SPF: My Back.

I lied to Kristine and told her that I wouldn’t be playing SPF this week. I’m sure she’ll forgive me though, seeing that I’m now playing.

My Back


Wednesday I visited the oncologist and had a marrow sample taken. It is the worst pain I have ever experienced in my life. I’m actually looking for a woman who has both given birth and had marrow taken to compare them for me.

I should also note that this is the most unflattering picture of myself that I have ever allowed to be on the internet. To properly show off my bandage, my pants were at the exact level which makes my ass look worst. I may have to show you a better one eventually (if you’re lucky).

I’m seeing an oncologist because three weeks ago today, I had a biopsy done on my left elbow (pictures to follow when I’m on a better connection). 7 June 2007 I recieved a call from my doctor informing me that I have lymphoma. I’m going to do a whole writeup of the past few weeks eventually, but right now I’m at Relay for Life trying to build up some karma for the months to come.

I’m doing just fine, and the prognosis is good.

  1. Once I had an epidural. The doctor was a wack job. Now this was 20 yrs ago. They put a needle in your spine and then shove a plastic thing in and put drugs into your spine. Well you bend over and he pounded and pounded. It felt like a stake going into my back. He kept hitting it and said he could not get it to go in right. It hurt so back. I was even screaming so loud my doctor came in and held my hand while this idiot kept trying to do it right. I just wanted it to stop. It hurt so band. Then when I go into the operating room, I was going to have a C-Section, I could feel them touch my skin. The epidural did not even work, after all that pain. He didn’t do it right. But it did totally numb one leg, so I could not move it to scoot over onto the operating table. They then put me out to do the operation. So I think I have a pretty good idea how you felt on your back. But sorry this was so long. I played SPF too.

  2. Having someone grind through your bone with a giant needle could never be described as a pleasant experience. I hope they gave you some good drugs before hand… and after!
    Good luck to you. I will follow your progress and send you some positive vibes.
