Thank you for all the support and concern. The last few chemo treatments were kicking my butt but I am back and better than before. I just finished my last full round of chemo and am awaiting the scan results. I find out later today what the results are and then the doc and I are going to have "THE BIG TALK" about what they are going to do with me next. Hopefully he won`t tell me he has to take me out back and shoot me. For some odd reason I am at peace and not at all on edge about it. Whatever comes I am prepared and if it is negative I will deal with it then. It`s still early on and I have plenty of options left. In the immortal words of lesvanb - Ain`t dead yet. Please pray for positive results or I guess, technically, negative results. I will fill you in this evening. I would love to be called Ned. Once again thank you and even though I haven`t been on I think of you all frequently. All of you are very giving and supportive and it does not go unappreciated.

Your friend and fellow semi colon,
Eric ( : . )

    Book and Film that I got to remind myself of with your post. Thought the theme of,
    "how hope is essential to life. Dreams give hope. Life becomes tenuous when dreams are broken and hope is lost," showed an interesting parallel with what you and all of us to some extent go through with a cancer dx.

    Will look for Mr NED later!
