Although the rains came on and off yesterday, it seemed as if nothing could dampen my spirits. I received a call from the pathologists office with the results of my Petscan. As I stated earlier this scan surveys the entire body for any trace of cancer. Well, I’m free and clear. No sign of cancer throughout my body. However, the brain tumor still must be removed because it is growing. I’m not symptomatic as of now but there is no need to wait for symptoms. That is, unless you count the inability to remember what you did yesterday. But I’ll equate that to TMB. Don’t know what TMB is? Well, that’s Too Many Birthdays, lol.I’m feeling great and got to share my story with a personal friend of mine. This is Rocky Bleier, a former Pittsburgh Steeler who had to overcome his own battle when shrapnel from a grenade rendered his leg almost useless during a stint in Vietnam. Determination and will became his allies and he went on to a glorious pro football career. He is a symbol of strength and mind overcoming matter to me. The tumor will just be a blip on the radar. I’m sure by the end of the month that too, will be a forgotten memory.
