Get Me Outta Here!

Once again, I have been humbled by the deluge of shares, likes, and bone marrow donations that have flooded my way in the past week or so. I know some of you have found me through high school, through work relationships, through friends, or friends of my family, and everyone here, I just want to say THANK YOU. Your thoughts, prayers, kind words, cards and little gifts all help keep me level, happy, and in positive spirits.

For those of you able to visit, again, you have my undying gratitude, and I hope that I am in some way able to repay the kindness in the future.

With all that being said, I’ve got good news:


Round Two of Consolidation chemo is over. I’m getting the last bit of post-hydration now, and then I get to go home. 3/5 total treatments done, and officially in the halfway point for chemo-only treatment.


I officially peed a river last night (over 4,000CCs worth, or ~136oz of liquid), but it’s gradually tapering off. I actually had 2 great, kind, amazing roommates, both of whom I hope we can include in our thoughts and prayers (Roger and Ahmad). This hospital stay was about as pain free as I could really hope for, with just 2 minor bits of nausea, and that’s about it.


So its off to home, and off to start some triathlon training. Oh, and play tons of dorky board games. Expect some ridiculously nerdy updates complete with nerdtacular pictures.


Oh, and don’t forget to check out my post on It should be up later today, and it deals with motivation, training, and why I picked a Triathlon, of all things, to get myself into cardiovascular shape.


  1. Wooo! I’m excited that you’ve reached your half way point & had a smooth stay for the most part!

    1. Thanks! I hope your chemo is going as well as can be hoped for. And man, I can’t wait to A) take a shower in a non-hospital bathroom and then B) go to sleep in a non-hospital bed. Amazing how much you miss the smallest creature comforts when you’re stuck without them.
