    Can we just forfeit the Reds series, I can't take the frustration anymore!!! Having wrote that I got some in your face perspective to lay on everyone and I do this for the sanity of you all on here my fellow suffering Dodger fans who I feel a kinship with. Life is more important by far guys, my wife was just diagnosed with lung cancer so while this team irks me to no end I know it pails in comparison. She loves the Dodgers so she'll support them no matter what so keep it in perspective guys. Don't shorten your lives by stressing yourselves out and don't take this shit seriously. Let it out then let it go.

    I may not be on here much in the future but keep posting the good, bad and ugly stuff so I along with others can enjoy this site just like I have for years. Even the crazy stuff!!!!!!!!!! :koufax0000:

    this is all i saw
    my thoughts and prayers are with you and your wife, and i'm certain i am not alone
    life is way more important than any sport
    take care of your wife, be there for her (i know this goes without saying, but still)
    we are like a family here (albeit a somewhat dysfunctional one), and so you're like a brother to us -- all of us
    let us know if you need anything
    god bless bro

    I don't get upset about sports. It's just a game at the end of the day. That said.......................

    It's almost hockey season...

    Doughty, much love to you and your wife. Know that cancer can be devastating, but keeping a positive attitude and KNOWING you will get through it will help tremendously. If there is anything I/we can do, please let us know.

    Sorry to hear this Doughty. Stay positive and know that your wife will beat this.

    Baseball is just a game and sometimes life hits you with something that puts things into a proper perspective. Stay strong and I wish the best for you and your wife

    Thoughts and prayers for your wife and you, stay strong for her because she will need all the strength you can offer. Be positive as I know you can be and show here all the time.

    I know this isn't a time for levity but...by chance does your wife have a background in chemistry and live in the Albuquerque area?

    Doughty, Godspeed!

    If you dont mind my suggestions...
    Go on a month long alkaline based diet with your wife. Both of you so she feels the support.
    Bioelectric foods heal, but they heal only when your body has the proper PH. Like the battery in your car.
    Remove mucus causing entities from your home and diet. Mucus is the favorite food of cancer cells. It makes them stronger and allows them to grow and multiply faster.
    Drink tea from the leaves of the Cherimoya tree.
    These and a few others are non invasive non weird things you can do to help your body fight the enemy within.

    Lots of love and kindness is the most important thing, and im sure you have that covered already.
    Keep it up and she will be victorious.

    Sorry Doughty...I've had this to bear in my life, too.
    I can tell you matter what you've been through, you are in for the fight of your life.
    Keep her strong and her fighting spirit up, and be her strength when she is down.
    Don't know the details of the diagnosis, but together, you can beat this one, brother.

    If you wish to fight!

    Your base green vegetable should be Amaranth greens – same as Callaloo, a variety of Spinach that is what Spinach used to be back when Popeye ate it and before the GMO's trademarked the name. You can buy seeds cheap online or buy the plant at the garden store. Its used as a decorative plant but it is one of the most healthy things you can put in your mouth. Its eaten a lot by Jamaicans and West Africans because it grows like a weed with little care and reproduces on its own.
    Other than that there are plenty of great things to eat that will give you the real mineral content your body needs to fight. Food that has high organic plant iron because with iron comes a ton of other minerals as iron is the cornerstone of your blood and life is in the blood. Iron carries others, it sustains and stands under the rest of the minerals in order to help them come on up the bloodstream. Just like Iron Man is not the leader of the Avengers he still is the cornerstone that keeps them afloat and pays for all their adventures. He carries them.

    Sorry to here that @Doughty8 I hope you and your wife the best in recovery and wish you guys well. I know nothing about cancer really since it has not affected anyone close to me but I know its a mother fucker man. Good luck with everything and I agree with what you said. Life's too short to stress over the small things like baseball. Be with your wife and fight the good fight man. Good luck to you both I hope everything works out for the best.
