I'm back, sort of

What was expected to be found?

Polyps, pre-cancer cells, a large pre-cancerceous mass.

What was found?

Polyps, pre-cancerous cells, cancer cells, a large pre-cancerous mass far more exensive and solid than expected.

We talked to the surgeon last Monday. He got everything he needed to get out. Everything.

Random Obervations

1 While on pain meds you have some really strange dreams. How strange? Remember Green Lantern, the early sixties superhero in an emerald and black costume wielding a magical Power Ring as a weapon? His alter ego was human test pilot Hal Jordan. As a member of the intergalactic Green Lantern Corps Hal protected Earth and other planets in his sector. GL was nearly invincible against everything except the color yellow. He was also a member of the group known as the Justice League of America.

I did dream of more than superheroes though. There were student’s I’ve had, schools where I’ve taught, theatre that I’ve done and not to mention a whole lot of s#&t that just made no sense at all.

2 The IV machine makes a different sound on AC than it does on batteries. On AC, Hmmmmmm …Hmmmmmm … and so on. On batteries, pa pa pa pa pa pa Pa Pa Pa … pa pa pa pa pa pa PA PA PA. The things you find interesting when you can’t sleep.

3 Hospital food tastes like crap, especially the broth and the jello. Even the fruit juices.

4 Your meds will be screwed up at least once. Count on it.

5 The reading material and music you take will never get used. Don’t even pack it.

6 During your hospital stay there will be some things that you’ll never do gracefully or with any degree of dignity whatsoever. I just ain’t gonna happen, so live with it doood.

7 Older Black women still sing as they go about their work. I’d missed that.

8 I don’t have friends, only family. Family gets you through these little speed bumps. Thanks Mrs. Cg, Mom, Mike and Deb, Mike and Barb, Number One Son and Em, Number One Daughter, David, Josh, Tristen, Jon, Liz, Stephanie and Derick, Mac Gage, Jordi, Rob and Judy, Jackie P., Steve and Ida, Gerri and Terron, Stephanie, Howard R., Desi, Carla, Clyde Williams, Brad, Pat P., Vickie, Susan, Ginger and Jim, Ellen and Zoe. If I missed someone, blame the meds.

Bless you and your positive attitude. I hate hospitals. I hate going, I hate visiting and I hate how helpless they make me feel. Keep your head up and know someone in Seattle is thinking of you.

It has come to my attention that CG has passed away last month (approximately the 16th or so).

Sparse details (and contact information for passing on messages to his widow) can be found at:


I'm sad that CG never made it to a blogger's bash, or that I never got the chance to meet him otherwise (though he and I did trade emails, and he left the occasional comment on my own blog (http://www.cleavelin.net).

I'm sure I speak for the entire Memphis blogging community in expressing out deepest sympathies to CG's widow, children, family and friends.

His is a voice that I (and the rest of us) will sorely miss.

God bless! Hope you continue on the mend.

Just discovered this blog and others like it at "the ageless project".

Glad to know not all bloggers are gum-snapping teens or shallow twenty-somethings!
