Thanks guys. Mostly what you can do, is just keep on keeping on. Nothing that you can do for me right now. Moral support is always welcome. If you happen to be in the Phoenix area in the next 4 weeks, stop by Mayo Clinic Hospital campus and say hi.

I hope the doctor in the room at least shouts to the tech, "Mr. Sulu! Fire Proton Torpedoes!"
Note to self: start reading sig lines. They're actually quite amusing. :D

You are a tough old bastard. All the best and let us know if you need anything.
There must be an end to this intimidation by those who come to this great country, but reject its culture.

I learned Friday afternoon that the mask they bolt me to the table with is made out of Kevlar...

When this is all over with, we'll have to get you to the range with a matchlock.

Mike, that could happen. I have an older friend that builds matchlocks and wheellocks from scratch. He also makes some really beautiful jaegers. (I spelled it wrong and my spellcheck isn't helping this morning.)

Laying on the table this morning thinking how to describe the "procedure."

Lay down on a hard surfaced coffee table with a pillow under your knees, loop a loose belt around your toes to keep your feet mostly together, lay a damp towel across your upper chest and face/head. Now lay still for 20-30 minutes. It is okay to play your favorite music in the background.

I get to do this twice a day, Monday-Friday.

Assuming 25 minutes per session (some go faster, some don't) it means I get to be strapped down on the table for 1250 minutes over 5 weeks time. That works out to 20.8333 hours! About 450 minutes of that I will be getting Proton Radiation.

Definitely not a good place to be claustrophobic.

So it's not BOHICA? It's just HICA? 2x a day...

Lay back, relax and think of England.
