I want to thank everyone trying to help me, I will try all of your advice as best I can,

Recent developements with my health I may not feel up to posting very often.

On top of my other problems on the 12th it was confirmed I had a fast growing cancer.  This morning I was informed the cancer dr. wants me to start on Chemotherapy next Monday.  If I respond to chemo as most of the other people I know who went thru it.

I am probably not going to feel like doing much of anything. LOL never mind the mule just load the wagon.


I was also informed I was not a good candidate for receiving chemo intravenously. My veins tend to blow so now they are talking about surgicaly installing a [portal] but will not say how long I may be on chemo.


To add insult to injury lol my short term memory loss is getting worse. Early onset of dementia/Alzheimer.

I made this a new post because I could not remember which post people had asked about my health.


Just thought I should let yall know and say thanks again.


I apologize to the mods I know this is not computer related stuff but I did not want the members who have helped me think I had just abandoned the forum and their help. Thank you.

Danny, I'm sorry to hear about your health issues.
Take care of YOURSELF. YOU and your health take precedence over the forum.

If you feel like checking in here, do so. If not, we understand.

No need to apologize for posting-I'm glad you did so we would not wonder what happened to you if you suddenly dropped out of sight.

You are right dannyboy950.  There are more important things than computers and this forum.  I hope you pull through.  Good luck. :thumbup2:

dannyboy950, having gone though this ordeal with three family members, while I've never felt it, have seen the results of cancer treatment, and can most certainly cause loss of energy, among other side effects your oncology physician(s) & team has discussed with you. 


I wish you the best of luck and a timely recovery. A couple of things that's important, is first, no matter how you feel, keep your head high & maintain a positive attitude, this can go a long ways in determining the outcome of your treatment regime. Secondly, though the medicine(s) will cause many to eat less, do your best to eat foods that you like. Ice cream, if you like it, is loaded with calories & help you retain weight. It's critical to try & not lose no more weight than possible. 


You're in my prayers when I hit the sack in just a bit. :heart:


We'll be here when you return. :)
