  • Hello once again

    Hello everyone. I just wanted to let people know I am still here, silently ready and being touched by the kindness of others. There needs to be more support like this in life. So far everything has gone well.
    The last thing I had was a RPLND on both side on Jan 2nd. 43 staples and 73 lymph nodes later, I got the all clear. I would do it again for those 5 little words. I didnt think that it was as bad as I though it could have been, but you might ask my wife that. Also I moved to Dallas/Fort Worth and am looking for a good doctor if anyone knows one here. Thanks once again.

    Read and speak aloud with us! Most of the day I hear people talk and talk, not really having anything to say. I can hear volumes in one or two words from anyone here. Don't ever be afraid to come home to Family.
    I Love My Pack!

          Glad to hear you're doing well.

          Tho' much is taken, much abides; and though we are not now that strength which in old days moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are; one equal temper of heroic hearts, made weak by time and fate, but strong in will; to strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.
