*Stay Tuned* - Results back from CT scan, receiving chemo right now, and last couple of days have been kinda difficult. I will update you all and let you know where everything stands after getting some MUCH NEEDED rest.
I am hanging in there, folks, still fighting and when I feel a bit stronger and get some sleep I'll bring you all up to speed.
Everyone - thank you for all the prayers and love! I love you back and everything you're doing is making all the difference in the world! Keep it coming, God bless each and every one of you. ❤️❤️❤️ -Jeff

And so far, it seems to be ANOTHER good day... Four in a row!
My pain is manageable. My digestive system is working. I am not writhing in pain or overcome with anxiety. I can eat eggs and toast and throw my feet up, watch football all day if I want and spend this day appreciating every moment with my beautiful family.
I have much to be grateful for, and I am. Things are not perfect and I don't expect them to be - so there's absolutely no reason to worry or complain or whine. I won't and I won't listen or tolerate it from others today.
Apparently, I have been given another day of reprieve in this wild storm that has been my life for the past few months.
Friends, family, loved ones, interested bystanders - I cannot explain why things have so dramatically changed in these past several days. And I don't need to. I am simply letting this day happen and enjoying every second of every moment and being happy.
I will NOT be defined by cancer, illness, or any other negative thing that has interfered with my quality of life lately. No way.
This day is another unexpected gift, free from all the madness that has tried and failed to limit my ability to just be alive and happy.
I am #winning. I am grateful. I am ALIVE and actually living and loving. Today I will show up and kick ass and live my destiny with strength and determination.
My journey continues and today is all there really is - and I will not squander it. It's my responsibility to take the next minute and live it like it's the last. I am doing that RIGHT NOW.
Chicago Style hot dogs and all the goodness of poppy seed buns, tomatoes, bright green relish, yellow mustard, sport peppers, Vienna dogs, a decent dill spear and just the right kick of celery salt await me.
I am going to OWN today!!!
Thank you, everyone, I love you all and may Heavenly Father bless your day with just as much goodness and reasons to be happy and alive that I have been given for this day. It is only here once and I will live and love it to its absolute fullest.
I wish the same for you! ❤️😎🔥 --Jeff

Mark this moment down right now, this very instant - and listen to what I am saying... this is BIG.

My pain level right now is ZERO.
For the first time in many months, for whatever reason, I am feeling NO PAIN IN MY BODY ANYWHERE.
I don't know how long this will last - minutes, hours, maybe the rest of this day - but folks, I am not feeling any pain at all and I honestly cannot remember when that last happened or what it felt like.
This is an amazing moment and I am sharing it with every single one of you! You are magnificent and I am so grateful to have all of you on this journey with me.
The last few days have been good ones and no matter what may or may not lie ahead for me, I will cherish this moment with happy tears and all the gratitude I can muster!
All of you are INCREDIBLE and AMAZING and I love all of you... thank you, everyone, and let's hope and pray that more of these days are on their way. ❤️❤️❤️
