Good luck, Bill. You have to come out of this okay. You'll be in my thoughts.

Cap'n Bob said...

I'm appalled, shocked, disgusted, dismayed, and devastated. I hope whatever it is is treatable and you'll be with us a long, long time.

SteveHL said...

Good luck with the biopsy. In any case, there are good treatments for lymphoma now.

CNM said...

Oh, no. I hope you get some much-needed good news. 2016 needs to just quit being so %&$#*! Take care.

Keeping my fingers crossed. My sister-in-law had lymphoma a couple of years ago, but treatment put her in remission with no trace of the disease, so the outlook seems good. Hang in there and get well soon.

I know you don't need any advice or platitudes on the topic of cancer but we're thinking about you. Like my Dad told me when I was diagnosed: "Whatever you do, don't discount the possibility that everything will be fine."

The only logical outcome is that we discover Bill Crider's blood is the cure for cancer. I can't see it happening any other way.

Get up, buster!
