Guys you bring a lump to the throat of this old bootneck. Thank you all for you kind words and thought - rest assured that I have no intention of laying down to this. I've never back down from anything in my life and I'm certainly not starting now!

Chemo may be OK for some - I'm unlucky in that the first session has been an absolute bitch. Still, if it's making me feel this rough, just think what it's doing to the cancer. Almost got to feel sorry for it (believe that and you'll believe anything!!). Just starting to feel human again today - have to see if I can manage some solids.

Grace, u know I respect u, as I do Tony. but half of those things in the "cancer cannot" list - for the most part, simply are not true and sooner or later Tony probably will agree with me on this. all kinds of emotions will be felt, no matter how strong a person one thinks he/she is.
part of being truly supportive to a person with a serious illness such as this, is being a realist for your friend or loved one.
and for men, it seems, it is much harder to open up and discuss it. even when given the opportunity to do so, they may not. like when someone ask "how are u feeling" - for the person asking this, part of them wants to know and the other part doesn't, same for the cancer patient - part of him wants to tell them and the other part doesn't.
well meaning people try to be upbeat, and tend to treat the person like a child, without of course even realizing it. which means the person can never open up even if he really wants to. and which is the reason I told Tony (over at Els kitchen) to join a support group with people who truly understand what he is going thru.
u may think im being classless and too blunt with my post, but its the truth, and in the end, Tony may appreciate my honesty and find it helpful and comforting later on..
I sincerely hope so, my intention was to help, not hurt him.
Great post P,

And I know the person who left the poem
Meant VERY well, hear in the right place,
But I have to agree, sometimes, something that's meant
To cheer, may not!
For example > taking one line 'cancer cannot disturb peace'
Not correct, it can,
And, in saying so, I know first hand when I was told
I have a heart problem( on going)
It sure DID disturb my peace!
But .. after a while .. I got that peace back again ..lol somehow!
(The optimist in me. Lol)

As you very rightly say,
Tony WILL come to terms with it in HIS own way..

Great attitude Tony,
And more of that..
Takes you to say it so well..

Think of what it's doing to the cancer.

I don't know if I have that strength left in me

If I can do, so can you - Semper Fi for you - Per Mare, Per Terram for me. Remember, we don't lie down, we don't back down and we fight every inch of the way. You've got it in there Tally, you know you have. Sometimes we have to dig deep to find it, but it doesn't dissolve, it doesn't dilute, it doesn't dissipate - we still have the strength inside us.
