    Been through two cancers myself, Mark, so I can empathize at least a little. It helped to realize that I was lucky I hadn't already wrapped my car around a telephone pole 50 years ago. We're all right behind you, in more ways than one for some of us!

    Well....I don't mean to be a cliche...but....I don't know what to say, but hang in there!

    Good luck, bro. Keep in touch, and let us know how you're progressing.

    I just saw this thread, Mark. You'll be in my thoughts. Post when you can. This place isn't the same without you.

    An update:

    Okay, I've been dealing with chemotherapy for a few weeks now, and it's going very well. All of the 'bad signs' have reversed, and it looks like chemo is going to take care of this, at least for now. Bad news is that pipe tobacco (and most food) tastes like sh*t, so I'm now a nonsmoker, at least until I'm through with this. So I doubt I'll be around much until it's over, but I figured I'd better let everyone know that the reason I'm not here much is because I'm not smoking, not because I'm not breathing...

    Great to hear it's going well! Don't get too down about your sense of taste, because when the chemo is over, I've read that your taste buds will recover in a few weeks. (Better than radiation, for sure, which takes months.) Looks like you're not too far away from enjoying a bowl of Cairo, Mark! Maybe when you come back, you'll become a confirmed Ennerdale smoker!

    Mark - I bet some Mixture 79 would wake up those taste buds!

    Thanks for letting us know you're ok! Hopes thoughts and prayers are still with you.

    Sorry to hear that Mark, glad to have you back for a little bit though.

    Glad to hear the chemo seems to be working as well as possible.

    Let us know if there's anything we can send to make things more bearable for you, doesn't sound like any tobacco will help though.

    Keeping you & your family in thoughts & prayers.

    My Co worker said something similar about the taste thing. The good news is that since he came off the chemo a few weeks ago, it came back fast.

    Keep fighting!
