I saw his statement. I also know from personal experience what the side effects from treatment are. There are some treatments that some might call “mild” side effects (corticosteroids, for example). NONE have NO side effects, and most people would say they are MAJOR.

If you read Fred’s statement carefully, he said, “No debilitating side effects.” The key word is “debilitating”. He would probably not be “disabled” in a legal sense.

He would still be able to think, even if he felt miserable, and even if he was hospitalized (these treatments usually require hospitalization).

However, treatment with Rituxamab is major, and an autologous stem cell transplant is incredibly intense. His energy level would certainly be reduced, and his judgement could also be affected.

As I said earlier, we do not yet have the specific information needed to completely assess the situation. But the little that has been released thus far leads me to believe that he should not run.

I am a big FRED supporter. My mom died last year from Lymphoma. This does give me pause, it is worrisome. One thing, it will sure make a huge difference now as to who he selects as his running mate. Prayers to Fred!

Rudy has been so completely gracious to Fred in regards to this issue and they have a mutual understanding. McCain, on the other hand, is somewhat mentally affected by all this with all due respect.

Fred and Mc. are close supporters of each other and they believe many of the same things politically, so I look for Fred to endorse McCain, but wish Rudy well.

Interesting analysis...thanks.

My thinking (colored as it is by my great support of this man) is that Fred has likely had a complete and thorough check-up and has gotten more than one opinion on his current health and prognosis for the future.

Perhaps all the candidates should make their full medical records public now.”

We still have NOT seen Bill Clinton’s medical records...

Does anyone here EVER think we will see Hillary’s medical records? How about a DNA test on Chelsea?????

““No debilitating side effects.” The key word is “debilitating”. He would probably not be “disabled” in a legal sense.”

So what, the flu would have “debilitating” side effects as well AND people have died from it. Still dont understand your point.

WE’RE BACK ON!!!! THOMPSON FOR PRESIDENT!!!!!! Now we just have to sit and wait for the offical announcement!
-—<>-—<>-—<>-—<>-—<>-—

Agreed ... this is the meaning of today’s news. I’m guessing he’ll let this cook for a while, and announce when everyone’s getting more tired of the year-long publicity race... It could be only 1 week, or as long as in September... but I think he’s going to announce he’s in the run sometime this year unless someone else gets sufficient traction to counter the current two “front runners.”

Your family’s experience is not the only one people can have with “lymphoma”... See my post#332 for my brother’s experience. Tough that your family had bad types of this. Apparently, Thompson has been “luckier”.
