Tuesday==>I want to thank everyone for the outpouring of support. Your texts, posts, emails and calls mean so very much to me as together we move forward to KICK CANCER'S ASS!
So ... we will move forward today with ...
Yesterday was pretty much doing the mundane errands and chores list and then the remainder of the time was spent in front of my 42” TV watching baseball, in hi-def.
I did, however, have an excellent walking day, recording==>5.01 miles.
Moving on ...
When I woke up this morning at the usual time I just didn’t feel in the mood to have my usual early morning walk and wander session.
Well, as I am writing this posting I have begun to feel really antsy. It is now 1:30pm and the temperature is 88º but the “feels like” index is up to 96º, meaning ... it is very hot and muggy outside ... not good for a walk and wander session.
Oh well ...
For the evening your favorite Sunshine State blogger plans to remain in the cool and comfortable confines of his new apartment to ... drum roll ... watch baseball ...
7:05pm==>YANKEES vs. BOSTON FUCKSOX, at Yankee Stadium, The House That Greed and Ego Built, in the first game of a 3-game series.
On the mound for the first place Yankees (59-45) will be Masahiro Tanaka (7-4) vs. rookie Henry Owens (0-0), making his first major league start for the last place FuckSox (47-59), who are trailing the Yankees by 13.0 games.
The Bronx Bombers have gone 6-3 against the FuckSox this year. Oh Yes!!
Moving on some more ...
You know, as I move on with my plan to KICK CANCER’S ASS (KCA) I have to share with you loyal and faithful readers and followers two major personality problems that I have that will make things somewhat more difficult.
The first is that insofar as health is concerned, I have a TREMENDOUS denial system that has been in place since I was a kid. This is a major problem and it almost had fatal consequences back in 2001 when I had my heart issues that resulted in A-Fib and congestive heart failure. I totally refused to acknowledge the symptoms until it was almost too late.
Even today, part of me is saying: “Prostate Cancer? No big deal. Now what time in the Yankee game?”
The second issue is that I grew up in an era where we were taught to never question your doctor and don’t waste his time asking questions because if it is important, he will tell you what you need to know ... otherwise ... keep your mouth shut. And the idea of doing any advance independent research on your own was simply unheard of, if not forbidden.
Wow ... it was really hard to write about the above ... oh well ... I just believe it will be necessary for me to be totally open and honest with you in my quest to KICK CANCER’S ASS.
So ... some more info ... and that is the new medication I am on ...
Bicalutamide - 50mg tab - taken once a day.
“Bicalutamide is used to treat prostate cancer that has spread to other areas of the body. It is used in combination with hormone treatment. This medication works by blocking the action of male hormones in the prostate, slowing growth of the tumors.”
During the first days of being on this new medication I experienced a bit of dizziness and fatigue (both on the long long list of side effects), but, happily, that is no longer a problem.
Now ... I have suddenly grown tired of writing about this ... so ... we will post and then ... dammit ... I don’t know what I will do for the rest of the afternoon but ... anyway ...
KICK CANCER’S ASS!!
GO YANKEES!! GO GATORS!!
Total mileage for 2015==>891.33 miles (average 4.15 miles per day)
