Steve, thanks for letting us all know that you are going through this.  I know it is going to be hard to see the positive, but try and hang in there and have a great attitude.  Miracles do happen in science and medicine every day.  You will be in my thoughts and prayers on a daily basis.

Steve...I'm sorry to hear this sad news.  My thoughts and prayers are with both you and your wife.  This is definitely going to be the fight of your life, but it sounds like you are up for it and taking all the right steps/precautions.  Best of luck to you...

Damn this hurts me more than I thought it should. I don't even know you, other than your posts on CP. I've debated about posting anything in this thread because I wasn't sure how to write without expressing sympathy. But my heart finally got the best of me, mainly because saying something is way better than saying nothing. There are plenty of brothers telling you to fight the good fight and I throw my hat into the ring with them. I also offer the testimony that my mother-in-law lived for 4 years after being diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer.
 
Thanks for trusting this community with your personal battle.

I recently just lost someone close to me who fought long and hard against cancer for years longer than she was expected to.  Those remaining few years were the best of her life.
 
Make it count, brother, as I'm sure you always have and are still doing.  We're all here thinking of you and as many have said...need anything, just ask.
 
Peace and good thoughts.

The hair is about gone (there wasn't that much there to begin with).  Wednesday I will have my 2nd chemo.  This one is scheduled for 6 hours, the first was 8 hours.
 
The outpouring of support has been amazing.  I have received cards of support and caring from people and places I don't know.  This is not a lonely trip.  Everyone is wonderful.
 
Thanks guys, for your support.  It does help.

Ok, I'm a slow learner, which WHAT would you prefer Warm? Obviously your eyesight and humor are still good.

2nd chemo today. 7:30 am until 3:00 pm. It went very well. So, I am tolerating the chemo well. What we won't know for a few weeks yet, is how well the chemo is working. There will be another PET scan to check for shrinkage.

Thanks for your kind words and support.

I'll keep you posted on this thread for those that are interested.
