    I have felt like shit 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.

    Good luck Mike!

    (Are you talking about the St. John's in MI? Or is there another St. John's in AK?)


    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.

    :hug:
