I haven't been posting much recently.....

I have felt like .... for the past few weeks. I woke up last Tuesday with laryngitis, thankfully Wednesday was a doctor day. After a CT scan the doctor told me that there is a tumor pressing against the nerve in my larynx, and he doesn't know when or if I'll get my voice back.

I also have a tumor on the nerve that runs from the spinal cord to my left leg that is causing all my back pain.

I have contacted St. John's Cancer Center about possible Cyberknife treatment.

Also, did you ever talk to your doctors about the DCA?

I had noticed that you weren't around much these days - unfortunately, this was just the sort of explanation I half-expected.

Stay strong, Mike. Major healing vibes your way, and thanks a lot for giving us an update.

Please, please post something, Mike.
