Over the past several months I have been fighting with my stint. My esophagus can’t stay open on it’s own, so they installed a stint to help keep it open. At one point I had two of them in there. Now I have three. Two of which have migrated into my stomach and has caused some major damage to my esophagus. In an attempt to fix itself, my esophagus creates this layer of mucus that is suppose to help it heal. What one of the side-effects is that the amount of mucus it creates causes nausea. That sucks a lot, because it is from the continuous vomiting that has caused the original stints to migrate into my stomach. Continue reading A time for a change
What does it mean to “Sugarcoat” something? Well according to freedictionary.com; sugarcoat means: (as a verb) To make superficially more acceptable or appealing, or To give a deceptively attractive appearance to. Now let’s put that into the context of this blog. “Living with Cancer” or better yet, “My experience in life with cancer” which ever one you wish to go with should do just fine. Just do yourself, myself, and anyone else that will read your comments on this blog a favor. Actually read the entire blog before jumping to conclusions and think real hard about what you’re going to comment about, you could end up coming across as a careless bastard or simply just a piece of shit. People should feel free to comment their own true feelings, yeah I agree, hello why do you think that I’m writing a blog about this stuff? To read what I already wrote and sit here with delusions of grandeur or some shit. If I wanted to do that, well my friends (hopefully by the end of this blog, I can still call some of you a “friend” or at least my other nickname for you “reader”.) I would simply write a Star Wars story and bask in the glorification that I wrote a story about Jedi and Sith that will never be published as canon and more simply publish it as fanfiction. So with that out of the way here comes the usual disclaimer: If you get offended easily, grossed out easily, or simply can’t deal with vulgar vocabulary and descriptive narratives, then stop reading now! I intend to speak my mind and I will not hold anything back; I will not be sugarcoating this blog. You have been warned!
It has been awhile since I have written to you. I looked and it was last November when I last wrote. So I have a lot to tell you. Continue reading A Letter to a Friend
My Wife and I went to my Parent’s house for Thanksgiving. I didn’t make it a well known fact, and here is why. My diagnosis has been going on for a year now, well over a year but really who is counting the days. So I figured that the people in my life that really cared about me and not some ego rating on Facebook or Life would show up. Sure enough the ones that really cared showed up and I’m not 100 percent sure that they won’t post shit on line. I would be OK with it. Continue reading Thanksgiving and Kindness
In past issues, we learned that I was working on some interesting projects. Well while dealing with medical issues (this is not a cop-out…..Not really) I have spent a lot of time away from my computer, notebooks, and such items. In other words, all the projects that I was working on came to a complete stop. In my absence, those projects have either changed in some form or another or I have lost interest in them all together. Continue reading Projects that fall off of the grid.
