Curiosity just had me check out some of my old records. It is official. March 12, 2011. Diagnosed with kidney cancer. Nephrectomy march 15th. Nothing but a barrel of laughs ever since. Still can't get that damn song out of my head. Although it has changed from a tune by the phantom of the opera played on a harpsichord in an old castle to something by Weird Al Yankovich.

    You get up too early

    But with a birthday like "5" there is a fabulous reason.  Go celebrate!

    Luv,

    Good for you Foxhd

    I wish you many years of health!!  You deserve only the best. 

    You brighten my day with your spunky responses (or as you refer to them as gallow humor) and your positive attitude.  I try like hell to emulate you.  I truly think every day this side of the grass is a day to learn something, and you sir are providing lots of us with the lesson of how to live life to the fullest.

    Thank you!

    Donna~

    P.S.  I LOVE your sense of humor, so please stay true to yourself.  Laughter IS the best medicine, no doubt.

    What are the odds? First something like only 15% of cancers are renal. Strike one. Response to IL-2, 15 ish %. Strike 2. Reaching 5 years stage 4, gotta be 15-20%, strike 3. When does the hard part begin? Been nothing but a walk in the park. With a lot of muggings.
