    WooHoo! A few of you know that I have had a small battle with Seminoma (Testicular) Stg 1 Cancer for the last two years. I'm am so pleased and psyched to report that I made the two year mark and I'm in full remission:) :) :) :) It's been one heck of a ride but let me tell ya never give up hope people there is always a light at the end of the tunnel,
    Anyway I had to share it with a few of you that have been nothing but concerned.
    Now I can plan that TalkBass New England get together along with the rest of my life.
    Thanks to everyone here at TB that have sent me emails and the good wishes. This site has been a intrigul part of my recovery for the last few years.
    Thanks all
    Henry

    Thank you all for your support and wishes, I'm so psyched! Life is going to be pretty normal now, I'm still on the 5 year plan where I have to go every three months for Blood work and X-Ray's, But that's a piece of cake compared to the Rad treatments and the monthly regiment of CT scans Ultra sounds and all the other poking and proding, Now I'll be on the three month plan, CT scan once a year Xray's every three months and after next year the 4 month plan. Yeeeeaaaahhhh Baby!
    What a huge milestone for me to beat this thing and now have a 99% chance of it never coming back.
    :cool:
    I'm sorry Max I never really talked about it and tried to keep life as normal as possible, Kept working and playing music through the whole thing.
    Tha't why the GO! Album is so special to me cause I was diagnosed two weeks before our first studio date. I recorded the whole record going through that BS. Tons of emotion on that album.

    We are ready to record the follow-up which will be a much more fun time, Indeed!

    Thanks again everybody.
