Hi.

I apologize for radio silence.

I think I mentioned before how the effect of this stuff is cumulative.  Recovering from this last round of chemo is definitely taking some time.  Thursday was the last day, and my stomach is still not back to normal.

Some nice little moments, however:

Yesterday morning.  I woke up and was suddenly clear headed.  After ten days of chemo-brain, I felt sharp, quick, lucid.

This morning, I rode my bike to radiation.  First ride in over a week and a half.  Even those of you who ride bikes daily experience that child-like AWE when you first get on your bike in the morning..  It glides, it swoops..  magically you stay upright.  It’s heaven.  All I can say is that when you take some time off, that feeling is amplified.

That’s it for now.  More tomorrow.

It’s a sad and beautiful world.

  1. Glad to read something from you

    I was thinking of you this morning while out running errands, wondering, wishing and hoping you were doing well. – I was hoping for an update today. Thanks – Glad you were able to get back on the bike this morning. This week of treatment then vacation, right????

    As, always sending good thoughts –

  2. go fastboy!! you’re gonna have some niceass weather down there too! it’s been great ridin’ up here in boston as well. glad you’re feelin’ better, man!

  3. Good evening, buzz off to everybody…

    Thank you for reminding me of this movie. I think I may need to watch it tonight. Also, I haven’t listened to Tom nearly enough lately. Does it make sense that Tom Waits seems out of place in Florida? Sunshine and Tom Waits… Hmm.
    I’m so glad you’re back on your bike today!

  4. Well that clip is just lovely.

    As a fibromyalgia sufferer, I’m familiar with the fog. And I can tell you, the pain has never brought me to tears but the frustration with the fog has. When it lifts, in that moment, I would swear to you I could fly.

    So I’m really glad you’re feeling better.

  5. The postings on your blog are proving to be a great inspiration to me and not least when I’m about to set off on one my regular training sessions – every other day now and rising…

    Ran the Chippenham Half Marathon ( 13.1 miles ) last Sunday and completed the course in 2hrs 10mins.

    A personal best for me – having managed to knock 3 mins. off my Bath Half time back in March.

    Hope this bodes well for New York – the challenge being to knock 9mins. off London and run the marathon in under 5 hrs – and with just over 6 weeks left to the race – I shall certainly have you in the forefront of my mind as I “up the ante” in preparation of the big day.

    You too are into your final strait and with just a few more days of radiation to go – the finishing line is well within your sights.

    We’re holding good thoughts for you Ezra and greatly look forward to your next posting and pearl of wisdom… as we continue to hang on your every word.

    Big love and stay golden,

    Laura et al. xx
