Default Amazing life

Well, I just clocked over another year yesterday and my monthly visit to the cancer doc. He is amazed at how good I look with my blood counts and all. He said he really didn't think 3 months ago that I would still be alive now. I guess I wasn't sure either. I get blood products at least one a week and at some point will become immune and stop getting a bump from the platelets. So it's been the most amazing year ever for me and it looks like at least another month or two before I wind this deal up and head for the house.

That's awesome news, it's amazing what a positive attitude and deep desire to keep on keeping on will do.

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

Good for you wb.
My mantra has become "Keep on keeping on."
My health care team and I have been together now for 20 years so we all know each other pretty well. At one of our quarterly appointments one of my Drs made the comment that he didn't really think that I would have lasted this long given all the damage to my heart and vascular system.
He just kind of blurted it out but as soon as he said it , you could see by the look on his face that he was embarrassed. I just laughed and told him not to worry. That my plan was to outlast him......
I complete another trip around the sun my self next week.
Stay strong my brother.

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.

That's fantastic news! Way to go! I'm with the rest of em. Keep building. Keep on keeping on. I just clocked the 3rd birthday last week since the doctors pretty much told me to go home and die. I'm pretty sure it's because I'm just staying busy...

Good to hear! I believe staying positive is the way to be. I'm sure its hard, but I have seen it work in my family. Keep busy and over out on the road as much as possible!
