I have gotten thru all my problems now except the chemo & radiation to take out cells I need to be
rid of. The chemo is low dose used with the radiation to make the radiation work better. The actual
radiation time is 1-3 minutes each session. There will be 5 sessions per week for 5 weeks. After they
get rid of all the bad cells, I will be scanned once a year. After 5 years if I don't have anything show
up I will be considered to be cancer free. After they get done with the radiation maybe then I can get
to fixing up my JBI & my MF14.
Thanks to all for your prayers & kind words.

Big John

Good news Big John. That's the same number of treatments my wife had and she's been cancer free since 1998. We'll still keep you in our prayers.

Good to hear!

My wife had radiation with chemo once/week for her cancer, then another round of chemo later. That's been 8 years ago, mines been nearly 10 years.

Hang in there! ~~ Lowell
