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.

listen to your wife.  Wifes are Always right whenever things really matter.  I think her being alone is a bigger problem for you than it is for her.  Please talk to her about what you want, so she can speak for you when needed. Please make sure you stay boss and don`t have any doctor take over your life.

wish you all strenght and wisdom you need  :2thumbs:

listen to your better half...they are usually more intuitive to our health needs than we are.  they are also very capable of wearing our many hats when we have to hang it up for something like this.   you'll be OK.

   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

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.
