    Dodged a bullet this time

    In November I was diagnosed with a aggressive maligned and probable terminal strain of melanoma. On that same day I was fighting a house fire at midnight, because my other 2 crew members were woman and very small ones at that I over exerted myself and damaged a hernia, couple days later it went gangrenous and I was put into emergency operation. I have had a couple of cancellations on my cancer surgery and finally on the 24th of Feb. The registrar for Waikato cosmetic surgery operated. This was the best result I could of hoped for and after 12 hours in hospital I was discharged. Now 3weeks after the operation we had an appointment to see if the lymph nodes they took from my neck and the removal of a large part of my bottom lip was successful/ wellllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll llllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll lllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll
    it bloody was I'm now clear, whoop whoop. thanks for the messages and PM guys. unfucking believable. Life goes on.

    You must be a virus, you cant kill a virus(I think)

    I prescribe more hunting and fishing and less working for your recovery.
