Al, I can understand all the emotions- except the shame. It's not like you did something bad and got caught at it. What a $hitty thing to happen. I'd get out the race car and give 'er as long as I could and hope that they can do something to help a good guy, out. Tell your kids- they're your own flesh and blood and they love you, so please don't shut them out at a time like this. Hopes and prayers for you and yours.  :angelwings:

Alan, I an sadden to hear this diagnosis.  :faint:  Let's hope that it is a minor and something that can be taken care of simply.  I too would wait to tell the kids until the doctors have most of the test back and truly know what is happening with you, there is no reason to worry them quite yet.

You are a strong individual and stubborn, so I know you will fight this.

Stay strong my friend and know that you and Peggy are in our thought and prayers.  :angelwings:

Post by: Moparal on January 21, 2015 - 05:55:52 pm
Ken, thanks for that testimony.  I needed that.  And a big thanks to everyone.  Yes I am a fighter. My job tried to kill me many a times.  2 others that were working on my job just died in Oct and December.  Right now, as of today, I am just having bad headaches, vision problems, shaking, and bad memory loss. I keep feeling like im in the movie groundhog day.  I find my self going to do something , heading in that direction, then forgeting and start to head back, then remember what I was going to do, then too tired to do it.  My left side seems stronger than my right. Since I got Don's car up and going now, I decided to move things around in my shop and clean up some. I found out bending over is a big no no. It makes me hear my heart beat in the side of my neck and ear.  And when I moved my 500 lb bench, my left side seemed to move it ok, but my right side took more energy.  I just decided to sit down and rest, since my chest hurts a bit.

I was scheduled for more scans and tests today, but the dam doc that does them got the flu. So I got mad and just decided I would do what I wanted to today.   Peggy drives me where I need to go right now, as I catch myself getting confused and wobbly.  But guys, Im ok, I can still keep up with most. I kinda still feel ok, just gotta kick this headache is all    ALAN\

Hang in there.   The approach my wife used when I went through cancer testing and eventual surgery was this:  it's not bad news until we know it's bad news.   This approach was particularly important when waiting between a test and getting the results - it's too easy to drive yourself crazy trying to guess about the oucome.  Getting additional medical opinions can also help.   The first doc I went to for a surgical opinion thought there was a good chance I wouldn't live through the procedure.   Doc #2 took a different approach which worked out fine.

I buried my dad with my own 2 hands. He died in my home dec 2010, he had brain cancer. My favorite uncle died of brain cancer. But I am going to fight this, im sure it is benign and pushing around 500 lbs of dead weight really isnt all that much for me. Most know that about me.  My motto on my old buisness cards said   The impossible in a day, Miracles sometimes take longer

You have had many difficult days in your life as you have shared many with us all here on the forum.
Those days have made you tougher and stronger and with all the support from your friends here and your family there you will beat anything thrown at you.
I don't know you from a hill of beans but from all the adversity you have gone threw with your job/tornadoes/family you are "Superman"

You will most definitely be in my prayers for a positive report.
Take care.

I think we all have lost friends and family to cancer, but I know many more who have survived it. The tools to fight it are getting better all the time, but you are a fighter and every doctor will tell you that refusing to let it beat you is the best tool you can use.

There are no troops around here for me. I go solo. Once in a while the bullet99  (Wade) comes around, sometimes Don when he is the states, but for the most part, I'm all by my lonesome. Wife is after me tonight to let her take me to the... I may just go. I think I will admit defeat.  Hard to put up with all this till the 27th.  Im trying to get my courage up.  90 days ago I walked 10 miles everyday 5 before work and 5 after work and was doing 12 hrs a day 7 days a week.  The last couple of days I go 30 minutes and have to stop for a few, then take off again. Easy stuff to.  You see, if I go in and they will prob keep me there, then wife is alone.

   I had 3 mini strokes in one day, then a day and a half later I had a major one. My problem was blood clots in the brain, but if I'm understanding this correctly here...Your's is caused by a tumor. If so, get it removed! You don't want a major stroke. Trust me, you won't be the same afterwards.

Ok, well I went to er last night. Just wanted to see how fast I could spend 3600 bucks.  Took about 4 hrs was all lol.  Glad I got good insurance. 90% was paid by Blue cross.  Seems like they said I have a mixture of events causing this episode going on in me, But good news, they are benine however iys spelled.  Blood seems to be puddling around one of them and pressure on the other one.  I will get them cut out. 3 or 4 tesys being done on monday for some kind of blockage somewhere to. Sorry but I can't remember the med terms they were saying they are checking me for.  Rested ALL friggin day today (Peggy would beg to Differ) I stayed inside . And worked on my balance and tried to focus more for memory sake.  I believe they are getting a handle on this,
 I am looking forward to 3 show coming up.  One in New Orleans, Mopars at the battleship in Mobile and of course Carlisle.  I am still on permanent dissability tho, so I don't have a job anymore. That in itself, put me in shock.  I really loved my job.  I will be glad when I start getting my disabilty checks from my insurane. Been waiting since Nov.  Not from SSi but from my company insurance. It definatly pays more. But anyways, I plan on hanging around the site more.   Wow 3am and I am not tired.  Gonna read a few posts and see how it goes from there.     Thanks for the best wishes and concern. It really boosts me up    ALAN

