My family and I live in Minneapolis Minnesota. This is a blog about my fight with Cancer. I hope to share about my experience with treatment, my life with my beautiful family, and this crazy adventure called life. Oh, and we love doughnuts!

Week One Done

With this week done I only have 5 weeks of brain zapping left. I get treatment Monday thru Friday, and luckily I have the weekends off which is good for the holiday season. I am done the day after my birthday which is cool, though it would be fun to have my last blast on my birthday. Well as they say in France, "cest la vie." 

Kim and the kids are doing good. No, scratch that, they are killing it. Fucking killing it. Thinking about how much Kim has done for me this past month, and how well the kids have handled the craziness is bringing tears to my eyes. To say that I am a lucky man is a gross understatement.

I had my first rough night of sleep due to the Chemo, but I think a bunch of Christmas Eve food and a late night convo also played a part in that. That being said, I am hopeful that tonight will be a much better night. Overall I am am feeling pretty darn good. Which, as I have said before, feels so weird to say. To be in the battle against Cancer while feeling as good as I currently do feels like a contradiction in terms.

Tomorrow I start week two of radiation. I am taking my parents who are in town to meet the radiation techs and see the process. It feels a bit like the first time they visited me at college, just a heck of a lot more complicated. 

The fight continues on!

An assignment! When you have a chance to show a stranger a small act of kindness take it. Buy someone's coffee, pay for someone's gas, or pick up someone's bill while at a restaurant. Trust me, it will feel good.
