Fetch Me My Brain Medicine

So the chemo is in full swing. I've got more chemicals and pills inside of me now than Keith Richards, but I'm feeling okay so far. The occasional spell of nausea sucks ass, but most of the time I've felt pretty good. One of my chemo drugs turned my pee pink for a day. That was sorta cool. The good thing about all of this is that I'm getting hit the hardest at the beginning, so over time my body should adjust to the treatment and deal with it better. More chemo Friday. I'm fired up.

I am Godzilla, my lymphoma is Japan.

    Glad to see you are keeping positive.

    Show that lymphoma that nothing messes with Iain Gillis and gets away with it.

    Except for that one guy who messed with you and then ran away, he got away with it.

    Actually, that was the only other guy who messed with you.

    After this, only half of the things that mess with Iain Gillis will have gotten away with it.

    Good luck tomorrow! Put that lymphoma in a coma.

    If you'd like I will bring you my Lionel Ritchie cd's next time I see you. I believe them to have healing properties. I can't get into it here. You already know too much.

    Hi Iain. I was going to ask if you wanted me to make you one of these, perhaps in a nice pink?

    But then I found this!

    which I think is definitely you!

    Let me know if you're interested...

    I'm glad you're doing ok too. :)
    Good luck tomorrow.

    Kelly - No need for the knitting, but thanks anyways. The first sign of hair loss, I'm shaving the works and going 'au natural'. I've always wondered what I'd look like bald. The English Fry-Up does look intriguing though.

    Giselle (I assume)- Keep your Lionel Richie away from my house. I'm afraid that they would infect my quite respectable CD collection.

    Pfft! I was just going to bring the cd's. Not actually Lionel in person. Let's be realistic, Iain.
