RE: I have survived toughest year. Still in danger, but still alive.
Thanks a lot. As I said later in the thread, I watched a Christian become convinced he would meet Jesus and then let go. He was in better shape than me!

When last I was here an aggressive cancer had taken control of me and I could barely think straight and ended up spending many many months in hospital.

It was thought I would not survive and I was placed on the most dangerous chemo regimen a human could take. I came very close to death on a few occasions but refused to let go. In part I believe because I am an atheist. Seeing as I don't look forward to an after life, I refused to let go of this one.

I am home now. I still have 18 months of chemo to go. The doctors are amazed I am still alive and always congradulate me, but caution me to remain vigilant.

Very kind members have left messages of support I have yet to respond to. I will respond tomorrow after I sleep.

Thank you for the support in the past. Cancer had affected my brain and often I was barely rational. I appreciate the patience you showed.

Rest easy, welcome back.

I love this sentence..."Seeing as I don't look forward to an after life, I refused to let go of this one." very empowering.

You've never been far from my thoughts. Smile

Heart

You have always been kind and patient towards me. When I was sick in the beginning and nobody knew what the problem was, when I made some bizzare posts, still you supported me, realizing there was something very wrong.

I too thought of you and hoped I would survive to thank you. One of many reasons I used to hang on.

Words cannot convey my feelings. I would need the eloquence of Shakespeare to even get close. All I have is this. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

With love and respect. Dale.

I figured you went walkabout. It's so wonderful to see you again.

To life! Thumbsup

We figured you was just on walkabout, brother. Didn't realize you was taking the black diamond trail though. Glad to see you back brother. Banjo yet lives!

Hi GirlyMan.
Even though I did not do much walking about I did manage to lose weight. Something I had found difficult. So there was à positive outcome. Smile

I always enjoyed your posts and am pleased I will be able to read more.

Many thanks. Smile

This is a good day! I have wondered many times how and where you were. So glad that you are back here with us! I hate what you have gone through and continue to go through but am glad to hear from you again.

Just seeing your name back on the forum makes me smile. Smile

This observation is very eye opening, I had never thought about it like that before.

Anjele your kindness is touching and greatly appreciated. At this point in my life kindnesses have become more meaningful. I'll take all the inspiration I can get and put it to good use. Smile

It was an eye opening experience being on the ward. I feel it made me a little wiser. I hope it did at least. I need all the wisdom I can get. Smile

Welcome back. Long hospital stays are tough. I did nine weeks once - eight months is epic.
