    Hey gang. hey bret!
    bret.. quit doing the pity thing. We are all very happy you find the time to get your butt into here. We love hearing from you and we love talking back at ya. You my brother, are the reason this thread started. Now i am sure I can relate to your missing work. heck I do and i dont have your excuse! But chin up... all will be ok! You will see as will I. I just hope my good luck comes along before my unemployment runs out.
    Goosie.... give our bro bret a dose of Goosie's uplifting peptalks! I think we could all use it anyways. (I know I could!!!)

    I'm not good at "pep talks." I just tell it as I see it.

    Bret is a pretty lucky guy. For Karen and Andy, mainly. For Frank, who started this thread. For good docs who kept him from an almost certain fate not long ago. For the blessings of God, almighty.

    Now, even when you are a lucky guy, some of the things you still get to do are to feel low, depressed, and sorry for yourself. This sure beats the alternative, of not being here to do that.

    So, none of use can judge Bret if he feels a little down. At least he can FEEL it.

    That alone is reason for introspection and gratitude.

    Hey TB, you are early today. We need to figure out a way to buzz everyone else's computers to let them know it's time to check in.

    Bret,
    It's a bad time of year for trying to 'be up' so you are not alone with the $hitty feelings......albeit it you have the most reason to be in the dumps.
    I have watched and been amazed at your perseverance at the treatments first and now with the challenges of that poison burning out your system and trying to have patience in letting it get back......
    Bret, keep in mind that you have already accomplished, speaking only for myself, a degree of class, integrity and moreover an example of a Father and and husband that this guy could never have done, given the same circumstances. I am in awe of you and what you have not only done for your family.......but this dumb Canuck that wandered into this thread.......for that I thank you, my Friend.....

    I had to look Looking over the last 2 years expenses recently and it really bother me (heck Treatment was over) Even with great insurances it cost us several, several thousands of dollars a year for my health. Made me feel like a burden to my family.

    So decide that need to get away with the family. Andy has a 4 day weekend (well 3 1/2 day) so the 3 of us leaving Friday to spend 2 days at a in door water park. Family Fun time and getting away from some of increase in medical issues will be the boast I need.

    The Expo can wait till next year, I'd rather spend the money on time with Karen and Andy.
