The Good, the bad, and the ugly.
« on: October 08, 2015, 08:46:51 PM »
Many of you wished me well on this past Tuesday's chemo treatment. The Good: no chemo this well. The bad: treatment was put off till next week due to the severity of the the side effects I've been struggling with. The ugly is due to the fact that the cancer keeps spreading and growing chemo is a long term part off my life. Only breaks will be when additional surgery is needed. That really sucks. Plus in 5 years I've had 5 major surgeries. Nothing that a new turntable and awesome RTR won't help a bit. I drown my sorrows in music. I'll let you know when everything is up for bids (lol)

I wonder if there are any alternative medicines that would help you.
Some say it could be what you eat.

My thoughts and prayers are with you Brad.  Keep your head up and fight the good fight!  You will probably bury us all!

Best regards,
Carl

Anders, problem is that I have a very aggressive type of cancer that keeps spreading. 5 major surgeries and tons of chemo so far has kept me alive, though miserable, for over 5 years since original diagnosis. I guess I have to be thankful for that. I do have an occasional melt down. The Pirates loss to the Cubs in the wildcard playoff was devastating after watching every game of the season. That same day the two RTR decks hooked up to my stereo Cramped out. I went to bed really pissed off.
Thanks

Thanks Carl, but if I bury any of you it would only be if you have really bad luck

I've got nothing else.

PBJ,

As Lightning Sam Hopkins said 'Bad luck and trouble, two of my best friends."

Just wanted to wish you the best as your treatment proceeds.   Despite your prognosis, you have a very good attitude about it all and that will carry a lot of the burden you have to bear.   

Have a musical weekend!
