Ry Posted September 20, 2004 Share Posted September 20, 2004 'This is a message I received from Grumpy One Lung. I don't think he'd mind me posting it, it's a great story: This is not where I should post this but I saw your name(s) (Ry) and just had to post here so I did. Still miss your gettogether up north of me, but when the hospital calls you must go, really missed being able to meet you all. Since I last posted here I have had a Hernia repaired, a Cataract repaired, and was at deaths door. I spent a month not being able to eat and lost something like 50 pounds. The story of my still being here goes something like this. My 7 year old granddaughter told me one day that I was not going to be here for Christmas this year, and she needed me to be hear. So, I got to thinking about that. I had refused Chemo (I knew it would kill me so no deal), and they wanted me to take Radiation at the same time, I refused. But following what my very cool granddaughter said to me and knowing that I was going to die soon, I went for both, well here I am 5 weeks later and 100 percent better then I have been during the past 19 months. Hows that for a turn around? So much for coming back from the edge. I have not been here much in some time because I was so down, but I am back now, will try to watch where I post from now on though, LOL. To all and any new comers, a big Welcome to you all. There are hundreds of LC folks here with just tons of stories and good information for you and I daily. Please read away and see how many of us have like problems and how we deal with it. Of course doctors are welcome here. I always wondered how many we had on this site. All of My Prayers and Best Wishes to Us All.
