Some of you might remember back in May I took a fall and banged up my fight shoulder. There was more to the story that I didn't tell you because I wasn't sure where it was going at the time. Now we know so here it is.
During the CT scan to look at my shoulder they noticed spots on my liver, that started the search. With out all the details they found the source of the problem which is a growth in my Colon that had started to spread, the good news so far it's only too the liver. So as the nurse in the ER said the fall that injured my shoulder was a Blessing in that we found this thing in it's fairly early stage.
So Tomorrow, I start my Chemotherapy treatment. I've had the chemo port install in my chest, the treatment consists of a three med cocktail that is administered through the port in my chest over a 46 hour period. Good part is I don't have stay in the hospital, they hook a bag with the meds in it up to the port and send me home, I come back in two days and they remove the bag, and I free for two weeks and we repeat the process every two weeks for the next 6 months. And hopefully the stuff goes into remission.
So now you Know.

You can knock the #%$* out of this thing Ron (ny). Tell our Betty to make sure she keeps you on that leash so all goes well.

Great catch Ron. It is amazing how often something bad actually turns out good. I hope your treatments aren't too bad and they do the job. Prayers sent.

Stay strong, Ron. 15 years ago my wife was diagnosed with early-stage leukemia and went through the chemo treatments. She is still in remission today and doing fine. Keep the faith.
