Popping Cancer update: quick hit!

By the end of this week, we'll know all we need to know.

It turns out the sarcoma this time around was caused by the radiation (and chemotherapy) I got in high doses to kill the Hodgkin's Disease I had from ages 18-26. Makes sense. Radiation causes cancer - that's why we don't vacation at Three Mile Island. Radiation cured and caused.

Here's a depressing thought. If I do die from this thing after a three-year battle, I will have spent nearly a third of my life fighting cancer. Neat. I better live, or at least get my money back.

Happy thoughts.

I have an update coming in the next day or two on my tactics for surviving the first time around. In the meantime, we'll return you to the cultural part of our blog. I even have another disturbing photograph for Joel, since he loved the last. If you are new here, and want to catch up on the cancer thing, I've introduced a topic heading in the right sidebar that will take you to the cancer posts exclusively. Go team!

Oh, and forgive the uncharacteristic political post below. Respond to it, but forgive.
