But with Locker on the way, laughs will be arriving soon!

Nope locker...

A historical non-fiction work. The epic tale of the whaling ship Essex. Herman Melville based "Moby Dick" on their accounts.

He read it and gave it to me to read some years ago and asked that I pass it along to another climber so the book would keep in the climbing world, enlightening and engrossing more people. It had to have been 5-6 years ago. Would love to know where the copy of that book is today.

Yeah, called with 24 hours notice for appointment and treatment start date. Unbelievable.

Big thanks to Paul who will doing the driving, without him we'd be sunk this week! And Leigh-Ann for finding the solution, we had some heads together earlier as to how we were going to make this happen. Panic, frustration, aggravation, fear were common emotions but the Agent figured it out. Thank Heaven's!

St. Paul & Agent just left Casa de Pescado with the Blooter in tow. Loaded up for the trip to Colton for his first Radiation treatment this morning. Russ made him his standard egg breakfast to fatten him up for the trip.

Hoping the treatment doesn't have too many ill affects and only benefits! Here's to hoping for our good friend Blitzo. Keep the good thoughts coming peeps!

Paul. AKA Fabio.

Hehehe.

Heading to first radiation appointment. Keeping My fingers crossed that this will not be too hard on Blitzo's body.

I'm starting to feel so much more optimistic. Blitzo looks a hundred Times better today than he did a week ago. I was scared for him To leave that hospital but now I see that everything is working Out for the best. Being home with his amazing friends, Susan and Russ, Has supercharged his recovery. He's eating Susans excellent cooking. She Is keeping him handsome, and also bought him a kick ass Walker with a seat so he can exercise. Russ does the heavy lifting and has him in Excellent mood and spirit.

We have a long road ahead. 15 rounds of radiation and no idea how Hard this will be on his body. I'm researching the Gerson method online to See about the next steps after radiation. They have a clinic in San Diego. Might be a possibility this August.

Ultimate goals are to get through this radiation course and work towards healing. He will be getting busy this weekend on his blog. Donations have so far been used for laptop and will be further used for travel Expenses. Can not thank everyone enough for the cash. The cash also pays for Fabio and Fabio is there when Susan and I or Russ or Will cannot be. Not sure what we would do without him. He's a great kid!

I will post an update on how this first treatment goes but Will made a good point, the first Treatments are fairly easy. It's the later treatments that get hard. Keep sending the good vibes, love and prayers.

PS: Blitzofoto.com
Amanda will be uploading a sh#t ton of photographs today. Blitzo will work on writing the little ditties and stories over time. Keep checking back to see his additions. He will also forward to Facebook the photographs he really loves.

40 years of National park and Rock Climbing History. All out of his shoebox. Fecking Amazing!
