I have seen too many posts which blame.
They blame Netanyahu.
They blame Hamas.
They blame Liberman.
They blame Egypt.
Does it matter who they blame?

No one takes the responsibility for the deaths.
No one takes the responsibility, tries to stop it.

Sadness and sadness.

Zoe is a very sleepy baby
I cleaned her first poop, so I guess (tag) I'm it.
Much love, much bravery by Keren.
Let the healing begin, let the beauty of Zoe be known to all.

K has basically completed the first trimester of our second pregnancy.
We did the nuchal transparency test, and all is well so far. :)
It was amazing to see the foetus so clearly. :)

So, Israeli commandos boarded some boats claiming to be peace-oriented, heading for the Gaza Strip.
10 dead, 50 injured (more or less).
And What was on the boats? Couldn't PAPER be sent through? or CEMENT? Or an agreement reached as to how this could be achieved?
Stupidity, pure stupidity.

i am perfectly healthy
no reason to fear
no reason to be afraid
it's just a test

it won't even make me a member of the fantastic four


still
it will let me know if everything is alright with my innards or not

PeT-CT tomorrow.

I wonder if anyone ever wrote such a ditty...

Anyhoo, I am feeling the blues of the up-and-coming PeT-CT scan. I know everything is alright, and that I have nothing to fear.
Yet, still, if even one cell is bad...

nevermind that

No, I do not have cancer.
But remember I was given this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doxorubicin?
Well, it causes this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Post-chemotherapy_cognitive_impairment
I have chemo brain.
Today I was so fuzzy it wasn't fuzzy.
I almost caused an accident.
I got angry for no reason.
I mean NO reason. I was sitting by myself, and nothing was wrong.
But still, I got mad.
This is very frustrating.
I forget things.
Can't concentrate.
I hope it will pass soon.

Security: Public
Tags:hodgkin's
I brought my results to the hematologist today.
He went over them, and quickly released me, saying "see you in 3 months, hope you stay as healthy as you are now".
What nice guy.
Waiting on line was a frightened young woman (30ish) who was waiting for results.
I thought to myself "that must be what I looked like..."
I tried to cheer her up, and saw her eyes brimming with tears.
I hope she gets better as soon as I did (or sooner).

Also saw one of the lovely nurses and the receptionist who helped me get better.
Was good.
