  1. Busy Bee

    So. I start chemo Wednesday. Get a port put in on Tuesday. The chemo will be once every three weeks for three times and then another PET scan. If it's worse, chemo stops. If the same or better, they'll keep it up as long as I want to.

    ive been really busy. A trip to the boat now and then...lunches with friends and going over my "stuff" one last time.

    I joined the Illinois Cremation Society yesterday. Prepaid for my cremation and filled out the myriad state required ...

  2. ... and then the ****ing cat

    .

    It was an intense move.

    I had made the decision to move my son and myself to Oregon, away from his father, my friends and my brother Bob. To a place I had only visited a few times - what was I thinking?

    Well, I was thinking I was sick of LA, and I really wanted my son to get to know MY side of the family. They are, of course, much cooler than his father's side. Especially Uncle Jim.

  5. I can run like the wind...

    I can run like the wind. I am fast fast fast - faster than any of the other dogs at the dog park.
    They may be bigger than me, 85 lbs to my mere 17, but I have a very specific low-to-the-ground running style which took me a lifetime to develop. So, I am FAST.

    I'm Cody, and I live with my human in a big house with an annoying cat named Maggie.

    My human is wonderful, I am so glad I found her. She gives me delicious food and goes with me to the dog park. She doesn't ...
