    The doctor just called and said it came back as cancer. He said that
    on the cancer scale it was a 2 between 1 and 4. He also said he took out
    a lymph node and it came back clear. So he didn't find any in the surrounding
    tissue so he felt like it was all removed with the kidney gone. So hopefully its a done deal from the way he talked.

    I hope it's all clear,I have no idea what it's like to have a part removed but it sounds like it was a good thing in this case.

    Here's to hoping you're cancer free.

    Kingfish since I will probably never build a bike again, the ones I
    kept are like my babies. Even if I never ride one again, they stay.
    imagine I will be gone at some point and my younger wife will
    sell them in a garage sale, but for now they are mine.

    I respect that my friend! You'll give up a kidney if you have too, but no way are you giving up any more bikes!!
    BRAVO and BEST WISHES!!!

    Yep Deorman looks like three bullet holes and a knife wound.

    Kingfish moving to this house and giving up my shop and lots of my bikes
    was a struggle. I kept about 6 or 7 and the rest went by the
    wayside. I had to grit my teeth to pair them down but life
    changes and you sometimes have to move on no matter
    the sacrifice.

    Bad that he found cancer, but at least there is a good chance it is all gone!
    Good news Uncle Stretch!

    Glad to hear that the recovery is expected to be good. Rest when you're told to, get some exercise when you're told to and soon enough you will ride your treasures around some.

    You look pretty good for a guy who had his kidney removed. Hang in there. You will always have a place in my heart.

    All the best ... Skip

    And Yeshewa went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people. Matthew 9:35

    Thanks guys I really appreciate the support and prayers.

    Clancy its funny this all started when my thyroid went crazy and I lost
    25 pounds in a month. I was eating boxes of twinkies, ding dongs, and
    those cool sugar doughnuts like crazy and still loosing weight. It
    was fun while it lasted. They finally got that under control enough
    to operate on my kidney that they found by accident. So it was
    a good deal that the thyroid acted up to find my kidney problem.

    So Kingfish254 wants Uncle Stretch to wind up with a reinforced newly-welded metal skeleton, an extra two feet of height, a two-speed transmission in his pelvis for hilly terrain and a two-tone candy-coat skin to complement his new white-walled shoes...I guess that would be pretty awesome actually...:21:

    Get well soon Uncle Stretch-and take some young Padawan with a nearby workshop under your wing and i'll bet you find some more bike designs in you after all!

    Well would like to be about 20 again but at this point in
    life will settle for just healing nicely.
    I have showed everybody how to build a frame, and built a bunch.
    My job is done grasshopper the world belongs to you.
