One Down, Five to Go

Thanks to everyone for your words of care and support.  That's the kind of thing that will help get me through this.  Everything went about a smoothly as these things can go, but now you're going to have to get ready for Bald Bill and Other Possible Bills, depending on how the side-effects play out.  "Everybody's different," they keep telling me, so we won't know what's going to happen until it happens.  Or doesn't happen.  Thanks again, and the blog will run as usual tomorrow, I think.

Bald is beautiful, always in my prayers Pal.

Best wishes for a smooth chemo ride. Generally, chemo treatments are a lot less brutal nowadays.

Todd Mason said...

I hope all the optimistic reassurances prove out.

Hey, we can compare bald heads, Bill. God Bless, and take care of yourself. Give it the good fight. We're behind you.

Didn't Jeff see Bald Bill open for the Fabulous G-Strings?

Good luck with the next five!

Remember, you can always start sucking a lollipop and asking, "Who loves ya, baby?"

Sounds like the biggest hazard was listening to the morons in the waiting room.

Keep the faith. We will too.

One down, one at a time, we're here to cheer you on.
Beanies and kitties will keep your head warm, if needed. >^..^<
Sending good thoughts your way!

You can do this standing on your bald head. Just don't get rug burn up there. Best wishes, old sock.

I have a lot of 2nd-hand experience with Cancer, which is the best kind, and everyone IS different. Just remember what I said about addressing problems to your doctor. As had as being bald, well you get no sympathy from me. In fact, you folks who get your hair back kinda get on my nerves.

Hello Mr. Crider, I just found this news and was very sorry but hope is in my heart for you. God can do great things and I will pray for your recovery. Your books have been great companions of mine and I have enjoyed so much each and everyone. As I wrote you once, when I first started ready your books, you would be one of my favorite writers and you are. I'm a expatriate living outside of Amsterdam and your writing
takes me to my roots. Write me and all your friends and fans many more BOOKS dear Bill.
Sincerely, Larry Brown

Bill Crider said...

Thanks, Larry. It means a lot to hear from someone so far away who's reading my books.

It has been with a HUGHE sigh of relief, with your updates over recent months and to see you will be doing so well (and that it turned out treatment is going to help).

You have a lot of friends, you know, pulling for you, and deservedly so!

Hey, bald ain't so bad. Next time we're together we can put our heads together and make an ass out of ourselves. Keep on rockin, Bill.
