Don't worry. The tumor was probably caused by years of watching the Chiefs. That would make it a Chiefs tumor. Nothing associated with the Chiefs has won anything in over 40 years. You'll beat this thing.

I'm not very religious, but this is certainly testing whatever religion I have clanging around in my head.

The most important thing in illness is never to lose heart, and attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.

You got this though.

Currently, I am hungry as hell and craving a Minsky's pepperoni pizza on thin crust with extra cheese! My first round of chemo went to me, and hopefully put some good thumps on the cancer. None of the nasty side effects got me. I did buy some extra bags for the sweeper just in case... but so far, I am still a furry bastard. It's even growing back where the one nurse-tech-whatever guy glued leads on my back without shaving me first and where they shaved my chest to put in the port (and does that ever itch!)

A few days ago, one of the lingering side effects went away, so now my mouth doesn't react as if I have something sour. All the foods I ate still tasted normal, but some things made my back salivary glands tweak, just like if I had eaten some extra sharp cheddar. Ooh, that sounds good, too! I can eat some cheddar since it is in the 'fridge. Minsky's will have to wait until Sunday. Still want that pizza NOW, though.

Hey, buddy! I pray your chemo goes as smoothly as mine, if not moreso. Pills are much better than what I am getting, 3 bags of different stuff every 2 weeks and then a pump to take home for 46 hours that sends .1 ml every couple of minutes into me. They gave me a haz mat suit in case it spills or leaks! Screw that, I am calling 911 and the EPA if that stuff ever leaks out! Still with the pump, I get to go home and not lay around the hospital for 2 days watching that stuff slowly drip drip drip into me.

It's similar in some ways... the cyberknife-type systems can move in space and use the imaging generated to deliver the radiation. It's superior to older systems (gamma knife, etc.) where it would need to be programmed or positioning needed to be completed very precisely.