Post by: Gumby on January 25, 2015 - 11:21:07 pm
Al, I don't know you - but know of you. You have answered questions of mine. My father had a brain tumor. Dr's removed it, but the cancer spread throughout his body and claimed him. He suffered stability and perception problems, also. The brain surgery was a success. Unfortunately, it had progressed into other areas of his body.
PLEASE be upfront with your loved ones. This is NOTHING TO BE ASHAMED about.
My father lived for a year after his first diagnosis, and crammed 10 years of living into that time. He went to as many of my nephews football games, wrestling matches, and hung out with friends and did as much as possible with friends and family. It wasn't easy with him being on chemo.
It is not a time to retreat. It is a time to embrace.
You will find more people pulling for you than you ever knew.
It is NOT a death sentence. You are a strong man. Only the strong survive!
I bought a T-shirt for my dad that said "Big Bad Bob" on it! lol. As a gesture of support. He was buried wearing it, for all the world to see.
But it is completley NOT fair for you to keep your family out of the loop.
They can offer you more support than you could ever imagine.
I would have felt cheated somehow if my dad had kept his condition secret. It allowed me more time with him. There is NO shame in cancer.
Take care, and heal quickly. We are ALL pulling for you!
Your family deserves special consideration. Please don't let them out of the loop. My thoughts and prayers go out to you, and your family.

Post by: DMZ73 on January 26, 2015 - 12:02:21 pm
Al,

I hope you can sit down with your family and discuss your health. Nothing to be embarrassed about, nor ashamed.
Everyone of us goes through tough times, and we all have to make adjustments.
I'm glad the tumor is benign. That in itself makes you a lucky man.
There are plenty of doctors out there that are talented and capable enough to remove the tumor and get you healed up.
Hope to hear positive updates from you soon.
Until then, rest, and you will be in my thoughts and prayers.

It's great to here from you Al. Our son had a serious accident about six years ago. He went over four years without a licence. When he got it back it re-ignited his life. Hopefully the same happens for you. He had to get used to the 'new normal', I'm sure you will do the same.

Hi Alan,  :wave:

Glad to hear that you are on the mend..somewhat. You have been on my mind A LOT lately, as we have not seen you on here posting much.  Remember, this isn't just a web board about our cars...but a Family, built up of like minded enthusiasts, so you don't only have to post about cars, you can share your fears, hopes, wife stories, or just open up about life in general.

Miss you a lot buddy.  :swaying:

Stay healthy Al.
They say men are reluctant to visit the doctor.
We try to diagnose our car issues more than our health.
Everyone should go for a physical once a year.
Blood pressure and cholesterol checked.
I had to get a CDL physical every year to drive 18 wheeler.
As I got older blood pressure went up later cholesterol.
Medication keeps it low......
Just turned 75 Sept 2.   :22yikes: Think positive.
Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Guys n Girls.   Just 1 more day and I will be free to travel again. I also had a new 5.9 cummins engine built for my 2003.5 quad cab dually. I hope to pick it up tomorrow.  I am not a traitor either. But I did buy a 72 road runner and I also bought a 68 road runner today. It had a paint code of QQ1 which kinda looks like B5 blue. Black interior and no options, post car, but an am radio. The 72 is red with black interior.  The white cuda I listed forsale here a few years ago is now B5 blue. It was originally petty blue from birth.  And Ken?  I bought a 72 demon. I built the car in 1985 for NHRA bracket racing. It has sat all these years and only had maybe 1 mile on it, then parked. Wade on here bought the 340, but since then I have bought a 71 340 and a 360 state trooper drive train. So I am an A body guy to. But not a fastback barracuda street hemi running nines like yours. HAHA .  I still have a lot of toys, but 3 hrs of work shuts me down for a few days now aday.

When I got back on yesterday, I had over 300 unread posts, so I will be reading a bit, trying to catch up on the site.  My memory still has a hard time after 1 stroke and 3 mini strokes, So I am slow to read and type. I also fractured my arm, wrist, and back, working in Quebec last year, so I can't walk as good as I would like. But I have many stories, many mopar stories, and some tech advice to share.  I am working on CudaGuys car again and installing Caltrac, new fuel system, and oil pan.  Work is slow, but progressing. Don's car is a screamer as it was.  Now it should hook, and have a good fuel supply that was needed.  At first, He wanted a dana I built with 373 gears and 1 inch spring location. Now he has asked me to move them in 1/2 inch more. Then change out his dash to. So I have lots to do, and nothing but time.   Thanks for bending an ear....ALAN

Our prayers as always, will be thinking of you
I know these aren't Mopars but maybe they will make a smile come out
The Black Camaro is the car Bruce Kimmen  broke into the 6 seconds street car and now my boss is gonna do some updating on it and put a procharged Big Block with a lenco setup in it.

Hey Alan.  Just read the thread....lots of ups and downs I see.  But you are on the up side now and we all hope you continue to improve.   Age gets to all of us in different ways.  I sure can't do what I used todo but at 64 ,I guess you are supposed to slow down a bit.  TAke care, be careful and follow the Drs orders.  Prayers , Dave.and Linda.
