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!

Hang in there bud. Cherish your time out of country. It would have been easy for you to be bad enough to miss it.

I am extremely happy and thankful that I got to go. If I had not been able to, I don't know what my mindset would be now, but I can promise you, it wouldn't be rosy and joyful. My spirit needed the recharge and my body needed the break. I actually feel better now than I have all year. Tomorrow, the chemo starts again, so I know I will be going downhill a bit.

So far, so good. I got the needle in the chest and it was barely more than a mosquito bite. It's not even uncomfortable in my chest, which is what it usually feels like for 15 minutes or so. Nurse done good!

I consulted with the colon surgeon today and am now set for surgery on August 12th. He said I will be in the hospital for 5 to 7 days. Damn, I hate that part most of all. I won't be able to lift over 20 lbs. or thereabouts for 6 weeks and it will take 6 months for me to heal 100%. It's going to be a rough autumn and winter.

What are they doing? Are they taking out the infected part of your colon?

Yeah, but you'll have ACTUAL football talk on CP to keep you company! Just think, REAL football insight provided in this forum to keep your fine mind occupied whilst your body heals.

Clearly, you can handle the chemo. I;m sure you'll handle the surgery nicely. Not sure you can handle this forum when Alex under throws Maclin for the umpteenth time....

Yes, he said about 10 cm of it.

That Alex part sounds like it might hinder my recovery!
