TUESDAY = GOOD, WHERE TO NOW...

I FOUND OUT YESTERDAY THAT THERE IS NOT A NEED TO CONTINUE RADIATION AS IT HAS CAUSED ME DIARRHEA AND PUT ME IN DISCOMFORT FOR A WEEK. SO WHEN THEY CONSIDERED WHAT I WAS GOING THROUGH THEY KNEW THE RADIATION WASN'T SHRINKING THE CANCER ENOUGH TO KEEP GOING. THAT'S WHY ITS BEEN DISCONTINUED. EVERYTHING ELSE SO FAR HAS THIS WEEK BEEN GREAT. THE SUPER BOWL IS COMING SUNDAY, UFC SATURDAY AND I HAVE VISITORS NONSTOP ALL WEEK. MY LOVING AUNTIE IS IN TOWN FROM WINONA STAYING WITH US, THEN OTHERS HAVE BEEN AND WILL BE IN AND OUT ALL WEEK. NOT TOO MUCH ACTION BUT JUST ENOUGH. TOMORROW THE STATE APPOINTS A PERSONAL CARE ATTENDANT TO ME, SHE'LL BE CALLED, "WANNA BE ANDY." SHE IS AN INTERN STILL A STUDENT. NOT THE EXPERIENCE LEVEL OF ANDY, BUT WHAT CAN YA DO. OH YA SO ON THURSDAY WE'LL KNOW MORE ABOUT WHAT'S NEXT FOR ME. JUST TO LET EVERYONE KNOW IF THIS CHEMO DOES NOT WORK OUT I AM OUT OF OPTIONS. THAT'S ALL. THIS TIME THEY DO NOT HAVE ANOTHER DOOR TO OPEN. SO LETS KEEP THE POSITIVE ENERGY FLOWING AND HAVE A GREAT NIGHT.

JJ -

You goof! So are you going to call the PCA "WBA"? I'll give you a call later today. By the way, have you ever read "A Walk in the Woods", by Billy Bryson? I have it on CD and could bring it out to you to listen to. It's pretty funny.

Remember the prayers after Life Trek where we imagined ourselves in different environments or experiences. Well I want you to picture those beautiful peaks of the Colorado Rockies, the crisp sent of pine in the air, a stetch of path ahead of you and the bright sun shining down from the crystal blue sky. You can feel the heat of the sun as it warms your skin. Every moment God is with you. He is in the scent of pine, the crystal blue sky, the beautiful peaks, the heat of the sun and the path ahead. Take some time today and relax in those thoughts.

The energy is flowing your way.

Love you -

GOOD MORNING JUSTIN,

WOW, YOUR BLOG IS FILLED WITH INFORMATION.

JIMMY V'S SPEECH IS ONE OF THE MOST INSPIRATIONAL MESSAGES EVER DELIVERED. REMEMBER, THE PRODUCERS WERE TRYING TO TELL JIMMY TO 'HURRY UP' BECAUSE HE WAS TAKING TOO MUCH AND HE BASICALLY TOLD THEM TO FORGET IT. I WANT PEOPLE TO BE TELLING YOU FOR MANY YEARS THAT YOU ARE TAKING 'TOO MUCH TIME......' AND, I WANT YOU TO TELL US TO FORGET IT, YOU'LL TAKE ALL THE TIME YOU WISH.

J, EVERY MOMENT OF EVERY DAY I'M SENDING POSITIVE THOUGHTS IN AN EASTERLY DIRECTION. WE'VE TALKED ABOUT THIS MANY TIMES, YOU WILL GET A PITCH YOU CAN HIT OUT OF THE PARK.

I LOVE YOU,

UNCLE RICK

Hey Kuke.
Was looking forward to seeing you last night, but totally understand. Hopefully we can get together in the next week or so! I am praying for you. It's so great to see how many loving people you have in your corner. You're not in this fight alone. I call I get to be the metaphorical water bottle guy. And since Tricia is usually there with me, she can metaphorically hold the bucket that you spit into. I'm sure she'd be honored. Jab, jab, move.

Love,
Eric
