Today, about five and a half months after starting chemo, they de-ported me! The lump that adorned my right shoulder is gone, along with the tube leading to my heart!

My head is cold! How do short-haired guys tolerate this winter weather?
After a few very short weeks of wondering when it would happen, hair started falling out in clumps. Taking a proactive stance, I had it shaved today. Not chrome dome. More like stubble bubble.
Thought I’d be ready for it. I’m not.
Ah well, no turning back now. Might as well give this new wig a test drive….

Happy New Year! Prepare for battle.
Sometimes I feel like this isn’t really happening, like I’ll wake up tomorrow and be completely healthy. Like I can wish this away.
I know I don’t have a choice. Well, actually, I do, but know all too well how that will end and I don’t want my kids watching my body decay as it’s eaten away from the inside out. I don’t want to leave them standing around my grave wondering why, in the name of everything that is Holy, I didn’t seek medical help.
