Do you have a question about stage 4 brain cancer?  Ask if you do!

4 day exercise total; 400 leg lifts, 300 crunches, 300 squats, 200 back flexes, curls, yoga, & stretching.

I fell asleep to “Wide Mouth Mason” the album “Where I Started”

I exercised to “Paramore” the album “After Laughter”

 

What do I do after my exercises?  I keep myself busy.  I exercise from 1 hour or 1 & ½ hours.  Eat my breakfast, shower.  Do whatever needs to be done here, have lunch, check my email & other stuff.  Then hit the couch around 2:00 pm to watch some TV.  I do that, but I always feel like I’m “Chasing Yesterday”.  It’s a Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds album title.

Now that I have dumbbells, I keep them by my feet & randomly pick them up to do more curls with my left/weaker arm which still shakes uncontrollably.  I don’t even use heavy weights.  Only 10 pound weights for curls, I do 100 on my left arm & 80 with my right arm.  There is a visual difference between the 2 arms.

I also work on my tricep muscles with a 5 pound weight.  The exercise with your elbow pointing up & the weight behind your head with one arm.  Then during the day I’ll pick up a weight & do some exercise on my left arm while watching some TV.

Working with the weights seems to be a better workout than the pushups & tricep lifts I used to do.  Different muscles though.  At least my uncontrollable left arm seems to be stronger after 2 days of weights.  The yoga & stretching help quite a bit too.  I’m glad I brought the yoga back into the routine!

Yes we went back to the “Toyota” dealership Thursday after Kim finished work.  She got a 5 year lease on a new Toyota RAV 4.  It should be here in a month.  I felt & still feel sick to my stomach the further we drove away from the dealership.  “YAY let’s make car payments for the rest of our lives & never own a car!”  Might as well move into an apartment.  All I can hear in my head is “We can’t afford that” on repeat.  Happy wife = tightly wound ball of stress husband.  5 year lease & we should buy it at that time.

She deals with the money, while I worry about EVERYTHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I’m still ready to throw up violently.  She says this way is better for us.  I said “OK, if you say so?”

Toyota’s “….got me firmly by the short & curlies…..”

Kim is much more responsible with money than I am.  If she can make it work, & she can, I shouldn’t stress out as much as I do.

Please don’t ask?  I can’t tell you how much the payments are other than, more than our 2014 fully loaded Hyundai Santa Fe.  We need a new vehicle why?  Our Santa Fe is still under 38,000 km.

How will “Lamb of God” have the time to record a new album if they just finished playing on Slayer’s farewell tour & now playing a festival in Copenhagen?  Still so many releases to come, Megadeth, Lamb of God, Anthrax, Highly Suspect, Pearl Jam & 4 albums that I know are recorded from other groups but not released yet.  I hope the anniversary albums don’t count as a new release?  The one album I do have on preorder, & I’ve had it on preorder since March, is a new Sum 41 set for release July 19th.  Their last 2 albums are impressive, very good hard rock albums!

I’ve known this for a while.  Alter Bridge are having a listening party at the end of September for their new album.

I LOVE the fact that more bands are not allowing cell phones into their concerts!  I wonder what a concert in the 1980s was like?  Probably fun & relaxing….wait….that’s the same all of the time for me!

ANDY McKEE

I can’t tell you much about him.  I never bothered to look into his information.  He’s American, plays acoustic guitar by finger picking through the majority if not all of his songs.  I don’t believe there’s any singing involved.  I have one album of his & it’s all instrumental.  He has 4 albums, 2 EPs, a few singles, & a collaboration with 2 or 3 others on a full album, so says iTunes.

Friday night we did nothing.  We were both tired.  I got up around 9:00am to pee & figured it was time to get up on Saturday.  Kim was cleaning so I just tried to stay out of her way.  We’re having a sleep over with our friends’ 3 year old.  Kim will be sleeping with someone else again tonight (Saturday night).  She got here at 3:00 pm & immediately went grocery shopping with “Auntie” Kim.  They got home around 4:00 pm and started making burritos.  It’s 5:45 pm & I’ve already had a stern talking to from the 3 year old………………Hahahahaha!  Hannah got up with “Auntie” Kim around 7:00 am and they made brownies.  It was a weekend of painting, stickers, markers, & dancing to the “Trolls” soundtrack.  It’s close to 11:00 am on Sunday.  I see the couch & Netflix in my near future!

