steven on newsLiving in Oregon is the coolest ever. Today, we headed to the Ski Bunny sled hill near Mt. Hood with two other families. A KOIN 6 news team was there, capturing all the extreme-sports level sled action. Check out Steven getting interviewed. It was great getting actual fresh air and playing in the snow. The best part: snow has nothing to do with cancer. With all that gear on, I didn’t get a single weird look. Afterward we went for a nutritious lunch at Dairy Queen, where I spotted a guy with a full-on wig. That’s what I notice now – wigs. For men, is it called a toupee? I don’t think he had cancer. He was rocking the Don Ho look, and it was working for him.

Now I’m about three levels lower of exhausted, and I didn’t even sled. Round 2 has brought on massive ear ringing, bloody noses and extreme tiredness. I feel heavy, but hollow. Hungry, but full. I have been making myself take the dog for walks to get moving. The eating thing is getting tougher because everything feels like it’s stuck in your throat. Chemo is some weird, weird shit. But I have to embrace it because it will save my life.


1- My friends Loy and Sharon gave me a good luck necklace that I definitely need.

2- Thank you Raggetts and Drydens for going with us today and giving the entire family a day sans thinking, living and breathing cancer.

3- Brian, Steven and Livvie looked much happier today. That’s always a huge positive.
