« They Are Not "Beasts," Just Incompetent Cells | Main | Sometimes "Ah Phooey" Just Doesn't Work »

August 28, 2007


Dave, I loved reading Bart's e-mail. I am on day 8, 4th cycle of Sutent. When I read the post yesterday, I was feeling crummy. Already the side effects were starting to set in. But after reading his post I felt somewhat empowered. I know that sounds crazy, but imagery is very important when fighting anything, and when on Sutent I am not up to fighting a "beast". But, I can stand up to a few incompetent, stupid cells. So, I got up and drank the water I am suppose to drink and carried on. As always, the posts are a delight. Thanks

Well said Dave. Whatever it is called, in the long run the only thing that really matters is that each Warrior is able to muster up the fight needed to live a long, happy and productive life.
May God bless us all.

Spoken like a diplomat. Perhaps there is a political position for you in the next administration. Your deft touch set the record straight.

As I see it..."sticks and stones can break your bones but names (words) will never harm me!" No matter what you call it, it is a fight.
I've always thought that the pugilist thing was a good fit. Rounds, bells, knockouts and a few bloody noses.

Hope you are having a good day. Gotta go feed the clients.
