This is kind of a second home for me and at some point I won't be here.
I've been diagnosed with a malignant esophageal tumor. We're waiting on the biopsy report to proceed but from what I read this is a pretty aggressive cancer with low to medium life expectancy. I'm pretty zen about the whole thing and at least will have an opportunity to put my life in order.
Other than a difficulty in swallowing, weight loss (which is a sort of a blessing) and some regurgitation issues, I feel pretty good, at the moment.
Anyhow, bummer and "oh shit".
