Took a blogging break after my spouse started her IV chemotherapy.
It's been a rough Christmas break but we'll waddle through. She's lost about 20+lbs. Hell of a way to lose weight however. "Chemotherapy" is an oxymoron. We treat cancer like the 16Th century philoso-physicians treated the common cold or pneumonia. We don't know what causes the problem so we depress the immune system, make the person physically brittle, hold our breath and cross our fingers that all the "bad vapors" are gone from the body. I understand the theory behind this-used to sell oncology drugs for a major pharmaceutical house. I'm just bitter that my wife is fading in front of my son. She's a shell of whom she was a year ago. Folks this is bad stuff (I'd use an harder metaphor but am assuming that young people may read here).
The political season is heating up a bit. I watched a Republican "debate" last night and will post my reaction to it later. It was good for some comedic relief. There are some local issues that are moving forward. I'm on the Planning and Zoning Commission so my comments will be guarded at this point. School board seats become "open" (that's an oxymoron too) this spring. Any rumors on who's running yet? I'll blog on that too later.
Anyway, please keep checking in and contributing if you're so inclined. If not, don't forget this is my own personal view and I'll write from my perspective.
Adios mis amigos!
