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 may never see her again, but I will *always* love her!
That's how you know it is good news. Ed, you done went Whitney Houston on its ass.

Ugh! Now that wretched tune is in my head! Only my Black Sabbath tunes will break through now and set things right.

I had a rough weekend, not sure why. I went out to Johnny's Tavern Saturday night for a friend's birthday bash and since I was on "chemo week" I had no beer, just Pepsi and no ice. Maybe it was the nasty Pepsi, but I felt terrible until this morning. I had near-constant pressure and slight burning through my entire abdomen and the muscles in my back felt like I had been loading wheelbarrows with rocks all day.

Feeling better, I got outside and watered my cedar tree transplants and burned some trash behind the barn. It's a great day out there and nothing like a late January day that I am used to. Price Chopper is next on my agenda for the day. It's great to be feeling better!

Round 11 of chemo for me is tomorrow, starting with the blood draws and the needle being jammed into my chest where it will stay for two days, pumping chemo drugs into me. My first appointment is at 7:45 am. Ugh.
