Subject: BS: Rick's health Update
From: Rick Fielding
Date: 28 May 03 - 06:18 PM

Whew!

Well, if it's true that what doesn't kill you can only make you stronger, then I should be ready to bench press about five thousand pounds!

It's been an absolutely hell of a year health-wise around here, and I'll try to briefly (typing ain't a lot of fun these day) fill you in. As some of you know I've been fighting kidney cancer which has sort of bounced around since my kidney-removal operation last year. I'm currently on chemo-therapy and have had a "Porta-Cath" installed. It's like having a 'fire hydrant' implanted in yourself, when there's a fire....they just hook up the hose! I wear a belly pack with a computer-chemo-pump, and they just plug it into the 'porta cath'.

That's just the beginning!

So far this year, I've been:

irrigated four times (don't ask)

Probed up both wazoos by those dreaded steel rods with cameras!!

Endured successful bladder cancer surgery.

Three bone scans

Four MRIs

Four Ultra sounds

Two re-hydrations

****************************************************************

I'm pretty much of a loner when it comes to dealing with sickness (I absolutely HATE talking about ailments) so lots of good friends have had to deal with a minimum of information, and for that I apologize, but we all have our ways of coping. Some pray, some employ alternative healing techniques, and others go back to age-old remedies. I deal with a kind of "know yer body" approach, combined with LOTS of laughter and jokes (too many for some!!) and I'll probably get through this although it is no sure-thing, believe me. Whatever happens, I'm dealing with it as best I can. I may not be on Mudcat as much as before but I'll probably still give a look in every couple of days until this chemo is over (September)....hopefully then I'll get back to my favourite hobby on a regular basis.

Cheers and thanks

Rick

Someone once told me that cancer was the best thing that happened to them. Made them smell the roses etc. Me? I think I could have learned about the gift of life some other way, thank you very much. If folks want to smell something, I'll gladly let them have a whiff of my urine after a chemo treatment. Roses, yeh, that's what it reminds me of (@;->)!

Rick...I sympathise with not liking to talk about ailments--I hate it too. But you are dealing so valiantly, and I'm sure triumphantly, with such a heavy load, I'm glad you let us in on how it is and has been for you. You will be in my thoughts daily, and especially when I'm in dispair over worsening macular and hip joint degeneration. Seems very minor compared to what you are dealing with. Keep laughing...it is good medicine.

Please tell us what you can and can't eat (for example, my mother was sorry she had to give up broccoli and other cruciferous veggies when she was on chemo) so we can send along good wholesome recipes to tempt you.

I hope you know that my thoughts are with you Rick, as you deal with all of this, and also with Heather.

I was thinking about you a LOT this past week. I've been hanging out with a bunch of fine musicians and songwriters at the Kerrville Folk Festival, some of whom you know. JtS and I were sitting around the campfire at the Crow's Nest jam a couple of nights ago with Trevor Mills and Aengus Finnan (and several other very talented and funny people). I kept thinking about you and wishing you and Heather had been sitting there with us.

Hi Rick, you going through all this I'd bet Heather has gone through the same if not more (at least that's what happened in our house). I hope you're both well. Rick, sometimes I'm asked "how are you" & often I reply "any day I'm on my feet is a good day" & it's true, you & I could be elsewhere. Rick, you're a very lucky man & I hope that lucky streak lasts you at least another live time. Best to you both, Barry

Rick I feel the need to add a few comments to your post. In case your mind is caved totally as well, my comments are the ones in italics.


Well, if it's true that what doesn't kill you can only make you stronger, then I should be ready to bench press about five thousand pounds! Uh, yeah, well, don't count on it. In case your estimate is a bit off you could wind up with a double hernia on top of everything else

It's been an absolutely hell of a year health-wise around here, and I'll try to briefly (typing ain't a lot of fun these day) fill you in. Wonderful! Now I can quit lying to people who write and ask me about you! Also it generally takes about 4 or 5 of us comparing notes to figure out what is really going on anyway and this is an icredible pain in the ass.....as you are Rick....As some of you know I've been fighting kidney cancer which has sort of bounced around since my kidney-removal operation last year. This is the first time I recall hearing cancer compared to Flubber I'm currently on chemo-therapy and have had a "Porta-Cath" installed. Since Cletus, Paw, and the Reg Boys are in the porta-pottie business, Clete wanted me to ask if there was a way they might get in on this porta-cath business as well.... It's like having a 'fire hydrant' implanted in yourself, Did they also implant a Hook and Ladder truck? when there's a fire....they just hook up the hose! I wear a belly pack with a computer-chemo-pump, and they just plug it into the 'porta cath'. Now I have this mental image of a bunch of minaturized Dave Swans running around your innards squirting at balls of Flubber, a kind of conglomeration of "Backdraft" meets "Fantastic Voyage" with Pam Swan in the Raquel Welch part.

