Getting out of the hospital!
Part, just part of the team that is saving my ass. The "whole crew" is up to 40 people at least.

But the most important individual is that guy, Sergio Brazil MD. An outstanding guy, and we kinda became friends since we met and he embraced my case as his mission of the year.

I said to him: "Dude, if you cure me I'll pay you a lobster so big you'll need help to finish it!"

He accepted the chalenge hehehe

That photo was taken in Feb 17, the day I got out after almost die at the ICU.

In fact, he said to me at the day I left ICU (feb 15): "Paulo, once you told me you would never climb K2 because you have love for life, well buddy, you just did. Do you know the survival chances you had with intestine infection after the first round of chemo? 5%, and you did it, you just climbed K2."

Well, I guess he was right!

Glad to hear you fought so well, I hope you will become a living proof of what Nietzsche said, "What doesn't kill me, makes me stronger!"

You did more than climb K2 man! Annapurna, the deadliest peak in the world, has a survival rate of around 40-50%. You just climbed all of the 8000 meter peaks(without oxygen)! Keep up the fight man!

Your second battle, if I got you right, starts day after tomorrow...We're all standing behind you as powerfully as we can!!!!!!
You can make it - after having "climbed K2", I think you can make anything you want!
Cheers, my friend,

Yes, you got that right!
Friday, probably. It may change due to rules of the health insurance, but I expect to fly by it hehehe
This one will be easy, you'll see!
Cheers and thanks for the kind words!
