Hello My wonderful friends,
Yes, I have no spred of Cancer and a great chance of beating this dog... It's a race to 7 and I'm winning 6-3. I broke and made 6 balls but right now I'm hooked. I need the jump cue for this one. Luckily, it's still my shot.
I have to go through the Chemo, Radiation and Operation. Discovered it's a bad Cancer although, I've never heard of a good one. Anyway, it's meatball surgery and I will look and feel like the guy they call tooth pick. I won't be making the Derby and that really hurts. I will lose my game for awhile, about 6 mths. but, I will live. Those that relate to odds better. 50/50 chance it'll show up somewhere else down the road. That might not seem good but it's good enough for me.
To all of you. I would have posted this news Monday but was busy celebrating Kato's birthday. LOL Actually, I was really mentally messed up. One of my sweetest and dearest friends pm'd me today. My friend mentioned that she was not in my inner-circle and felt badly but was worried and wanted to know what had happened, respectfully.
Well, everyone is in my inner-circle. I'm not like that at all. I love you all. Even those who've not replied to the post are still my friends. This kind of stuff isn't easy to digest for some, myself included. Life is too short to not care about others.
When, my father died. I never went to the grave, still today I haven't gone. I hated my father. Not because he was a bad man. I hated him for leaving me. I know it wasn't his choice but the mind functions the way it does for protection. I so didn't want to leave my son or Heide.
I still have a long way to go. It won't be easy and I'll give up my passion for awhile. I will, post less as time goes by as the Chemo and Radiation takes it's course. I will do what it takes to rid this Cancer from my body.
I don't think my game will suffer much. As I will watch tapes, read about pool, run racks in my mind and practice my stroke. I'll be getting lite up about 25 times and have to fade the Chemo. I'm tough as my friend Wally mentioned. LOL But, I will admit, I'm scarred. I do have an advantage being a pool player though. With all of you there with me, I can beat this and the 4-6 mths will be a cake walk.
I want to tell all of you that I can't thank you all enough for your support. I think this has gave me strength beyond belief. I'm going to win. I will go to Vegas next yr. and play the masters event. I will not leave the CCB. I especially want you to know, I love you and thank you all from the bottom of my heart.
God bless all of you,
Chris~~owes Susan 1/2 beer and the Riv owes the rest....lol
