Health Update: 8/20/21

Labs back. The kidneys are still at their improved state. The cancer is definitely coming out of remission, but on a slow course. This trend is clear since April. I don’t have to do anything new just yet, but if this trend continues, by December, (or sooner), I will need to grid up my loins for my next big fight. Disappointing for sure, but typical of MM.

  1. Sorry to hear that it looks like you are coming out of remission. This fight really is like a 15 round heavyweight battle. Hang in there.
