My heart goes out to you. I would dump everyone that isn't behind your recovery.

Dear Gilmer my heart goes out to you, we are about the same age and quit around the same time I think ( you just beat me to it) so I have always felt an affinity for you..

Love David

Ditto that!!

A friend beat impossible odds against cancer more than 5 years ago and is now battling another round with it. Original "life expectancy" was several months.

He's approached it through three-pillars of support: chemo, orthomolecular medicine and spiritually. He gives most of the credit of healing to the spiritual aspect.

Gilmer, I'm glad you're here.

I'm sorry you're going through this.

Gilmer 07-04-2018 04:48 PM

Thank you guys so much for your counsel and encouragement.

Thank you for divulging your real name, David! Mine is Kathy.

I feel an affinity for you, too, because you’re the wittiest guy on Weekenders! :c014: You never fall to bring us a smile!

Gilmer 07-04-2018 04:48 PM

Thank you, Weasel! It is always a joy to see you.

How much you have contributed to this place!

You’re always so quick to inspire others to persevere and not panic.

Weasel1966 07-04-2018 04:50 PM

I agree Kathy... that was a big deal for David... Ken here but you already knew that. How about I divulge “Gilmer Fan”? LOL but you also knew that too. :)

Gilmer 07-04-2018 04:54 PM

See the post right above yours! :)

Its still a lot for me to take in, but you're as inspirational as always Kathy.

❤️❤️❤️ you are truly one incredible woman. And much loved by so many. You have changed so many lives for the better, including my own with your positivity, kindness and support. I hope and pray for your recovery from this. But I also know that when your time does come, as it will come for every one of us sooner or later, you will be welcomed and embraced with such loving arms and immeasurable gratitude, for being such an amazing loving inspiration to so many people ❤️❤️❤️

If they have a new idea, Iíll consider it. The only trial so far that would be geographically feasible for me offers nothing beyond the hope for an extra couple of months, with side effects.

Is there anything non geographically feasible that would give you a chance?

Gilmer 07-04-2018 05:16 PM

Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Dee. :hug: It’s still a lot for me to take in, too (even though I’ve been repeating it over and over again all day between here and emails!).

Thank you Willow! What a kind and loving post!

Gilmer 07-04-2018 05:17 PM

I haven’t checked yet, Rar.

I will search the government site for more hits.

Gilly, I am soory- but you are mandated to report your s-i-l for beard abuse.
When, oh when will the bearded truly have the same rights as baldies? Perhaps the Ghost of Bearded Past was giving him a little, just a little reminder as to the consequences in bearder abuse.

Support to the Floyd says..'Have a cigar'.

I am not doing well with you know love. I can't find any zen here.

Dee74 07-04-2018 05:35 PM

Suze :hug:


trachemys 07-04-2018 05:38 PM

I'm not either, Suze. I keep crying.
