    I keep pointing out to people that all these health issues started after I quit smoking
    Though I don't regret quitting, and don't miss it either.
    All the best.
    At least they haven't blocked the site.

    My health issues pale in comparison to yours but mine also only showed up when I quit smoking.
    Dont miss it at all either.

    Thanks guys, im just cruising along taking it one step at a time, things are getting sorted bit by bit and it doesnt get to me too much. I doubt I'm going to enjoy chemo but it's a three month program so a lot shorter than many others have to go through.
    My mum's probably finding it the hardest, she nearly cancelled their river cruising trip to Europe, thankfully she did get on the plane and they have been receiving my text updates al day so she can sleep tonight

    All the best Cigar.

    One day at a time.
    Chemo affects everyone differently some cruise it, some do it tough
    Beware that itís effects are cumulative, with me it got worse as I progressed.
    The nurses, ( no matter what hospital ) will be bloody awesome, and youíll meet some neat people.
    Look forward to coming out the other end, I did, now Iím planning a november hunting trip !
    All the best, keep us updated.

    Best wishes for a speedy recovery Cigar. I hope the chemo goes well.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    All the best for a quick recovery, you'll enjoy dropping that bag?
    I gave up smoking at 23 and have had some health issues since then, but Im 69 next week, I think it was a good decision!!
    Boom, cough,cough,cough

    Bit slow getting to a client this arvo. Had issues with a teenager female runaway. After returning her home twice I found out how she was escaping. The driveway gate wasn't shut properly and she was just squeezing through the gap. Bloody fast learner, second time I grabbed her collar her legs stopped working. So I had to pick her up in my arms and carry her home.

    At least the client is a dog person, having similar issues, so understands.
