    unless something drastic happens.. I turn 48 this saturday , march 25... i consider a miracle in itself and I just wanted to openly thank God the Almighty, my Lord and Him whom i live for , for the blessing. And also thank you brothers for all your support throughout my trials and tribulations. I truly love you all and wish upon you ALL the Lord's blessings.
    As it turns out, i will spend my birthday doing what i love most, playing bass all day. I have 2 shows that evening and an all day awards show at the theater, seeing as to I will be coming right out of my bi-weekly chemo treatment ( wed and thurs ) I pray to the Highest that He provide me with the strength and stamina to meet the demands. He has always shown up, so I trust He will again, as always. PRAISE AND GLORY TO GOD!
    love you guys, Adrian

  11. I got some bad news today, and am incredibly sad as a result. I am, however, happy that you are with us inspite of all you've gone through. I expect to see you here in 10 years. Don't let me down!

    Vaya con Dios, mi amigo.

    That's awesome Adrian. It's amazing how you can forget your "troubles" while you're playing. I can be tired as all get out, but if there's a jam, I'm there. Been praying for you, bro! Will do so again tomorrow while I'm gettin' my chemo.

    God bless you, Adrian. You are a trooper. A lot of people would hang it up after what you've been through the past few months. Rock on!:bassist:

    Been praying for you too, :rolleyes:. Glad to hear that you are hanging in there as well!:cool:
