  • Duke is sick

    Duke found out last week he has a blood cancer. Got a tumor on his spine and his legs were going numb and he found it hard to walk. Went in and they operated the next day.
    I have a link to a site his son set up, he has a video that explains it more.

    Sad day.

    Politicians and diapers have one thing in common. They should both be changed regularly and for the same reason

    I was just talking to him the other day (typing to him?).

    Kind of sad that he is isolating himself from the old crew, but it was only a game. Sadder still to hear this.

      There are other personal factors as too why he will only "lurk" here.

              Whatever. Is old fart better yet? You can't tell me he can't fight this. Stubborn fooker has more fight in him than just about anyone I know.

                  He starts Radiation therapy today and that goes on for 10 days, and chemo for up to 6 months.

                    Radiation is to kill whatever is active.

                    Chemo is to try and kill anything that may be produced for as long as possible. Since cancer replicates faster than healthy cells (except bone marrow, reproductive organs). The chemicals basically kill anything that replicates in cycles in hopes that it catches everything....

                    Unfortunately, it is like sniping with buckshot. The target isn't the only thing that gets hit.

                        Ok, well, wishing him the best of luck. Chemo sucks the life out of you. Basically poisoning your ass to make you feel better. Buy him some weed, will help with the nausea. Watched two family members die from bone cancer.

                        If he needs marrow or something else, I'd personally be willing to step up and get tested for a match, and there are a couple others here at MyY that I know would also, the disjointed family we all are.

                          Sad news, thinking of ya Duke. Let us know what ya need. I second Shifty, i'll get tested if ya need such. I don't know anything about such a medical problem so dunno if that helps, but i'll help whatever way I can. => blood type A+, though i don't know if that has anything to do w/marrow type or what have you.

                            It is a little more specific than blood type, but blood type will tell them immediately if you even need to get tested.

                            If you do not match type, then your marrow will not be accepted in a transplant.....