 

Thank you Apple music.  We didn’t have to buy we just streamed it.  I got tired just watching Hannah dance before bed & again this morning.  Good thing I still really like this song.  It’s a really good movie to watch as a family too!  We’ve ordered it from amazon already, should be here early this week.

 

I found a new band.  If you like “Paramore” you might like “Blameshift”?  Very similar to me other than “Blameshift” is slightly heavier.

Sarah Michelle Gellar reflex on the movie “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” on it’s 20th anniversary

http://www.rollingstone.com/tv/news/sarah-michelle-gellar-reflects-on-buffy-20th-anniversary-w471568

 

Who enjoyed the Archie comic books way back in the day?  I sure did, I’d go grocery shopping with my mom & if there was an Archie comic at the till with a new release date & cover, I’d ask if I could have it.  There’s an original Netflix show on now called “Riverdale”, the name of the town where the Archie story takes place.  It has the Archie comic book characters but it looks like it will be a “Dateline” mini-series involving the characters, oddly addictive.  Some of the characters are completely different than they are portrayed in the comic book we watched the first 2 episodes of 6 last night.  Archie is the guy in high school, muscular QB of the football team, & slept with the music teacher in the woods the night/early morning of the shooting & they both heard the shot.  Jughead is not friends with Archie in the beginning.  It’s an interesting show.

 

Not just metal or rock all of the time

 

No I don’t purchase every album I hear, I do purchase a PILE of albums from iTunes though.   Kim has me on a monthly allowance on iTunes though, which is a good thing, or else we’d be on the streets with an iPod full of music.  When my iPod classic bites the bullet, I’m not sold on the replacement of an iPod touch.  128 gigs are enough for now, but I just want an MP3 player my classic 160 gig is more than enough room, I only have 105 of 130 gigs on my iPod.  I don’t want or need the other bells & whistles on my MP3 player.  All of the other stuff is add on so Apple can jack up the price of an iPod.  I just don’t like touch screens, camera or any other nonsense in my pocket.  I hate talking to people through a cell phone that cuts out every 12 seconds.  I’ll never understand the attraction to cell phones either?  If you’re not there, why would I talk to you when I’m out with others?  You had something else going on & couldn’t make or I didn’t invite you since I’m with a different circle of friends.  I’m not trying to be rude, but I don’t want to be connected to the world “24/7”.  I’d like to focus on the activity I’m doing at the moment.

Also I’m never out alone, and think about this.  Even if I was out on my own, a phone wouldn’t help prevent whatever happened, I’d likely use the phone afterwards.  Since I’m never out by myself, why do I need a phone when EVERYBODY else has one?  I have no plans to get a phone anytime soon.  If you’ve got one, great, I hope you enjoy it!  I’m holding out for the iPhone 74, and it won’t have anything on it, I’ll block my number & use it like a home phone, yeah I’ll use it to cut out on people as I TALK to them.  Texting?  I wouldn’t have a 17” monitor if I was going to a 6” cell phone screen.  Personal choice, I choose not to get one, & if I do, you’re going to strongly dislike the way I use it.  It will stay at home, I’ll use it like a home phone, email & Facebook will not be attached to it & if you get my number I will not respond to a text, a phone call only.  I don’t want/need a cell phone.

My wife is mind blowingly INCREDIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  She fought everywhere in whatever hospital to stay with me.  She’d go home to shower & my parents would “watch over…” me.  She’d go home, shower & hug my clothes in my closet at home, just so she could pretend she was hugging me.  She had a cot to sleep on beside me.  Eventually in the WRC she started sleeping in my bed.  I’m 6’1”, apparently that’s HUGE?  This meant my bed was much bigger than most beds.  Plenty of room for 2 of us.  Good thing my brother or cousin weren’t staying in there 6’3” for my brother & 6’5” or more for my cousin, Mark Towers.

Where ever I was, Kim was with me.  Kim was “The Nurse who loved me!”  She REALLY stepped up her game so I could venture out to the lake & other places.  Everybody stepped up, friends & family!  I didn’t really realize I had cancer until sometime in 2009?  I slept 23 hours a day while I was in the Pasqua hospital, then I moved to the Wascana Rehabilitation Center sometime in 2009.  I’m no hero, I just did what needed to be done, & I still am!  You work at your place of employment, right?  My job is to get better ASAP, so I’m doing a job too, and the government pays me through disability & CPP (Canadian Pension Plan).  When I turn 65, all of that stops & I’ll live on my RRSPs.

