I saw a number of people lose the fight with lung cancer. It is not pretty. I actually had a lengthy conversation about it with a doctor. He said, and I quote directly. "Lung cancer is a nasty business. This is why we doctors hate smoking!".

It is a cut throat form of cancer and it kills very fast. In fact while I was in hospital my mate John R. died of lung cancer, six weeks after diagnosis!

He was a great drum maker and made two snare drums for me for my student, Taso.

A great loss.

I recently lost a friend on another forum to lung cancer, and about the same span between diagnosis and death.

RIP, Buzzy.

But I met Peebothuhul today!

What a fine gent he is. He took me all the way to the hospital on the north side of the bridge and dropped me off. Then he waited and brought me home again!!!

And today I needed a hand. Very weak, underwent a bunch of tests and had many needles. All this took time. And he waited patiently. I am gobsmacked at his kindness. And very very grateful.

Three cheers for Peebothuhul!!! Smile

Of course I am talking while taking the pic. Confused

I think Yesterday inspired me somewhat. For the first time in ages I spent 2 1/2 hours practicing! Here's what I worked on.

Thanks mate. Although I think I am about done. Too tired to read Philly Joe's solos. I'll just work rudiments on the practice pad for a while. Smile

Sorry to hear this mate. Sad

We were better for having known him, y'know? Bittersweet, that's the word. I wasn't a close friend of his, but you could tell he had a good heart.
