5 DR.s

Five surgeons from big cities are discussing who makes the best patients to operate on.
The first surgeon, from New York , says, 
"I like to see accountants on my operating table because when you open them up, everything inside is numbered.."

The second, from Chicago , responds, 
"Yeah, but you should try electricians! Everything inside them is color coded."

The third surgeon, from Dallas , says, 
"No, I really think librarians are the best, everything inside them is in alphabetical order"

The fourth surgeon, from Los Angeles chimes in: 
"You know, I like construction workers... Those guys always understand when you have a few parts left over."

But the fifth surgeon, from Washington DC , shut them all up when he observed:
"You're all wrong. Politicians are the easiest to operate on.  There's no guts, no heart, no balls, no brains, and no spine. Plus, the head and the butt are interchangeable."

"Let's all be careful out there!"

This afternoon I go back to the eye surgeon to have 4 more stitches removed from the right eye. That will leave 4 to be removed at the end of the month or early June. It appears the corneal transplant and lens replacement are healing very well.

Had the PET/CT scan last Wednesday. The tumors have returned to my abdomen and thus a new round of chemo will be commenced shortly. Also radiation is being added. I usually have a pretty high tolerance for pain but it has become debilitating enough that the Doc now has me on Vicodin. Doesn't really eliminate it but it allows me to have some functionality.

This new chemo drug may forestall having the needed surgery on my left eye this Fall. That's disappointing.

Side effects of the new chemo will be hair loss and diarrhea. So there goes my pony-tail and beard. Oh, well. Feces occurs.

Self evaluating my emotional status: Mostly disappointment. Not depressed. Not afraid. I am a realist and knew that going into this situation I had, at best, a 50% chance of winning.

I'll let y'all know whats happening when an update is warranted.
