  I know its been a while. I'm still alive, just have a lot to deal with lately. My wife is still battling cancer but she is doing about as well as one can, with all the chemo. I am hoping she is almost done with the really bad stuff but the next two months will tell. Old chrones has been working me over pretty good too, but I still have my good days. Hope you guys are doing well. By the way, my e mail adrs is still on my profile and I do my best to answer mail. Not much more to say. Have not been laughing much lately so no funny stories today. Take care, and welcome to all the new people...

I am new, so I don't know you, but wanted to send a little support your way. I hate cancer, it has affected my life so much. My father-in-law has terminal cancer, my grandma had it, my aunt has lung cancer, my brother just passed away before Xmas with pancreatic cancer, my uncle just passed from lung cancer, my dad had testicular cancer back when he was 28, my grandma passed from pancreatic cancer when I was young, etc. etc.... I feel for you. It is a rough journey you are on, but here's to hoping the sunrise will warm your heart.
