2 YEARS 2 DAYS ASSHOLE cancer FREE!!!!

SOME UPDATES.....

SEPT 5 2018 WAS MY LAST DAY OF CHEMO/RADIATION- FEELING REALLY GOOD, STILL CANNOT EAT ICE CREAM BUT CAN EAT BEANS---GOTTA HAVE MY BEAN BURITTOS!

2 MONTHS AGO I LOST MY POSITION OF BLDG MGR FOR OUR COMMERICAL BLDG---ITS BASICALLY EMPTY BECAUSE HALF OF THE TENANTS COULD NOT AFFORT THE RENTS DURING COVID AND THE OTHER HALV ARE ALL WORKING FROM HOME.

THAT WAS LIKE 1/4 OF MY INCOME.

NOW THERE IS TALK THAT MAYBE MY RESIDENTIAL BUILDINGS WILL BE NEXT....NOT COVID RELATED, JUST OWNERS BITCH FIGHTING RELATED---ITS WHO BECOMES THE FAT BILLIONAIRE AND SITS ON THE OTHER TWO!

ME AND THE KIDS-BABY AND SPUDS ARE UP IN IDYLLWILD FOR 15 WONNERFUL DAYS.

ON NOV 16TH, I HAVE A COLONOSCOPY--DR. CHANG, MY RAD. DR THOUGHT IT WOULD BE GOOD TO CLEAR THE AIR.

AS I ALWAYS SAY---AS LONG AS I HAVE MY HEALTH, MY KIDS, A FEW PENNIES IN MY POCKETS AND A ROOF OVER OUR HEADS---LIFE IS GRAND!:):):)

WISHING ALL MY FRIENDS ON HERE A FANTASTICO LABOR DAY

Hard to believe it has been 2 years! So happy for you! Sorry to hear you have lost so much of your income.
Two years is a huge milestone! Congratulations! Sorry about your job situation, but you have a great outlook and that will see you through to more opportunities. Take good care, enjoy your hiatus/vacation, and keep celebrating those anniversaries!
Those two years have gone by so quickly! Well done that you are free of the C. May it continue. Sorry about the work situation, as you say as long as you have a roof over your head....
Congratulations! Sux about the income tho, but keep that positive outlook, something will turn up. Enjoy those two weeks!
Hi Richard, thank you for this news, and your upbeat spirit despite the financial problems!

I hope your doctor is not proposing the colonoscopy as a checkup on the cancer? A simple anoscopy can do that. A colonoscopy is way more invasive and can be pretty rough. IF you have never had one, then yeah, go ahead just to "clear the air!" And read this piece by Dave Barry: https://bussorah.wordpress.com/2011/03/01/dave-barrys-colonoscopy/
I like you attitude, Richard! And congrats, my how time flies; so glad that you have your health, shelter, family, and few pennies (hopefully the other stuff will workout).. enjoy yourself!
2 years? my gosh time went fast.
I hope the income situation gets back to normal soon.
I'm so glad, you are feeling well!
Hugs
I'm glad you're feeling well Richard. I'm sorry about your the income loss but appreciate your attitude. As long as you and the kids have each other, it's good. I hope the income comes back to you tenfold when things return and the panic is over. Stay well. 😘
Hi Richard,
Yes, we must be thankful for blessings big or small. This Covid induced plunge in the economy is heartbreaking. So sad to see so many people who lost their jobs, their businesses, and their homes. You have the love of your family which is wonderful. Enjoy your vacation and congrats on being NED.
Your news is good to hear. I remember your treatment stories well. Your outcome is what everyone hopes for. Sorry about the income flap, but we are about the same age. Maybe retirement is in the air. Kiss those babies for me.
Hi Richard...missed this posting when posted, glad to see your attitude hasn't changed. Sorry about the income loss, hoping it isn't raising you too much stress.
I've learned that eating peanut butter for dinner is better than having a Stressful job. After all we here have been through, life is seen through a different lens. Gratefulness rules!

1st MRI NOV. 5 2018--NO SIGN OF TUMER/GROWTH....2ND MRI--NO SIGN OF TUMER/GROWTH

a week after having completed my PSA and urine tests(5/22/18), i noticed blood in the toilet and completed the F.I.T--fecal immunochemical test.... I forgot to mail it in and drove to the VA and had them give me another one, did it and that afternoon i returned it...two days later i received a call to schedule a colonoscopy for June 04, 2018. results came back positive for a ployp that was excised and also a 4-5cm malignant growth on the dentate line of the anus--right smack in/around my spinchter muscle. T3N0M0...prognosis seems to be really good as it has not traveled nor gone into nodes. scheduled to start chemo/radiation with 5-FU and mitomyacin first 4 days and last 4 days using a PICC line.

AM NOT USING THE 5-FU....INSTEAD ITS CAPECITABINE 500MG
