Thanks Jaybro and others but it's not necessary. Blitzo, he's like our pet and love him dearly.

Surgery removed the largest and most dangerous mass from his spine. They may return to surgery for at least one more. They used the word "oatmeal" with Blitzo while explaining what they found. He's a mess in there.

Multiple masses found throughout his body, so it's looking like Radiation is going to be the next course of action although the exact plan has yet to be determined.

Meanwhile, he's pretty comfortable and getting excellent care. Spirits vary between feeling pretty good in that he's getting great care and amazed in how it's like watching the show "House" on TV but this time it's him. He is a little down in that he knows now that he shouldn't have just skipped out on managing this disease but had no idea how quickly and bad things could get.

More to come, keep the good vibes coming. Those of you who have called & emailed, he's got tons of messages but too busy and exhausted to thumb threw them but a big thanks to everyone who cares. It means a lot to him.

Just talked to the Bloot. He sounds a little woozy from the pain meds, but sounds pretty good for a dude who just had surgery. Headed over there tonight after work to pay a visit. He also said that docs say his internal organs are in good shape, so that's encouraging.

For all you who know him, this is typical Blitzo...last Saturday he's telling me of his recent maladies, and says his legs are feeling funny and it feels like he's walking on Marshmallows.

"Well, that's weird, you been smoking salvia or something?" I kid him.
"Nah, but I did some reading on the internet and I think I've got anxiety...the marshmallow walk is a common symptom" he says.

And I'm thinking "Anxiety? WTF do you have to be anxious about? You're the least anxious person I know!"

Sounds like he will probably have more surgery in the near future. Keep Billy in your thoughts, this is going to be a rough road.

I've been away from the mainstream on S-T, but a friend pointed this out to me to "check it out!" Holy schizzle, Blitzo! Hope you can pull through all this; my thoughts are with you and I'll drink a beer (or several!) while thinking of you!

All the best!

Sooze, how about an addy so we can send him some cards. . .

more good vibrations are being sent to my friend Blitzo.

A cool guy I met a little late in the game, but who made a lasting impression on me.

Maybe it had something to do with the fact that Blitzo was the focus of Russ's endless one-liners while fixing up one of the Sooze & Russ homes.

To send a card or something:

Send it to me since we have people that will be going down pretty regular to the Hosp. If there is another address that will work better later, I'll post it up.

I met Blitzo just once in JTree a few months ago. We were both TRing stuff in Indian Palisades Corridor.

He was cool enough to stop dropping the F-bombs when my kids were around. I remember that. It's the little things.

My neighbor directly across the street went through chemo last year. It wasn't easy, but she got through it, and it worked.

Take care Blitzo and get well, hope to run into you again soon.
