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!

Write Like A MotherF****ker!

In the interest of being honest I have to admit that I was considering ending this blog. Lately I have been tired and unmotivated to write, and as a results I was mulling over either a hiatus or just outright closing the blog. Luckily, my friend Libby came to the rescue and bought me the dopest mug ever. It simply states, "Write Like A Motherfucker," and I will accept her challenge.


I don't quite know what it means to do as stated, but Libby is an accomplished writer and when she says jump you ask how high. So I will continue to keep up this blog, and aim keep you informed on what is going on in my fight as well as my family's fight.

I had an MRI and Labs (blood draw) today and the results were great! My healthy brain tissue continues to heal from radiation and there is no evidence tumor recurrence. Clean as a whistle for now, which feels great. That said, I wish my emotions were not so tied to results like these, but alas they are.

Partly due to issues like that I started counseling last week to discuss these issues. Primarily, I want to come to better terms with the process of death, and I want to be able to get through a day where I barely think about Cancer. The latter seems like a tall order, but why not shoot for the moon.

Things are seemingly starting to stabilize here at the Heidkamp household. We are getting more accustomed to life with Cancer and Kim is still crushing it. She acts like she is not, but she is. She really has a lot on her plate and handles it so well. I am really proud of her. As always, I am a very lucky man.

Well I am going to leave it there for now. I could say more, but I will save that for the next post.

Have a great week!
