I have stood back and regrouped for a few weeks. Today I start fighting again with an arsenal of new drugs and lots of support. Lets go get those bad cells. I think I know where several are hiding and I want to start there.

Theres nothing a soldier with dry socks and a serving of warm chow can't do if they put their full self into it. My socks are dry and I ate my Bran Flakes, time to muster some courage and get after this thing.

We have been there before so we know what we're up against. I understand that you are getting the head ready so the body will follow. Great battle plans...You will succeed in winning this war, simply just a few more battles to fight...It is very reassuring to know that you have geared up for the 2nd journey, and we'll be right here with you..Let us know whatever your needs are, we're always home......Now, time to do battle........Clift

I am on FOlfiri and cetuximab. Had the genetic test and I am KRAS wild type, so cetuximab is an option.

Hey Mike

Reinforcements are on the way...I'm being called back into the Battle myself next Thursday on the 15th...thoracotomy with wedge resection being done by the DaVinci surgical system.

So, I'll lead my division of troops up from the South and you and I will converge at the pre-appointed landing site - and then we'll lead our Army of Cancer fighters straight into the Jaws of the Dragon.

I'm just a few days behind you...I'm getting my mind right to fight and I'll eat something and then we'll both go kick some *** - how's that for a battle plan?

My thoughts are with you, brother
-Craig

You taught me the value of a good foot care plan, that Xeloda I was on about ate my feet up, thus "dry socks" good luck next week, I hope to have a toe hold on this assault by then.

Mike,

So good to see you have your fighting spirit. We are a week or two behind you trying to find our fighting spirit. Dick started Folfori and Avastin yesterday. Hooked up and will unhook tomorrow. Harder this time through but know it is going to be worth it.

Go Mike!

Aloha,
Kathleen

Socks still dry, stepped into a (vomitting) fire fight last night. My infusion nurse said once nausea is a sign of killing cancer, if so, It was like "Apocalyse Now" It may be a longer slog but the stakes are high and my morale is high and rising.

Puked in my shoes more times than Id like to imagine but ya know everytime I did, I simply wiped the crap from my face and stood up and told cancer to kiss my arse....its not gonna get me and its not gonna get you....so puke spit cry scream yell (I have found that kicking plastic trash cans around is great rehab) but do whatever it takes to keep the spirit up.....when ya get done throwing up, walk off with a smile and tell yourself, "its not gettin me".....then move right along with your life, cause it ain't gonna get ya bud....thats not allowed in here.......Clift
