Today is a bad day. So, I'm taking a moment to laugh about two horribly inept attempts at interacting I've received recently. Humans are fascinating creatures, you guys. Last month, two friends and my therapist (yes, I have a therapist. I had cancer: OF COURSE I have a therapist) talked me into trying online dating.… Continue reading But…Does this EVER work for them?
Yesterday I had a couple recovery milestones worth writing about. I had a "survivorship" appointment with oncology, and all my tests confirm I'm pretty much back to normal (in my case, I suppose abnormal is the correct word but we're talking physically, here, not mentally) other than fatigue/stamina. So other than seeing my oncologist every… Continue reading This. Is. (not) SPARTA
If you've seen The Matrix (which sadly I can't assume anymore because it's now a movie old enough to drink legally and likely makes me out of touch with pop culture references), you'd say I had a glitch this morning. It's not the first time: I get deja vu regularly, and it's weird every time.… Continue reading Deja Vu Slalom
This isn't a real post...just a quick update because I haven't posted for a while. To be honest, I haven't had much that's terribly interesting to write about. The last two weeks have been a series of naps punctuated by lake time, inappropriate shopping, work, and surgery (in that order). I took an excellent socially… Continue reading Vacation and Indignities
Today was my last day of radiation therapy. As promised, it was significantly easier than chemo, but I'm not normal either. Well, that's a stupid turn of phrase for me...I'm never normal. Um...it's not as easy as no treatment, let's go with that. The first 2.5 weeks were deceptively easy with only a weird reverse… Continue reading Thus Ends Frankenboob
This isn't a real post. If you've been keeping up, you already know I grilled the spicy fly nest I found in the lid of said grill over the weekend. Then I grilled the wasp investigation team that filled up the grill on Sunday to check out the dead nest. Yes, I'm mean. No, I'm… Continue reading Update: Invasion
File this under "things that sound made up, but aren't" and "why doesn't this shit happen to anyone else". Yesterday, I grilled wasps, but not for dinner. I mean, I know eating bugs is a thing in some cultures (no, I never tried fried grasshoppers, even when I lived in Houston). I know people like… Continue reading Yesterday, I Grilled Wasps
My radiation appointments are the same time every day, which means I see the same people in the waiting area every day. Three of us have the 8:10/8:20/8:30 time slots. Today the dude after me said "the other day you were a Norwegian Goddess*" and went on to talk about how he recently discovered Norwegian… Continue reading Even Valkyries Have Doctor Appointments
I'm on a break between the end of chemo and the beginning of radiation, other than a quick and painless CT scan and pillow mold I did last week. I still have some yew-poisoning side effects: the tinglies in my fingers and toes isn't completely gone, I'm easily worn out, and my finger and toe… Continue reading Random Update
Not my last port stick, but last time I'm hooked up to an IV tower. Yes, we all wear masks the whole time, now. Check out my total lack of eyelashes! Disclaimer: I didn't sleep until 5am today (3 whopping hours WOO) because I'm out of sleep aids for the steroid chemo day insomnia. This… Continue reading Yes, I’m Tired of Cancer Updates Too.
