Thanks for the update, it's always great to hear from you! I do hope your "undies" were clean as your mom would really give you a lecture.

I am praying that these treatments will get rid of that pesky tumor. Dang it, I sure wish they could have taken it out. I know that wasn't possible, though.

Chemo and radiation at the same time, yuck, you'll probably be taking lots of naps. I do hope and pray that your leave is helping by giving you more time to rest and recover.

How is Lori's new job going? I'm sure they all love her. Soon, she'll probably be running the whole show :)

Keep us posted and take care of yourself! Don't over-do it at the camp out. I know that's like telling the wind to quit blowing, though.

Hugs and prayers,
Penny

HI Keith -- thanks for the update. Your description of your radiation prep day was ...interesting, and probably meant to be somewhat comical...but many of us can totally relate to the humiliation of the experience as well. But, as is your gift, you seem to have handled it with humor and grace. In the end, what else can you do? God's blessings and comfort to you as you deal with both radiation and chemo this week.

Keith your story hits close to home and I am glad you are telling the story so others will know and understand what happens through your treatment process and the help and support available if needed. Now as to the guitar...Well believe it or not I do bring it out more often, still don't know what I am doing but keep saying "I can do this I just have to get my mind and finger moving together. Peace.

Keith, you're a great guy and I admire you for your tenacity and positive attitude, but I really think you need to cut your mother some slack. After all, she didn't even mention that you used the word "lay" instead of "lie" over and over. I've heard she's a pretty nice woman and that she makes pies for you, so why don't you give her a break! Keep trucking',

Oh, what a horrible experience Keith!  I was having a panic attack just reading this.  Although, I had to chuckle at the visual image you described of being wheeled around in a coffin.  I hope the radiation treatments go much easier for you.  Keeping you in my prayers!

Keith,
Thanks for your post today - had the biggest laugh of the day.  Yes, I had no problem seeing a visual - thanks for sharing!  AND, by the way, so glad you helped a poor nurse learn some new 'words' today, but trust me, we "girls" are relieved when we hear "You may leave your 'panties' on!"

Thoughts & prayers are with you always.

You have always been my hero ever since I reached out to you late one night five years ago when My husband was diagnosed,.  You were our strength, hope and guidance through the ordeal.  We continue to pray for you each and every step of the way.  So many friends, near and far, who have benefited from your journal here on Caring Bridge. Continued thoughts and prayers are with you always and I hope that this latest procedure will kill this tumor. Thanks for posting and keeping us informed on our special "Friend".