The only thing that went wrong was that my mortgage insurance lasted 2 years, I needed 4.5 years & we ended up paying for nursing supplies because Kim was doing so much for me, instead of a nurse.  Kim started making paintings to sell as source of income, she’s still doing it, just not as much.

Kim’s hilarious too.  We’re on our 2nd box of Halloween chocolate bars.  I don’t like the “Temptation” of having sweets around.  If I see them I eat them.  The first box she put on the top shelf of our pantry.  Haha!  I can stand up by holding the pantry door frame.  Yes, chocolate is one of my many nemeses’.  We’re on our 2nd box now & she didn’t even bother to try to hide it.  No, I did not put Halloween candy on any shopping list, only $1,000,000!  That didn’t happen?  She avoided telling me we had chocolate in the house.  I found it on the floor of the pantry.  If she’s not hiding it, neither should I?  Last night I just took the box with me after supper, right over to the couch to watch TV.  I just turned to Kim & said “I’m not even going to pretend I’m just having 2 or 3”

This is for anyone & everyone who might find this interesting! Please help me out if you don’t mind? I’ve been sharing this publically on my page, I don’t think it’s helping? Please do what you can to spread the word?

Thursday nothing but stretching & TV. Friday more of the same with a progressive metal show in the evening to kick off the long weekend! The show was really good. I haven’t been to the Exchange in quite a while. There’s somewhat of a metal scene there. We don’t all know everyone’s name but you go in there & recognize around 50% of the people at least! Great show & fun times! Sound was really good also! I can’t imagine doing sound for an opening death metal band, but it sounded very good! 3 bands for $10, good deal! I’m getting old though. The concert ended around midnight, I was tired, WAY past my bedtime!!! It was “Third Ion’s” album release show, really good progressive metal group!!!!!!

Saturday we went to my parents place for supper & to say goodbye to my cousin & uncle back to Winnipeg as of Sunday morning. We stayed there until around 11:00 pm. Staying out past 10:30 pm makes me tired.

Because of staying out so late, I planted myself on the couch to watch The Toronto Blue Jays fall back into 2nd place in their division. The funniest thing this weekend has been that the Blue Jay scored 6 runs in their game Friday night, & the Roughriders scored 3 points Friday night. The baseball team scored more than the football team! Hahahahahaha!

I think Kim is “Superwoman”, she’s more than amazing. Monday thus far has been Murphy’s Law since I went to shower. Kim’s probably sating to herself “That idiot” & she would be right in doing so. Knock on wood, I have yet to fall today!

Stranger Things” on Netflix is REALLY good. It’s a show based in 1983, a group of kids are playing a game & their friend disappears in the first episode & it goes on from there. 8 50 minute episodes & I really hope there’s a 2nd season! Yes I binge watched the last 4 episodes today, Thursday.

Too bad this isn’t the theme song….

I highly recommend “The Ranch” on Netflix starring Ashton Kutcher & Danny Masterson. This show is HILARIOUS!!!!!!!!!! LANGUAGE!!!!!

EXERCISE WEEKLY TOTAL & CANCER

I fell asleep to “Andy McKee” the album “Dream Catcher” after listening to the brand new live album from “Barenaked Ladies”. I preordered it & got it last night “Live at Red Rocks”

Everything from Andy McKee is acoustic & instrumental. This is the only cover song I have of his.

I exercised to “Alice Cooper” his “Greatest Hits” then about half of “Anthrax” the latest album “For All Kings”

Monday is a Holiday! So I’ll post the weekend update on Monday evening.

Yes, this is also on facebook if you prefer.

Exercise total for the week; 6000 crunches, 320 leg lifts, & 160 squats.

The squats are one of the most difficult exercises I do. My legs have very little muscle, if I’m not holding something, I’ll fall. I do my squats while keeping my balance with my sliding up & down my transfer pole. I don’t use any force or grab the pole to help me. It’s just there for balance.

I didn’t expect/want the world to stop when I got sick, & it didn’t which is a great thing, everything “carried on” as it should. Having an experience with cancer is something I would never wish on ANYONE. Not everyone reacts the same to someone having cancer. I get that.
