And So It Begins…began?

I meant to publish this post after getting my Hiccman cather placed. Then, I intended to post it after I woke up the next day. Then I wanted to post it…and things kept moving it back and back and back. Well, let’s get back on Track, shall we? I’ll start from the beginning. Hiccman Catheter Placement […]

Scary Stuff Un-Related to Halloween

Right, so, I mentioned scary, heavy topics to discuss. Well, time to discuss them. But first, for those of you reading this from the East coast, I hope that everybody is safe. So far, I’ve dropped power for about 10 minutes, and lost internet for another 20 minutes or so. All told, I’m getting off […]

I’m Back!

After quite the hiatus, I’m back, and ready to update everybody on all the things. Let’s get right to it, shall we? Recovering From Round 2 of Consolidation I’ve been laying low since getting out of the hospital from round 2. This consolidation seemed to take a bit more out of me than previous rounds. […]

Highlighting Yet Another Hero

As time goes on, I’ve come to realize that my family and friends comprise a pretty special group of people. With very few exceptions, people have gone above and beyond to try to do something to help me, or to let me know that I have their love and support, and that I’m in their […]

Baby Fights

I’m back! Finally got to meet Dr. Barker, the stem cell specialist. She was absolutely awesome, and I loved her. She gave me a lot of info, and made me feel a lot more comfortable with the idea of stem cell. I’m still  not decided, but I’m feeling a lot better about things. The Nitty […]

It’s Story Time

As you can probably imagine, I’ve had a whole lot of time to sit around and think. A lot of time to have ideas kind of stew and gestate in my brain. Some positive, some negative, some neutral. But today, I want to share about my journey of the last few years. I think it’ll […]

Maybe Warn a Guy?

So we are now approaching the 24 hour mark since my last bag of chemo from day/dose 1. I found out that this round of chemo isn’t exactly as easy to deal with as I had been lead to believe. Projected / Explained Schedule: Total stay in hospital: 5 days Dosage: Days 1, 3, 5 each get […]

What Can You Do To Help

Throughout this whole process, all my friends, family, coworkers, associates – everyone has been wonderful. When the discussion of bone marrow came up, I can’t even count the number of people that have offered to come in and get tested, to see if we’re a match. For each and every offer, I am unbelievably touched. […]

Peripherally Inserted Central Catheter (PICC Line)

So, some people have asked me about my PICC line, and I meant to write about the experience, but a few people have contacted me about their own PICC line being placed. So, I figured I’d speed up writing about it a bit. Should be a fairly short post. *Warning*: If you’re extremely squeemish, stay away. […]
