    Man it was great talking to him on the phone, its been awhile. Bob is going thru ALOT right now but in great spirits. He broke down and you cant imagine how much he appreciates the thoughts and help over this tough time. I know he will read this so if you want to drop him a line this would be a great place to do it. Bob has a long road ahead and its our job as his friends to help in any way we can. Send him a dirty joke or a naked pic of your ex GF to make him laugh. Just kidding.

    We love you Bob. :p

    Analogman just shipped my Mojo Swirl I'm happy to say.

    Just so you know there is light at the end of the tunnel Bob I'm in my 7th month of Chemo-its a hard road but I believe its working.

    Playing guitar is what keeps me connected to the real part of myself.
    And keeps the noise away, I hope that makes sense

    Here is a copy of a post I left on the other thread.

    First off, let me say that I have kept a low profile because quite simply I cannot find the words that will relay the extent of my feelings of what the online community is doing for me. From manufacturers, dealers, rock stars, wanna be rocks stars, musicians to non-musicians and just plain old good folks from Norway to Singapore, Japan to Germany and everywhere in between and of course across the United States. My dilemma is….how do I thank so many for so much? Fact is there just aren’t the words.
    Nothing can come remotely close to show my appreciation for what you all are doing. From simple prayers and “keep your chin up” notes and emails to donations and auctions, You people are absolutely awe inspiring. I just hope I can become worthy of your kindness and caring.

    So here’s where I’m at right now. Tomorrow (Friday) I’ll be doing my 3rd Chemotherapy. I suspect Monday I will start Radiation therapy (39-40 treatments, 5 days a week). Chemo is once a week for about 8 hours. While these guys pull no punches and tell it like it is. I did get this out of my Oncologist, he said he was “cautiously optimistic”.
    They have not found any other cancer anywhere else, so that is good. Although the type I have (Squamous cell carcinoma) is known to be a “secondary” type cancer it is on rare occasions the primary. The tumor has reacted positively to the Chemo so far and is in my left front neck.

    And YES, I am still shipping and taking orders. I have to, or I’ll go nutz (and broke)! While I may be a little slower than normal everyone WILL get their orders in a timely a fashion as humanly possible. My wife Barbara has taken on a larger roll and has been an absolute angel during this. Without her I could not go through what is ahead of me. I consider myself VERY lucky to have her with me.
    So if you don’t mind and after I get a schedule down, I’m eager to get back in as my obnoxious self on the forums. :)

    Thank you SO much for showing your unbelievable kindness toward me, it will NEVER be forgotten.

    Sincerely,

    Good luck to you my friend, I'm glad to hear it's working for you. If there is ANYTHING I can ever do, just say the word.

    And yes, "the noise" does make sense :)

    Any time you want to call and make fun of my "turtle headband" you are more than welcome. You can even call and tell me how fat I am and live in the cess pool of Ohio. :p It would make my day.

    BTW Bob look on ebay under Ty Tabor.
