    The bad news is that's like being the 3rd or 4th most attractive member of The Munsters.

    You will get through this, you will be stronger for it, and you will appreciate life more.

    Saw the surgeon today and he's very happy with things thusfar. Pathology showed no lymph node involvement from the 12 harvested, so that's a good thing. Since I had to go ahead and get the d!ckhead cancer I did though, it doesn't mean much beyond that it was caught early; still means nothing for my life going forward as this travels through blood as well.

    I won't have the genetic results (which has me beyond stressed) for another couple of weeks. Blood tests, which will give us a better idea about metastases, won't offer reliable levels until about the 3 month mark.

    That's all I got, now back to my scotch.

    FVCKING CANCER!

    I hope the hampur is a good source of distraction for you as you have a lot to deal with and have to think about.

    That being said, here is some distraction. Kate and a chicken.



    Also a through the intraweb shot with you. Cheers!

    On the bright side...you work in a hospital.




















    Too soon?

    Good news so far. I'm sure the three months must seem like forever. At least you caught it early. Good luck my friend.

    Well, I finally got back all my 3 month labs. Most important, all the genetic testing came back as negative, so it appears my children are in the clear! Also, my tumor load indicators have shown yet another drop, so it's officially a trend. W00t!!!

    That's great JW.

    Since you're doing well, can I laugh at "tumor load" now, like the simple man-child that I am?

    Just to keep me honest and for sh!ts and giggles, as soon as I made that update post, my daughter proceeded to have an epic tonic-clonic seizure, hypoxemia and all!!! Phuck my phucking life.

    I do appreciate all the goodwill and laughs, guys. It means plenty. Thanks.

    Fantastic news, Jw!

    Must be a great relief to know about the negative genetics!

    All the best for a continuing decrease in the load of tumors.

    Great news. I was going to bump the thread about a week ago to ask how you were doing but I did not want to encroach. Glad to hear everything is going well.

    Sorry about your daughter's seizure. Can't imagine what that must be like for you and your wife. God bless your family.