That's just the beginning!

So far this year, I've been:

irrigated four times (don't ask) I won't except to inquire whether you planted corn or soybeans.

Probed up both wazoos by those dreaded steel rods with cameras!! But aren't you happy that technology has kept pace? Otherwise it would be a Brownie Hawkeye on the end of wrought iron railing.

Endured successful bladder cancer surgery. Have you noticed that the surgery is the easiest part of these things?

Three bone scans I have only ONE bone I want scanned, Frankly this ain't nothin' but a good pickup line...."Hey Nurse.....Could you scan my bone for me?"

Four MRIs Manly Ruminant Insertions? Listen Rick, there ain't nothin' manly about shagging sheep regardless of what Kendall says. The Llahma ain't too manly either........

Four Ultra sounds Geeziz Keyriced!!!....You had to sit through four Ted Nugent concerts as well? Well hell, I dunno'......I suppose you needed something to do while shaggin' the sheep.

Two re-hydrations Actually I'm surprised it wasn't four what with the Nugent concerts and nailing the sheep and all.....

****************************************************************

I'm pretty much of a loner when it comes to dealing with sickness yeah, but how are you with perversions? (I absolutely HATE talking about ailments) so lots of good friends have had to deal with a minimum of information, No shit? Do ya' think? See the section above about your friends comparing notes....geeziz.....and for that I apologize, but we all have our ways of coping. Next time try a saw Some pray, some employ alternative healing techniques, and others go back to age-old remedies. I deal with a kind of "know yer body" approach and after you learned your body you were completely disgusted weren't you?, combined with LOTS of laughter and jokes (too many for some!! It's not the quantity Rick, it's the quality) and I'll probably get through this although it is no sure-thing, believe me. I should hope not!!! Otherwise our entire betting pool is thrown into a cocked hat and I'm pretty heavily invested..... Whatever happens, I'm dealing with it as best I can. Yeah right...As far as I can tell your treatment seems to consist of tiny El Swannos hosing Flubber while you bang sheep at Ted Nugent concerts. I dunno'.....it may work out for you!! I may not be on Mudcat as much as before but I'll probably still give a look in every couple of days until this chemo is over (September) Okay Rick, here's the deal....If you're feeling great, post ONE dozen times a week; if you're feeling poorly, post TWO dozen times a week; if you're dead, post THREE dozen times a week....hopefully then I'll get back to my favourite hobby on a regular basis.   Say what? Hobby? You're already bangin' the sheep ferchrissakes...

Ah, Rick, as I have said, you just reverse the charges any time you might want to talk. It does seem that many of us are on similar but different roads. (Lately, I wish I had a perma-cath.) ;-) Since being diagnosed they tell me all I need do is get a P.S.A. blood test every six months. Just watch the situation close.

You know you've got my best wishes for a complete turnaround.

When you read these lines from the Mudcat people, you'll find a lot of affection, but when you read Paw's comments, you'l find a lot of affection and a good laugh, which is the best medicine.

Thanks guys and gals1

And Escamillo....great to hear from you. The rest of the folks are my familiar Mudcat buddies but I don't see your name around much. Hope things are going as well as they can wayyyyy down South.

Hi Jerry....I've got nothing against God, just his wealthy TV Scamsmen and his prominent Political icons who always manage to do the wrong thing. Had Billy Graham marched with King almost half a century ago, instead of feeding info to J. Edgar Hoover, I might have been a Church-goer myself now, rather than a cynic, ha ha!

*******************************************************************

Another reason for keeping mum on quite a few details was simply the business I'm in. Word spreads fast to agents and you don't want them to think you're unreliable.
BUTTTT... the fact is...I've had to cancel a whole British tour (Put together in many ways by Roy Harris, Bill Sables, and harvey Andrews, as well as Heather) and numerous American gigs. I simply have had to be near Toronto for my treatments. If I get through this, boy, am I gonna have one gala tour!

