    For BD

    I'm sure many of you are aware of Benny "Blues Dawg"'s recent battle with cancer. While I mostly "lurk" around here, I haven't seen much of him on the forum lately. I have been following his battle through his support link, but there hasn't been much there either.
    I hope all your thoughts and prayers are with him.
    Since I have already met my minimum fundraising goal, I feel comfortable saying this. In riding the 2009 Katelyn's Ride to support the Jimmy Fund/Dana Farber Cancer Institute, I will be dedicating the ride this year to the Dawg. This is NOT a solicitation for donations (I have removed that link from my signature), just me letting all of you and Benny that he is in our thoughts.
    I hope any of you doing any charity rides this year will consider riding in honor of Blues Dawg!

    George, I appreciate the kind thoughts and the gesture of riding in my honor. All the good vibes surely help.

    I've been around. I'm not riding a lot lately, so most of my posts are just me weighing in on some of the discussions, not my usual ride reports. I do need to update my "mylifeline" page to keep everyone up to date on my progress.

    I was making decent progress in my riding until a couple of weeks ago when I think I overdid it a little and got myself a little too tired. Also, the pollen has been bothering me more than usual this year. With my PET scan coming up tomorrow, I decided (with some encouragement from my wife ) to take a break from outdoor activities for a while so as not to irritate my sore throat any more than necessary. I don't want another false positive result. I'm ready to move on to the next phase of recovery.

    Thanks again for keeping me in your thoughts.
    The more you ride your bike, the less your ass will hurt.
