Health Issue

Coming Up Roses


A run for the Roses, that’s what it is like.  To run for the finish line, having cancer and being on treatment is sort of like a race.  It’s a race for life.  I’ve been running that race and yesterday I crossed the finish line. 

I was told, that all my numbers and scans showed improvement and the cancer is retreating or being held at bay.  I will continue to stay on the treatment for the next two years and hopefully we will see even more improvement.

I’m feeling well, and doing well.  I’ll keep running.  Somewhere, back in the past BC, that’s before cancer.  I heard this story. 

Everyday, somewhere in Alaska there is a Caribou, who wakes up knowing all he has to do is outrun the fastest Wolf to survive. 

Everyday, somewhere in Alaska, there is a Wolf, who wakes up knowing all he has to do is outrun the slowest Caribou to survive. 

The moral of the story is no matter what, when the sun comes up, you better be running.

    p.s. You’ve always been good at maintaining LOL so this should be a piece of cake.

    Thanks Larry, yeah the last scans looked good. It’s still there but not growing and in some places retreating in size. I still have to stay on the immunology-therapy once every three months for the next two years along with the Zometa for the bones every month. The PSA is not in the normal range, but the Oncologist isn’t worried about that as much as the metastasizes in my spine and other places.
