No Post Today

Dear readers,

For the second time in a short period, there will be no updates on The Presurfer. I had a short vacation a couple of weeks ago, this time is more serious. I've not been feeling well lateley. My breathing wasn't good enough and my staying power reduced. I also lost some weight.

So, yesterday I decided to call the family doctor. She immediately sent me to hospital for a more serious examination. There, a lung specialist took some photos and saw a small spot on my right lung.

This morning, I've been back to hospital for a blood test. I have to be back there again on Monday morning for a CT scan. After that we problaby will know a little bit more. Anyway, I need a break until I know what is wrong with me. In the meantime, let us hope for the best and thank you for your patience.

Dude.... be vigilant. Get 2nd and 3rd opinions. Ask every friend or family member you know for insight. Google every term your docs throw at you. DO NOT be complacent.

Your website has helped me get through some of the hardest years of my life.

Sending you my loving support and encouragement. I'm a survivor of 3 types of cancer, two of them Stage 3, two aggressive variants. I survived chemo and mega radiation. It's been 12 years since the first diagnosis and treatment.

Researching things online, communicating on the internet with other survivors, learning their tips, recommendations, referrals, all helped save my life a number of times.

Sounds like you may have caught whatever this is early. Wishing you the very best.
