Hello everyone... well i'm pretty much back from the dead... all started last Jan. i had an operation to remove an 8cm. cancer
growth and it snow-balled from there... within hours after the operation, i flat lined... was brought back and was placed in an induced
coma for several days... when i was brought out of it... i went into toxic shock twice... the second one, it was discovered that i had
about 80ml. of toxins in a pocket near the operation site... fluid removed and i began a slow healing process... then was given the
news that i had MRSA (staph infection) witch required 5 more weeks in isolation in the hospital... after the 5 weeks, shots, IVs, meds,
blood tests.... i began healing and went into physical rehabilitation.... very weak, i struggled to regain my former self... after loosing
approx 67 lbs. it was tough... then i was finally released from hospital, and began 6 months of chemo treatments... after that was done...
more tests were done and discovered that up to that point i had kicked cancer's ass... now finally after weeks of chemo and meds.
working their way out of my system... i'm doing well and getting my appetite and weight back, and becoming a reasonable facsimile 
of my old self.... i want thank all of you from FB for becoming my angels of healing... and supporting me in the dark hours of recovery...
Namaste..
Bugs.
