    Thanks so much for your kind thoughts. I wish nothing but the best for you as well. I've tried to not let this disease control my life. Am heading to Wyoming to do some fly fishing with my brothers next week.

    Hi, Deidre. All has gone well so far. I've had 5 infusions; my 6th and final will be this coming Friday, August 30. So far I've had no real side effects. After this next treatment the doctor will wait a few weeks and then do another cystoscopy to see if there has been any recurrence. I've got my fingers crossed. How have you been?

    Procedure or Surgery (Surgery): Had abdominal surgery on June 12 to remove additional cancer in the ureter between my bladder and left kidney. Doctor was able to find a clear margin before the kidney was at risk. Was able to leave the hospital the next day (surgeon had originally expected a hospital stay of 2-4 days). 18 staples and catheter removed on June 20. Stent will be removed on July 11. BCG treatments to begin later in July. Have received tremendous support from family and friends. Maintaining very positive attitude and outlook.
