LTA (Lighter Than Air)

More than one person has asked me to write about my life outside of my illness. No. Or, not really. Thats some other blog. I’ll do highlights though:

  • I drink orange juice out of the container. No, I will not stop. No, it’s not worth discussing.
  • When I’m on the T, I stand in front of the door. Even when there’s a seat open.
  • I can recite the entire WBUR¬†call-sign from memory (and the previous one before they switched it up 3 years ago).
  • I talk to dogs. Hell, I guess I talk to computers.
  • I’ve been in the bed of a dump trunk that was filled with enough pickled herring I could’ve drowned in it.
  • I use words like “shitstorm” and “clusterfuck” probably more often than is socially acceptable.
  • I would accept a baby bear or moose as a pet without a second thought.
  • It amazes me people on Jeopardy take Trebek’s shit.

 

Pretty standard stuff…

    Your friend’s moms ask if you would like the last “lonely sausage”

  1. Hey Austin! Thank you for sharing your story. It sounds like you’ve been through he’ll and back, but you’re still kicking and that’s what counts. My grandmother had leukemia last year, and she passed away last summer. Her treatment was just palliative since doing chemotherapy and stuff would just have made her sick and uncomfortable, so I don’t have much experience with that side of cancer – but I do know what a little shit it is and what it does to your body. And all I’m asking is that you keep fighting. The doctors told you your cancer’s terminal. Maybe they’re right. Mayb they’re not. Miracles have happened to other people; hell, maybe they’ll happen to you. I’m not going to pretend I know what it’s like to figt for your life against a disease that’s consuming it. I’m not going to pretend I’ll ever know the shit you’ve been though. But fight till the end, kay? Just do it. Do it for the cancer patients who’ve died, like my grandmother, or do it for your family or friends, or do it for yourself. It doesn’t matter. But the most honorable death, they always said, was death in battle. If you’re going to die, don’t let it come easy. You’re stronger than you think. Evn in your darkest moments, I PROMISE you that you will find enough strength to keep going. Use that strength, and do your best to beat his cancer, so that whatever happens, they’ll be able to say that you never gave in and you never backed down.

    Thank you for reading my long-winded monologue, and God bless.
