Finally Lighting The Fire

Well howdy. It’s been a while, huh. The last time we talked, I was feeling a bit down. Under the weather. Beat up, broken, busted. I kept my head up, but it was tough. Well, good news. I’m back. And I have some exciting / awesome things to share. MS Ride I think I mentioned […]

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 […]

…Just Kidding!

So, as it turns out, my next appointment was *not* 5/1, it was actually today, 4/24.

Apologizing is kind of silly – it’s nobody’s fault. There are a million reasons why cancer […]

Movin’ On Up!

So, after having my white blood cell count hover around 0.2-0.3 for a few weeks, Thursday, we got a little bump. It bumped up to 0.5. Nice, but nothing great. Then Friday, it hopped up to 0.9. Now we’re getting somewhere. Saturday, it jumped all the way up to 1.4. Today? 2.0. Whaaaaaaat. Go baby […]
