Muh Brayn in These Foolish Things

I’m writing another entry because I thought about something after I posted the last entry that I’ve been meaning to write about and I keep forgetting because… MY BRAIN DOESN’T WORK RIGHT ANYMORE....


Been nearly a week since I last updated. I wish I had exciting stuff to tell you, but it’s kinda been one of those weeks that have been almost like before times: Hardly anyone is wearing masks ...


Happy Saturday evening. It’s approaching 9pm and I’m already tucked in bed, all my nightly routine stuff done (including face washing, moisturizing and meds). I’m in the middle of recovery wee...


The Cyclist: So far, this guy seems like what I’ve been looking for. He’s attentive, sending little texts throughout the day (some people don’t like that, but I love the little check-ins), MADE A...


Name: The Cyclist Introduction Platform: Match. We’d actually matched 122 days ago and finally met today! Age: 56 Relationship Status: Divorced, 2 daughters (20 and 21, lived with him during ...


Oh shoot. I started an entry yesterday and then had to close out. I thought that PB would save the draft. It used to! What happened? How are you lately? I’ve been really good! Kind of shocki...


Y’all. I am the worst at being a pothead. I am scared of the vape pen and I don’t think I’m doing it correctly. I might try a tiny bit of a gummy tonight instead of the melatonin gummies I’ve b...


Yesterday I went in for Chemo Infusion #5. I did my pre-chemo morning routine - the regular workout at home, pack my ice bag (for the icing protocol during one of the chemo meds), take Martini t...


Happy Friday - what a freaking week. Work’s been sucky. And by sucky, I mean, everyone is in a tizzy. It’s a panic, y’all. When I tell you that it’s about to get really bad for consumer product...


Ever since my brain injury in 2019 I have made it a point to call my parents every evening. At first it was because I was afraid I was going to have a stroke and die in my sleep those first few ...

Moving! in These Foolish Things

Hey. How was your weekend? In addition to a sweet Mother’s Day with mom and the whole family, mine was mostly “recovery” and it went as well as one could expect when you have not a whole lot pla...


Hm. I can’t believe how long it’s been since I’ve written. I guess I don’t have too much to say but I’m feeling good-ish lately - I suppose as good as one can be while going through chemotherapy...


I’m at the office today and had two major meetings that lasted long enough and I feel like I’m just done for the day. It’s actually approaching quitting time, so I’m just going to journal until t...


Glorious Off-Week Wednesday! I have a whole week until my next chemo infusion and I couldn’t be more happy. It’s the in-between weeks that give me life and then during the infusion week I know ...


Hey. Hi. How you doing? I guess we last met here on my DISCO day, which was last Friday. I’m sick of talking to you about cancer and chemo bullshit, but it’s kind of what I’ve got right now, so...


Guess what today is? It’s DISCO DAY! It’s the day when I get Foxy (my portable chemo pump) disconnected from my chest port after 48 hours of infusing me with chemotherapy drugggggsss. Ugh. I a...


Hello!! Yesterday was chemo infusion #3 of 12. It went well. In fact, so much better than I was worrying about earlier in the day. Prepping for chemo with the icing protocol and making sure I h...


Well, hello there! Here it is, another new week. Happy Monday. TMI ahead… It’s Infusion Week for me! Whee. This will be #3 - which means I’ll be 25% done with this treatment when the week i...


The days after chemotherapy are kind of weird. It feels like a bad hangover, but without all of the pre-hangover joys of being drunk the night before. I sit here at my desk at work, nauseated and...


So much to report since I last wrote! This is going to be all over the place, so please bear with me. I don’t know how else to write all this out without bullets because it’s a LOT. Remember t...

Ten Things in These Foolish Things

Feeling good today. I still woke up with the slight morning sickness feeling, but the nausea meds do a pretty good job of keeping that at bay and feeling decent. A light workout gets the blood ...


Haven’t written since Friday, obviously. Haven’t really felt like writing. It wasn’t because I was feeling terrible, per se. I think I feel like writing more when I’m sitting at a desk and hav...


Ya know, if we’re gonna have firsts in this fight, we’re gonna make them sound EXCITING! Today is disconnect day, or DISCO DAY, as I’ve seen a blogger call it. It’s the day I get Foxy, my 48-hou...


Yes, the Mass is OUT, but this is now the fight to keep that jackass from returning anywhere in my bod. I thought about writing an entry yesterday while sitting in the chemo chair for hours, but...

Delta Upd8 in These Foolish Things

It’s been almost a week since I’ve last written and SO much and I guess so little has happened since then. Mediport placement: On Wednesday, I had surgery to have a mediport placed under the ski...
