The news is Teddy K has won his battle with the big "C". Having been
there for a different version of his affliction, life is more important
than political views and past transgressions. Even though I am
diametrically opposed to his past exploits and politics, I wish him well
and many more years.
My understanding is that remission means that the cancer cannot be
detected by any tests.
What this really means is the cancer is at least temporarily at bay. It
can, of course, reappear at any time. That's what happened to my dad,
who had a tumor on his arm. They amputated the arm, and he lived for
many years in remission. But the cancer reappeared in his liver, and
finally killed him.
I know someone who has the same tumor that Kennedy had. Had a 6x6 cm
tumor removed from his brain. He's also in remission, and is regaining
much of his memory, etc. Apparently, 15 years ago they would have
written off both him and Kennedy as goners. But it's basically a crap shoot.

Is there more information than Harry Reid's gaffe the other day -- his
office had to retract that statement. Would be good if this were the case,
a person with whom our company works just died from the same kind of tumor
as Kennedy has after a long battle.
If you're going to be dumb, you better be tough
I received information that Harry Reid has the beginnings of Alzheimer's.
This comes from a very reputable Doctor in Nevada. This could be the reason
for his almost daily gaffes. I also know that the Kennedy's have not always
been truthful about some of their personal problems. Just about every
Kennedy family member in one way has lied about a medical condition. So I
would take this for what's it worth, considering the source!
