fine thanks

The last couple of days have been great. I’ve been feeling well. Also somehow managed to play a cumulative 10 hours of straight pool with my new friend Jeremiah.

After my visit to the doc on monday for a top up of erbitux, he told me that my skin was bad enough to warrant a couple of days worth of tetracycline (antibiotic), which does seem to have helped the situation a little.  I’m getting used to looking like a teenager (albeit a sort of furry one), and it’s not hurting nearly as badly.  The only drawback with the tetracycline is that it’s an immunosuppressant. So as the chemo drugs do their work and build up in my system, knocking down my white cell count and etc, it will not be possible to take the stuff like candy.

Two more lovely days before I head back in for more.  Three more dinners!  Tonight will be tacos.   Steak AND fish (in separate tacos mind you!  I just didn’t have enough left over hanger steak to marinate for the number of people eating.. soo  surf and turf taco platter!  ha!) .  MMM.  Haven’t decided about tomorrow yet, though we HAVE decided that tomorrow evening we’ll go pick up a x-mas tree.

That’s all.

Oh.  This is my new friend Jeremiah.  He’s a super classy guy, and a pretty good pool player!

  1. Yes Jeremiah may be a pretty classy guy and a good friend but does he help you drink your wine?!

    Joy to the World!

    Glad you are feeling well. Loved the photos today. Five years from now I want to sit down and have a drink with you and sample some of those tacos.

  2. Glad to hear you’ve had a good day – and managed TEN HOURS of pool! Much more fun than laying around in the park, eh :-))

    Wishing good things for you Ezra, always.

  3. You’re looking good! Nice to see those baby blues are shining brightly. If you could bottle your spirit and give it away for Christmas no one would want an iPad.

  4. Heya Ez,

    Glad you are feeling better 🙂 Need pics of the tree when you get it!

    Shamelessly following your blog since I came across the awesome pic of Putney and the Husky 🙂

  5. Hi Ez,
    Been following your words, bikes and pictures for several years now and found your descriptions of your various trials very moving. We have just got my Dad’s diagnosis with oesophageal cancer and I keep re-reading the matter-of-factness and courage in your posts which I know will help, even if only a little. I’m sure you get no small degree of catharsis from keeping this journal but rest assured it helps a lot of others too.
    Peace, health and the best wishes to you this Christmas.
