Tennis is “important”; but life and health are more important. Good friend and senior tennis leader, Larry Turville has completed his months of chemo and radiation for his throat cancer and his heading home. Here is his report…
It’s finally here, I finished with treatment! Going to be a bit of a rough recovery as I have lost 25 lbs and still can’t eat solids. But goods new I should be healing from here out. Good time to challenge me on the courts!
Probably won’t be able to play for at least month to get strength up. So now headed to Dunnellon for few days and then to Waynesville, NC. I look forward to eating , sleeping, watching golf & tennis, and getting my strength back.
Thanks to all my those who have sent their prayers and words of encouragement. It truly gives you an appreciation of life.
All the best and hope the hip recovery is going well. Easy does it!
Ps. At the end of treatment, you bang the gong and sign the board. Hair is starting to grow back, but no face hair yet.
Larry, if you and I were to be on the court now, I would hit you with my cane and it would be comical! Get well soon.
