Balls

[Sorry I haven’t posted anything lately but I’ve been too busy laughing my ass off at the sheer number of people who thought that neck tat was real. I swear I wasn’t trying to pull a fast one. It just seemed too ridiculous!] February 21, 2016

Breathe

[I have thought (as someone is asking me how I’m doing yet already looking at me with sad puppy dog eyes before I’ve actually replied) to say, “I’m good and in great spirits right now. Don’t be sad for me unless this crap comes back in the next 5 years and kills me.” Then I…

Bionic

[It was a long, tough weekend but I’m standing strong (and scootering all over the North End – watch out!). Maybe it’s because I feel bionic with my new PICC line. Round 4 got me my 8%. 5 & 6 will just be bonus.] January 19, 2016

Chillin’

Comfort

[It’s been a tough week and a learning experience for sure. Raw mouth, digestive issues, sore fingernails, very low white cell counts, and shingles. On my skin not my roof! 😳 I can see why Dr. M wasn’t worried about the nausea 🙊 With the help of @meganfrary, I enjoyed this soup all day with my pup.…
