    I have been in the hospital for 3 weeks for a leaky Hickman line, "Chemo", and trying to recover from a bad blood infection.

    I'm slowly turning a big hard corner. I will have to go through some heavy anti-biotic infusions and then another round of heavy chemo and if all looks good we will attempt to harvest my stem cells. If that fails-rest and repeat one more time.

    So that's it from here for now--"I'm a man - and I can change-If I have to--I guess...." Red/Green

    Hope all is well with the rest of you.

    The TW200 may be slow but the Earth is patient.

    I hate down time in a hospital bed. Had too much of it last year myself, but you have my curiosity . What is a Hickman line?


    Wait a minute. I googled it. It is a serious type of catheter, Ugh. And if that was where the infection got in, I would be inclined to think your medics screwed up.

    Getting old sucks big time. Sometimes the alternative doesn't seem so bad so long as I have a chance to put things in proper order first.

    Having been killed once gives me some insight.

    On the other hand, will you be riding again when this is over?

    Getting old really does suck. I regret the things I haven't done much more than anything I have done, with the exception being getting married the 2nd time.

    Peace by with you.
