And How Are You Doing Today?

April 18, 2018 7 comments

Ok, so, who am I, and what should I do next? Out of curiosity, did you you ever ask those questions to yourself, especially the zen-like, first question? (The comments section is open, if you’d like to share 🙂

My last substantive blog post was on 11/17/17. In that delightful and uplifting post, I announced to the world that I was diagnosed with Stage 3B, Non-Small Cell, Lung Cancer (NSCLC). Phew, that’s a mouthful, but that’s the way it is in the world of cancer-speak.

Shortly after my world-shaking announcement, my oncologist declared that I had “advanced” to stage 4 – which meant that the cancer had migrated from its original source, my right lung, to elsewhere in the body. That “elsewhere“, ended up being my brain. After complaining about a painless, but noticeable, limp in my right leg due to an unexplained numbness, a full body MRI showed that 4 new tumors had popped up in my brain. Delightful!

After having each one of those little brain-shits blasted with radiation from Cyberknife technology, and having the four original tumors in my right lung assaulted with Opdivo immunotherapy infusions, I’m doing pretty damn well good. And this is 2 years after the fact! How are you doing today? 🙂


So, as of today, 4/18/18, I’m doing really well, both physically and mentally, for a stage four cancer patient.

I don’t know what, or when, or how often, I’ll be blogging about some topic in the future, but I’ll bet it will be about my experiences battling with the emperor of all maladies, the king of all diseases…. Cancer.

Coming Clean….

November 17, 2017 16 comments

Just in case you were wondering why I haven’t been blogging about Bitcoin, C++ programming, and/or dysfunctional management behaviors. I’ve decided to come clean….

In late February 2016, I was diagnosed with Stage 3B, Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC).

There, it took almost two fuckin’ years to get the courage to do so, but I’ve said it. Any kestions?

Yes, I’m serious; Yahoo Serious!
