Some of you may have already heard, but I have been recently diagnosed with stage four pancreatic cancer. I would like to thank everyone for their friendship and support over the years.

I'll ditto the sentiments on 2020. I had a severe heart attack in Feb.

On a more positive note, I was diagnosed stage 4 prostate cancer in 2015. I am still here. Just had my annual scans yesterday. We'll see where I am at. I'm still playing with grand babies and building models. Find the joy where ever you can. I actually found that the work stress and bs stopped bothering me much. It gave me new look at life. I love the looks of the grandbabies faces and their noises. The wife and I take the Grand National to car shows a couple of times a month (except this year, thanks Covid!). I am more relaxed and really enjoy the things that really matter. I regularly tell folks between the scans, chemo and the radiation, I now glow in the dark, Now if I could just figure out a way to glow in the dark for the grand babies......

Also, my dad's mother in law was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer a number of years ago. She lived about 10 yrs with it. So all is not lost.

There are advancements in treatments all the time. The second chemo pill I was on for 2 yrs was not even available when I was diagnosed in 2015. The IV treatments I got last fall were not even available in 2017. It is not fun going through them, but manageable. Radiation was actually uneventful for me. It does have a cumulative effect of making you tired but not unpleasant. Been through it twice now 43 and 35 sessions.

Feel free to pm me if you need to talk.
