I won't belabor the point; over the last 2 1/2 weeks, undergoing a phalanx of testing, I have been given so much MJ juice that I have come to appreciate why he liked it so much! Mine of course was in hospital, hooked up every which way to wires and whatever, and an anesthesiologist in attendance! Fast forward: today was my first day of chemotherapy. It is a course of treatment expected to run for 6 months. I get 5 hours in the chair at the hospital every other monday, and come home and get hooked to a fanny pack pump which runs 48 hours. I will be less active on the forum, but as long as I can get to the keyboard, I will try to stay in touch!!! Wish me well.
