“I busted a mirror and got seven years bad luck, but my lawyer thinks he can get me five.” ~Steven Wright

(One reason I like the quote in the title is that many years ago I opened a comedy show for Steven Wright!)

After tomorrow I am halfway through the first fifth of hell.

  1. Six weeks of chemoradiation
  2. Eight to ten weeks of no active treatment, just feeling like shit
  3. Surgery (hopefully)
  4. Up to four months with a colostomy and chemotherapy
  5. Surgery (to remove colostomy)

And then more of the unknown, potentially cancer free.

Typically I would not celebrate completing one-tenth of anything, but these days I celebrate just being able to get up on that radiation table each day. Maybe I will celebrate by going commando tomorrow …
