Major Skarlis update
« on: 05/25/19 09:10 UTC »
From his Facebook post.
Major update: last report from mayo is that resection surgery removed over 95% of the tumor. We start radiation next week combined with chemotherapy to hammer the tumor to keep it from growing back. (These tumors are expected to grow back, its like pulling a box elder stump. The roots remain. But the radiation is focused to knock down all of the small ends. We will be driving to Rochester every day for 6 weeks. Then after that I get to ring the same exact bell as Jim Carroll! So far all news has been best case scenario. Please keep praying! Its working! I'm home now and enjoying time with family and friends. blessed to have christ managing the team! Jesus strong! Even got to enjoy lunch with Joe from Al's Specialty Marine. Time to start playing with my lures! Please keep praying, its working! Always focus on the positive!

Pray that the treatments work and that you can get back to normal as it can be. Stay strong there has to be a plan by the master of life.
May your days be filled with sun shine and you always have a tight line. AMEN

Whether behind the scenes, or in the front line, working for Christ will produce glorious results. Go for it Tommy. You have been chosen!

Also a big round of applause for SteveJ for the great reporting. Thanks Steve!

That's some amazing news for sure. Stay strong Tommy and keep the Lord on your list. My Prayers continue for you and your family and for Jesus to find a way to trump this insidious stuff. Have great Memorial Weekend Tommy. Today is a beaut and tomorrow is supposed to be a repeat. Carole and I had lunch on the patio in the sun this morning and we're doing dinner there in a couple hours. Its great to be alive.

Praying like hell for a victorious outcome.  Hang in there Bud.
I find it incredible that I have to explain to a grown American citizen that taking a knee during the National Anthem is disrespectful.
