Three weeks ago yesterday underwent emergency back surgery.  Cancer had spread to spine.  Very fast development as of sic months ago all cancer was in my lungs.

Doctors/surgeon did a terrific job.  Cancer affecting sciatica as well but surgery is ruled out so I'm on steroids' to relive pain.

Very blessed to have such a quick reacting team.. So far 30 immunotherapies, 3 radiation treatments (25 total) and four surgeries.  Doctors are truly getting to practice medicine!
Only downside is recuperation this time eight weeks with a six month prognosis!   Cutting into my range time.  Ordering another gun safe so my collection can be distributed to my two oldest grandchildren.

Mrs. had  just been terrific thru this all and has suddenly discovered how much there is to do to keep our landscaping in top shape. LOL  

So I may be hit and miss again here but always thinking of you all.

    Good luck, Patrick, and prove those doctors wrong and recover and live a lot longer than they think. And be able to get out and do the whole time. Prayers out for ya and the family.

    Prayers incoming.  Take care.
