How’s this for real time updates. This photo is taken now as I sit in bed, faithful laptop on the top of my lap, wife by my side, doing her best to ignore the tapping of keys, wearing her light-blocking eye-mask.

Amongst the uncertainty I feel at the moment, I have it so good. For whatever reason, I have landed the best friends anyone could ask for. I believe the saying to be true, “Show me your friends, and I will show you your future.” This has been true in my life in the most positive way possible.

When I was reading some literature on Multiple Myeloma in the early days of diagnosis, there was a section headed “Positives”. In the light of this disease being incurable, it said, “Most patients with Multiple Myeloma report that they feel closer to family and friends after diagnosis.” You know what else it reported on the positives? Nothing.

However, I have found this to be true. And if that is the only positive able to be identified, then that is good enough for me. With the friends and family I have, it is me who is getting the good deal.

Hey Baldie…..lol……just read what you wrote and I cannot stop laughing. Not about what you said….about the positives of Multiple Myeloma you found in the literature. Well, we’ll have to change that little list now won’t we?? By the way, you look almost as good as I do bald. Just kidding cause it’s no fair you guys look great and us women look like we have cancer! Hang in there my friend and let me know about that leg.

I’m not thtat sure you are getting that good a deal anymore. It cost you $50 on Saturday night and if you keep getting uglier I will have to charge more.

I only hope that all my friends think as highly of me as your’s do of you.

You look a bit like you should be a figure on Underbelly. Can you get some new photos and make them background options? Your doing a great job Cam, you have handled this all with what seems to be supernatural powers, and I am immensley proud to be related to you. Looking forward to hearing the latest on the leg xx

Tentring, do you accept checks, credit card or direct transfer?

Cons, I forgot about the photo backgrounds, I have mine just set on the trees background as it feels strange to have a picture up of myself. I will take requests as to what kind of photos you would like up as background.

Tentring, I will not accept photo suggestions from you, so stop it with that evil grin.

Don’t sell that comb!
I’m beginning to look at all my parent’s stuff with sentimental attachment – even combs and brushes (with hair in, ewww)
But one day you can leave it to your kids as an hairloom.

Man, you’re getting better looking each day!
Now – if you can get a bit of hair growing out of your chin (tricky with Thal, I know…) you’ll look AWESOME!

Have a great w/end.

I love those American ads with the goodlooking grey haired guy feeling like a loser. Then he adds hair colouring and, crikey!, he feels like a real man. Girl swoons “you nailed me”.

Now here I am looking at your photo Cam. Now there’s a real man. They type of man this world needs. Real, kind, credible, spiritual, Christ like. Above all, not a grey hair in sight.

Proud to be blood related to the Camster.

I just googled Grace Park as well.

Yes, she does have the same birthday as Cam. Apart from that, Cam and her are nothing alike.

I have 43 high definition downloaded images to prove it.
