    Real life/true cancer joke.

    A number of years ago i spent an amount of time taking my (now late) father to Barnes Hospital in St Louis. For doctor visits, treatment, status checks addressing his battle with liver cancer. Which included a lot of MRIs and CAT scans.

    I once asked Pops if there was any danger having all those X-rays and scans?

    So the next time they took the back for an MRI he posed that question to the X-ray Technician doing the procedure. To which the Tech responded: "Well, you've already got cancer."


    My Dad and i both thought that was pretty funny.

    They told me i had cancer... and needed surgery and treatment right away. I laughed like hell.... They looked a bit confused which made it even a better joke. I laughed even more. I asked to hold treatment and sugery a month and they said... i dont seem to understand, i dont have a month. I laughed even more....

    they told me i was taking it too well.

    of which just make me laugh even more.


    cancer is not a joke.... it doesnt stop any of it from being funny as hell.

    It was the Oncologists at BJC in St. Louis that saved my life.

    And my husband was saved by goose poop! I believe I told the story but it's worth repeating. He was walking around the lake and he slid in goose poop. Turns out he lacerated his kidney so they kept him in shock trauma. The next morning the doctor said your kidney looks fine but it looks like you have bone cancer. Just like that. We were stunned. Bottom line is he had thyroid cancer and then they discovered lung cancer. Fortunately the lung cancer was unrelated so it wasn't metastasized. And they got them so early that he didn't need chemo or radiation. He keeps walking around the lake to thank the goose.
    That is why we went to the Galapagos with our daughter and her family. When we had gone the first time we kept saying how much the kids would love this. When he had this scare we both said, "we're taking them" and it was one of the greatest experiences of their lives as well as ours
    Thanks from HCProf
