    No regrets.

    It takes a real man to admit that he has made mistakes, but has learned from them. So remember, if you need to forgive anyone, get er done and put that behind you. And remember, say what you mean and mean what you say. An honest man lives by his word. And this verse in the bible, "a tree is known by it's fruit" good or bad..so produce good fruit my friend. It takes a lot of guts to put what you said on this forum.

    A father in-law update and a few things I dont understand

    Wow, posted this almost 2 years ago.
    Father in law, climbed up the hill and is (was) doing fine. Came out of his funk and was back to almost normal (he is a newfie after all, never was normal in the 1st place).
    But...a few weeks ago, he started being short of breath and generally feeling like shit.
    Luckily, our family Doctor retired and we have a new one and she's on the ball. She sent him to all the test, no wasted time and see him back hours after the test results are in.
    But that doesn't mean it's good news.
    He has a mass on his (last and only) lung, about an inch square.
    The specialist was shooting straight with him, he said that they still had to make a biopsy to see if it's cancer or not but it doesn't look good.
    This time they cant chop it off so it's radiation. If it works, good.
    If it doesn't...

    Yes Paul, the phone stopped ringing.
    I'm moving on and when I move on I rarely burn the bridge but I avoid said bridge like the plague.

    Luke, has the phone calls finally stopped? Don't get caught up in something you really have no cotrol over. Sometimes we just have to move on. Best wishes.

    No one needs friends like that. Surround yourself with positive, good friends and your life will be much more positive and good.

    A father in-law update and a few things I dont understand

    I watched my mom die of cancer in 2001 and then watch as my dad died of cancer (started out in his lungs) in 2005. Just last year my MIL who used to take rides with me on the back of my Sporty died of cancer. Each one of them handled it a little differently. While my mom still had her wits about her I asked her if she was afraid of dying. She asked me if I was. I told her no, of course not. She said, "then neither am I".

    When my dad was under the lethal eye of hospice I would go visit him. One time he told me, "You need to get out of here and be with the living." He meant my wife and kids. I left that day, but when I returned the next he wanted me there. I wasn't there when he died, but the day before I told him it would probably be the last time we'd ever see each other. I knew he wouldn't make it another day. You can tell those things after a while.

    I don't know. I guess nobody knows how they will act until it is their time. I know that I honestly don't fear death in the least ... but then I have no terminal illness either. I think I will go gracefully, but if I don't I then hope my family will understand.

    Not much you can do or say to change things here. Just continue to be supportive. Even if he doesn't actually acknowlege your being there for him and the family, he will know.
    I hope everything works out.

    I can add a few more names today. Yesterday I met Peter (paralegalpete) for dinner and see his new ride and a few guys were there. I met Paul (sportsterpaul), Sprink (Greg), JonhK (John), sportsterdude.248 (Perry). And Ironmick was also there. I was only a quick meeting but it was nice.

    I have a few pictures HERE.

    My wife will be freaking out soon

    Ran in to a old friend a few days ago.
    He told me that over christmas, he was rushed in with lumps in both sides.
    4 years ago he had prostrate cancer and now male breast cancer.
    Had them removed withen 3 weeks.
    So keep checking.
    Take care.

    Just got back from the doctor's office and it seems Im not dying just yet.

    Had a breast exam (feel awkward saying saying that) and nothing to worry about and the lumps were probably cause by an infection and I fought and won against it.
    But he did tell me to keep checking and not to hesitate to go back if lumps keep showing up.

    BTW, Im sure you knew that breast cancer is "common" with women. But 1 in 8? And it's extremely rare in men, 1 in 100000.
