    The Big C

    It's back! Yes, I have cancer...again. Third time and once again, thankfully, it appears to be operable. Having surgery next Tuesday. Have beat it twice, don't know why cancer has come back just to get its ass kicked again. They did send off my blood to a lab, so I guess there's some chance of something more. And! did that stupid China Virus test too...a requirement before the hospital will admit you. That tickles my nose .

    I am so lucky...even the doctor yesterday marveled at it. Said, Mr. Dawg80, usually patients experience a spread of cancer with the first, but almost always their second bout with it, even when it's tumors that can be removed. I said to him, it's not luck, I am just that good! I can whip the Big C, baby! But, truthfully, I am lucky and am very appreciative it is operable. Gotta count your blessings!

    I don't mean to make light of cancer, I know how deadly it is and how it has impacted so many people. My Mom died from cancer just a few years ago. It runs in our family. Which is why I refuse to feel sorry for myself...I am lucky and admit as much. I am also a fighter and I think maintaining a positive attitude, a willingness to fight, is good for you. Some folks give up and their ability to muster a defense against cancer or any ailment is compromised. Not me, I could be down 3 touchdowns in the 4th qtr and I would never give up. Fight to the end!

    I post this mostly as a reminder to all of you reading this, whether it's you or a family member, cancer is losing more and more battles. Which means more folks are beating it! Hit it head on...fight it...trust in our awesome healthcare providers, the wonderful doctors and nurses...and Keep the Faith! HE's got this....

    Re: The Big C

    I agree that your attitude toward these types of things is crucial. My brother has fought cancer off and on since 1988 and I don't think I have ever seen or heard him with any attitude other than God is in control and it will be all good. I know that parts of the process will be uncomfortable, but I am glad that you are facing it head on with a PMA (my 9th grade geometry teacher always said you had to have a PMA - Positive Mental Attitude). I am saying some prayers for you.

    Third time is the charm to beat it for good!!! You are in my prayers, stay strong and you will beat it again for sure! Plus we got a WC coming back to our home turf in '26. Can't miss that, our youthful roster right now will be prime aged performers by then.

    Cancer needs to take better notes so it doesn't repeat previous mistakes!

    Prayers for a successful surgery and a full recovery Jim.

    You got this, sir. Your mental attitude will see you thru. I kicked the Big C back in 2000.

    2006 for me. Wouldnt wish it on anyone.

    Jim -- I'm confident this will all turn out to be nothing more than an inconvenience for you. Take care and kick ass.
