    Many here will recall I went through chemo last summer for colon cancer and that I came out of it "clean" in November. As many know, cancer may go away or take a vacation, but many times it comes back. Mine came back in May and I've been undergoing a variety of tests since then. On the plus side, the cancer is "Like a few grains of sand on a beach", according to my Dr. Since May, I've felt fine and have been shooting, went to the Grand, and have been living what most might call a normal life.

    Beginning Monday I'll be starting a new round of chemo to get rid of these pesky grains of sand. I don't know how the side effects will affect me, but I hope and pray I can continue to be active here. I welcome prayers from any of you here.

    All the best, Gene. Thanks you for posting that wonderful picture of your wife, your congressman, yourself, and Mitt Romney. I'll bet that was a very special moment. Please try to post on a regular basis. Keep us informed!

    Hang in there, you already came out the winner the 1st time and you WILL do it again. It's not an easy thing to go through, I've not been through it myself but did have a pretty rough 1&1\2 years when my wife of 50 years had chemo, she is now in remission for the past 1&1\2 yrs we go back to MD Anderson in Houston every 6 months for her check-ups. Those prayers do HELP, will say an extra special one for you tonight. Ross Puls
