Okay, folks,

In just a couple of hours, me and the woman are gonna be headed off to the BCCA and then I am gonna spend a few hours on the sharp end of a needle.

So, here’s the thing… I have no idea how this is going to feel or how I am going to feel or any of it. The word on the street is, everyone is different when it comes to how they react to chemo. So, I just don’t know.

Please be patient with us if we don’t respond to phone calls or e-mails very quickly. Well, neither of us have ever been good with that stuff, but expect us to be worse than normal and maybe you won’t be disappointed.

I have no idea whether I will be able to handle visitors today, or tomorrow or a few weeks from now. I am going to have to take everything as it comes from now on. And yeah, the Reverse Quarantine is in effect at our place now. If you are sick, have just been sick, or were just with someone who was sick, please use the phone to visit with us. Please try to remember that my immune system is in a wrestling match with Voldemort and I am not going to be able to fight off that cold you are almost over. Please don’t be offended if you show up on our doorstep and we say can’t visit right now.

So, that’s all for now. I am going to go spend a bit of ‘quality time’ with Elaine before we get all hooked up to some spooky juice and wake up bald.

Roger Dodger.
Over and out.

  1. My thoughts and cares are with you today Spike.

    Love to you both.

  2. Love and hugs to you both

  3. Love, hugs, thoughts something close to prayers and food are out there to you both. We will call on Tuesday just to check in and maybe slip things thru the mail-slot. Even though you two seem less than comfortable with allowing all of us to ply you with food etc… it really feels great to be able to do something. Anything. I think I feel the same way as many many people.

    I just thought I’d post to your blog these thoughts as I feel a collective breath being held for you two today.

    And since I’m on the topic – how about I volunteer to help you make a “help everyone feel better list” – kind of like registering for a wedding – but not really. Sort of a list for well wishers and people who hate to feel powerless. I’ll call Tuesday/ Wednesday.
