Popping Cancer Update: the most recentest news.

Because of the root canal I got going next Tuesday, they're putting off chemotherapy until Monday, January 31. Mark your calendars.

I'll be doing a treatment that Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, then laying around in a puddle for week or so, then gradually regaining strength over the next two weeks, then WHAM, starting the whole process again.


I can break this down pretty quickly into good and bad news.

Bad news: They're putting poison in my veins and hoping it kills more cancer cells than healthy cells. Even then, there's no guarantee we can stop the cancer. I'll be losing my hair, my vigor (which isn't all that vigorous to begin with) and possibly my job.

Good news: The doctors office has free snacks.

You do the math.

All depends on what kind of snacks.

Well at those prices.. it ought to include free drinks too... (Snacks here in Texas just means food)

In Texas it means just food, but in America, drinks are included.

Snacks! Any Oreos?

Posted by: Ara at January 22, 2005 09:13 AM

No word yet on type and quality of snacks. Could be anything from generic to fudge-covered oreos.

What are they trying to hide?
