Wish I could help you in some way. I hope you're going to get better soon.  Is it going to be winter or summer in your hemisphere?

I've been riding a lot, have been drowned a few times in the rain.  Just like ripping up the asphalt on two wheels again.  About the only enjoyment left in life.

Keep us informed of your progress ok??

Two year CT Scan today, well an hour ago.  Friday see the chemo doctor that is leaving me ;(, for a different hospital.  Damn, she was awesome to work with.  Anyway, that is all for now.  After I pee away some of this contrast fluid they made me drink this am twice, I'm going to go out in the rain later.  Its been dim outside all week.  If I take the car, nothing, if I take the bike, then I get caught in a downpour 5 miles from home ;p  Haha, a couple of times this month I've come home and just stripped down for the washing machine.

Next time I'll take shampoo with me for me ;D  Cheers mates. Love everybody and cross your fingers for a good CT reading.

Hi Rich, 

Hope your CT scan come out with only positive results and a good visit with your doc. Sorry she is moving on but hope you do not need more chemo so will not be an issue.

On this new forum they do not have bookmarks, at least have not found the heading, so I have it  in my bar across top of laptop, outside of the forum, but goes right to you.

Take care.......... sue

Thanks sweetie ;D  Just about all browsers use CTRL+ D to bookmark anywhere on the interweb, that was what I meant.  This site is pretty basic for a site in the 21st century ;p

Be well

Rich, 

Before they changed things on the right used to be able to hit the little down arrow to get bookmarks - I can not find that anymore so did it my own way.

Hope for 2 good reports.

Happy biking.......sue

So pleased your two year scan came back good.You have certainly earned it.

and you probably do.Hows Linda now any change?

As for me I try to remain positive even though some around me seen somewhat negative.Like all of us I get good days and bad days and aim to do something for me every day.There is no cure other than what we can do for ourselves and positivity is moving forward.

Hi Mary I so agree with your words.Keep on fighting is the only way to go if Iwant to ride my broomstick again.The meds are not helping me in one way but good in another.

So good to see you around on your forever quit,I know there are still times where the demon tempts you but the best way is to NOPE and learn to accept you may never every smoke agai.

Well my CT had a mixed bag of results.  I don't have lung cancer 'atm', they did find that I now have Crohn's <sp> disease. Further tests and another specialist next month to confirm and start treatment. I was sorely hoping to call it a day on medical tests, doctors, and waiting, sigh ;(

I hope you're better at whatever has afflicted you. You don't deserve it either.  Linda is a full-time job now and she resents that. I also think she is getting Alzheimer's, early onset anyways.  She forgot almost every detail of her last doctor visit and her temper and sleeplessness are getting worse by the day.

Glad I have the bike for errands ;D

Rich   Get better Triff!
