Hospital Visit, Poked and Prodded at MSKCC, and Mother Of God…THE PICC IS GONE
We’ve got a long one, folks. Strap in, and let’s get to it. Neutropenic Fevers Suck And I Hate Them And Also They Can Please Stay Away So, the last week (first week of October, basically), I spent in Cornell, recovering from a stupid fever. I had *almost* made it out of the neutropenic window […]
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 […]
No News is Good News
Howdy folks! Hope everybody is having a great weekend. Just a few updates; Round 2 of Consolidation So I’ve officially started round 2, and I’m technically on the second half of day 2, dosing wise. You’re supposed to get 2 doses on days 1, 3, and 5, but generally, they only dose you in the […]
New Readers start here
New Readers I have a feeling that many of you have found your way here from the column on Cycling Illustrated, from a TNT email, or other newsletter / link. My blog is (aside from one post) arranged in reverse dated order, so it might be a little difficult to find the stories that make […]
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, […]
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, […]
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 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. […]
