Fox Loves You!!!

Karma David and family. So sorry.

I do not remember much of this year. I have failed every treatment when they all used to work. My memory and comprehension have been affected by brain mets. Very forgetful. I don't have a clue to the date.... I am also down about 100 pounds. Extremely weak througout my body.  Arms and hands don't work. This is all 1 finger typing which will take an hour or 2. My walking is ok on level but I need some help on steps. Fortunately I haven't fallen.

I have been able to once again accept the trauma from metastatic cancer. The disease is costing me my life but not this week.  I think people don't really see the physical damage from cancer. The heart, lung, brain, bone, and muscle all get hit with more than they can tolerate creating permanant damage. But sometimes what doesn't kill you makes you stronger.

I will take a month or so and decide on a plan. It will be about QOL not long term survival. I won that game for almost 7 1/2 years!

...are heading your way.  I am a short-timer on this board, but have felt and seen your impact here.  Thank you for being here and being such a strong advocate...such an uplifting poster...and using your time to help others with this strange and scary journey we've all been thrust into.

Whatever decisions you make, I hope they bring you peace and comfort.  I also hope you can kick this in the *** again and be here for another 7 1/2 years.

Hey Foxy baby !!! No wonder you have been on my mind of late! I even checked to see if you are ever online, even when you don't post. 

Glad you posted today! I don't know if you HAVE to type yourself, or if you could ask someone

to do it for you. But nontheless, happy to SEE YOU TODAY!

You know you can have hospice before your body is actually ready to go. They work for YOU! They may have some helpful tools and are a support for you and your wife. 

Either way, I JUST LOVE YOU, more and more and more and more and more!!!!!!!!!

Healing hugs, 

Jan

Think about it...it's amazing what one finger can do.  We all appreciated hearing from you, know matter what is happening.  Glad this week is being nice to you.

We drove to Bellingham, WA for a grandson's college soccer game and passed a number of Harley Dealerships.  And a lot of the groups like to ride down US Hwy 101.  I think ot you every time I see a Harley.  I know you can't ride now, but go out and catch the wind from Hurricane Florence blowing thru your hair and pretend you're riding

Lots of Love,

I think of you daily as well, and have been wondering how you're doing. You're the strongest person I know. You keep it all real.

You're getting ready to FLY and what a trip it will be!

Thank you for checking in with us. You know how much it means to all of us.

Fly, Fox, Fly.

I'm really glad you posted this today. I think about you and wonder how your doing. My heart goes out to you and your family. You've been through so much. I can't imagine what your going through,  but you have everyone on here praying for you and sending nothing but love your way! I joined the club in January, you were there for me in the begining of my journey. Thank you for all your advice and knowledge. Take care my friend.

Very nice to hear from Fox. You epitomize the immortal words of Jimmy Valvano:

"Cancer can take away all my physical abilities. It cannot touch my mind, it cannot touch my heart, and it cannot touch my soul. Those three things are going to carry on forever."

Hi Fox,

Thinking about you. We both started on here pretty close to the same time. I'm still doing my best. I'm on drugs 10 and 11 at the 7 year mark. It's not easy that's for sure. You've helped a lot of people on here, including me. I wish you the best with your decision. Peace, David

You've inspired me since I first found this place. Your strength and determination amaze me. You remain in my thoughts; I wish you the best QOL possible and comfort during the rough days. You continue to inspire and support us, even when it's difficult for you . You are a one-of-a-kind, Fox. I think we're all better off, and dealing with our own cancers as best we can, thanks to the amazing example you've set. Fly when the time is right, and know you've done some major good and given hope to a lot of people.

Hi Fox, you are one of the legend here and have been leading all the new comers on this fight. I am sure those who gave you the initial prognosis have dropped their jaws on the floor on how you managed to won this game! The knowledge you provided have helped and will help thousands to fight this game as well.

I wish you and your family peace.

Thank you!

As others have noted. You advised me to forget the impending scar and focus on beer and pizza when I first asked for help here. Whatever is ahead for you sending positive thoughts to you and your loved ones.

You have left a legacy here on this forum board.  You have been an inspiration as we walked through this journey with you.  When we were fearful, I would tell my husband about your journey to strengthen him and give him hope.  I love your wit and determination.  I remember one of the 1st posts I read that you wrote was that having cancer was like having a song stuck in your head.  Even on your best days it is still in your mind.  Keep fighting and posting.  We are all praying for you!

Foxy, I am giving you my permission to feel ANYTHING you want, in an way you want!

You don't have to be strong.

You don't have to do anything for anyone but yourself. 

This is YOUR life, your journey. 

BUT you must notice how much LOVE is pouring out and surrounding you. 

Let US be your strength.

Let US be your inspiration

Let us follow your legacy~

 

Healing, Hopeful, loving

HUGs,

Fox, thank you for continuing to share your experiences with us even through these difficult days for you.

At some time or other we will all face what you are now facing, and will hopefully benefit from your insight, just like we have all done up to this stage.

Stay cool, man.

Peace and best wishes as always, Fred
