Well, I'm b-a-a-c-c-k!  :).  I hope this is not a duplicate post - I started this message and then managed to lose it into the bit bucket in the sky!  I came home from the hospital this past Thursday and Betty and I are currently living in our daughter's spare bedroom here in Fort Bragg, CA.  I had a colon cancer removed on June 21 and spent a lovely 2 + weeks getting to the place they would let me out.  I am still weak and not in the running to compete with Lance Armstrong but am getting a little stronger each day.  I go back to the doctor on Wednesday for a check up.  Then I face some indeterminate time of chemo therapy or radiation therapy or both.  That will take place in Yuma - we are returning there as soon as I'm up to the trip.  I want to have our regular doctor involved as well as a oncologist from the Yuma area which will be our home from now on (after our new modular home is installed).  We hope to be there by mid to late August.

In any cases I want to thank all of you who have sent me get well cards - too many to mention individually - and let you know that they helped me immensely.  I Will get on here probably several times a week but not every day to check for messages.

Love to all of the framily,

Don

Whoopie!!!!!  Day by day and we're glad you are with family as your framily cheers you on.  I hope you just keep getting better and better.  I sent an email which was returned as your mailbox was full.  Full of good well wishes I'm sure!

Don,

Found you were in the hospital yesterday and now found you are out.

Take care and do what is necessary for a speedy recovery.  I just got my 10 year clean bill of health so you can beat the dragon.

Good luck to both you and Betty.  I have been on both sides as you know so if she need to talk, both Pat and I are available.

Our prayers are with you both,

Pat & Jim

Great to hear the good news. Take your time recovering in FT Bragg. The monsoon is late here, and in Yuma, and the heat is "dry" ;D ;D Thankfully we finally get to leave tomorrow.

Don,

You cannot imagine how pleased we are to see your first message.  Both of has have had the same concern that one has when a family member is ill.  We love you, enjoy being with you, and are extremely pleased to see that you have started along the road to recovery.  Now we can get on with getting that Hi Def TV system set up in your new modular home.

We love you and send our best wishes for a complete recovery,

Jerry & Ardra

Recovery sure beats lining in the hospital bed or on white satin in a long box. 8)

We'll move you to the "continued healing" column on our prayer list. Have a safe journey to Yuma whan they cut you loose for travel!

I'm not going to try to reply to each of you individually as I would like to but want to thank all of you for your well wishes and thoughts of speedy recovery.  They are greatly appreciated.

Love to all the framily,

Don

On the basis, Don, that there are no strangers among the Framily, let me add my good wishes for a quick and complete recovery from your surgery for colon cancer--the surgery and the cancer.

In just the past couple of days, one of our daughters-in-law sent me the following link:

                  http://www.thesurvivormovie.com/

for what are intuitively obvious reasons.

It may touch a chord for you (and others) as it did for me.

Ciao,

Doug
