Update from Glenn

Yesterday I met with Dr. Taylor, the surgeon on my cancer team. He showed us the CAT scan, amazing technology. It confirmed that there is still an enlarged lymph node on the left side of my neck. Last week Dr. Suntha had told us that it appeared on the PET scan. Dr. Taylor called it a dead cluster, a dead lymph node that DID NOT light up in the PET scan. We decided to surgically remove it on Feb 3. I've come this far to chance leaving it in. They will put me under, make a 3" incision, and remove the lymph node. They will immedeiately disect it and make sure there is nothing of concern in it. If there is something, then they will enlarge the incision a bit and remove the surrounding lymph nodes in my neck. Statisitcally there is less than 10% chance of anything, we feel there is nothing!!! I will then be 100%. Thanks, keep your thoughts and prayers coming,

love ya all, glenn

(Hi Pat, Glad to hear from you! Hope YOU make it back safely! Sue)

Hi Sue,

Thought you might be able to use thisl

So far I have had a very uneventful trip, excluding driving 95 in Georgia. That road has got be the worst in the country. I will probably have to replace my windshield when I get home.

Had a great visit with the Edwards Family in Burgaw, NC. Burgaw reminds me very much of Mayberry, USA, Then on to Bueaufort, South Carolina. It has been about 39 years since I lived there. It really is beautiful. The antebellum homes on the bay have been refurbished and tourism has increased. The Marine Corps Air Station is still there and busier than ever, but it does not dominate the economy as it once did. I have a few post card pictures to show when I get home. Next stop....Sunrise, Florida. Sun Rise is not laid back like other places in Florida. The drivers are wild and remind me of New York City. Turns out most of the people living in the area have retired from New York. My friend Glenda has a small condo in the area. This is a large complex and units are now selling for $28,000. They have lost half of their value.

I was very glad to hear about Glen. Doug needs therapy. I saw his last picture.

Happy hour calls. Will be in touch.

Just before the funeral services, the undertaker came up to the very elderly widow and asked, 'How old was your husband?' '98,' she replied. 'Two years older than me' 'So you're 96,' the undertaker commented. She responded, 'Hardly worth going home, is it?

Reporters interviewing a 104-year-old woman: 'And what do you think is the best thing About being 104?' the reporter asked. She simply replied, 'No peer pressure.'

The nice thing about being senile is You can hide your own Easter eggs.

I've sure gotten old! I've had two bypass surgeries, a hip replacement, New knees, fought prostate cancer and diabetes I'm half blind, Can't hear anything quieter than a jet engine, Take 40 different medications that Make me dizzy, winded, and subject to blackouts. Have bouts with dementia Have poor circulation; Hardly feel my hands and feet anymore. Can't remember if I'm 85 or 92. Have lost all my friends. But, thank God, I still have my driver's license.

I feel like my body has gotten totally out of shape, So I got my doctor's permission to Join a fitness club and start exercising. I decided to take an aerobics class for seniors. I bent, twisted, gyrated, jumped up and down, and perspired for an hour. But, By the time I got my leotards on, The class was over.

My memory's not as sharp as it used to be. Also, my memory's not as sharp as it used to be.

Know how to prevent sagging? Just eat till the wrinkles fill out.

It's scary when you start making the same noises As your coffee maker.

These days about half the stuff In my shopping cart says, ' For fast relief.'

THE SENILITY PRAYER : Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, The good fortune to run into the ones I do, and The eyesight to tell the difference

Glenn Kicks Cancer's Butt, Ravens Thrash Titans

Jack, Max and Glenn sport purple to celebrate.
Jack even dyed his mohawk purple. He has to keep it that way through the Superbowl.

Mike took off Bill's hat and re-styled his hair for him.
Mike also stated that Patty was hot and that he wants to date her.
Glenn's son gave him this awesome shirt to share the good news.

The guys look really happy as they celebrate Glenn's great news with him.

When Doug showed up in 2009 again wearing pants with the ripped crotch, everyone had seen enough, especially when he used the hole as a napkin dispenser. New owner Andy ran over with a stapler to solve the problem. Doug's direct quote: "I stapled my thing".
(Doug, I never got my blackmail $$$, so this is the result)
