Median Point - 19 months

This past week my oncologist told me that 50% of the people who have cancer that's spread through out their body only survive 19 months from diagnosis.  On October 6th I will reach 31 months since it was discovered in me.  I am getting up into the single digit survival zone.

Am I winning?...Nope.
The end result is still terminal but I've always been a fighter.

Doc says I should see Xmas this year, but no time projections beyond that.

I am in constant pain but limit myself to medication when it gets really, really bad.

Just wanted to let everyone know that I am still here and still "kickin'."

What do I do to pass the time?  For the past year I've been studying quantum physics, black holes, "branes" and the 11th dimension (no joke, it really does exist).  Just light thinking to keep the brain from going stale.

BTW - Did you know that gravity doesn't pull but it pushes.  It is actually the fabric of space/time pushing us towards a mass.

"Let's all be careful out there!"
