So thanks to everyone that helped make my poker tourney such a huge success. I had such a great time too. I loved getting to see everyone there. Unbelievable.!!!! A even huger thank you to Patti my sister for her hard work and sacrifices to make this all possible. My cornhole partner Tom and I kicked butt. We almost won the Cardinals tickets. I'm thinkin we need to hit the road, and win some major tourneys wherever you go to do that.
Chemo starts next week on the 5th, 6th, and 12th. rest 2 weeks, then start again. This goes for 6 courses, and we see that I am kicking butt, and go from there. She said for sure I'm going to lose my hair. So my friend Tracy is going to cut it for me next Tues.
We get to go camping with the Shirks this weekend. I can't wait

Recovering nicely eating the Shirks homemade beef stroganoff...Yum Yum.

Chemo crud

Well I met with Dr Gladding today, and found out that I can still play softball too.
The surgery to get the ports for chemo will be on THurs am at Estrella hospital. I get to stay overnight. THAT'S IT. No more than that. Seems pretty cut and dry for these insertions. I love Dr Gladding. She is the best.
Next week I have an appointment with the oncology nurse. She will get me set up for a routine.
Thanks again from me to you. Everyone has been so special to me and my family. I love you all

Dr. Volk saw me Friday and gave some very, very promising news. The chemo I will receive should kick butt nicely. Said I, if anybody, should have a fantastic outlook. I called Sandy Gladding the best surgeon I know. She will be seeing me at 11am tomorrow to arrange surgery to put in the ports for chemo. One in my chest for chemo and one in my abdomen for what they call intraperitoneal chemotherapy. We will kick this thing's butt from all angles!!
