Well time has come to drop my paid Usenet service very soon, and frankly

Was back at work for a few hours less than 48 hours after my last
radiation session, so not doing too shabby, for now... I was given 15-30
months, but am confident I'll join the elite few that beat the odds.
Lucky the tumor was found while very small and cut out in little over a
week. There are some that are at the 10 year mark, and one fellow in the
States with the same tumor, is at 19 years and still going. But might
only have a couple years left. Life is now pretty much a month at a
time, nothing taken for granted...

I closed my machine shop when I immigrated. Couldn't bring any of my
machines, but brought all my tooling.
It's all going up for sale, sad to say. Anyone in the general Canberra
to Wagga region interested, have a fair bit of things too big/heavy for
me to deal with shipping, if you're willing to maybe pick up in
Cootamundra, email me direct, I'll post you a link to a photo album when
I get it set up.

Appreciate all the help and suggestions I've gotten here over the years.
Thanks to all who contributed here and still do!

Regards,

Jon

Well, we'll see in a few weeks when I get my first followup MRI. I'm
doing really well at the moment,
back to work less than 48 hours after my last radiation session, part
time. Doing better than I expected.
If that MRI is clear, I am thinking I might yet be around a while.
Though this cancer is called the Terminator
and 1-2 years is typical, there are some that are at 10 years, and one
fellow in the States is going on 19 years.
If I have a clear MRI, I'll move to one of the free services.
If it's back already, I'm in trouble....

Regards all,

Jon

Given family history, 100 years was doable. Was.
63 now, if I get 10 years, I'll be in a somewhat elite group.
Worth fighting for!
