  1. Thank you. You’re not the first person to tell me I’m strong. I had a very good role model to emulate in my wife as she went through her medical issues. I don’t necessarily feel strong, I just see it as not having a choice but to do what I have to do. Happy ❤️ Valentine’s Day to you as well. Praying for all of us!!!
  2. Well mixed bag. Blood work and the scans were good. She was very pleased with the results. 💪🏻💪🏻 However, I’m still having an issue with elevated protein levels (protein wasting) in my urine. My nurse practitioner took me off the oral chemo pill temporarily while she, the oncologist (was supposed to see him today but he was at a conference) and the nephrologist can consult and devise a plan of action. They are supposed to get back to me Tuesday or Wednesday. 🤞🏻🙏🏻 I try not to complain because overall I’m doing well and generally feel good but it’s mentally exhausting. I feel like a hamster on a wheel. 🤦🏼‍♂️🤷🏼‍♂️ Thank you all for the continued thoughts, prayers and positive vibes. I truly appreciate it. ❤️☺️
  3. Drs visit and treatment today. Get the results of my latest scans. 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻
  4. Awesome!!!! Ashamed to admit I saw them play the NY/NJ Knights in the Meadowlands. 🤦🏼‍♂️😂🤣😂
  5. Google the old World League of American Football Orlando Thunder uniforms. Similar shade of unnatural green.
  6. I’m 9 immunotherapy infusions into my treatment and things seem to going ok. All my blood work has looked good. I’m tolerating the infusions very well. In fact, if they are scheduled early enough in the day I go to work after. Had elevated protein levels in my urine in December. A concerning development for somebody with only one kidney. They suspected it was a function of the oral chemo pills I was taking. Called it protein wasting. The doctor took me off my daily oral chemo pill and retested my urine 3 weeks later. Protein levels were still elevated but dropped to about half the previous result. They restarted my daily oral chemo pill at a lower dose. Interesting effect when I came of the chemo med. I gained about 10-12 pounds in the space of those 3 weeks, although it was around the holidays. Within about 2 weeks of restarting the chemo meds, I lost that same weight. Not a weight loss plan I’d recommend. I go for blood work, chest CT scan and abdomen/pelvis MRI’s on the 11th in preparation of my next treatment on the 14th. Overall I generally feel pretty good. Maybe a little more tired than usual. I’m tolerating the combo therapy very well. They LPN that works for my Oncologist is pleased with how well I’m doing, which was encouraging to hear.
  7. Thanks. Going alright. I’ll update my thread.
  8. Cancer sucks. Going through treatment for this insipid disease myself. Thoughts and prayers for all that are going through it, have gone through it, will go through it or have had a loved one affected by it. #️⃣S⬆️2C
  9. There is an “or” in there. Can’t decide which I’d rather do.
  10. Florida for fishing - inshore/flats for tarpon/snook/bonefish & permit; offshore for marlin/sailfish; freshwater for largemouth. Hawaii - more fishing and Island hopping. Wyoming - Yellowstone and Grand Teton; or Utah -National Parks
  11. Lived in the Philadelphia market my entire life so I do follow the Eagles and Phillies but they aren’t my favorite teams. I became a Red Sox fan because of Carlton Fisk. I was a catcher in Little League and he was my favorite player. I never changed my Sox when Fisk changed his. In football I’m a Miami Dolphins fan, but I’m sure how I landed on them. I assume it’s because the Eagles stunk and the Dolphins were very good back when I was an impressionable youngster in the early 70’s. It’s the Flyers and Sixers in hockey and basketball. Just a casual hockey fan and don’t pay much attention to BBall.
  12. I could probably name most of the late 70’s Pirates. At least the significant players. They were “my team” in our wiffle ball games. Lol
  13. Oh him! Lol. I looked it up after I posted and was like, Doh!
  14. I know 75% of the infield off the top of my head (I think): Ken Oberkfell 3b Ozzie Smith SS Tommy Herr 2b Cant recall the first baseman.
