    That goes for a whole bunch of misfits to the south that Kevin has helped many times over when making plans to visit the northland. Best wishes and hopes for a speedy recovery!!!!!!

    Hey all,
    Sorry I haven't been quicker on the updates. Yesterday I was shoveling out from the 14 inches of snow not predicted by the local weatherman! Temps in the single digits, but way warmer than most of you.

    Kevin will be in the hospital for at least another 4-5 weeks. He has 11 more radiation treatments and 5 more days of chemo, with the treatments all ending 21 December. Effects of those will continue to degrade his system for at least two weeks, before any healing will begin. He has to be able to eat real food before they will release him.

    He has more lines and fluids going into him than any aging, leaking bike that ALCAN Rider owns. The good news is these should all fix him, where Alcan's bikes are just........well, insert your own adjective here.

    We are going day to day, things are changing daily some are good some not so much. This is pretty tough on him and the next 2 weeks they said will be rougher. He is hanging in there, but consistently not winning the best patient award. Who knew!?

    Wish we could be at Alaska Leather for the Hacksters party, looking forward to seeing everyone at D2D!

    I of course won't be at the party either, Top of the World closed due to severe weather conditions and panty hose border people.

    Remind the K man that I can't do it without him and so just being a little selfish, just kick the shit out of the demons for me!

    Lots of good energy coming in from all over the globe, take as much as you need!

    Standing by in the cheering section.

    Hey Kevin and Annie, Sorry to hear the bad news... Good thing is those demons couldn't have picked a tougher fight! Stay strong these next few weeks Kevin and then heal up real good.

    We're thinking of you at the shop here in Fairbanks! Sending lots of well wishes and some really cold weather to chase that pesky snow away.

    Looking forward to a pint this summer along with healthy doses of throttle therapy. :freaky

    Hi Annie, I have only just found out, I'm thinking of you both, all the best. A hospital is not the best place to spend the Xmas, New Year, but it sure beats the alternative, I'm sure Kevin will pull through being the fighter he is.

    Once again all the very best.

    I'm sorry to hear about this and the hospital may be a miserable place to spend the holidays. I don't get over here that often. I hope you survive the miserable food and limited freedom but from what I've read, you are more than half way through the treatment. So, are you planning on coming up this summer?

    My prayers are with both of you. I started following this little part of the asylum several years ago as I planned my 2011 trip to Alaska. When I came home. I found myself still coming back to the forum, maybe so I could relive some of our travels as I read of yours. While it may be a while before I can get back, following your travels brings back mine. But as time has gone by, I feel, in a way, that I know some of you by following your exploits. And the one thing unique to you folks is the love and respect you show for each other. Always reaching out to help each other, very little acrymony and a genuine fondness and caring for one another. It's very nice in this day and age. A year ago at this time, I was 2/3 rds of the way thru my 44 radiation treatments for cancer. Maybe not as serious as yours, but cancer. I saw alot of specialists when deciding treatments, and radiation was the best recommendation. Today I am cancer free. Six months after my treatments were over, I spent 2 weeks riding Colorado. You can beat this, and I suspect that with the love and frienship your extended family has shown, you will. God speed, and go get em.

    Hey all, just a quick update to share at Alaska Leather this evening!

    While his white cell count has plummeted to less than 500, our spirits have not. Docs tell us this is perfectly normal with this treatment and they expect it to begin rising in time for the final round of chemo next week and the last 5 radiation treatments. In the home stretch now!

    Of course, this all requires him to wear a mask for his own protection, which he at first decided was not for him, until his Doc referred to it as ATGATT! I
    It is a lovely shade of peach.....:rofl

    We, (I) cannot thank everyone enough for all the thoughts and prayers, and good wishes. Indeed you are all an amazing special group of people and we are proud to be part of the family!

    Lift a toast to D2D, to all those we have loved, and to those we still do.

    Annie

    Annie,
    You're doing a fine job of pinch-hitting for Kevin's "ascerbic, pithy, biting, sarcastic sense of humor". :umph :lol3, but it will be great when he's back to doing it himself. :nod We're all looking forward to hearing that he's back home and sharing his ready wit.
    Thanks for keeping us all up-to-date. It is appreciated. :thumb

    Well, we have a bunch of things for which we are thankful.....
    The Mayans were wrong,

    Legions' MasterCard/Visa while still smoking, has not burst into flames( we went through that wedding stuff two years ago, we understand!),

    ALCAN Rider may learn to count with intense assistance from Kul Mom,

    And Kevin had his last chemo treatment, and his 35th and final radiation treatment today!

    He still feels wretched, but is now on the uphill side heading for healing. He will be in the hospital at least through the new year, but mending each day. Best Christmas present I have had in a long tome!

    We wish all of you love, laughter, healthy families, and a very Merry Christmas!:clap
