I will never understand why Trump got in but, like many things that happen in Wire, I will learn to live with it. All I ask is that you, every single one of you, vote your mind all the time. The truth is always what will set you free.

BugHug: It's been a long 8 months since my diagnosis and 1 surgery, 8 rounds of chemotherapy and 16 radiation treatments later, I am finally finished as of today! I will need at least a month to fully recover my immune system and some skin healing but, for the most part, I have come through this with no lasting effects that I know of. Thank you so much for all of your support and well wishes. I am so happy to be done!

If you need me I will be in the back yard celebrating lol!!

BugHug: Quick update- I only have 4 more radiation treatments left! My last day will be April 23rd and I plan to celebrate with Mark Hopefully he is feeling up to it. He's been in hospital since Thursday awaiting gallbladder surgery. Poor guy is there all by himself as COVID prevents any visitors. It's his first surgery and he's been laying there for almost 2 days! He is in good spirits though. I'm guessing the morphine drip has something to do with that Just waiting for his text that they are finally getting him into surgery and he's not being bumped again.

I hope everything is staying well and keeping up with the social distancing measures to bring this COVID bullshit to its knees.

Party on

BugHug: First round of radiation today. No big deal whatsoever. If the cancer centre wasn't a town away, this would be such a piece of cake. The drive is nice though I must admit One down, 15 to go!

BugHug: I went for a walk today. My first walk since after my diagnosis late last summer! I used my new birthday present- walking poles- and managed to go 3.6 km on a hilly road. I am quite impressed with myself. It doesn't seem like much, I know, but I lost a lot of muscle mass and my red blood cell count was very low at the end of February so this is quite good

BugHug: Well folks, it's my last day of chemo. In a few weeks I should be well on my way to returning to "normal" (meaning I should be able to taste food as it was meant to taste, lose the numbness in my fingertips, regain some strength and stamina and perhaps even see some hair regrowth). Today I will ring the bell at the chemo centre! I am bringing cupcakes with me to celebrate that and the fact it is my 48th birthday today as well.

Much to celebrate today! Have a gooder!!!

BugHug: Yesterday was my second to last round of chemo. That part went fine- no surprises. It sure started off with a bang though when I accidentally scraped up some poor guy's truck when I turned into my parking spot too tightly. I don't care a bit about the damage to my own car, there was already some on that side, but this truck was quite fancy and it will cost a pretty penny to get it back to the way it was. Thank goodness for insurance! Happy to report the guy wasn't a dick about it.

BugHug: They say bad news comes in 3s. I have always heard that but never paid attention in my own life to know if that was especially true or not. This time it is though. After my diagnosis in August, my aunt was diagnosed in October with terminal colorectal cancer.

Today my Dad called. He has bladder cancer. We will know more once his surgery is done before the end of the month and his pathology report will let us know stage and treatment. I he will be okay. I need him to walk me down the aisle in September.

He is in really good shape though so he has that going for him. He bikes 50 miles a week and takes really good care of himself. This is just news I didn't need right now. I am reeling.

This is it now, right? No more bad news? I don't think I can take anymore.

BugHug: Obviously I forgot to update you guys. My dad had surgery on January 31st and he is officially cancer-free Also, my auntie is stage 2 and, although they can't remove the tumour due to where it is located, they can treat it in a few ways so it's not as dire as it sounded at first. Thank you so much for your condolences but everything is going to be alright

BugHug: Hi Wire Friends!

An update for you: I am currently on round 2 of the second chemo cocktail now (round 6 out of 8 overall). It looks like the last round might fall on my birthday lol! This cocktail has been so much easier than the first one. I still have fatigue but no nausea and it doesn't knock me on my ass for a week like the other one did. I have some numbness in my fingertips and sometimes my toes which is typical with this treatment, but I find I can ignore it fairly easily. I am really looking forward to getting my taste buds back completely. Some days are better than others for being able to taste things and I never know when those days will be! It is so weird what the treatment affects from day to day or week to week. All you can do is just take things as they come.

Overall I have been very fortunate to not have experienced the bad side effects that some people suffer with; no mouth sores, allergic reactions or, God forbid, hospital visits due to intolerance of treatment.

I find it strange to be complimented by the medical staff on my ability to tolerate everything, like I have anything to do with that! I am just bloody lucky I have a body that is going along with this okay. It's not fun but it could be a hell of a lot worse!

So a few more weeks and chemo will be done! After that, a few weeks off to recover and then radiation starts. The worst part of that will be the commute 5 days a week for 5 weeks to the neighbouring city (45 minute highway drive from where I live). The roads will be clear by then so I will try and find ways to enjoy it.

As of now, it looks like my timeline for return to work will be early June. I am trying not to think of the mess that will be waiting for me once I'm back lol!
