In Memoriam>Good news [Lonewolf Ed]
Lonewolf Ed 04:51 PM 01-24-2015
I thought I'd start a new thread for updates on my cancer treatments and whatever else is going on, since the bad news thread title is misleading now.

My last treatment went better than the previous two and my chest wound is still closed up, which is a good thing. My arm is getting slightly stronger and I hope to resume lifting dumbbells next week. I need to build up my strength again, because I am going back to Denmark in May and I am extremely pumped about that! I'd like to be able to schlepp my own checked bag and not have someone else lifting it for me.

It's going to be a fabulous trip, 6 weeks and a couple of days for me. My brother is going along as well as my friends Chipp and Rod. Chipp is staying close to 3 weeks and has not gone with me over there since 2006 so he is also very pumped to be going. It will be Rod's first trip and he will be there for 2 weeks. I will get to be a tour guide. Also, I am throwing a party in my favorite pub of all, the wonderful, ever-magnificent Irish House in Aalborg on May 7th. The owner and I are friends and he will give me a little discount. We'll have Irish stew and brews in the cellar and I hope to have around 25 family and friends there. I might bill it as the "Fu** Cancer Party." A few months back, I was not sure I'd ever be able to go over to Denmark again or if I'd even be alive, but the cancer hasn't gotten me yet. I'm doing a number on it, instead.

Some other cool things I plan to do when I am back in my ancestral lands include a wine tasting in a castle, touring another castle and the northernmost manor home in the country, and visiting Skagen, the top of Denmark, where you can stand on a little patch of beach and have one foot in one sea and one in another. They also have a brewpub up there I am wanting to check out. I will start and end my trip in Aalborg and spend 5 weeks in an apartment I rent that is very close to the beach. I can hardly wait for May 4th to roll around!

Would it be a good or bad thing to get a link to this thread for any loved ones? I know if it was my mom/dad/brother/uncle posting things like this I might want to read some of it. There might be some bad stuff in here too that some might not want them to see but that is why I am asking.

I've never experienced reading someone who was so unfazed by impending death. I'm sure it wasn't easy, but that guy was really good at dying.

You will be missed. Send us a note about Heaven's golden streets.

I wouldn't. He did post a lot about his struggles(especially as the disease progressed) and if I'm one of the family members I might feel a tinge of guilt thinking I didn't do more to help alleviate the suffering.

Fucking A right. He fought like a champ and drowned the beast. Fuck cancer.

I actually don't think we should. It's always been a positive-outlook thread, and I don't see a strong argument that that should be changed (particularly since this thread is destined for the HOC as soon as we run out of things to say).

RIP Ed. What an amazing journey. You touched so many here with your words. God Bless.

Fuck Cancer.

I'm friends with Lonewolf Ed on Facebook, and just read a post stating that he passed this morning.

RIP, Ed. You have left a heck of an impression on us all.
Godspeed Ed. You are already missed.

Rest in peace, Ed. You are now pain free and with your savior. That's GREAT news to me.

Same here.

RIP Ed. Your life lessons will never be forgotten.

I know some of you know Ed's full name.

Hopefully someone can post his obituary when it's released. I would love to read about his life.

Thanks for informing us Timbone

For a person what he's been through and then to be on hospice and still inspriring, advising, sharing so much more until the end...That's just pure righteousness right there. God bless his family and loved ones. The soul of that man is amazing.

May he Rest In Peace
