    Well guys and gals.. I got my review by the Doctors at MD Anderson.. My toumors are shrinking.. according to my CT scans..and the Doctors are sending me HOME.... back to New Orleans... after my next Chemo which is on Saturday.. but last 3 days... Monday I return the 48 hour pump... and we're thinking Tuesday.. I'll drive back to New Orleans.. I'm walking pretty good when my legs are not to swollen... and I'm counting on a uneventful trip.. 5.5 hour drive if all goes well.. New Orleans to Houston...

    I'd like to thank all of you for your thoughts and prayers.. and your cards letters and trinkets to chear me up certainly went a long way.. My special thanks to Kevin at Downrange.. You'll never know how much I needed that little pick me up.. I was a mess and it came just at the right time...


    Now the bad news... as long as the chemo works to stop the toumr in its tracks..I'll be OK.. When that is finally figured out with the cancer cell.. MD Anderson has no plan B. Not as of yet...So.. I will be praying for a plan b to extend my life.. If it's G-ds will..a little help there would to be appreciated..

    Every 2 weeks I get chemo...every 8 weeks or so.. I'll return to MD Anderson.. My Dr. at home and at MD Anderson are friends.. and all reports will be shared with all Doctors involved in my care...

    I'll keep you all posted.. BTW... I'm eating Frosted frakes and an egg in the morning.. chic'filet sandwatches for lunch with lots of fresh melons and fruits and vegies for lunch..yougart and light foods for dinner... and at least 2 to 3 snacks a day.. I've been Ok getting it to stay down.. Now after my next Chemo.. we'll see... So far.. about 2200 callories a day.. Wish it were more but the Doctors are OK with the lots of small meals I'd doing by my blood work.. hope I can keep it up after a fresh Chemo..

    Well.. Still here.. and don't feel to bad.. infact.. I'm alive.. and that's a great thing.. Once I get home.. if I can help you.. I have nothing but time.. i'll be back on the workbench... My second love next to Betty..

    Thanks again to all my friends who supported me...Your friend.. MIKE
