    My cancer is back

    For the second time now I am dealing with lymphoma stage 2. I thought I was done with this crap, but apparently here we go again. I have started the whole chemo regiment now that surgery has removed the cancerous nodes in my neck. I am pissed that I have to go through this again. To top things off I have a 4 yr old daughter. I am at a loss at how to explain why daddys hair is falling out and why I puke for 2 days straigt after chemo. Just wanted to clear my head. Thanks for listening to my raving. I know my wife is scared, even though she tries hard not to show it. All I can do is hope and pray that this will be just a bump in the road. Take care.
    When I carry a gun, I don't do so because I am looking for a fight, but because I'm looking to be left alone. The gun at my side means that I cannot be forced, only persuaded. I don't carry it because I'm afraid, but because it enables me to be unafraid.

    thanks guys, this time the fight is going to be an up hill battle at best. The cancer is in my neck, and has moved past my diaphragm. This is why chemo is going to play such a huge role this time. Thank you for all your thoughts and kind words.

    b1780,

    May God bless you and your family, and heal you.
    Find some support, if you don't already have it.
