#TMIFiles: The Typo

I didn’t want to leave you hanging since you sent me suuuuuch great juju notes on my last entry. Had an INSANE day yesterday - my mind was spinning with all kinds of thoughts ranging from, “I won...

Super Annoyed and a Request:

My computer at work froze up on me after I spent hours on a spreadsheet that was making me insane in the first place. I decided to metaphorically walk away and write a quick entry to make myself...

Big Updates on Various

I’m still working on my End of Chemo story. It appears I got sidetracked by life. I suppose I should update on various: Cancer: because this is the biggest thing in my life going on right now. ...


I need to come back and finish my End of Chemo story. I hate that it got sidetracked by my sucky experience at work, but it was all going to come to a head soon anyway. I have a lot to consider...


If you read my entry about my annual review at work yesterday, I have a clarification to make. Not that it makes any difference how shitty it was, but our company is working with a new automate...


Late-breaking news: I just had my annual review as a surprise (!!!) meeting today. It got scheduled this afternoon and the location was my (new-ish) boss’s boss’s office. Cue the panic attack...


What a week it’s been…and it’s only Wednesday. Actually, I wanted to write an entry about my last week of chemo, number twelve, which was last week - a week ago, exactly. It truly was an incred...

#TMIFiles: So Much to Tell You

Oh my gosh, everyone. I am on a complete HIGH from yesterday and I can’t wait to tell you ALL about it. But unfortunately, I’m at the office and buried in stuff since I missed yesterday for my 1...

#TMIFiles: Chemo Brain is REAL

Hahah…leave it to my chemo brain to miscount even the simplest of things. In my countdown to the last chemo I actually got the days wrong! Regardless, last FOLFOX chemotherapy for this GD CRC be...

#TMIFiles: The Countdown

This morning I noted it on Instagram - I’m now in the countdown for my final FOLFOX chemo treatment! 7 days until my 12th and final infusion begins (this is when I’ll celebrate because I’ll be ...

Donut Cowboy Disappointment

Out on my morning walks with Martini this weekend and ran into the Donut Cowboy both mornings! Yesterday we did a long walk, taking the longer trail outside of the park and around the college gro...

Army of Arms

Did I tell you all about spending all of this time trying to go through my company’s Employee Assistance Program (EAP) to find a therapist to help me wrap my head around all of the shit that’s go...

Angels as Bartenders

Where were we? Last I wrote was the morning of Chemo #11. It’s kind of weird to say, but it was a good one. I’ll tell you why: It’s nearing the end of this chemo treatment. My oncologist visit...

Like a Walk in the Park

Had the loveliest, loveliest weekend, y’all. I seriously did NOT want it to end. I even stayed up a little late Sunday night watching Netflix just wishing for more weekend. I guess it really sta...

Update Vom.

I need to update many, many things. Work: Here at the office now. I only seem to want to write when I’m sitting upright at my desk with my multiple screens and with other work going on. I still...


Started an entry yesterday. I was so stressed out at work but I don’t want to get into why…it’s not worth the energy because it’s stupid work stuff that’s super boring to read and would stress me...


Hey - happy Monday! Another chemo week is upon us (well, me…but I’m taking you along for the ride)! Yesterday I started feeling the anxiety of what this week means. It’s weird because it’s Chem...


I posted updates on my head scan on the socials today, so I wanted to come back here and let you know that all looks clear from a vascular standpoint. The scans came back completely focused on t...


Hey guys, what’s the scoop? Agggghhh. I wait so long to write an entry and then I want to get all the things written down! So. My latest is that I had to have a brain CT/CTA scan today. Neat...


Hey! I’ve started an entry about 15 times. Life has just gotten busy, busy, busy. I like to tap stuff out when I have a free moment at the office, but lately there have been no free moments at ...

OMG It's Been Forever!

How long has it been since I’ve updated?! Forever! So much has happened since my “Nope” entry. I don’t want to forget stuff, so I’ve made a little list and I’ll have to fill in details later. ...

Nope.

Nope. I don’t like that video I posted yesterday. I tried to use it to help me sleep last night and some of the “bongs” on the bowls were jarring and kept me awake! I think I need something dif...


I got ahead of my work today (WOW! Look at me go!) so I thought I’d just pop on and say hello and that I’m feeling pretty good after a few days of the bluhs. I wish I could describe how this ch...


Monday. Another work week is upon us. I actually don’t have a ton of pressing issues on my plate right now (can’t believe it since I was out on Friday!), so I thought I’d write a little update. F...


Hello from the office. I haven’t written in a good long while and I finally have some things to report! Yesterday was my chemotherapy infusion #7 and it was a rough one. Thankfully I’m more than ...
