As I've mentioned before, after a couple rounds of chemo I started this thing I called, "Chemo Karaoke" where I would sing silly songs on the way home from chemo. You can see the first round of those here. Now that I'm done with Chemo and that is a thing of the past (woohoo!), I … Continue reading Chemo Karaoke – Last Round
Today is a day that won't go down in infamy, but it is a day for both reflection and looking ahead. And first and foremost, remember when I said this way back when I told you all I had cancer for the first time? "I could end with some hippy dippy bologna about rainbows and … Continue reading I’m in that space now.
In 23 days, I'll have my last chemo treatment. Huzzah! That means that in 23 days I'll have been undergoing chemo treatments for FIVE WHOLE MONTHS. That's right, folks. Can you believe it? When I talk to people I haven't seen for a bit, they remark, "Wow, I can't believe you're almost done. It seems like … Continue reading Confessions of a “shut in”
Note: Who spells "Karaoke" correct on the first try? Never. Not once could I spell it right the first time. I hate spelling that word!

And this news needed to be shared TOOT SWEET, so I'm plowing through it because I just gotta get it out there. PET scan results are in! And they are.... GREAT! WHEW, big sigh of relief there. Now let's … Continue reading Good news alert!
It's Thursday, which means I have my ninth round of chemo tomorrow. Already? Yes, already, darn it. Some good weeks creep by and I'm happy for the pace. This good week? It went by way too quickly. Which, in the grand scheme of things is technically good...weeks going by faster means I'm that much closer … Continue reading #amdoingallthethings
I'm not known for short posts, but this one will be short. I promise. It's just a couple of things that make me happy right now. And this round of chemo hit me with some intense nausea right away, so it's all I can do to look on the bright side. So here we go, … Continue reading Things that make me happy today…
When I first started chemo (which really wasn't that long ago), my doctor told me that the best way to fight the fatigue would be to exercise when I can. I was surprised by this. And I was also pretty excited by this. Because, for the two months prior to actually getting my cancer diagnosis, … Continue reading Fitness during chemo (not an oxymoron, I promise)
These are just some updates. This is my attempt to keep writing/blogging something even during the bad week. First update: I took my friend Andrew to the hospital for a small procedure he was having done on Wednesday.