*********************************************************************

I've figured out that thanks to the Canadian Health system I've recieved well over 250 thousand bucks worth of treatment including specialists, medicines, and big expensive machines. As anyone here knows, it's far from perfect (there can be long waits) and it may be on it's last legs as we're forced into an American economy. By the way, if I lived in the States, it would have been game over very early. Income-wise, we'd be close to the bottom of the barrel, and once the house was sold to pay for the initial kidney operation, we'd be completely up shit creek.

******************************************************************

Anyway, I'm in no pain, I'll find out at the end of August whether the chemo has actually done any good, and in the mean time, I've been lucky enough to be around for another great summer sittin' out back in the garden (which Heather is busy workin' on....should be in great shape in another two weeks) playin' banjo, and sayin' 'hello' to whoever drops by that day. It could be worse!

Mudcatter support means a lot.

Cheers

Rick

Our thoughts and prayers Rick, to you and yours!

Haven't been around here as much as I used to be so somehow I missed this news, to my regret. Anyway, hang in there mate!

Peace, Mike.

Then there was the urologist who sang the blues.

Urethra Franklin.

I told that to mine before my TURP and she dropped her roto-rooter.

Again, be well !

Fuck you Gargoyle!!!! You're such a shit....but I never would have believed you'd also be such a traitorous shit as well!!!

Damn it Greg, for the past FOUR YEARS you have been wishing me happiness in my imminent demise. And now, after all this time you toss me aside like an old shoe in favor of Rick! I can't believe it!!! All those postings in which you sent your most fervent hopes for me to soon be planted and now you go for Rick instead!!

I ask you, outside of great talent, what's he got that I ain't got? Do you give up so easily or what? With this traitorous act you are shedding any semblance of credibility you have established. If you crap out so readily looking for greener pastures than I suggest you go piss up a slack rope!!!! I suppose I can get used to your new policy of sharing but it won't be easy!!!

On the other hand, I can't help but notice that after your best efforts I am still alive after four years and this bodes well for Rick! I figure he has at least a minimum of four years and now with your new "Sharing the Death Wish" policy, probably a lot longer since you will be even less effective. I mean seriously Garg, you've become almost a talisman or a healing elixir of bad wishes.

Okay Rick, I'll share.....No telling how long we can each extend things as long as Greg keeps up his negative thoughts!

Awright, wait a minute here........Which one of my fellow well meaning clones deleted Garg's crappola? I saw it earlier but couldn't take the time to respond at the time and now it's gone!!!

GREAT GOOGLY-MOOGLY!!!! Rick really needs those venomous thoughts!!! Don't you see how well they've worked for me? How can Rick and I expect longevity without Greg's vitriol?

Oh well, I guess it's enough to know that he has them........

If you missed them Rick, they were just the usual Gargashit with a touch of doom and gloom thrown in. Probaably good for at least an extra year at the very least!

Rick, September, eh?
That means I can put you down to play in a foursome with Big Mick, Steve Latimer and myself at the first annual Michigan Irish Festival and Golf Tournament/Cookout/Ceili, September 12, 13 and 14?
'Spaw promised to caddy for you, although I'm not sure I'd want him near my bag and balls, if you catch my drift.
Gargoyle has offered to be the tee.
So hit the range now, move the medical paraphernalia to one side, and groove that swing, sir.

All my best to you and Heather.

Seamus

PS Why do dogs lick their dicks?
Because they can't make a little fist.

LMAOWROTF!! What my dawg does!! Oh, Seamus!

Spaw, it weren't me...I saw it and actually thought it was a teeny-tiny bit thoughtful, I mean after all, has goylegarg EVER offered to work up a dirge for you?!! Ah, fuck it, you can share and I'll even offer to clean up the litter all by myself! Anything to keep the two of you around for a LONG TIME. Which brings me to that old Scottish blessing, lang may yer lum reek...which I reckon Heather being a Glasgow gel probably has heard a time or two, but I am thinking of it in a whole new light, what with all you fellers talking about your willies and all. So...to you and Rick, in the tradition of those old double-entendre blues, Lang may your lums reek! if ya get my drift.**bg**

Rickdarlin'...I hope you haven't split a gut getting this lot going in rare form, again! The sanctum has been fired up each and every night for the past almost year and I know those thanksgivings are not for naught, so look ahead and make your plans. You and Heather are in our thoughts and hearts, always and we look forward to getting together with you when we're both doing better!

luvyabunches,

kat
