Winner Winner

The call finally came. I am in the clinical trial. Might have been the best call I’ve had in a long time. Thanks to all that said prayers for me to get in and to Dr. Hensing and his people for organizing the clinical train. Bring it on you no good Bastard! Jeffy is armed […]

It’s the Day Before Treatment

It’s the Day before the first treatment And the thoughts running through my head, Thoughts of Pain and Sickness, The prayers are being said, The Hail Mary, The Our Father and even The Glory Be, All said in hopes that a cure is very near. Sleep has been a challenge, and exhaustion is setting in. […]

This Feces Is No Longer Figurative

Well today, as the title suggests, Cancer just got very real for me. Although I’ve been spending a lot of time at the Kellogg Cancer Center, everything was still kind of hypothetical in my mind, it was real and happening, but still somewhere in the distant future. Well that distant future is right around the […]

Random Acts of Kindness September 15, 2017

Here we are again, another Friday and time to count all the blessings that have been bestowed on me this past week. This is quickly becoming my favorite thing to write about. This past week has been awesome. I’m not sure where to start so I will go in the order that things happened, and […]

Should I Be Concerned?

I’ve literally been to more doctors in the past 10 days than I have seen in my previous 50 years of being on earth. If I don’t find humor in this fact I think I would curl up in a fetal position and just lay in bed and cry. The other not so funny thing, […]

Not So Fast My Friend!

I am not the brightest bulb in the socket or the sharpest knife in the drawer, however I am learning that cancer and the treatments for cancer don’t really care about my time lines. On Monday I was told that I was accepted into a clinical trial that quite frankly had me pretty excited. In […]

Random Acts of Kindness August 8, 2017

As I mentioned when I first started writing about my experience with cancer, there is an entire underworld of do-gooders, a world of people who just practice random acts of kindness for no other reason than the fact that they are good people. I am sure these people are there for everybody but it seems […]

Please Allow Me to Introduce Myself

It’s meet the Oncologist Day! One would think since the Oncologist is about to become one of the most important people in my life, a little more time and thought would go into meeting/picking this person. Granted we did have a 10 -15 min conversation while I was in the hospital to outline treatment methods […]

The Nuclear Option

Well today the fight got a little more real, it’s been almost a week since I’ve been discharged from the hospital and the follow ups and out-patient tests began today. It is always a little funny when you start the day with blood work, just doesn’t seem natural to show up and wait in line […]

What A Difference a Ten Days can Make!

How can a day in the past, seem like only yesterday but also seem like it was 20 years ago. I’ve been asking myself that question since August 25th. Only 10 or 11 days ago depending upon how you count, but a life time ago when I think of what that day brought to my family and […]
