MRI #23 and Other Fun Stuff

MRI #23 and Other Fun Stuff

I was going to write a post on New Year's Day, but, well, ouch. If the weather won't make up its mind, I'm inevitably in pain until my body adjusts. Not that my body has adjusted to any of this back-and-forth, up-and-down, precipitating-but-not chaos. I'm typing out...

Seeing a New Oncologist

Today was for seeing a new oncologist. I waited a long-ass time to see the doctor despite arriving early. I never got the new patient forms in the mail (I suspect they went to the old address and...

Spoopy Little Christmas

Feeling down and run down today. So, here's a picture of Pipsquatch to cheer me (and maybe you too) up. He made the move to Mom's too.

Not Gonna Sugar Coat It

Things kind of suck right now. I don't want to list all the reasons why, so you either have to take my word that it's worse than I let on or think me a drama queen with a penchant for vague-blogging. Honestly, I don't care which it is. What I will say is that I have...

Moving Right Along

Less than three weeks to the big move, and I have so much to do I can't think straight. So, naturally, I picked today to start making some minor updates to this website. And even more naturally, I found out that somewhere along the way, I totally screwed up chapter...

Skipping Baggage Claim

Barring anything unforeseen, today I had my last appointment with my oncologist here in Urbana. My emotions are mixed. The move is an exciting thing I'm looking forward to. But if you've been reading my blog, you know that I have some medical baggage, and that makes...

Vesitbular Neuritis and Stuff

I am having a day. Actually, a couple of days. I've been wanting to say I feel like my nerves are inflamed for a while now, but it sounded a little ridiculous to me. So I finally Googled whether or not nerves can be inflamed, and I'll be damned if I didn't just...
