Just Shmooze / Re: What Did You Dream Last Night?
« on: November 04, 2018, 12:12:26 AM »
wow and how you feeling now?

Had a tumor. Was found malignant.

Went into surgery with the full understanding that there's only a 50% chance of a successful removal, and that many things can go wrong internally.

Tumor was removed, but my insides didn't heal properly and I had some pretty bad internal scar tissue developing.

Two years later, cancer is back, this time jumping straight to Stage 3. Test show that the tumor had gotten to within millimeters of my lung's lymph nodes, but that it had hit the old scar tissue and was forced to detour.

If not for the botched surgery, I'd be dead today.

Rosh Hashana some years ago, dreamt that I got cancer. I'm not the type to get freaked out about dreams, but this being RH and all I was kinda spooked.

By the time Rosh Hashana rolled around the next year I was in the middle of chemo.

The difference is that mine aren't tied to any account.

In any case, it's a moot point.

There are an awfully small number of about whom all of those statements are true, just saying.

LOL

No need to get all salty, I wasn't really doubting that you were a well known DDFer but if you're going to post something that's clearly against the rules, maybe you should mention that you cleared it with Dan first. Also, whoever you are, I probably like you as well

You do, salty or not ;)

And BTW, certs are not explicitly against the rules, but rather a gray area. There are countless threads selling all kinds of airline certs. Being that AA is oftentimes a special case, I thought it prudent to clear it ahead of time.

If you're really a well known DDFer, you should know that the selling of upgrade certs is not allowed here anymore. Frankly I'm surprised this thread still exists, the mods are off their game today.

Thanks for reminding me of the rules, I'm glad DDF is in good hands. For the record - and not that it matters at all, TBH - I have more posts, likes, and HTs than you, and have been around for many years longer.

And if you're really curious, I actually cleared this topic with Dan beforehand. So there.

Now if you want to buy some upgrades, PM me and I'll give you a good deal. I still like you.

I'm scheduled to go to Kauai on April 2 with my wife, and something came up (woman related issue) Is it still worth the trip?

When my doctor told me I need to start chemo within the week or I'll die.

As of last month, I'm officially considered cured.
