• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

Grace under fire....

News from the front.

We've had a few days of allowing ourselves to be somewhat fragmented by this setback, we've both had a bloody good vent.

We're now reassembling for the challenge ahead. 18 weeks of chemo starting on the 1st April ( I know, you couldn't make this shit up could you?? )

I see the task quite simply. Suffering is an absolute unavoidable given, this is going to hurt my darling Lady in an enduring fashion.

It's my job, with whatever help I can muster, to keep sufferings bedfellow, misery, out of the picture.

That's where we are, the true nature of the enemy has revealed itself.

We are on our way again to meet it in the middle.

Once more unto the breach....the blast of war blows in our ears once again.

I'll be back in a day or so to reply to you each individually in the usual fashion, with my usual heartfelt thanks to each and every one of you.

Take care Lads.

;)

Oh man.
This totally sucks.
What can I say? Good luck. Keep fighting. I'm thinking and pulling for you.
You know the score Jim, you always have.

Thanks for those fantastic pictures, Audrey really enjoyed them and asked me to mention her to you.

I'll be in touch....

Take good care my dear Friend.

She and you have been an inspiration and a profile in courage in the face of adversity for so many of us on the forum.

You and her will never die.

You just change location.

God bless y'all.
Texas, man you have a way with words.

We look forward to meeting you one day, we really do.

Until then, stay close if you would, your import into this thread is inspiring.

From under English skies, love to you and your crew.

Prayers said. Hopes sent. Give her a kiss for me and the missus.
I puckered up yesterday, and got that " yeah, in your bloody dreams" look.

God loves a trier, allegedly.

Your hopes and prayers are gratefully taken Ren.

Hope all's ok your side - this is a two way street Mate.

Chin up Pal.

SOooo sorry to hear this news, MANY Thoughts and Prayers on the way (and staying that way)... if any couple can get through this you two WILL, Godspeed on the recovery, Blessings and Strength be with you both, KEEP PUNCHING !
Man, so good to hear from you, despite such trying conditions.

We had a long walk in the woods at the back of our house yesterday, and a good long old talk now that the scale of the task is beginning to firm up in front of us. It was like that scene in Apollo 13 where Tom Hanks asked the crew of his beleaguered craft..." Gentlemen, what are your intentions...?" Well our intentions are, despite this cancer pushing us around somewhat, to push it back. Not in a daft chest thumping bit of nonsense, full of piss and wind, but in a quiet, dignified, steely eyed manner. To quote the finest wordsmith in English to have ever picked up a quill, to be " Bold, Bloody and Resolute....laugh to scorn the power of (insert whatever comes to mind here!!) ..."

The mission is to get Audrey to the second week of August in one piece, I will fight for her every single second of it, every single one. And she knows it, such is the honour bestowed on me of living with the finest human being I'm ever going to know.

I appreciate you sticking around on this my Mate, I really do.

Very sorry to hear, Paul. It’s good you have each other in this.
A perfect Gentleman as usual Jeff.

We lack many things, but each other isn't one of them.

Love is the key, we have oceans of it.....

Take care Friend, and thanks.

I've not been on here for quite some time but something just compelled me to come here today and I saw your thread at the top of the page.

There's not a lot to add to what others have said Paul, except Audrey has the strength of hardened steel and I know you will be walking hand in hand through another unwanted journey with this evil aggressor. Needless to say you are both in my thoughts and you can give me a call or drop a text any time you want mate. Keep punching, all my love and best wishes to you both.
