WOW!   Thanks for the update @sneakypete.  Glad the problem has finally been tracked down and the doctors attacking it.  Sounds like they have made a LOT of progress in treating that type of cancer recently and that's great to hear.

No kidding. A local elderly woman I swap books with was still getting chemo when I met her. She told me that when she was first diagnosed 5 years earlier she was told there was no cure for that form of cancer,but they would give her chemo and hope to extend her time. 

 In less than a month a breakthrough had been announced,and her local docs started that treatment. She had her cancer port taken out of her shoulder about 6 months ago after having been found cancer-free and cured.

@sneakypete, that's some really good "bad-news"!  Thank you for the update, and I'm glad you're already feeling better.

Nothing helps the chemo work its miracle like a fighting spirit and a sense of humor @sneakypete   You've an abundance of both!  And from the sound of it, some pretty damn good docs who are up-to-date on treatment modalities. (Always helpful   happy77 )

Praying for your continued recovery.  Please post another update when you can.  I'll see you around campus in the meantime.

I will post again when they tell me I am cured or terminal. Probably won't post again otherwise unless someone else is starting this process and has questions

@sneakypete Glad to hear they not only figured out what is going on with you, but that the prognosis is good.  Get well, my friend. Whether you like it or not, I'll keep you in my prayers. :tongue2:

You're tough, Pete, and have always be tough.  You'll kick its ass right down to the curb.

When you're better, we can talk about your posting style... :laugh:

Well, that ain't the best of news @sneakypete ... But it's good to know what you're fighting. And it's good to know you have a (surprisingly) good prognosis. Still a long row to hoe. Ain't fun getting drug through that particular knothole, I'd imagine.

Prayers up. We're pulling for ya.

 Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers that all goes well
I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them.

Making a post here so I can find this thread the next time you want it when you declare yourself free of cancer.
You could relent a little and tell us how you are doing after a few months of treatment. The thread would be easier for me to find and send to you.  You know we pray for you every day.

Hoping for a quick and painless resolution of your health issues, pete.
I have decided to officially and formally not apologize. I'm not sorry at all, even slightly.

    Indeed, I especially want to convey my absence of remorse to anyone who was offended by what I said. If you are the sort of person who gets twisted into knots when someone articulates a point of view that differs from your own, then you are exactly the sort of person who should never receive an apology for a differing point of view — if I were offering one, which, again, I'm not.

Prayers, for sure.
For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev
