A good day for Green, which swung well below 4,000 in the Amazon rankings. I'm not complaining.

Not such a good day for me. Cancer followup today was sobering. I have an oncologist appointment on Friday to expand on all this. We're closing in on a treatment plan. I'll talk more about it once I've processed this stuff a bit better, both mentally and emotionally.

The people I love are taking care of me. I can ask no more than that.

Good luck on your treatment plan. You have to believe you'll be ok, and of course -- your loyal fans are rooting for you too!

At least my two rounds with cancer so far have merely been basal cell and merely required outpatient surgery. So, you're a stronger man than I am, I don't think I could have managed what you have been through.

Well damn. Cancer just sucks all the fun out of book releases.

Sorry about the lousy day. I'm glad you're working out a treatment plan, but the whole thing sucks. Thinking good thoughts for you, as always.
