Cancer Update: WTF?

Yesterday, I had the first normal day in weeks - awake and alert for about 14 hours!  Woohooo, I thought.  I'm back to normal!!!

So far, I've slept 14-15 hours, today.  :-( 

What the hell is going on?

My only guess is the 1/2 liver dying, and the 1/2 growing takes a huge amount of energy???

Cancer Update - Monday Test, Thursday Major Surgery - On Schedule

Just heard from the Hospital - by some miracle the Shutdown of DC Medicaid will not be delaying the Test and Surgery scheduled for next week.

So, tonight is my last night of self-injected blood thinner for the clot in my lung - blood thinners must stop 5 days prior to major surgery.

It is expected I'll be in hospital for 5-7 days, and then, I hope to return to the less restrictive Infirmary at the homeless shelter, but if nursing requirements are extensive, I'll request several days post hosp at Christ House.  TBD.

Cancer Update: Debilitated, Depressed...

It is as though I am existing to sleep - sleeping seems to be the function, the center, of my life - 12 to 14 hours per day, day in, day out.  Outrageous.

Why?  I don't know, and my doc does not know, tho she is not worried.  There are three things working on me that we know of:

1.  Chest cold that has been working on me for about 5 weeks.

2.  Liver, the more cancerous half, in the process of dying due to the deliberate blocking of it's blood supply 3 weeks ago; forcing the growing of the less cancerous half by up to 1/3.

3.  The unspeakable horror, evil, of the Greedy Odious Psychopaths and their puppeteers - Koch Brothers, Corp(ses).  This on top of all the other evil in the world, it seems more than I can bear.

I will bear it all.  I'll rise above, but for the moment, quite debilitated.

If the pre-Shutdown of DC Medicaid, Plan for me, stays in place -

Monday I receive major CT Scans and Pre-Op Counsulting at Georgetown Hosp.

Thursday - major operation - 12" incision under my right rib cage, remove the cancerous half of my liver, and the cancer in the other half - 7 days recovery in hospital - recovery of I don't know how long afterwards.

There is so much, even so much more evil in the world, I'm presently at a loss as to how to live.  My job at the moment is to absorb it, so I Deeply Know it.  Then, I'll be better equipped to know how to Serve going forward.

My God, My God, why have we forsaken thee?

He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."
