There's Somebody Out There!

Well, I received a call from Dr. Huebsch's office this morning, giving me a heads up that the Family Day Clinic would be calling me to schedule my chemo for later this week. Not much of a heads up, eh? And there's definitely a lack of coordination here. They can call and give me a heads up but they can't tell me the day or the time the appointments will be.


As well, when asked if there had been any follow up from the first series of chemo, I said no, there'd been absolutely none. (How could there be, if I can never reach anyone.) I'm now scheduled for bloodwork and an appointment with Dr. Huebsch tomorrow at 12:30. Communications seems a little one way here. I can never reach the right person when I call. But when they call me, boom, I get action!


Tomorrow, I think I'll ask for a specific name and a number I can call in future. If I have a month like I did in May, I can't just sit around waiting for them to call me!

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…

Paroxysm Paradox

The weather was unseasonably warm for October. The sun set around 6:30 but the daylight hours were quite enjoyable. So thought Richard, as he set out for his daily walk in the woods. He marvelled at the turning leaves which exhibited an explosion of colour more significant with each passing day.

But Richard knew the turning leaves would soon start to fall. And the trees would soon be bare with no leaves at all. And then the snow would fly and fall from the trees as the leaves had before it.

Richard couldn't help but think of the sudden change to come as a seizure of sorts. And he wasn't looking forward to it. After all, who would welcome a seizure, he thought, as he rolled uncontrollably among the leaves.

This week paroxysm/seizure was the prompt at Two Word Tuesday.
