A Dinner with my favorite Uncle, Uncle Ned (sorry Uncle Jimmy and Marc)

Five years from diagnosis, the nerves between the CT scan and the results continue.  I hate that.  But, then, I get a visit from my Uncle, NED.  We go out to dinner with my family, but I pick up the check.  NED has been here for 4 years; Hopefully, he comes again in November.  Then, I will only see hime once a year.  

How did I celibrate?  With a new Bicycle (ok, with a little 350 w motor).  

Four years ago, the word cured was not in my vocabulary.  I was stage 4 with a met and sarcomitoid features.  10-20% 5 year survival rate.  There is hope.

    I think

    dhs,

     

    You are certainly wearing the uniform of a winner this year in anticipation of a NED year. I remember watching the Washington Senators play the Tigers at Briggs Stadium back in 1959 on the day I got my driver's permit. I got a foul ball hit by one of the Senators.

    do be honest, I had nothing to say

    And I was getting down seeing the sad news.  I did post on my 5th anniversry of the diagnosis.
