As most of you know, my wife had been diagnosed with Lung Cancer back in November. Iet wa also in the liver and lower spine. Wel, after 5 sessions of chemo shse became real sick and spend a week the Hospital, so she missed her last session. The doctor said no more Chemo. Her CAT scan was done last week, and we saw the Dr. this past Wednsesday. Except for a spot in her liver (which the chemo is still working on) she is clear. So, we see the Dr in 4 weeks and get one more CAT scan. Seems the Chemo did its job. She is not out of the woods yet but she is on the edge. She is getting her strength back so she an do more things tht she wantes to do. She is not cured (you are never cured with cancer) but she canstart living her life again. Thanksto all who expressed their hopes and prayers.

"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.

That is good news'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
holds forth the proposition that it is entirely

Police Officers put themselves at risk for strangers every day. Some do not make it home to their families. Next time you think of saying something negative about the police, remember...YOU are one of the strangers.

Well I guess it is time for an update. Her last Chemo was the latter part of Feb. However, she is susceptible to infections due to her immune system being looooow. She had to bouts of a kidney infection which resulted in 2 (full 7 days) sessions in the hospital; the last got her out on Sat, the 7th of Apr whereas she said we are going to the beach for a few days. So we went. Her last CAT scan in Feb showed no sign of the cancers, but another CAT scan in May will be definitive. If she is still in remission, it is just a matter of monitoring, etc. I have to watch her temperature. What is a bit high (100) for us is take to aspirin and go to bed for her is a 911 call for the wagon and to the ER for her. Like like dementia; she doesn't know anyone, where she is (if she talks), etc. As soon as t he fever drops under 100, she is fine again. Scary as hell. This will pass as the Chemo leaves her body and she gets her strength back. I can tell she is improving because her nagging and finding fault has stepped up.
Ya know, as Law Enforcement Officers we deal with a lot of shit over our career and make life and death decisions on a daily basis and go home. Dealing with a cancer patient is unlike anything I ever had to deal with while in the Army, in Vietnam and as a Police Officer. Life deals the cards and you have to play your hand the best you can. One thing, since she has been ill, I hadn't had a drink. Not that I did much of that, but even a beer may make it prohibitive for me to drive her to an ER, or whatever. So, thanks to you all that kept her in your prayers and please continue to do so. I am sure it helped. BTW, her hair is growing back.
