Amugs = A SURVIVOR!!  Empty Amugs = A SURVIVOR!!

Post by amugs on Wed Oct 30, 2019 10:30 am

To my NJ Weather Family,

I have received phenomenal news Monday afternoon from my oncologist. After this 6 month battle with cancer, finishing my 4 months of chemo both IV and oral pills, losing 8 pints of blood and 12" of my large intestines (that where the tumor was) and being diagnosed with Stage 3 cancer my upper body scan showed that I am clean!!

I BEAT THIS DISEASE!! (so far!!)

FU CANCER! I KICKED UR ARSE!!

I am now officially a survivor of this horrible disease. I am blessed by the God Almighty who has given me the strength to beat this disease. I have a few stories that were signs of great comfort and healing, Cardinals(red birds) at my home the day of my diagnosis, the days leading up to my surgery, and when I started chemo and a day when I had an absolute emotional and mental breakdown in September. They are said to be a sign of those who have passed that show up to bring you comfort. That they did. Then while in the hospital all my caregivers - nurses and aids were.....................deceased family members names (Paul, Rose, Christine, Lauren, Jack, William and a few more) and some of whom I never met. Coincidences?? I think not.

I thank you all for your tremendous support, well wishes and prayers when I informed y'all of my illness. Here's to NJ Strong Wx board and to many more years of sharing our hobby passion together!!

Let's make this and have the best winter ever!!!!!!!!

Mugs

Logging in for the first time since last winter to say a big old CONGRATS to you amugs. Having lost a family member to that terrible disease very recently it's great to hear success stories like this.

Looking forward to another winter of your excellent analysis.

Such good news!!!! Way to go. I think that this board needs a new category. Every storm over 18 inches ought to be called a "A MugsZilla". You have by far earned that honor.

MUGS! I'm just a lurker here, but your news is absolutely wonderful!

I guess you could say that you now have...

A SEMI-COLON.

Thanks folks, I'll be here all week. Tip your servers, try the veal.

Mugsy!! That’s fantabulous news, my friend!! SO glad to hear this news, you have no idea!!! Hopefully that’s only the beginning of the good news for this upcoming season, and I can think of no better or more appropriate way to celebrate than with a historically cold and snowy season!! Very Happy party
