Ice Cream? I recall the cartoon show “Fat Albert” growing up. I dare not speak the name of it’s rape-y creator and eponymous character’s voiceover. Let’s leave it there for now. I do not recall which character had a fear of having his tonsils removed but the sing that week was a catchy, “don’t be scared (of the hospital) you’ll get ice cream!” Spoiler alert – Fat Albert does get ice cream – we cancer patients, the kind like me who enter the hospital, do not. Unless it’s brought from home in this case which is difficult to do because I live about an hour and 15 minutes away. For those who do re ..read more

Upon leaving the cemetery: “Then shall the dust return to the earth whence it came, and the spirit shall return unto G-d who gave it. Peace be with you, all whom death has united in this field, the last home of so many departed ones. Peace be with your souls, which have been recalled by the voice of G-d to eternal life. Amen. Ezekiel 7, The Old Testament I’m very concerned. Several important blood results weren’t explained to me – those were just made visible to me so either it’s a good sign meaning the Piqray took care of it or it’s a VERY bad sign of my MBC having spread to my spleen and lu ..read more

“Don’t be a role be a soul” Ram Dass What you fear as you go through your personal cancer experience becomes realized for others perhaps in a similar or very different emotional expression. The experiences as our time here in these diseased bodies unfolds and mine surprises me so much. My emotional state plays out so differently than what I’d ever expected. Do you feel surprised too? As each day passes do you sense wonderment as each blessing of a day passes? Do you fear today may be the last? Do you worry that if yesterday was your last day alive you’d regret every second of it wishing for a ..read more
