Thank you all again.
I just finished my third course of chemo, and it sucks. The best part is I only have one more two month course to go through, then hopefully it's over except for future screenings. It really hasn't been too bad with the exception of occasional nausea, but the last couple weeks have really sucked.
The surgery was pretty quick, and with all the drugs it was over pretty fast. The chemo is literally a slow poisoning. It'll all be over in a couple months though, so considering the alternative, I still feel very lucky.
After watching the news about New Orleans here the last couple days, it's kinda hard to feel like I'm suffering that much. I was watching the news today thinking about how hard it would be being sick and dealing with the flooding at the same time. I then went to my computer, and within a couple clicks I saw this picture.
Cancer patient Yvette Joseph, 48, is helped by John Williams Jr. in New Orleans as they wait to board evacuation buses.

Is that a doobie in her fingers?
I can't even imagine what those people must be going through. I guess the Superdome has fallen into near anarchy.
If you guys are fortunate enough to be able to help these people, contact the red cross. It seems the government and FEMA failed to plan or react to the numerous warnings over the last decade that this was a disaster waiting to happen.
