Thanks mate but I feel I am trying and failing today. I am just tired I think.

Pretty sure anyone would take strain. No shame in admitting that. I just like your positive attitude Smile ETA: And of course, being positive all the time is also wearing. Just be you, amigo, you're still here for now. Hug

Thanks mate. Much appreciated.

My brother, sister in law and niece just left. My niece was jumping all over me again. All of them jet lagged. I appreciate their effort. Little Grace played one of my frame drums. She was quite creative. Smile

The hospital finally rang. I have a meeting with my specialist tomorrow at 10.00 am. I gather options will be discussed. At least I have not been admitted and may get to attend Friday's rehearsal as mentioned earlier.

I'll be honest with you. I am feeling a bit low today. I can feel the disease in my body and it has made me very weak. This is what happens as the cancer cells take over within one's bone marrow and blood. Your body gets starved of oxygen and red and white cells. It makes it tough to move. For example, I want a cup of bonox, but the kitchen and kettle are ten feet away.

I will make that cup of bonox though. I just have to do my best and keep my spirits up.

I am gonna prove I can get to the kettle! Hang on.

5 minutes later. I did it! Big Grin

Another leading Australian drummer came over and stayed for about 90 minutes. That was nice. I had not seen him for a while.

My nephew texted me. He will come by tonight. I will be very pleased to see him.

I am wondering what my doctor will say tomorrow. It is hard not to. I am trying not to worry. I'll be honest, it is not easy. I am worried. Trying not to be...

Damn and blast it!

Sorry everyone. I must sound like a miserable bastard.

I've never had cancer, but I was diagnosed with avascular necrosis two years ago, in my hip. I hike for a living, even though I'm in pain every day even in bed. I know you know why -- it's because you can't stop living. I'm not gonna let the disease define me. And I don't think you will, either.

Take up steps to attack that infirmity. No matter what the doctor says tomorrow.

Thanks again. I will stay positive. I may even have another bonox! Big Grin

I will! I promise.

One thing I have learned is just how many people are sick. It makes it hard to feel sorry for oneself when so many others are suffering. We're all in this shit together, and nobody gets out alive.

I am thinking of you too my friend. Good luck to you.

Yours. Dale.

RE: I have survived toughest year. Still in danger, but still alive.
Thanks Darrell.

Well it is t minus 2 hours 15 minutes until I see my specialist. Like I said earlier, I hope I go into hospital after tomorrow night's rehearsal.

Ever since last Friday I have been having nice dinners. I guess it is in preparation for the hospital food that is coming. Smile

My wonderful nephew and I went out and had a Peruvian meal. It was very nice.

I had a nice Peruvian cocktail. I think it was called an iced chica.

And a pork stew. Although it was the strangest stew I ever saw! Tasted nice though. Smile

Any way, I am hoping the news is good and I have something positive to report back on this damned thread that began as a happy thing, and has now turned into, well, this.

Stew looks very tasty! Hoping that you report back to us tomorrow telling us that we have to put up with you for a long time. Big Grin

That looks delicious.

And, you are right, we are all in this together and none of us will get out alive.

Hope this next meeting goes well!
