Catching up


Whew.  Lotta stuff crammed in one week.

First the holidays and ebook issues.  Then Thursday, I had some out-patient surgery to install this extremely convenient port through which they’ll feed all my chemo.   Some versions have permanent tubes sticking out of you, but mine is completely under the skin.  Which is nice.  To not have open pathways directly into your body just hanging around loose, you know.

Friday, I actually went to the Day-Job and worked a lot of hours, which sounds dumb, but a) the job is not physically strenuous; and b) I’ve missed a lot of oddly-timed days and half-days, creating some inconvenience to the department; and c) I wanted to make it clear that I don’t take advantage of the situation, and intend to only stay out when I really need to.   Thus gaining the cred for when I really must be out, possibly a lot, further down the line.

Result: Totally beat today.

I have received many, many kind and encouraging emails and comments, that I want to  reply to.  I can’t thank you all enough for the good wishes.  I’ll be catching up on that this weekend — I’ve had no time yet until now.  So, if you haven’t heard from me yet, this is why.

Oh, and at some point I really must go see The Desolation of Smaug!  Really.

    I am thinking of you and wishing you a speedy recovery. Cancer does not have to be the end of life as we know it. My sister-in-law recently survived colon cancer and she kept her sense of humor through all of the treatments. I hope you will too.

    My wife and I went to the second Hobbit movie yesterday. I enjoyed it very much. But I hate that I have to wait another year to see the last movie.
