Big Bad Bunny Teeth



I see that my mom's juicer is getting good mileage based on the comments in the previous post! I don't think she mentioned that for a few years when we were kids, my mom bought bushels of carrots and forced us all to drink carrot juice to avoid having to wear glasses later as adults. Now, how many of us in the family wear glasses? Maybe it was these darn internets that screwed up our eyesight! Well, at least you all will stay regular and have a slight gold tinge without the need for a spraytan. BTW, is Dallas Raines still orange and giving the weather report?

Well, thanks for the chemo update. Marco graciously er...-finally- emailed me himself (actually, a while back only I've been blog-weary and didn't update), that the chemo would keep going for six days straight again starting next Friday February 6 until they get the blob shrunk down enough to get it out of his lungs, if not, more chemo rounds. So didn't sound as bad as we imagined but I haven't been updated since last week so were thre any lingering effects, other than carrot juice overdose? Hey, I actually thought one of those chemo drugs, the one that is supposed to protect your bladder would turn your pee orange? True or false? If that's the case, don't blame the poor helpless carrots! :)

I believe in the naturalness of this juice. For real!!! I was coming down with the flu and Momma has been feeding me the thin long glasses of carrot juice and it built my immunity. I'm ok now and ready to donate blood. I am looking forward to finishing the sack of carrots my mom and pops bought. Seriously a sack. I love it!!! Call me Orange not blue! Hey orange you glad your drinking it!!

Well you said you wanted to know what we all go through and what is going on so I will start with this :

Last radiation was yesterday on Wed....M&M got a medal from COH after his treatment. It was a really nice medal. Dr. Ch said he would see him only if there would be any severe redness on the leg.

We saw Dr.T today and Dr.Mc and said everything is looking really good as far as the leg goes.

He will continue to see M&M's progress in a couple of months. So Dr. K and Dr. C will now be in charge for the cancer in the lung.

We will see Dr.T in 3 months unless something else happens in the leg (knock on wood that it doesn't)

One week from today and M&M goes back to COH for second round of chemo its not something we are looking forward too but it needs to be done.

Hang in their M&M its a tougher road ahead and we will get throught it as we have been with a great positive attitude.... to get shit done that needs to get done to fight this Ma'ja Fa'ja.

And you have the strengh of a bull and not to mention your whole support team and rally monkey's to help you too.

Wow, you guys definitely go through alot! It is great to hear that Marcus is done with his radiation and not only does he deserve that medal, he deserves a whole casefull. Marcus is truly the most wonderful, valiant, courageous and yes funniest person I know. You gotta love Marcus jokes. We all know that the fight is not over but it is good to know that not only does he have a good team of doctors at COH he has his support system here. We love you Mr. Marcus and we appreciate the Wife for many reasons but especially for keeping us posted. Your last post is very informative. Thanks!!!

Thank you the Wife for your post and updating us. I can just imagine how busy you guys have been with all that's going on. Just so much is going on and so fast. We are a TEAM and we will pull Marco through this second Chemo. We'll also be celebrating The Wife's birthday in our second home of COH sitting in our favorite couch and looking out that huge window at ODAT's dream home and nice landscape. Marco you are strong and you know we are here with you. We will help you get through this next journey. I have blood and platelets anytime you need them. Just let me know in advance so I can go through the donating process. To The Wife Thank You for your unconditional love and support for Marco. We love you guys! And Buddy Congratulations on your Medal!!!

Don't Quit!
When things go wrong,as they sometimes will, when the road you're trudging seems all up hill, when the funds are low and the debts are high, and you want to smile, but you have to sigh, when care is pressing you down a bit, Rest! If you must; but don't you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns, as everyone of us sometimes learns, and many a failure turns about. When he might have won had he stuck it out; don't give up, though the pace seems slow; You might succeed with another blow.
Often the goal is nearer than it seems to a faint and faltering man, often the struggler has given up When he might have captured the victor's cup. And he learned too late, when the night slipped down, how close he was to the golden crown.
Success is failure turned inside out; The silver tint of the clouds of doubt; and you never can tell how close you are, it may be near when it seems afar; so stick to the fight when you're hardest hit; it's when things seem worse that you mustn't quit.

These words brought tears to my eyes. It is a crazy rollercoaster that we are all on. We are here to support you. You are always in my mind and in my heart.

Round 2 bring it on!! Marcs we have your back. With all of your support team (Rally Monkeys, people who act like monkeys), family and friends (oh, and the boys who I call "Friends") by your side we hope to have you home soon.
So you got a little or alot tired, you got some pansa aches and you got a new hair doo and hair stylist. You are still running strong. Facing it all and still kicking butt and taking names.

I am glad they gave you a medal because we all recognize what a fighter you have been through all of these overwhelming circumstances. Fight On!! The V
