My Thanksgiving Menu

Appetizer: a nice cocktail of steroids and three anti nausea meds

Main Course: 50 milligrams of Avastin

Side dish: 309 milligrams of taxol

Dessert: 717 milligrams of carboplatin

Don't let the biohazard label scare you off -- it’s gluten, fat and sugar free, ya’ll!  

I am grateful for modern medicine; what are you grateful for?

If you are feeling generous, consider donating to the organic soup kitchen, who is kindly bringing me soup every week during my 4 months of chemo. 

Be kind, do good and fill your heart with gratitude.....

    I am grateful for the humor in your post and for McConnell’s peanut butter chip ice cream (I know it’s not dairy or sugar free, but it’s worth it!)

    I’m grateful for my family, friends & community and sunshine 🌞 after rain 🌧 - it rains a lot here in Blighty but that just makes the sun the more glorious when it does come. And it always does😀

    Bob and I are thankful, as always, for our wonderful family and friends. In addition, this year especially, we are thankful for the resilience of people and the persistence of journalists throughout the world. And today we are particularly thankful for Michelle's eyebrows, her contagious smile and her loving husband.
