Have an Enola Gay Day

Well, it's Multiple Myeloma, The disease was detected last week, this week treatment is starting - irradiation followed by chemo. Or in other words is's have an Enola Gay day plasma cells closely followed by a regime of poisoning tailored to not quite kill you but to do enough collateral damage to be of some benefit.

uhg, that's horrible. my grandfather went through the same thing for prostate cancer several years ago. but his hair grew back all thick and curly, even though it had previously been thin and stick-straight. i think that's what he was most upset about, when all was said and done...

steve, i'm so sorry. if i sent over a cunt-in-a-can would it perhaps cheer you up?
