Updates, Tears, and Other Annoyances
Howdy folks! I realize it’s been a while since I updated the blog, but that all changes, because guess what? This is a blog update! Numbers, Tests, Neutropenia, etc. I went into Presby yesterday for some routine stuff. Blood work, updates to my test statuses, and transfusions if I needed them. So, here they are: […]
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 […]
Round 1 of Consolidation Chemo: Conquered. Kinda.
First, let’s start this bad boy off with some good news: I’m home! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Somehow, that 6 day span felt longer, at times, than the month I spent in there the last time. I think it had something to do with the fact that the room was super small this time, and I had no […]
And We’re Waiting….and waiting….and waiting…
Howdy ladies and gentlemen! Welcome to another addition of “let’s get an update on the cancer guy!” Hah. How funny would it be if that was a talk show, and I could actually have an announcer say “And now, your host, CANCER GUY!”. I hope I’m not the only one that finds that funny. […]
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 […]
You Think You Know Awkward? Think Again.
I open my eyes. It’s 7:45 am. I groan. I still haven’t received the phone call from the hospital telling me when a bed will be ready, but I know that I have to go in to start round two of chemo. Screw it, I’m going back to sleep. 8:31, my phone rings. Hospital says […]
And I’m Back!
Well, after a nice long break at home, I’m back at Presby. Before coming here, I had to stop at the “bank”, and make another “deposit”. I am as yet undecided if I should post the experience. I probably end up posting it, but if you wanna hear about it, contact me and tell me. […]
‘Twas the Night Before Chemo
Sitting here, the night before I get re-admitted, I have to admit that I can’t really decide how I feel. Certainly not like Christmas Eve. I’ve relaxed, read books, hung out with friends, eaten good food, played games, and watched TV. I kind of feel like I should have done…more? Maybe? But to be perfectly […]
The Unsung Heroes
Today is pretty much the last day of the last weekend that I’ll be “normal” for, for a long while. I go back to Presbyterian this Thursday to start the next phase of treatment. For right now, I get one round of “consolidation chemotherapy”, which might be followed by either 3 additional rounds, or by […]
