Baldies' Blog began originally in the UK by a 26 year old journalist with a blood cancer on a mission to inform the world about bone marrow donation.

He has since died, and I took on the cause of making cancer care more transparent for everybody.

Cancer is a disease that will touch everybody through diagnosis or affiliation: 1 in 2 men will be diagnosed and 1 in 3 woman will hear those words, "You Have Cancer."

I invite you to read how I feel along my journey and
how I am continuing to live a full life alongside my Hodgkin's lymphoma, with me controlling my cancer, not my cancer controlling me.

I hope that "Baldies' Blog" will prepare you to handle whatever life sends you, but especially if it's the message, "You Have Cancer."

So much for that body training schedule.
I guess I should have included one or two days to drop X off at school and going right straight back to bed, especially if the evening before I decide to go all out taking him sledding, hot tubing, and playing hide and go seek before doing homework and having a family dinner.
Despite the extra quality time X has been "off."
He's getting whiny and irritable, which started last weekend after he got hit from every which way with the holidays.
According to my teacher friends, no child is normal during the Christmas season. They're all turn into crazed little people counting down the days to Santa.
He is certainly counting down the days. Each morning he goes to the Advent calender and announces what day it is and what's special about Christmas time today.
Luckily, somehow, he remembers it's really about Jesus, Mary, Joseph and God, but he still can't wait for Santa to come.
I'll write more tomorrow.
