Death on a Cracker, Revisited

Holy crapola, kids. Boy, do I ever feel sick.

My body has not reacted well to my most recent eyeball shot. My head hurts like a sonufabitch, I'm horribly nauseated, and, well, let's just say my eye is its own gunk factory. Not good.

Everything around my eye hurts - I feel like I've gone a couple of rounds with Mike Tyson, George Foreman, and Ali, all at the same time. I touched my nose tonight and just about jumped out of my skin.

I'm going to brew some ginger tea and see if that will help with the nausea. I have to remind myself, this is a funky-ass cancer drug I had injected in my head. I should not be surprised by any surprises that pop up...

Ugh... I have a funny feeling I will not be at work in the morning, unless a miracle occurs in the next seven or eight hours.


In other news, some wonderful person spent $53 on my Soviet pay phone sign. Gawd bless him and gawd bless eBay.

I trust that you don't need us to say this, but I'll say it anyway.

Hopefully you are keeping in touch with the funky-ass doctors who prescribed the funky-ass cancer drug, to make SURE none of the funky-ass side-effects are supposed to be surprising and/or not right?

Good going with the pay phone sign sale!

Hope you feel better soon.

Let me second the hope that you're better soon sentiments. This all just sucks - you have this happen and then see the underbelly of our healthcare system along the way.

Maybe we should have Merujothon 2006?

I'll sponsor Merujothon! Somehow.. One click a day, or something?

You're brave, what with those horrible shots and all... Hope they really work and you'll get better soon!

Sorry to hear you're feeling so lousy.

On the other hand, where can I get me one of those Eyeball Gunk Pumpers?

OH kiddo...I'm so sorry about your eyeball and your icky nausea.


Hang in there.
