In Memoriam>Good news [Lonewolf Ed]
Lonewolf Ed 04:51 PM 01-24-2015
I thought I'd start a new thread for updates on my cancer treatments and whatever else is going on, since the bad news thread title is misleading now.

My last treatment went better than the previous two and my chest wound is still closed up, which is a good thing. My arm is getting slightly stronger and I hope to resume lifting dumbbells next week. I need to build up my strength again, because I am going back to Denmark in May and I am extremely pumped about that! I'd like to be able to schlepp my own checked bag and not have someone else lifting it for me.

It's going to be a fabulous trip, 6 weeks and a couple of days for me. My brother is going along as well as my friends Chipp and Rod. Chipp is staying close to 3 weeks and has not gone with me over there since 2006 so he is also very pumped to be going. It will be Rod's first trip and he will be there for 2 weeks. I will get to be a tour guide. Also, I am throwing a party in my favorite pub of all, the wonderful, ever-magnificent Irish House in Aalborg on May 7th. The owner and I are friends and he will give me a little discount. We'll have Irish stew and brews in the cellar and I hope to have around 25 family and friends there. I might bill it as the "Fu** Cancer Party." A few months back, I was not sure I'd ever be able to go over to Denmark again or if I'd even be alive, but the cancer hasn't gotten me yet. I'm doing a number on it, instead.

Some other cool things I plan to do when I am back in my ancestral lands include a wine tasting in a castle, touring another castle and the northernmost manor home in the country, and visiting Skagen, the top of Denmark, where you can stand on a little patch of beach and have one foot in one sea and one in another. They also have a brewpub up there I am wanting to check out. I will start and end my trip in Aalborg and spend 5 weeks in an apartment I rent that is very close to the beach. I can hardly wait for May 4th to roll around!

I have packed most of my things for my trip and am very anxious to get going. My friend Jerome from Ireland runs the Irish House, my favorite pub anywhere, in Aalborg and in true Irish fashion, we take the piss out of each other. I have a joke that ought to rattle his Irish cage and can't wait to tell it to him. Here it is:

An Englishman, Scotsman, and Irishman are traveling together in the USA and stop at a pub. The bartender serves each a pint.
Englishman: You have a fine establishment here, but at my local in London, after the fourth pint, the fifth is on the house!
Bartender: That's not bad.
Scotsman: Och! 'Tis nothing! At me favorrrite pub, after the third pint, the fourth is on the hoose!
Bartender: Wow, even better!
Irishman: At me favorite pub, the forst point is on the house, the second, the t'ird, the fourth, and even the fifth! And if ye want t'get laid, they'll take ye roight upstairs and get the job done!
Bartender: Seriously?! That's happened to you?
Irishman: Welllll, not to me, but everytoime me sister goes, it happens to her!

I have most of my things packed for the trip save for last minute items to put away like my razor. I want a fresh shave before I go! This will be the last night in my own bed for over 6 weeks, but I can hardly wait! The apartment I rent in Løkken feels like a second home and the bed there is so nice compared to the tiny one in the hotel in Aalborg. It's not uncomfortable, just small, so when I roll over, I often wake up having thumped the wall with my elbow. Aalborg is a great city, but it is a city and noisy. Some middle eastern dude in the building right next to the hotel loves to play his damned music at 2 am. I'd love to set a speaker against his wall in the morning and set Inagaddadavida to play all day on YouTube to fix his red wagon.

And every year, at least two nights I am there, in the building across the tiny parking lot for 6 cars, around 1 am or later, some guy gets his gf to moaning like a banshee. I feel like yelling out the window, "Get her! Get her!" but from the sound of things, he's doing exactly that. My first night in the beach apartment with the only sound being the surf and the gentle ticking of my alarm clock, I just melt into that bed like butter and am out within a minute after saying my prayers.

I need this trip and badly. I am tired of feeling like my life is just one treatment to the next. No Ed the Cancer Patient over in Denmark, I will live again!

Thanks, and I fully intend to enjoy myself immensely. Once the chemo gets out of my system and the side effects fade, I might be doing a happy dance.

I saw one last year and got her on my video. She worked in a sort of German-style pub. Yes, I will be going back to see if she is still there! I will have my ipad along and make an update here and there.
