    Ummm....
    This is a disease that has had very high success rates and improve treatment.

    Figures 3a-c shows survival by age, gender and WHO PS. Of patients surviving the first 30 days, all but two (97%) achieved complete remission (CR). Two of the CR patients subsequently underwent autologous transplantation in first CR; both are still alive.

    Basically this Swedish study breaks down data from 1997 to 2006 and a third of the patients didn't get the treatment of ATRA (a derivative of vitamin A). The 30 days was the larger risk period of death and like I said treatment of this disease has greatly improved since 1997.

    I'm glad it sounds like he'll be okay. Didn't leukemia used to be a death sentence?

    Man, what a punch in the gut. I really think the Colts have made a good hire here. Here's hoping for a full recovery and return to the sidelines.

    Go coach!

    Having had my own battle with cancer this summer, he has my complete empathy and support.

    It still is depends on the individual and when you find it.

    I knew a family growing up that both their kids had leukemia one died and the other survived.

    Course times were different then than now but the fact that it exists presents a risk of death. However it does appear he found it early so hopefully he'll be one of the lucky ones.

    Very cool, Mr. Ryan.

    I'm very glad it's treatable, but that doesnt mean much. Class act by Rob Ryan.

    On a side note. This might not be the place for this, but i watched that presser and wow... Irsay needs to get himself together. Even in a suit, he looks like a mess.

    It seems as though it was spotted early enough for him to receive full treatments to be able to get back to his old self.

    While it appears he won't be serving his usual head coaching duties this year, it sounds like he'll be back on the sidelines by next year.

    Until then, get well soon coach!

    I'm not going to cheer for his team. But I am going to cheer for him to get through this. This sucks.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    I know we have a poster who thinks the Devil owns the Colts and wants nothing but to see his own pockets lined rather than ever doing the right thing, or would even know the right thing if it bit him on the posterior, but Chicago J's opinion aside, how can anyone say the Colts organization has done anything but handled this situation with heart and class?

    To me this whole thing shows that this organization is NOT the product of some disconnected, cold and uncaring owner and in fact is just the opposite. That's my .02 anyway.

    I'm too young to remember or care about Robert Irsay. I would have been a young kid when he died in 1997.

    But I do know that the Jim Irsay owned Colts have always done an excellent job of bonding with the community and handling difficult situations with class, whether it be the death of Dungy's son or the illness of Pagano. Irsay's speech in the locker room yesterday was from the heart of someone who cared.

    It hasn't been an easy year for Irsay. He had to make a difficult decision with Manning and now is dealing with the Pagano illness, which is obviously on a completely different stratosphere in terms of seriousness.

    I know people complain that Irsay made out like a bandit on the stadium deal, and he did. But Irsay has been a model owner. The team has done a superb job of marketing around the entire state and always makes sure to give back the community. I've never once doubted Irsay's willingness to spend or put the best possible team on the field. I think yesterday foreshadowed that the Colts are going to continue to be in good shape during the Luck era.

    I like that Jim Irsay owns the team I root for.

    Yea, to condemn the son for the actions of the father is silly. Jim is nothing like Bob as an owner, anyway. He's a top owner in the league.
