Hi guys...I talked to my sister tonight for a while and she is ...in her own words ...okay...
Really better than she has been in awhile. A lot of our conversations lately have been very... odd.

Love my big sister and I hope you understand that I've been wrapped up in her

Very happy to hear that your sister is doing better. I hope her recovery continues to go well and her overall health continues to improve.

Had my first postop visit with my surgical oncologist. He said my surgery is healing well. He told me that the pathology report came back negative on the 5 axillary lymph nodes removed from under my left arm. He declared me "100 cancer free" at present. It was as good a check up. I have another follow up in 2 weeks for the removal of my stitches.

I'm not a doctor, but I would say that this definitely qualifies as good news!

I believe that someday I will punch that arrogant foreman at the plant square on his fat nose; that I will get in the last word with my wife; that I will win the Irish sweepstakes; that the Mets will start a winning streak.

Congratulations on landing a roundhouse kick. I'm very happy to hear this, and I'm not a happy man.

A friend of ours, a guy I've played on many stages with the past couple of years, has leukemia that came on very hard and very fast. My age -- two girls, a little younger than my kids -- and I'm gutted.

I'm very sorry. Be strong. Obviously a lousy time to be moving, too.

Just finished my chemo and radiation treatments. Last step is a week from Friday, in to NYU Hospital for a surgical procedure with Dr. Who which will take the place of two more weeks of radiation.
