Next step, escape from MSKCC.
Great to see you post John, just don't pull a Nic and scare the janitor:)
thanks for posting!
Hope you get some good news and I hope that's all you have to deal with. Great to hear your escaping, thanks for updating.

Grab a clip board and a white coat. The exit will be easy.

How'd you do that? Cracked your cranium this morning and you are posting in the same day. Good grief, do you just have a zipper in the general area?
So glad to see that you are in recovery mode. I would help bust you out if I could.
Take good care and try to be good to your noggin. K.

What a relief to see you posting so soon again! This "newbie" is overjoyed! I shared your postings with my husband, your strength impresses him and he is now signed up on this discussion board. Watch for his postings... baby steps I say... (FatBoy04).
Get well soon as I look forward to future discussions with you.

Just Keep on Hanging In
That's so funny -- only because I actually did it in 2007! Got dressed, said I was going downstairs for a coffee, then bolted and went to my friend's house and had a couple of drinks of rum and coke. Came back by suppertime, nurses had changed shift, so no one was the wiser. Hope your escape runs as smoothly. :>) Great to see you posting so soon. Take care!
