Saturday, March 30th


Supper at my parents last night with my uncle Kent, cousin David, Grandma, and Mitch & Rachel.  Of course Grandpa was still in the hospital.


Everyone rushed to see me in 2008, when I was either in a coma or sleeping.  I spent my 29th birthday in the Pasqua hospital auditorium.  70+ people were there! I couldn’t believe how many people were there for me. 


When everyone saw that I survived cancer in 2009, lots of people just vanished?  I was most likely in their thoughts and prayers, but most people probably thought “Oh, he’s fine, he survived”, so not the case.  That’s their problem, not mine!  Friends and family would visit me, that was great.  The real battle was just beginning for me!  Surviving surviving cancer was the tough part.  I worked my butt off to be where I am today, far away from where I want to be, “A Million Miles Away”!  If this is to real for you, stop reading!  I felt like gum stuck to the bottom of a shoe to some people.  That’s how I felt.  How has everybody else’ life been since Tuesday, February 5th 2008?  Kim and I, not so good thanks for asking! 


Yeah, I could be in a lot worse position, dead, paralyzed, blind, etc.  When I was doing my therapy quite a few people came to see me, ask what I needed, bent over backwards for me and I thank you all so so much.  Tim came from Edmonton 2 or 3 times a year, Rob and Diane did as well.  Mitch was there quite a bit of course and always offered to come and see/help me in any way possible through my therapy.  My boss was calling my parents for two years, etc.  Everyone got to grow up and have kids, I missed out on all of it.  I’m not trying to push anyone out of my life.  This is my 2nd chance at life, so I’d better make it worth living.


Nobody could really “help” me.  I had to do it with as much help as Kim could give me.  She was with me every second of everyday that just probably sucked for her!  I’m not done trying though or else this blog wouldn’t have been started. That’s why I have to exercise constantly!  What do you all do everyday?  Even when I’m not exercising I’m working out.  How easy is it for you to get a dish off the 2nd shelf of an upper cupboard?  It used to take me 5-7 tries, now it’s 1-2 tries for me to stand up and get something!  How much energy do you spend standing in front of the sink brushing your teeth with one hand on the counter while the other hand opens the toothpaste and mouth wash?  I bet most of you don’t even think about it.


I’m not mad at anyone in particular, just needed to vent.  I’m allowed to be angry at the world once in a while, right?  Please read the link at the bottom at least and make people aware of this!!! 100 greatest debut albums.  Most of I agree, some I’ve never heard of and a few that did nothing influence music in any way.  I’m sure you’ll feel the same way. Sam after a stroke on medication, look what happens. Dog shaming.  They run the household.

Alter Bridge 4th album and a box set to be released this year.  Tour hopefully in September!

Please, please support this cause. Pass this link on to anyone and everyone.  This is a person who for years had a worse day than EVERYBODY!  Pass this onto people through your email, twitter, face book, etc., however you choose.  Just pass it on, please.

  1. WOW! That Sam and Sally video is amazing!! Reminded me of a couple I know. It’s amazing what love and devotion can do. I hope things just keep getting better for them. Looks like they will work hard together and it will. Very touching story, thanks for posting that Chris. Happy Easter!
