Default Houston We have ignition....... Doug Lewis has completed stage 3 of 3

Leeann advised that the "Champ" has completed the 3rd stage of his Multiple Myeloma Treatment:

Stage1 (Thursday 9/12): Cutting age Homium Treatment that links radioactive isotopes to cancer seeking drug particles. Using a precisely timed half life formula this brings strong "juice" to all active cancer sites and does a thorough job of stomping on any active disease cells........ Doug spent most of a day in a lead lined room for this one....Hot stuff...... I swear to you he was up talking props within hours.

Stage 2 (Sunday (9/15). Massive Chemo dose irradicates all living bone marrow....and then he called the shop.

Stage 3 (Tuesday 9/17) Reintroduction of his own stem cells (auto-transplant). Doug now has to reconstruct his internal immune system from scratch................ I believe he has decided to do this in half the normal time, because .......... He's Doug.

Fellow OSO'ers you can talk all you want about the "Legends of Offshore"...and I knew/know most of them............... With all that, this is the most single minded, courageous display of grit and focus I've ever had the privelege to be a part of.

We love ya buddy............... Now get home and fix Bud's transmission.

Way to go Doug. Just kick the **** out of that stuff and get back to boating. After this rebuilding an engine will be like childs play. Good to see you are in good spirits. 99% of the battle is attitude...a good one.
