    It's not a tumor (well, it is)

    Real update. Had a biopsy done and I must say, until the needle hit a nerve and he took the sample, wasn't too bad. After that, I found a great method to induce pain if I ever become an evil mastermind trying to take over the world.

    Aside from some complications, it is done and the results came back on Friday as benign. Which is great, I'm scheduled to have surgery on the 10th of April to remove it.

    I don't know too much until I have my preop appointment on the third, but in the talk with the doc the other day, he mentioned at least having to bisect my pec major muscle and may have to saw my collar bone in half to get to the tumor in a way that won't damage the nerves it is wrapped around.

    I think my jeep mod budget has been reallocated for the year, major bummer! Perhaps that's why it was such a good idea to get the JKUR as I can still do most of the trails around Texas!

    Thank for all your thoughts and prayers, this surgery has me a bit worried, but I'm quite confident in the doc and his team who will be doing it

    Good luck throughout the rest of this course. We are all happy that you will be around for a few more years. The Jeep can wait, you have a rubi anyway. That thing will go anywhere as is! Glad to hear everything turned out ok.

    That is great news!!! You can go into surgery knowing you only have to heal from that and it's over. Thoughts and prayers your way.

    Glad to hear the good news! Your surgery will go fine and you'll be back riding in no time. Jeep mods can wait, health comes first in my book brother.

    Yeah, the mods will wait, this little break will just fuel my indecision about what to do first!

    GREAT news!!! Good Luck on your surgery, keep us all posted.

    Now you have a year to shop the intrawebs for goodies... which is either a good or bad thing

    I'll keep that in mind! Today is a great day for updates... The Mayo Clinic called just a bit ago and they can take me for the same week as I was going to have the surgery locally. Likely a pile (perhaps an order of magnitude) more expensive... But they have a team and I kind of think my nerves are important and with the tumor all around the nerves that go to my arm...

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
