I realized that my "still alive" post was from my last birthday. Well I made it another year, but had a close call just before my birthday. In short, my chemo medicine stopped working and while waiting to get a new medicine to try, I started to bleed internally in the area of my tumors in my stomach. A rush to the emergency room and even with a low chance for survival they were able to stop the bleeding. I spent a few days in the hospital, but came home before my birthday.
So, still alive and kicking, but it was close. So far it seems the new chemo is working, and in a few more weeks I'll be doing much better. Once I'm doing better I'm hoping to do more free style photography work. In the mean time I will have some photos to take for e-book covers.
