Most of you know my ordeal. T3B, starting Chemo, then radiation, then HT. It is difficult enough trying to cope with this stupid disease that consumes my life now. Today I have it compounded. My dear friend, and former coworker of 16 years has joined us. RB is one of the best people you will ever meet. He has G7 T2C, just like I did pre-op. He has elected to undergo Proton treatment at Loma Linda. We talked about it for a while, but I assured him it was likely the best move for him as he is 17 years my senior. I told him I stand behind my surgery as I am too young to take a chance that radiation doesn't work. RB is with us in God's hands and for him I dedicate one of our group hugs. He is leaving today for a couple months to Riverside, CA. I guess I am heading back to SoCal again. RB took the time to see me, and you can count on us reciprocating.
