song as we "rocked" along the tracks.

    Hi Max

    Sorry I forgot to reply,  My sister and I have been overwhelmed with trying to find my seriously Alzheimers father somewhere to stay.  We finally succeeded today, now holding our breath to see if they'll keep him (severe sundowners).  Anyway I never heard of Darius Rucker so I googled him and guess what?  He's playing at our big amphitheater in Aug.!

    Becky,

    Darius, as I said, is now "Country," and a huge country hit.  He is one of the first huge black country music stars since the (also) black Charlie Pride made it big in country in the 1960s.  My mom had all of Charlie Pride's LPs, and I grew up listening to him as a kid in Charleston.

    As I noted, Darius founded Hootie and the Blowfish, and you might be more familiar with them than with Darius as a solo act.  As I understand it, Darius is still a Charleston regular.  I hope you go to the event,
