    Nate, I'm so sorry. News like this effects me a lot differently than it used to. Give her my best.

    Nate, that's terrible. So sorry to hear. Knowing all of you that survived it and the occasional joke about it have a way of making it seem less threatening. Things like this bring the true gravity of cancer out. My thoughts are with her.

    This kind of thing seems to effect people more when they get older. At least that's how it is with me.

    That, and I'm a recent survivor. I met a lot of amazing people in the hospital who were in similar circumstances as Nate's friend.

    second opinion now says that there is no cancer lining the brain/spinal cord, but the tumor she had in her brain has grown. this improves the prognosis and suggests if they can get her other issues (ammonia in the blood and jaundice) under control that she may have months instead of days.

    That is better news. There is a treatment that is called cyberknife whereby pinpoint radiation is applied to a tumor. My dad was scheduled for this but he became too weak for it. Perhaps it may not be too late for your friend...

    Not until after Christmas. Being sick at this time of the year has become a massive PITA with everyone slackening off or closing up shop altogether.

    I did end up with lovely welts from all the tape that was used to secure all the wires. Work up at 4am wanting to rip the bloody thing off my body. Managed to stick it out till 6am, when I had to be done with it.

    Hopefully this will be the last set of tests that I need to go through to give the doctor an answer, as its at the point where I just want to know what it is.

    Waking up every day knowing that at some peroid during the day I am going to feel like absolute shyte is really doing my head in.

    Hang in there man. Not knowing what's wrong with you is the sh|ts. When they figure it out and you can do something about it, that takes a load off.

    Nate - sorry for your loss. Losing someone is never an easy burden to bear. Hope things get better.

    As for me the only thing I'm upset with is the fact I sold the car early this year. Cabin fever sucks. I really want to go to the coast and a few other places.

    The bike ride helped. Try to get out for another one tomorrow.

    I am angry today, so need to post before I go nuts.

    1. Wife has to go in to have some cancer removed on Feb 4th. Just found out this week and looks to be simple but I guess you never know until the it is done.

    2. Things have been slow at work and I have to look for new work again for 4th time in 2 years and sold a parted out bike on Ebay to pay Jan mortgage. A bike that I loved and never wanted to sell. The crank that came on it sold and was delivered on X-mas eve and the DB that won the auction wants to return it. Well my ad clearly states that I do not accept returns and I do not have the money to return to him. And why should I (he won the auction and got what he won!), I cannot eat the shipping costs to him and I will not. Freakin hate this world.
