I’ll Be Worth Saving – Living with Lymphoma, One Year of Remission

One year of Remission. That’s what the scan said.  It’s great news, right?  My Oncologist had a big smile on his face, The Lovely Bride and I went out for a celebratory dinner, and as usual – I was left questioning everything.  Searching for perspective in a sea of other people’s joy.  Wandering the desert […]

One Road, Two Directions – Living with Lymphoma Week 75

Retrospection & Consideration. Back or forward – which is the best way to look? There hasn’t been much time for me to look back.  And when I do, the things I see are strange. A guy on an Acoustic Neuroma Facebook group I belong to recently solicited positive things people had gone on to do […]

Green Courage – Living with Lymphoma Week 54

This article is for all us people dealing with illness.  Cancer patients, survivors, my fellow Acoustic Neuroma warriors – anyone fighting the good fight. I want you all to ignore the healthy people.  Just for a few minutes.  Let’s stop thanking them for everything.  Let’s stop offering them advice and understanding on how they to […]

Endings and Beginnings – Fantasy Novel Update

The new year is upon us.  No, this isn’t going to be another “New Year” post.  I hate those. As everyone else is beginning new goals – reading books, losing weight, eating healthy, getting in shape – I’m working on an ending.  I’m near the end of the “Junk Draft” on my fantasy novel.  My characters […]

Rainy Day Wordcounts

Rainy days are usually kind of a downer for me.  No bike rides – not even a chance to come up with excuses on days like today – though I’m going to get on the trainer while watching Shark Week this evening.  And just kind of a bleary day. However, *comma*… They do make for […]

Contemplating the Way Forward – Living with Lymphoma Week 22

The Future. It’s an interesting concept when we think about it –  Time moving forward.  The unknown.  Where do we go from here?  I think as a species we’ve always been driven by the future.  Driven by the desire to see around the next bend, over the next mountain, or a new shore.  Newton, Magellan, […]

Destination Generosity – Living With Lymphoma Week 21.5

Giving back… That term and concept really a pre-requisite of an initial “Give”, doesn’t it?  I’ll scratch your back IF you scratch mine.  A bad thing?  No, not at all.  We need to do better.  But we’re all wrapped up in our own little lives, right?  The job, the kids, baseball or soccer practice, and the […]

Vive le Inspiration – Living with Lymphoma Week 20

I want to talk a little about inspiration and dedication today.  First – Happy Bastille Day to any who celebrate.  What the hell does Bastille Day have to do with Cancer, you ask? Plenty. It’s all about inspiration after being downtrodden.  I would tend to say that I don’t have the best luck with medical stuff, […]

Virtual Group Ride – Living with Lymphoma Week 19.5

I told you earlier this week that I needed your help in keeping my DRIVE — my motivation — as we continue this fight.  Yes, you’ll notice that after the three days of recovery from Chemotherapy #7, I’m willing to call this a fight.  Man that was miserable.  Really uncomfortable during the infusion itself, then […]

Total Cost of Acquisition; & the Dog’s Birthday – Living with Lymphoma Week 19

I hope everyone had a great Holiday weekend!  I also appreciate all the check-in’s to make sure I’m okay since I hadn’t posted much in a few days – I’ve just been a little busy with other things, not to worry. I’ve spent the last week thinking about how I’ve been choosing to deal with […]
