    Goin on four and a half months since I updated this.

    As of now, I'm in remission. One of the reasons this took so long to finally update is because I've been waiting a PET scan which got delayed a couple of times and then seeing my doc. The six month thing plays in a bit too.

    For now, there is no sign of cancer. However, with this type of cancer, that's no guarantee it's gone. For the next eighteen months I"ll get CAT and/or PET scans to see if I'm still clear of if it comes back. At the two year point we go to yearly visits and then wait and see. At this point, that's as good as it gets.

    I haven't updated this in part because to continue to do so would necessitate opening up more of me, how I think and what I feel, than I may be willing to do. Plus, I wonder what can I really say that hasn't been said? What can I really do that hasn't been done? And the biggest of all, why would anyone care?

    There's nothing special about me. I don't say that in a self-deprecating way hoping to have people think 'sure there is, you're blah blah blah'. I had a pretty easy time with the chemo compared to many. I had great support and I'm stubborn. Not a single unordinary thing. Nothing special.

    I've also been busy. I will be keeping my little rodent factory going. In this economy it's surviving, wanting to grow a little even, so I'm going to stay with it. I've got other irons in the fire too which are also taking some time. I've been doing some writing and may do something with that when it's finished.

    I've started this several times, but, like I said, I just don't know which way I'm going to go with it, and try though I might, the decision still hasn't been made.

    Mostly though, I just wanted to let you guys know that all those prayers and good vibes worked. Thanks

    Although it's a long road ahead, I want to say I'm glad you're in remission, even if you are just "blah blah blah" I wish you luck in your future with all this.

    Awww Wes...you're blah blah blah, and this and that and some of the other, too.

    Hope you never stop writing...this, that, or the other thing, so long as you don't quit.
