Default Been gone for a WHILE but now I'm back

Sold my 01 a couple years ago to buy a house and 5 acres for my family. During that time my shoulder was hurting me. I thought I would put off getting it checked out until after we moved so I wouldn't be in a sling after surgery during the move. Well had it checked out and was given a cortisone shot and sent home. But the pain came back. MRI showed a mass inside the shoulder blade close to the joint. CT and radiology show abnormal cell growth. My bone biopsy came back as Lymphoma. Then a Pet scan showed I was stage3/4 with masses and legions from shoulder down to pelvis. Started a tough chemotherapy and immunotherapy regiment that at the end of day 1 infusion had me in anaphylactic shock. I was stabilized and ok'ed to resume the next day with heavy premeds to stop reactions. After 63 days I finally could take all 4 infusions in one day. Last infusion was on 11/1/16 after a clean scan in early October. I had another scan in mid December that was also clear. My last appointment on 3/20/17 was very good. I finally have energy back and I'm back to normal work and earning OT. Hopefully I can afford to get back in diesel soon. I get around now in my old 89 GMC 1500 4x4. Doesn't seem to be as much action on here as there used to be.....Maybe it's just a slow night.
