September 23

The day started out bad and it only got worse. I will not share all the gory details of the events of the morning but will let you know that the pathology reports came in; the cancer that has returned to my bladder is very aggressive and very dangerous, really like nothing I have ever fought before.

Lots of potential complications.

If I get through this it will require some painful decisions and sacrifices that I am not really emotionally prepared for at this moment. But I will be.

Moving forward.

If this sort of real life vérité is too painful and difficult for you to process, I would pass on it for a while. I understand completely and my love for you is not diminished. The rest of you stay tuned.

Well Robert I think you are fully entitled to share this process on the blog. I think many of us will walk with you on this.

I'm here for your musings, not to hear some pep talk about life. I've had friends and family with bladder cancer who've lived to tell the tale, (and complain about the hassles of the consequences of the decisions they made). But griping is allowed in our family and we support bitching about the bad stuff. ~D.O.

Hey Robert, you are a tough bastard and I’ll see you on the other side of this treatment.
Keep on truckin.
