    This was reported some time ago. What I found interesting/strange was that Davis was expected to make a start or two before treatment.

    I mean, if you knew you had cancer wouldn't you get treatment as soon as possible?

    He's starting today's game. This may be his final start before his surgery. Depending on how well things go this could be it for him. My prayers go out to him and his family.

    He was diagnosed sometime last week and is having his surgery a week from today. He's getting his treatment pretty quickly.

    Marty and Thom were talking about this during today's game. Mercifully, he hasn't required chemo yet and still feels good. I hope everything works out for him... cancer, a nasty nasty thing.

    They found out my wife had thyroid cancer last year the same day we found out she was pregnant.

    I believe I read that they are going to offer the same treatment for Doug as they did my wife - which is the complete removal of the thyroid.

    It's one of the slowest growing cancers (and one of the harder to detect) so the risk is low of waiting a few weeks until he thinks he's ready. They waited four months without issue on her before doing it when we thought the baby could safely handle the anesthesia.

    Although I do question whether he'll actually pop in and pop out the day of surgery as has been reported - it's still an organ removal and my wife was layed up for 3 days afterwards.

    We wish Doug and his family nothing but the best - it's not easy but removing the Thyroid is 99.9 percent effective of totally eradicating the cancer - and your thyroid hormone can be replicated with drugs rather easily.

    Very courageous that he pitched today.

    I'm not surprised though. It's always been pretty apparent he was the type of guy to fight it out.

    Josh, hadn't heard that about your wife. Hope and pray everything is alright.
