I went to see my buddy Jeff yesterday. In a word, hard. He's really weak from the daily radiation treatment and it's knocking him for a loop. The treatment for the cancer, bio chemo every 3 weeks for 4 hours a pop....is killing him, literally. He's frail and is in bed a lot. I fucking hate seeing him this way and I told him as much. I got all welled up...he just took it like a man.
I'm gonna spend some time with him Saturday....gonna take that all in and bank it for sure.
I don't know what to say about it anymore....I don't want to trivialize it but the best analogy I can think of is the video below. At about 3:20 in is where it's at for Bates...
Dragline (cancer): "Stay down, you're beat.."
Luke (Bates): "You're gonna have to kill me..."
I can't put it any better than that.... Fuck yeah...get some Bates.
If you pray...throw one out there to the ether for him.
