Aaron, How are you doing?

Hey Aaron,

I've been thinking of you since your last post saying you might be back in the chair.  How are you feeling?  When do you find out?

    Hey y'all

    I'm doing fine other than having the flu. They can't squeeze me in until next month because of the influx of new patients, looks like the aca rush is on. As greatly as it pains me to agree with John (just kidding ;) the aca looks like it has the potential to be a big poop sandwich that we ( at least I ) are all going to take a bite of. I like the idea of more people receiving care I just hope it doesn't cost us all too high a price and I don't mean money. I wish John would start posting again, I always appreciated most of the points he was trying to make even if the delivery left me a bit raw at times. anyway shar and max I feel great I just have some small nodes on my neck that are palpable so we'll scan em up next month and go from there.

    Hey Aaron!

    So good to hear from you!  That daughter in college yet? :).  Some of our regulars here (self included) just don't post as much and I miss John too.  I haven't had to pull an arrow out of my back since he stopped posting and I kind of miss the "pain".  So, John (and I know you're reading the posts), we would love to hear from you again.  I agree with Aaron about delivery and even if I don't always agree with you.  

    So, Aaron, hang tight and you and Shar don't be strangers.

    Jim

    Hey Arron !

    I hope your medical assessment happens soon !  John got run off by a self-appointed First Amendment expert, who apparantly knew more about free speech than Thomas Jefferson did.  But, there is a lot of that in society today. 

    The following is video of Sen Baucus, a DEMOCRAT, who personally WROTE much of the Obamacare law.  Listen to what he says.

    This is NOT COMMENTARY, it is testimony from the man who designed Obamacare (with many others and huge staffs, of course) himself.

    Listen and weep !  "Train wreck?"  More like "nuclear meldown."

    Note also: Baucus made this assessment BEFORE hundreds of thosands learned that the "If you like your doctor, you can keep him"  promise was incorrect, which has been more of a political nightmare that the Website diaster.

    Wish you the best

    Aaron I wish you the best, and hope that node in your neck is just reaction to the flu. As I share the same HL type/stage with you and MAX I always keep up with both of your posts. I was done with treatment at the end of July and my last CT scan was on DEC 10 and shows NED (Thanks GOD). Keep us updated.

    Thanks

    Thanks for the we'll wishes, I surely appreciate it. Max your analysis is spot on as always. It really stinks to see so many being dropped from their coverage, a rough rollout of something on this scale in my opinion is to be expected. I find it almost ironic that John got run out by someone touting the first amendment?!? for all our disagreements I always thought his postings embodied the spirit of the first.

    Posting

    I wish John and everyone on this thread would post more! These boards are just not as engaging as they used to be.

    (Thank you, Max for continuing to be a regular.)

    Hello!

    Hey Aaron!  Sorry I took so long to get back to the board.  I hope that your nodes turn out to be nothing!

    I hear you about the flu.  My hubby has had a wierd bug for about 3 weeks now and it's still hanging on.  I keep feeling things in my sinuses, but tell myself I'm not going to get it!  :)  I hope you feel better soon.
