[cancer] The breaking of the ancient Western code

Some semirandom thoughts about yesterday's diagnosis, and a new round of surgery and chemo forthcoming.

  • This isn't fair, but nobody ever promised me fair.

  • Some contests you don't want to win.

  • I grew a tumor the size of a large olive while on chemo. How aggressive can this damned thing be?

  • Once is happenstance. Twice is coincidence. On the third occurrence, lift off and nuke the site from orbit. Unfortunately, I am the site.

  • My belief that I will not live to be old has deepened significantly.

  • If the universe is trying to tell me something, it's got my attention.

  • The next person who suggests I still have lessons to learn from cancer is going to be in a world of hurt.

  • Cancer sucks.

  • I am terrified.

  • Cancer still sucks.

  • Fuck cancer and the bony-ass horse it rode in on.
