I want to thank all my music lovers for supporting me these last 3 months

with your Wonderful heartfelt letters praying for my speedy recovery

as I battle this demon that Attacks so many other friends and their loved ones. 

So for now, no touring for a while....  I have rectal cancer....

 I had to undergo 6 weeks of chemotherapy and radiation  

 every day, Monday through Friday. 

Now I have rested and healed another 6 weeks from the Radiation and Chemotherapy.  

April 4, 2008 my surgeon Dr Hoffman and 2 other surgeons

will cut out the tumor at Cedars - Sinai Medical Center Hospital in Hollywood, Ca.  

I will have chemo afterwards to finish up. 

Then I will kick back and heal…. 

Then I will go back into reconstructive surgery and more Chemo. 

Then go to Hawaii and surf.... 

I again, thank all of you from my deep within and promise me, keep smiling…. D




FLASH FLASH FLASH

DICK DALE HAS LEFT THE BUILDING....HA

DD IS HOME FROM THE HOSPITAL AND HEALING.

THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR SUPPORT.....DICK

I want to personally thank all of you from my heart

for your heartfelt thoughts, your prayers and your support

with your letters and your calls.

It has been an interesting road of 6 weeks

monday thru friday every day

being hit with 3 jolts of radiation and chemotherapy.

I elected not take medicated drugs during this

venture and the road of pain was an interesting one.

I then rested for 6 weeks to be ready for the operation

and Dr. Gary Hoffman and his 2 fellow surgeons at Cedars of Sinai hospital

in Beverly Hills, Ca. endured a 8 hour operation with me.

I have been healing since April 4, 2008 and I am now preparing for another

testing before i go into the hospital November, 2008

for reconstructive surgery by Dr. Gary Hoffman.

This next operation is being set as i got the good news today

that the hole in my Colon has closed on its own.

You have asking in your letters and calls my status

and i felt it was now time to share with you as you

have shared with me.

I am still looking down at the grass and not looking up at the dirt.....ha

I will see you all in 2009

I thank you from the depths of my heart....

keep smiling

IT WAS SUCCESSFULL
