1 Year Later, I got 2 words for Cancer
FUCK LEUKEMIA. Yeah, I said it. I think the above picture sums this whole mess up pretty well. Cancer can go ahead and suck it. Honestly, the list of people I have to thank is basically endless. If I start now, maybe I can repay the kindness by 2020. Maybe. First of all, my entire […]
So, as it turns out, my next appointment was *not* 5/1, it was actually today, 4/24. So, too far away to do the immune function test (BOOOOO), BUT, it means that 5/15, the next appointment, will definitely have the immune function test (yay!) as well as a bone marrow biopsy (yay?). However, a few interesting […]
Shows and Books I’ve read since Diagnosis
A frequent question I get usually involves either “what do you do with all your free time”, or “read any good books” / “watch any good shows lately”? Well. Yes. To all of that. And in case you were curious, I’m going to list them all, and my thoughts on them. I will pointedly not […]
Aforementioned Embarassing and Funny Stories to Tell
So, we’ll start with two stories. I think I have the energy to tell them both..but better not to dawdle on idle preamble. DISCLAIMER: Both of these stories are gross and/or involve discussion of poop, butts, balls, and other potentially obscene things. Do not read this post if you expect or desire clean humor. It’s […]
Nothin’ But Green Lights
Ok, so, yesterday I got released from the hospital. Despite getting 2 units of blood on Tuesday, and platelets at 3:00am on Wednesday, my numbers were still pretty low, and I was feeling pretty “meh” overall. I was happy to be home, but not feeling particularly great. I didn’t really want to go out. However, […]
Good news! Well…maybe not good. Not bad, though. Ok, so just news, I guess?
After waiting what has seemed like essentially forever, I’ve finally got some actual news. Decisions are being made, things are proceeding, and unfortunately, my days of wanton rare meat eating come to a temporary close. Quick Aside – Just hit 12,000 views. Pretty Effing cool. Thanks to everyone out there that’s sharing my links, it is […]
Bone pokin’, Number Updatin’, and yep…Bike Ridin’
First, I hit 10,000 views over the weekend. Real quick – thank you to all the people that I know, don’t know, met or haven’t met, that read the words here. One of my parents saw an article about how positive thoughts and prayers help people, even when they are unaware of them (dubious science, […]
Shortest Post Ever
Just wanted to post an update: FINALLY got to take my bike outside, and for once, it didn’t rain immediately. Got in a 7.5 mile ride, for 35 minutes, at an average pace of 14.1 mph. Aside from the distance (and I have more in the tank, but I’m playing things slow), that’s about the […]
Who is your Daddy, and What does he do?
In other words, who is coming to visit this site, and how are you finding me? First, I know that the bulk of you visitors are from the United States, and most of you know me either directly, or a step or two removed indirectly. Of the 8,300 visitors I’ve gotten since starting the blog, […]
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 […]
