    JaxSon, man that shit really sucks. I was diagnosed with bladder cancer in January 2012. I filled the toilet with blood one night and that was really hard to ignore. Like you I was fortunate in that it, thankfully, hadn't escaped the bladder wall. I fully understand the fear and heartache this brings to everyone who loves you and the mind destroying this diagnosis brings with it. My cancer is the most aggressive type so it has never been "if" it comes back but "when" it comes back, and it has many times. For the first few years I had tumors cut out 2, 3 or even 4 times a year so yes it really did feel like Grand Central Station down there. On the bright side some of those nurses were very pretty (wink, wink). BCG treatments, burning sensations, poor bladder control, hell I've been through the ringer even had blood clots completely block my urinary tract ( that one took morphine and emergency surgery, nothing like waking up in the cancer ward) But throughout all of that and more, I never lost faith.
    I guess that's my point, never lose faith. I haven't had a tumor in over a year, no surgeries in a little longer than that and my cystography's have been reduced from every 3 months to every 6 months. Did I tell you that I hate that F'n BCG shit? Really don't like it, always ends up sending me to the ER, usually about week 5, so I've been refusing it. Foolish of me? well probably but so be it. Bye the bye, I am otherwise strong and healthy. If I can do this thing, I have every faith that you can too.

    How about some good news. Latest biopsy results shows no sign of cancer. I was facing that BCG routine if things turned out differently. I was also thinking about refusing that. As it stands now, I don't have to worry about that.
    Another bit of good news, my 28 year old daughter is getting married for the first time next week.
    Life is good.
