I just popped by Cancerbaby’s site. There is a post up there from CBF (Cancerbaby’s friend), saying they are going to take the site down on July 15th. Thankfully, they are running a bit behind schedule, because it was still up a few minutes ago. But it is going to come down and she was a great writer, and if you haven’t read her blog, you should. She was an amazing writer, and I continue to miss her and her brilliant posts that cut through all the confusion and laid the painful details out in the light of day. And, she was funny. And biting, and did I say brilliant? Go read her blog. If you read it before, go read it again. You usually have to pay money to read something this well-crafted and stunning and witty and bitter and funny and smart as anything.
Y’all should also know that I had one of those 3 month check-in visits with my oncologist, well, actually his boss because my oncologist is on vacation, and all my deets are good, beautiful and wonderful.

The old CA-125 comes in at a respectably low 8. And, as they say, I can live with that.

Beyond that, summer is moving too quickly. School is taking too much of my time. My sights are set on the wide open opportunities for hedonism in August, when my only hurdle will be hedonizing around my work life.

School is the classic balancing act of one course I really enjoy and one course that I despise. It will all be over in a few weeks.

I feel like things are improving, in little baby steps. Which is probably best because if they got absolutely great overnight, I may have been whiplashed.

There are more deep thoughts brewing. Unfortunately, you folks have to come second to my fascinating homework.

But don’t go very far. I’ll be back just as soon as I get this school work dealt with.

I hope everyone is having a lovely summer.

  1. Hey —

    Found your site through Cancer,Baby’s site, and have read a few entries. Hope you don’t mind me popping by …

    I remember well the balancing act of coursework & regular work & trying to go enjoyable things. In summer I took only those courses that I had to take for my degree that I thought I would enjoy, so I wouldn’t mind doing the work. Your approach – one you like, one you hate – is interesting. I’ll have to remember that if I ever go back to school.

    Take Care!

  2. We did take it down. At least we tried. Typepad is being weird. If you try to leave a comment it says there’s no blog; if I go to the control page there’s no blog; but if you go to the blog there is, evidently, a blog.
