Hi guys!!! I made my first real trip since I was diagnosed with cancer in Sept of 2011. I live in Altoona, AL, and I went to Birmingham, AL to the World Of Wheels car show. We also went by Olive Garden for lunch. I walked the whole thing, plus had to walk around because I had forgotten which lot I parked in. LOL!!! Other than being sore as all do get out, I did alright! The bad part, I think I caught a stomach bug there. I have just gotten back to where I can eat and all again. So I think I will do alright taking in a college football game!! Looking forward to seeing my Auburn tigers play at some point!! But I am improving!!! I am going back next Thursday for another chemo treatment. Pray for me!! God bless you guys!! I love you guys!!
Are you smashing some wings and pounding beers yet? Best of luck.
Prayers sent from this Bama fan in Bham! Get well bud!
Thats awesome man! Will definitely keep saying a prayer for ya, oh an BTW I am from the Hokes Bluff/Gadsden area so i'm just a stones throw away from ya. There is no place better than Etowah County/NE Alabama

I always wondered who your team was
Now I know
fsufsu said... I've got about 10 great stories on Lane but all you need to know is he will never be a loser, that's for sure.
If they are non-alcoholic beers, I can have all I want of them. I'd be afraid to drink alcohol with some of the medications I'm on. And I LOVE wings!! Thank you!! God bless you!!
Thank you!!! I'll even give you a Roll Tide!! I am working on it!! I think I am doing good. But I tend to forget things tire me out more than they used to. Thank you again!! God bless you!!!
Oh I love it where I live!! We have a great view of the mountains and all. I appreciate the thoughts and prayers!! God bless you too my friend!!!!
I'm sorry, I thought I had posted I was an Auburn fan before. But it's all good. God bless you too my friend!!
Altoona is just how I like it, out in the sticks lol
Two thumbs up my friend!! I love it in the sticks!! Deer eat in my yard all the time.
Great to hear, bird. Glad it went well.

I probably just missed it, I knew you were a college football fan just never knew your squad for some reason
Well done, continued prayers and support from my family and I to you and your family! So glad to hear that you are making cancer your bitch!
Wolverine nation is praying for you. Make your next trip out to ruth's chris for a giant steak, that should give you some energy.
You can't beat that man, God's beauty at its finest
Keep fighting and thinking posetive War Eagle! I know what you mean about being tired. It took me about 3 months to get my stregth back after my surgery.
Thank you my friend!! I enjoyed myself! WDE!! I am really hoping to make a game this year!! I also want to see the Heisman statues, and my picture made with them!! God bless you my friend!!
It's ok, no worries! I just hope I have a reason to cheer this season! The last one was dismal to say the least!! I do hope I feel good enough to attend a game or 2 this season. I have given up on going to Talladeag to a race. I can't breathe if it's really humid outside! God bless you my friend! WDE!!
Thank you my friend!! I do appreciate the thoughts and prayers! Please send them my way Thursday of this coming week, 2-21-13, I got for another round of chemo then. My doctor seemed very pleased at how I am doing. And good luck to your wolverines this season!! I watch them play when I get the chance. I start @ 10:00 on Sat mornings, and usually go to bed around 2:00 am (watching west coast games) God bless you and your family!! Love you like my own family!!!
Thank you sir, and thanks to the Wolverine nation!!! My wife is a huge fan of the Olive Garden. So I usually go for her. I loaded up on the soup, salad, and breadsticks! I LOVE their breadsticks!! I a a huge fan of the Japanese resturants that cook in front of you!! I could eat a platter full of fried rice!!! I guess I'm weird!! But it is hard to beat a good steak! Chemotherapy just feels like it sucks your energy out of you. An investment I did recently make, I did buy me a leather recliner, and I LOVE it!!! I'll do my best to keep you all posted!! Take care, and God bless you and your family!!!
I have always been a country boy, and the day I looked at this property, I knew it was right for me! There was a pine thicket across the street from me, a man bought it, and cleared all the timber off of it, and I have an awesome view of the mountains now!! I will sit on the porch a lot of mornings (weather permitting) and drink coffee and watch the sun come up. God bless you my friend!!
Will do my friend!!! I don' know what it is about chemotherapy, but it just drains me!! I will drift off to sleep sitting straight up!! I have been like this almost 2 years now. It sucks, but it sure beats being sick, or losing all your hair and such. I just do what I can, as I can. And I am sure appreciative of all the thoughts and prayers!! I know I wouldn't be here without them!! And I do want to sincerely thank you and everyone on here that has prayed for me!! God bless you my friend!!!! WDE
Hey man. Just wanted to tell you that I pray for you just about every night since I first read your story. In a cruel turn of events I was diagnosed with leukemia on December 7th of last year. At the age of 26 (actually I turned 27 yesterday) it hit me by surprise but I am going to beat it. No questions asked I'm going to beat it. I've had three rounds of chemo so far and I agree they wear me out. Just know that you're an inspiration for me and I'm sure others out there who have seen your positive outlook. Thanks for your stories. War eagle and roll tide (I'm a Bama fan so that was tough for me to say).

Buddy, if you put your faith in the Lord, there isn't anything He can't do! I put my fate in His hands as soon as I got my diagnosis. If you ever, and I mean ever need anyone to talk to, you just give me a call! Send me a private message and I'll be glad to send you my number!! Now that I know about you, I will pray for you daily my friend! We are indeed brothers!! Happy late birthday!! Love you my brother!! Roll tide to you!!! May God bless you my friend!!!
