Full Circle.
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.


Hi Chaz.
Yeah it was a long time. One weekend they let me out. The first day I comically passed out in front of an ambulance. They took me back to hospital. Later that day the let me out!

The next day I collapsed again and was rushed back in another ambulance. After that they would not let me out again.

I even got used to the food!!! Smile

Thanks so much.

Me too. I came so close....

There were a number of positive outcomes. My brother and I have become closer than ever. My love for humanity was bolstered by the inspirational example of the medical professionals who cared for me. I realised how deep the respect for me is within the drumming community, who visited me week after week..

My body is weak, my drumming has suffered, my muscles attrophied etc. However I am alive and very happy. The chemo has strange side effects. One of which is enhanced emotions. I get teary for no real reason. Weird.

Happy to be amongst such fine people both in those around me and those of you here with me now. I am moved to have had so many kind thoughts offered to me and also à birthday thread. After 8 months lying in a hospital bed, it is hard to describe how you have made me feel. I feel warm, cared for, grateful, happy. So many things. And now the screen is misty.

People can be truly wonderful. As has been displayed here.

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

Welcome back, BrotherMan. Let us linger and loiter together for a bit longer.

Pleasant surprise isn't a good enough description for how I felt upon seeing your message! More like ecstatic shock! It's great to hear from you. Keep fighting on! Hug

Thank you Colourcraze!

I learned I was given a 2% chance of survival. I was at the hospital earlier and they told me I am one of the most resilient patients. My bloods were all good today and I feel pretty lucky. Smile

Wow, that's amazing!!! A friend of mine actually beat leukemia himself when he was a teenager. Surviving cancer is no joke. Congratulations!!!

Thanks Crimson.
Chemotherapy has weird effects. Today I am very emotional. I have no real control over it. Weird.

RE: I have survived toughest year. Still in danger, but still alive.
24 years ago I was given two years. Are we just too stubborn to give in? Here's the kicker, sadly, the doctor who made the prediction passed away two years ago and he was 10 yrs younger than me.
