Well as all good news comes some bad has to be added with it. After a nice long meeting with my Dr yesterday, he feels going back to work would only add to the stress in my life and has made it a point that i dont do it now. We know i will be having chemo again, how soon is not known. As it looks now a few months is a good guess. If i make it 6 months i can have the same treatment over again but not before then. Good news is im feeling ok, slight discomfort but ok. God has blessed us with my wife getting a good job teaching and that also added to the decision to not stress about work. This way i can spend time with my son and take him to school every day he goes. I still plan to be outgoing and into this sport till the day the good lord takes me so dont think im back down. This is just another bump in my road, my rocky, rutted , muddy slow going road. Im gonna make the best of this, and may start doing some rig builds in spare time. Hell ive always wanted to be my own boss........

I agree with your doc.. I have a cousin who fought that shit twice by the age of 30 (22-24 and 27-29 years old roughly). He is still kicking and knows what to do to never take anything for granted. He never worries about $ just enough to take care of what he needs and have fun.

My family and I are super happy your doing well. Keep it up pal. And thanks for sharing your story.

Who wants smooth sailing anyway, too boring

As a fellow member of the cancer club (5 years and counting), I feel your frustration... I had surgery to remove the malignancy (sp) 5 years ago and that was to be the "only surgery". 10 days later I was under the knife again followed by 6 months of radiation treatment. 12 months after that back to more radiation. It seems to be an ongoing thing but try not to let it get you down! Sounds like you have one hell of a family and lots of support.

My take is that things are just the way they are supposed to be right now. Hope to see ya over here at the Mounds soon!

Well i figured i would let you all know im heading in for another scan on Wednesday. Hoping for the best, have not been eating as much as normal as of late but maybe that is normal. I sure am nervous about this test. I have not been this nervous ever for a scan. Im keeping busy and keeping my mind busy but it is always in the back of my thoughts.

Good luck collin, I'm sure the lack of appetite has something to do with you worrying so much. Let me know if there is anything I can do for you!

Man, When I woke up this morning and seen this email on my phone, I though it was a bad dream.

I hope all goes well for you, you have the right attitude and a lot of people pulling for you.

If by some horrible reason there is something not right and you have to go back on treatment, let me know and I will shave my head bald to show support and keep it that way until you are 100%

Good lucks and many prayers man

Thanks guys. Im still doing fine. I talked with my family Dr today after church and he seems to think my lack of appetite it from the oral meds. So i think all it well.

You will be in our prayers and you know we are wishing the best for you. Let us know how it goes. Stress can reduce your appetite too, so the more you worry the less you are probably eating.
