Just chanced across your blog and read your comments on drug side effects - I have a very advanced lymphoma and chose to avoid chemo to date - there is some debate on the wisdom of that decision, but I just thought I would pass on to you the knowledge of a clinic I recently attended in the Bahamas - In three years of looking for effective treatment, this is the first place that I actually got to meet long term survivors. It just seems to make sense to put some good stuff in to rebulid the immune system - dont know if relevant to you, but just wanted you to have the info

Been thinkin lot's bout ya'll since Thanksgiving. Hope your party was a smash last night. If you get a chance to do lunch, please give me a call. I'd love to hear more stories about your folks (or whatever). Ya'll take care of each other and know we're thinking of you.

I just stumbled upon this searching for your picture on a cover of a magazine (the name of which eludes me) my mom was telling me about a couple days ago and found your blog, so being nosy, I couldn't help but read. We all missed you at Thanksgiving but theres a lifetime of Thanksgivings left. Hope all is well at the party Uncle David.

I have no doubt you'll be the life of the party, whether you're sitting on your reclining throne or not. Have a good time; you deserve it.

Enjoy your evening David and draw strength from those who think the world of you and Sherry. Those people are who we call "friends".
