Preventive Care..."guys, take heed!"

Recommended Posts

Hello to all of my :wh: junkies! As we all know, 98 percent of all of us men are stubborn as oxes! I fall into that category myself! Doctors bad...self healing good! Lol! Well fellas...wanted to put a little bit of "reality" in everyone's pride. "Do me a favor!" "If you ever have anything go wrong with your body, please have it checked out!" I was diagnosed with rectal cancer this past Monday. Something to that extreme puts a damper on any :wh: restorations that may be going on. Been working on the 953, but now I have to drop everything and focus on getting better! Redsquare is my go to forum, everyday! Love the pics and the stories...have added a few myself! Lol! Thanks for being my friends, even though you guys haven't realized you are! Goina beat this! Have to! Haven't restored an RJ yet! Lol! Thanks again fellas! I'll keep ya posted on the treatments.....

Go ahead and restore as you are healing (could help the process).  I'll pray for you and your family.

God and Laughter is the ultimate medicine...You can't go wrong with the 2. Rent some ol' comedy movies. Personally I like the boy - 3 Stooges, and Bill Cosby. Then laugh yourself to wellness.

 

Will be praying also.

Prayers to you. Some people find great solace in keeping busy while healing. That is up to you. Either way I'm sure Geno will be scarfing up enough stuff for the two of you. :beer:

Sorry to hear this Firpo.  Keep busy and stay positive. My sister beat this two years ago and just got a clean check up yesterday.  Thoughts and prayers to you and yours.

Just like Rob said, keep your spirits up and know that you have the community praying for you. I personally enjoy the old Westerns from the '50s when I was a kid. Makes me want to buy a "Fanner 50" on eBay!

You pretty well summed up my attitude (old ox) about doctors and self healing but doctors are great when you need them. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Hey Buddy  My wife and I are both cancer servivers  you will be on our prayer list here at home and at church.

As soon as we find a box the right size we will send some goodies. We will keep the hot stuff here as that might

be the best for you. but then again you could just keep till 100% again. Keep tinkering with red stuff, keep that

mind busy.

Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers! Found out today they are sending me to Ohio State in Columbus for testing. Most likely they will do surgery there also. I'll know more after Wednesday. Thanks again! Dom.....

Prayers sent for your complete recovery Firpo. Your attitude and sense of humor will serve you well. Staying positive helped me through. Best wishes my friend.

I couldn't agree with Jim more. Attitude and sense of humor. You have both. A lady friend of ours went through breast cancer and ultimately a double mastectomy. Her attitude and incredible humor throughout it was amazing. One time I asked her how she managed it. Her response "I could sit around and cry about it but then I'd still have cancer but with runny makeup". She is now a cancer survivor.  Our prayers go out to you Firpo.

Thanks again guys! Just arrived in Columbus. Staying here tonight as my appointment is early and I have to prep for it. Didn't want to try to drive 2 1/2 hours in the morning while the prep was wearing off. Lol. Supposed to come back next Thursday for a CT scan and to get the results from tomorrow's test.So that's where I'm at so far. Thanks again for everyone's support and prayers! That means a lot! Will keep you posted...Dom...
