G'day out there Saw my oncologist today and had another implant. He is pleased with my progress and in particular how quickly I have responded to the last implant three months ago. Apparently by now I should have become resistant to the therapy. There are also quite few new agents out there that on clinical trial are looking good, so the future is starting to look rosy. He believes that my cancer is changing and becoming more like what old men get rather than younger men. He has started to talk in decades rather than years. All good news. It looks like Sailor might be around to pester people for a few more years. Cheers Sailor The rushing of the sea-tides of the soul; And inspirations that we deem our own, Are some divine foreshadowing and foreseeing, Of things beyond our reason or control.
