Did Anyone Get That Truck's License Plate Number?

My surgery apparently went well on Friday, although it seemed to go a lot longer than had been indicated and I woke up to some wicked pain. They pumped me with meds and cranberry juice until it was time to leave (apparently even hospitals have last call), which was fine and dandy until the wheelchair trip to the lobby where the motion made me wretch up a single solitary saltine swimming in a pool of red. Lovely.

I've pretty much been sleeping non stop since I got home since I can't do anything and the drugs keep me pretty out of it. Fortunately, Mom & Sailor Jody have been doing an excellent job of taking care of Little Miss...hopefully I will be able to get back on my feet here pretty soon.

Dr. Niebler swung by yesterday for a house call, seeing a roomiefriend was just the thing to make me feel better, although this is one instance where laughter is not the best medicine since my abs feel like I followed up 5,000 crunches with a mule kick to the gut.

I should probably sign off now since I'm more than a little foggy from the drugs, but just wanted to let you guys know that my ovaries and I are doing swell.

Found you via Moxie, read through your archives. I'd b mad as bloody hell as well, even though life's not ever about fairness it's still very hard to accept isn't it.

I am fircely wishing you good luck and the best Fuck Cancer party ever.

mule kick to the gut, well stated. I'm hoping you are finding ways to rest up, and that you are back on your feet soon

Hey, B,
Word on the street, your cancer can't handle radiation and capecitabine worth shit. It's not that nice. Kick some @$$ cancer today.
Thinking of you, Niebs
