      John, for your recovery period, maybe get yourself a laptop layout...

      More seriously though, thanks for posting the next op date, and I'll be praying for you.

      Buddy, this waiting has gotta be tough...

      And the docs & nurses, with one of these:

      As a matter of fact, with this one you could almost -- naah, never mind.

      Thanks, but I already packed up my Z scale trains.

      Regarding my sister, whom I dearly love, it's all in my best interest, though at times her methods were overbearing. Please don't let my grousing paint the wrong image, I know she loves me and wants and needs me in her life almost as much as I need her. I make no bones about the fact she helped me beat it before and I credit her with saving my life. Now we are entering round II.

      My cat did need grooming, he had some dreds he wouldn't let me trim. Also needed to pass his health tests to be my companion when I do chemo, it really lowers my resistance. The vet doesn't groom, the vet does shave. Voila Lionel! He's in better health than me!

       

      While the operation was being bandied about as a Cure, it also raised my anxiety level and I was relieved as it played out.

      Now my Valentine will be an infusion of Etoposide to shrink my small cell cancer.

      Next is the exciting part, the new immuno-therapy that will use my internal immune system to kill off the cancer. My brother in law just had the procedure as a doctor's trial, it's so new. Tom, my bil, also is a Doc and he ran some of my biopsy tissue through his company's imaging service to make sure I have the markers needed.

       

      While I may miss having such an Awesome Scar, the recovery will be faster and I'll be breathing easier.

      Thanks guys, your concern is amazing!

      That all actually sounds "ok" (compared to the surgery and those risks). I hope the chemo and immuno-therapy are both effective and not too uncomfortable.

       

      You can beat this John!

      John,

       

      Any pokes I make at your sister are in full understanding of how much you appreciate her care. You very blessed to have a sister and brother-in-law like them.

      John,

      That is some cutting edge (no pun intended) treatment, and some of the only verifiably useful stuff coming out of the labs buys pushing the boundaries of bio- and genetic science (Yes, I am a sci-fi nerd.).  Our prayers for its success, and our thanks for blazing the way for medical practitioners to follow!

      Breathing does have its benefits.

      Pretty cool about the trusted treatment tester.

      (it took almost a full half minute to noodle out that alliteration, but that's okay, I just consider it making a sacrifice for a friend)
