Just when you think life's cruising along at a steady rate of knots s#"t happens just been diagnosed with the big C so once the chemo starts posts may be a bit more tangential than usual, all the guys and girls at work have gone into warp speed to get loads of building bits together for the R and R .Let battle commence. Cheers Marky
Never give in Marky, was told I had the big C, Feb 2016, had the tumour removed and a bit of radio therapy and all clear at the moment, 👍 building and sailing take the pain away, think positive and you will win, I am sure. My sincere best wishes for you,😊 Peter
Can only second that Rooky👍 Mark; in 1994 it was discovered (almost by accident - you know what it's like when you're looking for something else😉) that I had a brain tumour, 😲 benign - BUT... I decided not to let it bother me or waste time brooding about it and got on with life. Positive thinking DOES help believe me! To cut a longer story sideways, at the last check up last year it weren't there no more 😊 IT CAN BE BEATEN and attitude really does help. I'm the living proof, 24 years later and still sticking my nose in (almost) everywhere😁 Thinking of you, all the best, Doug 😎 PS I trust the guys n gals got loads n loads of 'bits' together to keep you occupied, look forward to reading what you do with 'em 👍
Young at heart - slightly older in other places 😉 Cheers Doug Grant me the Serenity to accept things I can't change, - the Courage to change things that I can, and the Wisdom to know the difference!
My nephew of 5 year at the time, was diagnosed with the big C in his brain back in 2015, and it brought the family in close, we all joined some family time in Houston and would not trade those 10 days for any thing 😎
I'm also the proud and humble owner of a Armindale Patrol ship build by a nice chap in Helsigør Denmark. This was handed over to me when he had to attend to his last sea trip due to the big C 😭 and I'll treasure this model to the end of ...
Keep the thoughts bright and clear, and remember to appreciate the good times with all those you enjoyed the good times with 😎 and don't forget to tell them that 👍 Many people do win the fight 👍
Have as much fun as you can. When I went in for radiation treatment I used to wear a Spiderman hoodie and complain afterwards when I couldn't shoot spider webs. When all of the hair disappeared and it came up to Australia Day, I stuck a temporary Australian flag tattoo on the big shiny bit above my forehead. All of the kids loved it when I went in for treatment. In remission now and still having fun. Don't give up.
Dont have any hair to lose the wind blew the wrong way about 40years ago ,thought i might ask for a NHS syrup (wig) or two just to confuse everyone ,good lady is standing by with the eyebrow pencil I'm seeing visions of looking like a clown or more like a clown than usual. Cheers Marky
