You know, my mama had always told me, you know, “quit smoking,” you know.
As a matter of fact, she said she was going to kill me if she caught me. But I didn’t listen, you know.
But, you know, now that, you know, I went through all this, you know, I now understand what she was trying to — she was trying to help me, you know. I quit smoking when I had problems with my leg, and I went to a specialist and they found that I had all my vein — I had nothing but plaque in both legs, and they were going to do a triple bypass.
And the day before the surgery he took X-rays to make sure I was strong enough to have the surgery, and he found that I had the tumor. They decided to do chemo first to shrink it, because it was pretty big.
And so they wouldn’t have to, you know, cut so deep. And so I had chemo — I think, like, nine treatments of the chemo. And then had surgery, and then had a lot of trouble with the breathing tubes — they got air in it, I swelled up. Then I finished that, and then, uh… recently I had two tumors in the brain, and I just had surgery on that. And then I had radiation that I had, 14 treatments of radiation that just finished. And that’s where I am, you know, right now. Yeah, you know, if you smoke, quit. That’s your best bet, to quit.
A lot of people think, “Oh, cancer, it’s not going to happen to me,” but look at myself, you know? I used to say the same thing, my mom used to get after me and tell me. But, you know, it can happen. It happened to me. And, uh, it’s not pretty, you know, it’s not pretty.
