I want to wish you all a belated happy holiday season and a very happy new year. Sorry I have been a way from my Pbase friends for a while. On December 7th I found out that I have several primary stage 4 Glioblastoma multiforme brain tumors. I had brain surgery 2 days later and they removed the largest one to determine exactly what type it was. The type is the fastest growing and most agressive type of cancer on the planet. So far I have had no pain, no head aches or anything that would indicate I have alien creatures living in my brain parts. Not exactly what I wanted for christmas, but I already had what matters, a Wonderful family and wonderful friends and that is all that really matters. Let the battle begin. It is what it is and it will be what it will be.
