Normally I would look upon my plans for today and chastise myself for not doing something more useful. Somehow the routine of everyday activities are a comfort. I plan to bake a chocolate cake with Jess. (We started a new plan a couple of years ... Read more

You could be so angry with someone today that you don't even know where to begin. You realize that your emotions are justified, but your intensity level is more than some people can handle. Still, it's not healthy for you to just bury your feeli... Read more

The longer I am away from the hospital the better I feel. I had an appointment for an MRI today to take a look at my liver. My understanding the last time I saw the resident was that there was a shadow on my liver but they didn't think it was ... Read more

I have spent my day gulping around waves of nausea. I thought that it may be caused by the plumbing problems so I just ate lite. Well I just decided that maybe it wasn't the plumbing and that it could be the poison in my veins so I took an ant... Read more

Today is the first day since last Wed. that I haven't been feeling ill all the time. I have discovered that good old carbs have a place after all. You know the ones. Baked potatoes with cheese, sour cream and bacon. Chiabatta rolls with cheese... Read more

The information they give you at chemo school about constipation is no where near what the actual problem is. The word constipation does not even cover the severity of the problem. This is no mild occurrence that is solved with a little bit of S... Read more

This post is a reply to an email sent to me by a young friend. I'm sure she did not expect the response she got because I was surprised by my thoughts and feelings in replying to her note. I have removed her name just in case but the rest of it ... Read more

I spent most of the day with my sister. She is much more direct than I am now, not as direct as I may become. I am slowly letting go of the chaff and going for the wheat. It's funny how your focus narrows. I am unable to put aside the constant c... Read more
