When fear kicks in

No one knows what its really like to go through someone else's pain. So I know that my struggle has been similar to someone else's but still to them it was the toughest and really thing in they ever went through. To me I am now experiencing the realest thing that I have gone through. But its the unknown that is the scariest part. Yes my chemo treatment is about to intensify but what does that really mean. The medicine gets stronger but what side affects will take place? Maybe none maybe a few. those are the scary aspects and of course whether or not this thing works.

Start Your Engines

I had a scan today before my chemo treatment and was told that there has been some progress in the treatment but not enough to continue on the same path. My dosage has just been upped and there will be a more aggressive approach. We are still looking for a full recovery though. Look, I can't even front this shit just got scary but I am confident that I will be able to push through and make it to the finish line. I pray to God that this will pass and that I am strong enough to get through any type of treatment. Thank you for the continued support and love. NEVER QUIT

BEST NIGHT

Last night was a true treat. I attended a concert for activision at the staples center that featured Usher, Eminem, Rihanna, NERD, SoundGarden and Janes Addiction David Guetta and Dead mouse and Tool among others. It was an epic night. It felt good to go back home to LA and be in the element again. Living. The weather was perfect about 80 with no humidity. I love LA- I didn't get to see all my peeps but I did see my lady and some of my closest friends. Still I felt close to those that I love and didn't get a chance to see.

LA JUNE GLOOM but Sun still shinning

Was traveling all day yesterday going back to Cali. A friend flew me in yesterday so that  I could get some work done by attending two events back home in LA. Last night was an Xbox event that featured the new sensor box where you play and there are no remote controls at all. The system senses your body movements. IT WAS SICK!!! I can't tell you all how good it feels to be back home and in the working element while having fun.

MOMS

Thank God for moms. I just need to say that I love my mom and appreciate her more than anything in the world. She has been by my side for the last 31 years with her faith in me but she has literally been by my side for the last two and a half months battling this disease with me hand in hand. Cooking me the appropriate foods and making sure that I have all my meds at the right time. Without her I would be lost. Thank you mom for all of you hard work, dedication and friendship and love. You have become a driving force to the finish line. I love you. Never Quit

its hot

Don't know if you have ever been to the south in the summer time but its a different type of hot. The type where you can walk out fully energized and within minutes be completely zapped of your energy. This is going to take some time to get used to. Other than that feeling good today. Going to run and take care of some errands- finish up some reading and rest. Almost feeling back to normal since the surgery two days ago. I know it was only minor but they had to do it twice so its still a little sore. Minor mistake.. Can;t wait to be able to work out again!. Never Quit
