You may notice that my writing on this site has many ebbs and flows. That’s because I have blood cancer and my ability to think and write ebbs and flows with the factors of my treatment. During my week of chemo and the week after I’m sort of a blob.

There is a strong possibility that my treatment will change and surely that will have an effect on my writing. We think the chemo treatments of the last four months have not accomplished much. Whether that means that we need a different treatment for the disease, or that we have misdiagnosed the disease, or exactly what, we don’t know. The road is long with many a winding turn.

Meanwhile — though I have not gotten better — I have also not gotten worse. That gives us some hope. I’ll write when I can. I have the tenacity of the typical gadfly.
