Yeah I will try. I am thinking of doing all the tourist type things in Sydney. I have already done the Bridge Climb, which was fun years ago. Great view from up there.

The problem now is weakness. It is a sparkling sunny but cold day today, and I am not going anywhere. Too weak. The trip to and from the hospital wiped me out.

I hope this new drug pans out. If not at least I helped science. It is my only chance.

I even had the death talk with my doctor. We spoke about pain and how I'd be. I think I will be ok, but sad about my niece and nephew and my brother, who will take it hard. But I am at least 51. I have seen plenty of sicker and younger people. And at least my life has been interesting. Unlike many others.

A problem with this drug is that they do not normally give it to people as far gone as I. I was administered extremely heavy chemo over many months that forced the remission. But the remission lasted about 8 weeks. I almost died on more than one occasion. Now the drug company has me they are unable to give me the dosage they want. Two thirds less in fact. Giving me more makes me useless, I cannot speak read or write or take care of myself. Just yesterday I could not read.

Oh well. This is how I am really feeling today. Unconfident and weak. But I'll keep trying. Smile

You hang in there, brotha. For only having known you, in such an ephemeral way, for eight weeks, you've made a deep impression on me, and helped me gain better perspective on my painful but nonfatal malady. I reckon if you can do as you are, I'd ought to stfu with my own griping and press on.

One foot in front of the other, bud.

Thanks mate. I don't plan to give up. Some days are just hard. Plus today I am in a lot of pain. I have my heater on and have the internet. I may stream a movie or something. Smile

I am not very good company lately...but I am following you and hoping for the best result possible with your treatment. Thumbsup

Blush I'll be fine...a temporary slump. I have weathered worse.

You need to worry about you. Smile
