The Usual Apologies and Updates

November 10th, 2008 at at 8:25 pm by Brian

Okay, first off, the standard apology to those who have commented or emailed me and have yet to get a reply. I have a tendency to think I can do much more than I can, which leads to me either forgetting things or getting too involved with something else to keep up with things that I should be keeping up with.

So yet again, today is a new day. From this point forward, every email that comes in is answered ASAFP (since putting things off for too long makes it that much harder for me to do them) and every comment answered as soon as I see it’s there. I’m trying to turn a new leaf here, so have some patience.

Part of that leaf turning includes daily posting. I’ve tried to do it in the past, knowing that I’d slip up at some point and miss a few days, then a few weeks, then a few months, etc. This time, I’m doing it with the knowledge that I won’t. Let’s hear it for positive thinking!

Of course, there’s always a catch. While I’ll be answering emails and comments as soon as possible, any sent from Thursday through Monday might still have a bit of a delay. I’m going to be heading down to Louisville, KY this weekend for Hodgeapalooza II: Hillbilly Edition! But as soon as I get back, the answering resumes! Unless I have internet access somewhere, in which case, updates from the road!

Next on the agenda: ME! Health-wise, things are still good on the cancer front. I had a clean PET before I went to Texas and I have a bloodwork-and-visit-only followup later this month. Tooth-wise, it hasn’t been so great.

About a week before I left Texas, one of my wisdom teeth started hurting. That’s right – September. Tylenol was keeping it under control pretty well other than a couple of really hellacious days (usually on a weekend). Why didn’t I just go to the dentist? Well, I don’t like my dentist. And not in that “I don’t like dentists” way – just him in particular. And I’m horrible when it comes to finding new doctors and making appointments and such.

So last week, I finally had enough and found someone and got in for a look. Turns out both wisdom teeth on the left side are going to have to come out. I’ve already had the two on the right out, so I’ll be dropping from half-wise to not wise at all. Fortunately for you (and the makers of Tylenol and Advil), they won’t be coming out until the 20th. So, if I seem out of sorts in Kentucky, it’s not just the bluegrass making me blue.

Other than that, things have been rolling right along. I’m getting a little better at figuring out the whole life/work equation, and I’ve been getting fired up about getting CiMB back on the road again. I was going to include the plans in this post, but it’s gotten rather long, so I’ll make you wait until tomorrow.

Hey, I’ve got to come up with material for a post each day somehow, right?

    Glad to see you back, Brian!! I’ll certainly look forward to those daily posts and the smiles they will undoubtedly bring to everyone — gotta love those distractions that keep me from working! Have fun at the Hodge-apalooza.

    Hey Brian – You most likely don’t remember me, but I used to frequent the Hodge board when there was a chance of lymphoma – I have been fortunate that I was cleared. But, I still follow alot of people – guess you could call me a hodge stalker! LOL!!!

    Anyway’s, I had ordered a shirt for a dear friend of mine who has stage iv lung cancer and i had not heard anything back or received it, so thought I would send you a quick email to let you know I had done so. Paypal did go through though.

    You can email me back whenever you get a chance!

    Glad to hear you are doing great!!!!

    I love your post and there straight to the point I am new to this website and stumbled across it looking for information on adodmen and pelvic ct’s with contrast and chugged two glass of that water stuck like I did in my 20’s. I am looking for facts I was diganosed with endo stage 3 not the cancer but go in for pelvic ultrasounds regularly. My last showed a soft tissue nodule where my discomfort is on the left side of my pelvis, so this morning did CT scan called doc for results at 430 (had ct at 2) nurse said they were pending, but I over heard the lady next to me that was before me get a call from her doctor 10 min after her CT and told her results were normal should I be concerend that mine at taking longer. Please if you can give me any advice or education on this it would not be on my mind for the whole weekend. Thank you and hope to hear from you soon.
