The ORIGINAL gathering place for a merry band of Three Percenters. (As denounced by Bill Clinton on CNN!)

Went to my oncologist yesterday and it was, as usual, a mixed bag. The wound in my back continues its "heal, burst open, drain, heal and burst open" cycle, but we have determined that the anti-cancer medicine Gleevec -- which I have been off of now for two months to see if that would help -- is not responsible. Thus, I am now back on the Gleevec, with all its wonderful side effects. Which is okay by me if it keeps the "Alien"-like tumor from regrowing. We have about concluded that the drainage from the back wound is not coming from the esophogeal-gastric resection as it was before they glued me up, but just where it is coming from remains a mystery. My weight has stabilized at between 180 and 190, so I am not looking so gaunt these days. I was marveling the other day that I am now wearing a medium M65 field jacket. Quite a come-down from the XXL I used to wear. Not that I recommend a GI stromal tumor excision as a weight-loss program. Anyway, keep me in your prayers.

You are in my prayers, Mike, both for your body and your mind. Stay strong; you are more important to this fight than you know or want to believe.
May you find comfort knowing that you're never given more than you can bear; when you see only one set of foot prints in the sand behind you, you know whose prints they are! Peace be with you.
