This makes Tom Hanks in "Castaway" look rather tame.
 
#onthisday  is the feast day of St Brendan the Navigator, one of the Twelve Apostles of Ireland and patron saint of mariners, elderly adventurers and whales.

A whale of a tale, with masses celebrated on the backs of giant marine creatures, maritime hell visions and, who knows, maybe even another pre-Columbian discovery of America made “St Brendan’s Voyage” a bestseller of the Middle Ages and the Age of Exploration. But read for yourselves on:

Depicted below is Edward Reginald Frampton’s (1870 – 1923) somewhat symbolistic imagination of St Brendan’s Voyage.

How I lost my hair, lost a breast, and kept my husband! Surviving breast cancer takes dedicated support.

About 15 years ago, we had moved to Austin, Texas from western Massachusetts. My husband was on sabbatical from UMass Amherst, and I was doing freelance work. The only health insurance we had was the least-expensive policy that we could afford. It would have covered hospitalization, but not much else. So when I thought I had found a breast lump, I did nothing other than keep an eye on it.

But my husband had lost his mother to breast cancer. He pushed me to go see a doctor. I didn't want to. Soon after, he begged me to see a doctor. That led to a mammogram and then an unplanned ultrasound, followed by a spontaneous talk with the radiologist who practically ordered me to get a surgeon right away. We were suddenly on the fast lane to cancer treatment.
My husband became my caregiver, cheerleader, patient advocate, chef, driver, housekeeper - all while doing research and keeping up his professional commitments.

He kept a journal, and from this he wrote a book, "Of This Sad Time." He wrote this for men who are supporting anyone in treatment for breast cancer, and included tips on how to deal with doctors, nurses, health techs, and stubborn patients (like me.)

"Of This Sad Time" by Karl D. Stephan is available in paperback and on Kindle.
