Hey guys, I'm gonna have to take a leave of absence from CycleVisor for while. I got diagnosed with cancer a couple of months back and am heading down to Stanford to go under the knife, hopefully they can get it all.
I guess the good thing is it's during the MotoGP mid-season break so hopefully I won't miss any races! Hope you can band together to keep the "motorcycles & girls" thread active while I'm gone.
If they can get it all it will be a "cure", but with a substantial recovery time, if they can't........I'll have to make other plans. They should know if it has been contained a couple of weeks from now.
Appreciate your thoughts. We leave Monday morning.
Good luck Allred! You're gonna be fine. Keep us posted. If you know anyone, get a bit of weed to get the appetite back. Hell, tell the docs you want it. I hear they get the good stuff.
I'll do my best to keep your thread going, but to be honest, that's big shoes to fill.
Stay positive, take yer phone, keep us in the loop guy!
We'll be thinking/pulling for you.
Got a phone call at 8:15 last night from the surgeon at Stanford with post operation pathology results..........ALL OF WHICH WERE NEGATIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The operation took almost 5 hours, the recovery time will be many weeks or months, and there was far from a 100% guarantee that all of the cancer could be caught in time, so I can tell you to receive a complete cancer-free clean bill-of-health means "dancing in the street" at our house!!!
I want to again thank everyone here for their good wishes, they were most, most appreciated!
I’m so glad to hear this great news. 2011 miles west of your home is a short round guy jiggin right along with you.
Knowing that you don’t have to endure months of painful recovery puts a smile on my shaggy face.
