View Full Version : Howdy Ya'll Guess Who's Back

Thats right Im back.Maybe a little smaller and with a different mind set but I am back.

It took almost 5 months to kick Leukemia in the ass but I did it with the support of my loving wife and the support and prayers from the paintball community.

I want to thank everyone that provided that support because I would not be here if it wasnt there.

I am sure I am not the only one here that may have gone through this but I will tell you, I was in the most pain I could ever imagine. I hurt so bad during my second treatment that I wanted to die but the uplifting words from all of you guys and girls along with my wife I made it through.

I pretty much died once and almost a second time. The doctors had even told my wife to prepare but during the time that I was so close to death it was funny I took a little trip.

I looked up and saw the devil and he was holding his hand out. I looked him squre in the eye and told him that if he wanted me there was gonna be a fight and that he would rather walk through a lions deal with porkchop underwear then mess with me and he looked at me and kicked me out. On the way out allI heard was that guy is dangerous and if he stays here he will take over and I cant have that LOL.

So as the story goes I am back and ready to be a pain in the butt again.

Again I want to thank everyone that send me cards and emails and things to focus on to help me get through this.

You guys are the best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
