Friends, Romans, Countrymen:
Sorry for the delay in updates. I fell asleep, jk.
I met with my liver specialist Monday 4/20/15. Yep 4/20, I thought he had been smokin that day. After over an hour of waiting and after Angela and I had played with every gadget in that office, he finally surfaced. There had been some technical difficulties that day. Luckily our google machines were working just fine, to keep us entertained like toddlers. Angela playing her different recordings of bodily noises from the exam room, hoping to get some attention early. Followed up by Beez in the trap, some baby goat videos and instructions on how to operate the eye wash station. We were there for a long time, trust me.
His suggestion is surgery in about a month. To maybe start removing some approachable tumors. We’ll see though. Apparently this causes some major fatigue. He did compare my liver to Swiss cheese I think, not from drinking though surprisingly. I should know more in future, as he needed to consult with my colon doctor and oncologist.
Stay tuned. I’ll try to get some new port-land videos going. My hand got tired from drawing…
hi to Kaya (my little niece, she broke her arm pretty bad skateboarding last week, she had surgery this morning-she makes me proud and her mother terrified)
Not much to report. Round six was somewhat uneventful. Catfish was starving the whole time and I was half asleep. Jen Wiese graced us with her presence, black jacket and all… (Sorry Jen).
my blood work looked really good this week. All counts were where they should be. The nurse was a little shocked at how good my liver enzymes, etc were, after overhearing Angela and Jen and I reminiscing about some of our late nights out in past.
I meet with with the liver specialist this Monday afternoon to touch base and talk about my CT and PET scans (meow).
My only lesson or tip for the week is this: “don’t try to drink anything shortly after using lidocaine mouthwash”. You’ll just end up choking to death… That’s all.
Hopefully angela won’t be as busy in future so the blog will look better and have beefier stories. We were just tired this week I guess. I’ll invite one of the kittens back if things don’t liven up.
Warning, I have no idea what I’m doing. I need Angela to fix everything I post. Port videos are jacked up, there’s a naked man in the middle of this post… This is a cry for help…
Well there’s not much to report. Pissy Kitty got married Tuesday and I’ve had two rather large pimples in the last week. Probably from the stress of the wedding, BTO (but the opposite). One of the latest side effects apparently is random acne. Oh to feel young again and like I’m going through puberty. A little less awkward this time around, I guess. My ass and thighs were smaller the first time. Yes Angela, it’s hard to imagine, but it’s true, my ass was smaller at one time.
I learned today that hermit crabs outgrow their shells, just like I have outgrown my jeans from high school… And then college… Hmm. My butt is just looking for a new home that fits, that it can grow into… This was just a plot to hopefully squeeze back into a mad pair of acid washed Jordache jeans. Thank you colon cancer!
Anywho, like I said, not much to report. I feel fine, for the most part. I think I look fine. Yeah! I have to avoid getting too much sun, as apparently one of the drugs I’m on will cause light sensitivity. My wizardly brother in law must also be on this drug, see above photo. Sunscreen: buying organic isn’t always better… You look terrible DragonLady! Icarus has nothing on you… Whoa man.
Stay tuned. More to come. Sometimes, on a cancer blog, less is more…
Yahoo! Round five is tapping, tapping at my chamber door.
My throat has almost recovered from talking so much Saturday. What a great night. If you missed it, don’t fret, there are photos:
That is the website for Michael and Theresa’s photos. Cella’s photos will likely be available soon too (I don’t like to rush her).
Saturday was quite a crazy, wonderful evening. It was nice to see many of your faces. Thank you to everyone again for EVERYTHING. It is so nice to know I have so much support. Teri was an excellent speaker, very inspiring, to say the least.
Now onto round 5. I’m ready to tear this $hit up! It’s a “Good Friday” to do this.
Feeling good still. Chemo went well yesterday. Went out for Trods birthday. Today we went to the women’s soccer match at Busch (US vs New Zealand). Great match! Now for some rest. Happy Easter to whom it may concern.
