Re: President Trump

What a child. The White House wanted the USS John McCain "out of sight" during Trump's visit to Japan, WSJ reports. U.S. military officials worked to ensure Trump would not see the warship that bears the name of the late senator McCain. The ship is named after two admirals, John McCain' s father an...

Re: The Navy’s probe into sky penis

Small point - during the Vietnam war era, Fallon was a NAAS, not a NAS. It was upgraded to a NAS in 1972. I was sent to AFS Fallon , an Air Force radar and BUIC command and control center located within NAAS Fallon, in January 1970, to perform "blue suit training". This was a project where programm...

Fantastic news, Sugar! Steroids are amazing drugs.

There are side effects, but when yo...

Re: Aging - it's not for fraidy cats

I wasn’t listening carefully enough, but my brother was. Today I checked with the Oncologist. Treatment is only four days - 96 hours of continuous chemotherapy. After that I’ll be in the hospital roughly 3 or four weeks while they monitor my condition and deal with getting things back to normal like...

Re: Aging - it's not for fraidy cats

In oncology ward room 4006 for what will hopefully be 3 (or was it 4?) weeks of inpatient chemo. Shorter would be bad news - either it was a failure or I couldn’t manage the side effects.

Re: Aging - it's not for fraidy cats

I wish there was a way for your brother to sneak Gracie in for a visit or three. Or maybe you can plot with your niece to get that visit from Gracie. Hospitals are boring and lonely places. I’m sort of moving in the opposite direction. I’ve suggested that my brother take Gracie to San Diego so that...

Re: Aging - it's not for fraidy cats

There’s still hope, however small. The oncologist said there’s a chemo combination that might work but would require weeks of hospitalization. I felt this was better than trying to get to San Diego into hospice and waiting to die, or being home where I’m basically a lump on the sofa. So I’ll move to...

Re: Aging - it's not for fraidy cats

Not looking good. The hospitalist said what can only be described as bad news. My cousin is quick to point out that hospitalists are not experts in anything and just generalists, and I need to hear from the oncologist. However, the hospitalist indicated that the chemo will probably be more and more ...
