Al Wilson Speaks Regarding His Present Health Situation.

Wilson Al & Barb

Al (Wilson) sent out a message to his shuffleboard partners, announcing that he and Barb will NOT be able to winter in FL this season, 2014-=2015. His e-mail read in part: 

I have stomach cancer and starting next week, I will have three rounds of 3 week chemo treatments from an intravenous pump 24/7.  At the end of the three rounds, I get a month to build my system back up and then surgery.  

I believe there is more chemo to follow the surgery.  We have a state of the art facility right here in Newmarket where we live and I have top doctors.

I was perfectly healthy as far as normal activities until the last two weeks of May when I got increased heart rate and shortness of breath just cutting the lawn.  My routine physical in June showed a huge drop in hemoglobin count and a subsequent gastroscopy found the tumor. 

Best advice to everybody our age – when you have a routine colonoscopy, ask for a gastroscopy as well.  They put you out and you feel nothing.  Al Wilson 

Al asked his Shuffleboard Partners to “pencil him in for the 2015-2016 Season”
