    On the storm front, today is pure scat. Beyond stressed at work, with vacation beginning a week from tomorrow. Thank God.

    Yes I am! Most of my packing is done, with only a few odds and ends left to take care of on my day off today.

    Couldn't have said it better.

    While, I can't say I know what every person goes through, I've had times where I thought things were bleak.

    But then you get up on a beautiful day, the sun is shining on this miracle of a planet.

    @PatsBoy12, please try to understand how important you are, and how lucky we are to be on our journey here.

    Try finding a church near you.
    You can meet a lot of wonderful, caring people and friends.
    They are a very inspirational place to be. Really.

    Please try. We love having you here.

    I hope that a lack of entries lately are a good sign for those who have been going through tough times. I like this thread, because I’ve felt that reading some of the positive posts has somehow given me a bit of strength during difficult days.

    Even the Patriots lose once in a while. You didn’t come this far just to come this far. Keep being strong, we believe in you!

    You were making headway you just had a setback. It’s like climbing a ladder then taking a step back. You are further from the top than you were yesterday but much closer than where you started. Don’t shortchange yourself for the steps you’ve already passed!!!

    Grief is a trickster. Comes on with a promise to leave quickly if you'll just listen for a while. Then you do so, and think its gone, but find out it was just sitting in another room waiting for you.

    Better than its cousin, Denial and Numbness, though.

    Tough time of year for all that. All the best.

    Happiness and joy to everyone out there in Pats Land tonight and tomorrow.

    And if that eludes you, then hope you have as much alleviation of whatever ails you as possible.

    Cheers from Washington, DC tonight.

    I speak on behalf of Patriots Nation when I say we are praying for you and your current situation -
    The best suggestion one can offer you at this time is to reach out to Jesus for help,he is the one who performs miracles that no one else can - He's helped me through struggles and hard times and he will help you as well,all you have to do is ask and he will never forsake you.

    Reach out to him and you will be on the road to recovery - God Bless You friend and good luck

    Been awhile since an update. At my brother's urging, I had a combination endoscopy/ colonoscopy in March. The news wasn't all that good. I had genetic counseling last week, including DNA tests. In about a month, my doctor wants to perform surgery and remove some growths from my stomach. Needless to say, I'm scared ****less. My mom passed early, and I lack any semblance of optimism anymore.

    Very sorry for what you are going through. While I know everyone is different especially in the optimism/pessimism area, I hope you can stay positive. Whatever news you will get in a month, try to focus on having the best month you can, because a good month will have been worth it no matter.
    Best wishes and prayers to you.

    Hang in there brother. I'll keep you in my prayers. Medical technology is evolving quickly. Ten years from now we'll be participating in a thread wondering if that's the year Brady finally retires.

    Wordsmyth, Just Do It
    I don't talk about it much but here goes. I had cancer major surgery in 2010
    Report then was...cured. Check back in 5 years. It was OK.
    Flash forward to 2017... We're BACK!
    Fortunately the treatments are working so far. I feel great. Mentally too.
    Keep working at it & have a sense of humor about the indignities.
    Positive attitude seriously helps.

    You might be very surprised at how positive determination can get you through a lot of things, including surgery. Don't just put on an act; really BELIEVE you're gonna pull through okay.

    This is your life. Get used to the idea of hanging in.

    We're not ready to root for the Pats without you. Not for a long time.

    I was told 2 years ago by a cancer surgeon that within ten years cancer will be cured/prevented by a shot.
