That still scares the shit out of me.
Sometimes the pieces of your life inexplicably explode. Most pieces land somewhere close around the edges, fairly easy to find and put back in place. But some pieces are lost forever, leaving a hole for all eternity. ...

But no, I'm not ready to begin this shit.
Some days I feel like I can do anything. Kicking cancer's ass is of course at the top of that list, but in general I feel strong, empowered, and able to conquer any mountain that moves to block my progress. And yes, mountains...

I woke up, showered with the special cleansing fluid they want you to use before surgery, then, after Stacie got here, Rachel drove me to the hospital. It was to be a routine surgery to put my chemo port in, so, Rachel droppe...

And sometimes, all you need is the goal.
"We're going for a cure." Words I was grateful to hear. Now that doesn't mean we'll be successful in getting that cure, but that's the goal. And sometimes, all you need is the goal. I'll be having thirty-three radiation tre...

You know, it's just life.
I had four medical appointments in three days. Two on Wednesday, two on Friday. So, Rachel and I decided to stay in Seattle three nights and have a day and a half of vacation, something we have not done in at least ten years...

Randy,
You know I really want to come up there. I just don't know if I can make it or not. The trip would be hard on me, but I think I can make it okay. I am not a big fan of flying and so much has changed since Dad and I flew out there when Nathan was born. I have thought and cried about it now for weeks. I have been having some bad days with my skin and I get so depressed that I cry a lot. Linda has offered to come with me, because I can't come alone. She can only come sometime this month. I don't know what days we can get booked for airfare and hotel and car rental. We don't want to cause any more trouble or pain for you or Rachel, but would love to see you all. If we can work it out, when do you guys think would be a good time for us to come for a few days???? I know you start next week with treatments, maybe sometime in the last two weeks of this month??? I am going to search things out in the next few days. Let me know what you guys think.........Sorry if I have been babbling so....Not a good night for me......
Love you❤️❤️❤️ Mom

The latest.
I was supposed to get the seventeen staples taken out today. Well, that didn't happen. Last night, at dinner, my oldest son's lunch decided to evacuate his stomach and intermingle with the dinner he was currently eating. Yeah...
