OT-thanks Mgoblog

Submitted by ggoodness56 on February 29th, 2012 at 1:58 AM
I just wanted to say thanks to all of you. The last couple of months I have spent in the hospital trying to overcome cancer. I was in the hospital for most of December and January dealing with surgeries. This blog and the creative guys who run it have provided a lot of insight and humor (at times a distraction) that have helped the tough days of rehab go by. If you think the blog is funny you should read it on a morphine drip. I'll never forget in my darkest hours, Kirk Cousins getting destroyed by you all. From a fellow fan, thank you!

Reading comments like these makes one realize sometimes in life, the small things make all the difference in the world. Wishing you a speedy cancer free recovery.

thanks to Dr. Drucker at OHSU and the chemo therapy that I take daily at little cost thanks to the Veteran's Admin., I'll probable die of something else. It will be nice some time in the future when there are no more diseases like cancer, but until that time, many people will still have to suffer and go through expensive therapies.

Families suffer right along with the victims. All of us as fans enjoy MGoBlog and the wonderful creativity of Brian and others here, and it really is a great diversion that lightens the load for many of us while being highly informative and often humerous.

Glad you are hanging in there and continuing the fight. That must be a real trip on a morphine drip. Like others, I often find myself laughing at things I read here apart from the deeper aspects of the sporting analysis we all feed on.

I join with others here in wishing you well.

I may not know you but my prayers are with you. Get well soon! I had a young friend on my high school hockey team who's life was cut short because of a rare blood cancer :(. Keep fighting guy!

I'm wishing you a full and speedy recovery!
Just a thought, but would you ever be willing to write a diary on your story? I'm sure a good amount of people would be interested in reading it if it wouldn't be too much trouble.

I would love to write a diary, being that I'm 33 and there were a lot of things I learned I could pass on to each of you. It was of course all a big surprise. With that said, my beautiful wife is due with our first baby today (son Jordan), so I am obviously gonna be concentrating my strength and focus there. But in due season for sure!

We take so much for granted.  I've been having great days of late and reading your post helped me to put it back in perspective.  My prayers go out to you and your family for a speedy and full recovery kind sir.

Soda crackers and vernors got me through chemo in a reasonable comfort.  I've been in remission for 5 years and currently see the doc every three-six months for bloodwork and followup.  I have harry cell luekemia, which turns out to be very treatable. 

My doctor says I was very fortunate not to have been born 30 years earlier.

Again, good luck and I'll be thinking about you.

We have your back pal. Keep your head up and I am glad the board's humor has helped you battle your illness. Keep on trucking and kick cancer's ass. Just keep in mind how we beat Ohio this year and that will get you through this!
