Well, here it is Friday and I thought I should let people know what’s up.
Mostly there isn’t a whole lot to say except chemotherapy totally sucks.
It’s like having the worst hangover of your life for 5 days straight. Actually, that doesn’t really do it justice and besides, I have no idea how many days it will suck for. But so far I can’t recommend it as any kind of party drug.

Monday I had my mega-dose of chemo and Monday night wasn’t too bad.
Tuesday was kind of okay but I was starting to go on a bit of a slide.
Wednesday I came off the steriods that they give me to make me feel okay and I started to crash quite a bit.
Yesterday, Thursday, was rough. Today I feel like I am starting to climb out of the great big pit of feeling lousy.

I do have to say that people have been totally fabulous to me and to Elaine and I sit and cry about that at least 3 times a day.
You are all fuckers for making me cry.
Fucking fuckers.
And thanks.
Everything that everyone is doing and all the support being are giving us really make a huge difference and I have been blown away by how many people have just jumped in and helped. Shit, there are people being sweet to us that I have never met.

Anyway… it’s been a week.
I am hopeful that I am starting to slide up into a higher level of feeling better. It’s all uncharted waters right now, but I am feeling better today than I did yesterday, and I am happy about that.

I know it’s going to be a long, hard ride.
It matters a lot that people are being so kind. It matters a lot that people are doing what they can to help.

Sunday I get my head shaved and a few friends are coming by to shed their butchly and/or manly locks as well.
See, *that’s* support.

Anyway, the Little Woman is gonna feed me some grub here soon, so I am gonna wander.

Lots of people have e-mailed and I haven’t had time to answer everyone. Sorry about that. I am doing what I can, when I can, and I seem to be falling behind.
I do like hearing from folks, so please stay in touch.
