I’ll stay on facebook, follow very few people, SORRY. I’ll follow mostly the musicians I enjoy. Facebook is where all of my music information comes from. That’s why, again, SORRY! My cancer story is long gone, it feels like it was a nightmare that happened 40 years ago, and I’m only 34! If there’s something anyone wants to know, feel free to ask. Most importantly, DO NOT CALL ME A “HERO”! I got very lucky if you ask me! I don’t have a clue as to what Kim felt from Tuesday, February 5th 2008-now. Brain cancer could effect the rest of my life? My father tells me at every Rider home game that my balance is getting noticeably better. I guess all of those mornings working out, walking w/ my walker, recumbent exercise bike, yoga, push ups and crunches are helping, doesn’t mean I like them though. I’d much rather sit on the couch, in my underwear and watch WB cartoons with a big ol’ bowl of popcorn! But NO! That’s what I do after my workout….NEVER! If I could find “Looney Toons” or “Baby Looney Toons”, it would consume ALL of my attention everyday until I had watched it 3 or 4 times, “Muppet Babies”
I like to get my stuff done so I can spend the rest of the day recovering. FYI-This is WAY to early I came out to the kitchen at 5:30am. I had to go to the washroom just before 3:00am, then couldn’t fall asleep. After 2 hours of tossing and turning, I figured I might as well get up! Right now I can’t see the couch, but it’s calling me! I can hear it!
My music question for the day is, can music aid in a life or death situation? I would have to say yes! When I was in a coma for 4-5 weeks, my wonderful wife brought 3 of my favourite albums to the hospital when I wasn’t expected to come out of a coma. She brought Foo Fighters “The Colour and The Shape”, one of the two Big Wreck albums at the time and she can’t remember the 3rd one since it was so long ago. What were you listening to in early 2008? I’m guessing no one has a clue. I wouldn’t!
If you ask me, YES, music can be a determining factor in a life or death situation, and being surrounded by incredible family & friends helps even more! Yep, there is no fount that Kim’s the right gal for this city boy. My mother ran into one of my doctors at the Pasqua Hospital who said “Young couples usually end up separated going threw something like we did. Your daughter-in-law is the best wife I have ever seen”. I hope he’s not married! Thank you everyone! These are the CDs that Kim likely brought to the hospital for me. Well 2/3 anyways.
Did that feel like an award speech to anyone else?
