I was immersed in the world of cancer. I was at the sloan Kettering in NYC . ALL they do is cancer.
They did a triple chemo regimen that forced me in the hospital for weeks at a time, with arm infections and blood clots. The chemo side effects were real bad. But the docs were aggressive, they were in the hunt for my cancer cells, so they brought to the brink a few times.
Since it was in my neck throat area I still can't swallow so good. I am one of the lucky one's many can never ever swallow again, the radition blasts the whole area. For the moment the docs say I am cancer free, They will retest every 3 months. After 5 years I can say the word remission. Until then I hold my 2 kids very near me. 8 and 6 yrs old and they love anything apple. My son tommy whines about the dells in school being so slow. He is playing halo right now. We watch the APPLE TV ads all the time . All 3 yrs worth.
I am very lucky so many kind souls at that hospital were so much worse off than me. And the children never ever cried. Never ever! When I was getting 6 weeks of daily radition we had 3 kids coming in at the same time. The children were like bald rag dolls. So weak. SO fragile. Yet I could always engage them, NO THATS NOT TRUE I WAS at the end of my radition chemo treatment's and very near insane, It was the children who engaged me. They remembered my name when I was dribbling from the mouth. They laughed and joked with me and my sons . They were 100x more brave than me and 2 of the 3 sadly passed.
I never wanted to recount this here. But if ONE person quits smoking from this story then fine . I smoked for 35 yrs pot and ciggie;s. I was the cool Marlboro man. In truth smoking is more addictive than heroin. If you smoke please stop. I beg you. Please quit.
You are welcome to pm me or consult a doctor about quitting.
Now I will turn my prays to Steve Jobs and his extended family .
Get well soon dude .
