Adding all my best wishes to those expressed above.

Look after yourself Dave and take some comfort from the fact that we're all thinking of you.

Hello Dave,

We are many thinking of you: not only in UK, USA, or bahrein. In Austria too, France, Down-Under, etc and in so many languages...!
Make of every day a success with your loved ones. And keep fighting just as you have managed to do so well now for 3 years. 'Never give up' !

Avec toute notre amitié.

Hi Dave

Keep your chin up, keep the faith and good luck: recovery is just round the corner, and with an Elan you will get round it!

Have a good Xmas and a better New Year.

Never understimate the curitave properties of a well-administered curry (Thal, preferably) with plenty of naan bread to absorb the flames. Fight on, good sir, and we'll send good thoughts of many more LEC curry nights your way. Best wishes from the left coast of the left side of the pond!

Hoping Christmas is as good as it possibly can be under the circumstances Dave and Maxine.
Frustration: The right words are difficult to find - I feel as though mine all sound like cheap platitudes, but will think of you and hope you come through it smiling.
All the best mate.

Good of you and Bev to make the detour mate- much appreciated as I now know Chemo and Crimbo are not a good mix. 2 bottles of Talisker for when I'm better tho- that's a result in anyones book.

Almost two years since my last post here, and yes, I'm still here. Have been on continuous chemo since 2013 which is keeping the beast at bay but my GP knowing I like fast cars explained my current situation as-

"I'm heading toward a brick wall at top speed and yet with the brakes full on. Any second now the brakes will fail and the brick wall will bring about the inevitable."

For some reason I have been fortunate, not only to have Maxine at my side, but also to be able to tolerate the chemo which I now take every day. Most of those who I got to know through diagnosis have already been lost to this damn disease. I have been spared these extra months for some reason.
I have managed to break my leg my wrist and a rib or two and cope with the nurse injecting my chemo incorrectly DOH!

I'd like to thank Dave Eds and ChrisT for being there when I need them and for helping Maxine have a break from my sole company. More champagne please!!!

For those who have and those who haven't-
If you are over 50, have your psa checked. Not just once, but at least once a year, then if it changes it can be looked into. Remember there is no point having your psa checked if you ride a bike regularly or have sex with or without anyone else in the week preceding the test.


Best wishes to you all and to another eventful year ahead

Hi Dave!

Thanks for the update - glad to hear you're still driving hard. I especially appreciate "Good days are Elan days" in your signature block. It's something we all can appreciate; the context doubly emphasizes it! All the best from California!
