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!

We used to yell VALHALLA before engaging the enemy.

I had a rough night as my pains became more frequent, but thankfully less severe and shorter in duration. It woke me up a lot. They changed my dressings this morning and a crew of docs was in here. So now at least 10 women have seen my junk and not a one of them has so much as kissed me first. My friend Angela came to visit me last night and I really needed it. She held my hand as I cried a little bit. I am fighting as hard as I can and being as strong as I can, but it sure is far from easy.

Stay strong, Ed. You may not know it, but you are quite an inspiration to many people like me who just lurk here. Keep on kicking cancer's butt and don't be afraid to lean on all your friends here.

John, my nurse for today, made me get out of bed and it was very painful, pulling on my incisions but it was not as bad as when they first put me into the bed. It went in 3 stages: Sitting up and putting my feet on the floor, standing up, then sitting in a chair. I don't have pain attacks across my abdomen in the chair, thankfully. Then he pulled the catheter out and that felt like someone stepped on my pecker. A PT lady came and got me to walk a lap around the hospital floor using a walker, and that went pretty well. I am very tired and sitting in the chair still but I may need to get back in bed and try to nap for a while.
