yes, that was the why of the question...man has some health issues he often speaks of....I do not recall ever having his phone number though one time he did call me when I sent him mine....guess I should have tried to record his number for just such occasion.

Guys,thanks for the concern.

 

I have been out of contact because I now have stage 4 lymphatic cancer,and between visiting every doctor and hospital in the western world and the confusion from the chemo and other drugs,my normal state these days is one of confusion and tired.

 

The good news is that I have lost 30+ lbs so far,and can now bend over again without blacking out. Which would be handy if I could remember why I was bending over.

 

Taking chemo twice a month for 6 months,and the doc says they can kill it. No guarantees,but they seem confident.

 

No big surprise since I was medievaced from VN in Dec of 69 with pus-filled sores all over my torso,and a permanent medical profile that got me removed from Special Forces and assigned to a non-SF and non-airborne assignment. I didn't like the regular army any more than the regular army liked me,so like a fool I got out and refused the medical discharge I was offered because I figured I would get better and be able to enlist again. I was wrong.

 

Anyhow,I now have occasional days when I feel pretty good,and that's about the best than can be said for it other than the fact everybody tells me they can cure me of it.. Looks like it's going to be a long 6 months,though. Being in my 70's probably doesn't help.

 

One Mopar question. I am having trouble getting in email contact with the Dodge Boys in Montana about a finned aluminum Edgy head I bought for a 251 Mopar flat 6. I received the 230 head I bought the same day a couple of months ago,but not the 251 head. Due to recent medical problems I mostly forgot about it and let it slip through the cracks. Now that I am a little better,I need to find out when/if I am ever going to receive the head.

 

Anyone else getting any responses from them?

I did chemo once a week for 37 weeks. My treatment was every Wednesday and every Friday after the treatment I spent the entire day in bed so I know what you are going through. Sorry you lost the medical discharge. I am 100% disabled due to agent orange so all of my treatments are paid for by the veterans administration. The good news is I feel much better now but I still go in for follow up exams every week.

Oh crap!  Hate hearing about members having Heath problems.  Best wishes for you and yours.  This stuff is hard on families too. 

 

I had a stent blow out back in October.  Doc said it was probably due to age of the implant.  Great got three more that are only three years younger.
