torn_: The key to happiness is to make the best of things. I play dominoes and bingo with all these elderly people in the nursing home who can't hear a damn thing. I roll up and down the halls in my wheelchair when the IV isn't connected and flirt with the nurses. Women love flirting with gay guys. Am I right ?

I bought a Trivial Pursuit game for this place and they scheduled a game with me hosting the first Monday in March. My vocal cords are shot from radiation treatments and these people are deaf. Should be fun.

Best thing is, I just bought and downloaded Visio. I'm a master at Visio, I can create anything. I'm start with an invitation for all my friends to join me in one year to visit these to two sites: If I get enough interest I'll charter a Greyhound bus.

Kind of a Bucket List thing.

Now go and enjoy what you got, and love the one you're with...

That is Art Bell (deceased) Ian Punnett and George Noory.

I thought it was funny.

torn_: Cancer's a bitch, then you die. I thought I had this thing beat but it's still there and there is nothing I can do about it, for now. December 9th I felt so sore in my neck and shoulders I went to the emergency room. I spent the next 2 months in the hospital and now I'm in a nursing home.

Turns out the radiation treatments and chemotherapy I had earlier last year caught up to me in a very unpleasant way. I had pneumonia in my left lung and a nasty bacteria in my spine and bones.

With that fixed, I was sent home only to return 4 days later for emergency surgery for a peptic ulcer. Then a spinal surgery to repair my C6 and C7 discs which radiation nearly rotted away. I missed Christmas and New Years while recovering on drugs. I wouldn't wish this on anyone.

The bacteria in my spine and bones came back so I'm in a nursing home where they can administer antibiotics through an IV three times a day. I should get out on the 11th of March. Next week I get like my 6th of 7th MRI and god knows what they'll find. Something good I hope.

Once I'm fixed they can begin to treat the cancer again. I just want to go home and be with my cat Boxer, and someday be able to drink a glass of water.

torn_: I'm doing fine, I guess, this year has been a blur, and I've missed you.

It started with a tumor that made it so I couldn't swallow but radiation removed the tumor and replaced it with scar tissue which makes it so I can't swallow. My esophagus has been stretched twice and I can now swallow liquid and applesauce. I get another stretch next week, I should be eating again soon.

The fun part is when they drip Midazolam and Propofol into my IV, it's like flipping a light switch and I'm out. No dreams, no memory, nothing until they shake my shoulder and wake me up. Michael Jackson never should have messed with that shit.

During this year I lost my Wire Gold so no more trivia, I doubt I'll ever buy more.

So, see ya, welcome back.......

torn_: Hello people. I had an Upper Endoscopy (camera down my throat) today and the tumor is gone. So they stretched my esophagus open a bit and now I can swallow water. You have no idea how delicious a glass of ice water is until you haven't had one in over 8 months.

I go back in two weeks for another stretch. I just may be eating by Thanksgiving!

torn_: Not sure if I posted this already but sugarhoney was asking so...

Two weeks ago I had a PET scan and the cancer appears to be gone. There is still a faint orange glow so they'll probably test me again before this year ends.

But I still can't swallow. This is how the problem began, I haven't had anything to eat or drink since before last Christmas. I live on a formula called Jevity 1.5 pumped through a tube directly into my stomach.

It is most likely that the 35 radiation treatments I had to kill the cancer cells also killed my throat muscles. So they've given me exercises to do, which include saying the letter E out loud and raising it to a high register for as long as I can.

If you see that weirdo on the subway singing the letter E endlessly, it's me.

torn_: General Hospital - Update

This story has been going on for 7 years, unbelievable. Remember Drew Cain and Jason Morgan are twins separated at birth. As adults, they were both abducted by the Cassadines who put Drew's memories on a flash drive and copied Jason's memories into Drew. For a while, we had two Jason Morgans.

Drew had the flash drive but refused to use it because he would then forget the past five years he spent with his long lost 16-year-old son Oscar, who just recently died of a brain tumor.

Now cult leader Shiloh has the flash drive and is planning on uploading it into Jason.

I can't stand this. One day Cameron Webber went to grade school as an eight-year-old and came home from high school as a sixteen-year-old. Yet it's taking 7 years for this Drew/Jason story to unfold and it ain't done yet.

torn_: I'll keep this as short as possible.

I've been away from Wire this year because in February I was diagnosed with a malignant tumor in my esophagus. After 35 radiation treatments and 6 chemotherapies, I've been resting and recovering. The chemo was not so bad but the radiation, not so good. They're actually killing you to save your life.

July 18th I get tested to see what we've accomplished.

The worst part for me is my new cat Box has bonded more with Chris than with me because I've been away so much.

I'm not looking for sympathy, I just thought I owed my friends an explanation.

Take care all, and love the ones you're with.

torn_: General Hospital - Update

Sorry to keep you all hanging for so long but, Drew Cain finally after 6 years got the flash drive with his memories before he was programmed to believe he is Jason Morgan.

The problem is if he downloads it he will forget the past 5 years of his life and his 16-year-old son Oscar who is dying from a brain tumor.

This could not come at a worse time as there is a serial killer in Port Charles. Don't go bobbing for apples. That's where they found Mary Pat's head!

Oh the drama
