Today marks 11 years since I was properly diagnosed with stage VI non-small cell lung cancer (BAC). Since 2/1/06 I have had over a years worth of 6 different types of chemo, had my lungs replaced; seen the cancer come back in my lungs 3 seperate times after the transplant; and had appendix cancer which caused my appendix to be taken out along with a foot of small & large intestine. With all that medical / health crap I am still hear God is good he has a plan for me so I won’t complain. Next milestone 3/7/17... 10 years post lung transplant.....

Millions of Americans oppose SOPA and PIPA because these bills would censor the Internet and slow economic growth in the U.S.
Two bills before Congress, known as the Protect IP Act (PIPA) in the Senate and the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) in the House, would censor the Web and impose harmful regulations on American business. Millions of Internet users and entrepreneurs already oppose SOPA and PIPA.
The Senate will begin voting on January 24th. Please let them know how you feel. Sign this petition urging Congress to vote NO on PIPA and SOPA before it is too late.

Last week at a glance.
Surgery, I thought I would be getting an RFA procedure but going in they informed me it could either be RFA/ or / Microwave. When I woke up sore throat and all (incubation) with more IV's than I started off with I found out that the doctors did a Microwave procedure on only one nodule they think the other might be left over scar tissue from the wedge resection of 2009. I went home high as a Kite that night in the dark, in the rain with a nervous chauffeur (thank you morphine).
Sore as if I was still playing football going through preseason (abs and back were really sore), also deep breaths hurt. Lots of naps.
Rested most of the day, soreness decreased, took off bandage on my back (it stayed 12 hours longer than it should have), showered and I can't really see the incision from the Microwave.
Resting, soreness lessening, breathing is getting better.
Repeat of Thursday Saturday Did the DFW lung Cancer walk, I walked the 1 mile course it hurt, I was tired very tired afterward. The event turnout was good...it has more participants each and every year.
