Thoughts from Across The Pond
 A look back across  the River Cam, at I believe Trinity College (but don't quote me) in Cambridge, UK ED NOTE: I wrote this back in February... but never published it. So four months later, here it is. It's Saturday night. About 15 degrees outside. I've go...

A Quick Update
I've been toying with the idea of resuscitating this blog. Not sure if I will or not, but I find it nearly impossible that it's been almost a year since my last post. A lot has happened and nothing has happened. In that time, I've had four appointments, fou...

Five Thoughts from Someone Else's Hospital Bed
I'm going to try something new. Rather than write, edit, revise offline and then post online, I'm just going to write, directly into the post and see what happens. Let's call this one: Random observations from a hospital bed.... not mine. Well, the observat...

Scans and Resolutions
I wrote this post, as it'll become obvious in a paragraph or two, a couple weeks back, but having just posted this one, I held it so I could reflect a bit on it. In the interim, I had my annual scans which showed some slight lymph node growth. Key word: sli...

Keep the faith Mets fans #LetsGoMets

The Mets went on to win four of the last five games, and on October 27th, became World Champions. (Milo Stewart, Jr. / National Baseball Hall of Fame)

I Used To Be Disgusted...
 'Tis the season.  Not the holiday season but the season of end-of-year school activities. Beginning of summer fun. It's a chance to enjoy all the simple things that make summer great - longer days, sunshine and swimming pools, vacations and backyard barbec...

Health, Mental Health and Quality of Life
I went for a run last night; the first one I've been on in 10 days. A week and a half may not seem like a long time, but it's the longest I've gone without running since I finished chemo in 2013. And if you know me, you know that I have two keys to good men...

Cancer Patient Walks Into A Bar...
I bought a new grill. The old one was 15-years old and as my mother-in-law is fond of saying, "It didn't owe us anything." Parts had worn out, parts had been replaced. Multiple times. It was time. It's now sitting in my garage looking a little sad and lonel...
