I met with the Oncologist yesterday morning at The Mayo in Scottsdale.....


ZERO change in my "spots" --- so no growth --- and more importantly --- NO CANCER found elsewhere either..... And given the location of the cancer (lymph nodes) this is very excellent news.

Not the news I had hoped for.... Which would have been --- "the spots are gone".


So the Doc was obviously pleased ---- and more importantly extremely SURPRISED with the results. I finally asked him ---- "so what did you expect to see this visit?" He said A LOT of growth -- and in fact -- they'd wanted me to come back one month after this last diagnosis because they wanted to measure and track the growth.

The other thing I think EVERY cancer patient should ask to have done ------ GENOMIC SEQUENCING!! I had my cancer cells shipped to Foundation One for testing. They figure out exactly what you're particular cancer cell is ---- and then search for a known match for drugs to treat it -- or clinical trials being run etc.

Sadly ---- The cells I have are known to have NO CURE NO EFFECTIVE TREATMNET.... so basically --- I'm a walking dead guy now. BUT don't worry -- not soon === not suffering ---- not really sick --- hanging my shingle out ---


GONE RACIN'

Well..... I don't know as I'd characterize it as that exactly! The first go 'round I certainly did ---- so that's bought me 2 years so far (A VERY VERY VERY LONG TIME!!! Given the "6 months to live").

Cancer likes to mutate and is an EXTREMELY TRICKY little F ***er......

Glad it's better than the Doctor was expecting. I was wondering how you made out but didn't want to overstep be checking with you. Fight on!!

Greg,
Glad to hear you are still going to test the car
Many have told me once you drive a tube frame car
then you will never want to go back to anything else
I also envy the sequential you have
Have fun,be safe and keep trucking on

Like they say
Its all about RACIN everything else is just waiting

Bob

Love all you guys..... thank you all for the kind words.


These spots are "only" a 1/4" right now. The problem is not the size -- but the location. It probably couldn't get in a worse spot. But we have no control over such things.

We didn't ask to be born - we don't want to die - but we ALL will. Get over it. Just keep living. If we woke every morning and asked "is today the day?" we'd live miserable, feeble, little lives. WE (Lat Gr's) do not live miserable, feeble, little lives. WE (Lat Gr's) get up and kick ass.
