Wife texted me this morning at 9am to tell me they were taking her for her stent replacement. I'm anxiously waiting to hear from her that she's out and awake and really hoping they'll let me take her home this afternoon. Even if they don't, at least I'll get to see her this afternoon. I was sort of afraid they'd do the procedure late today and I wouldn't get to see her at all.

Just got a call from the doctor. My wife's procedure is completed and she is just waking up in recovery. They will have her back in her room in about 2 hours and he says that he will make the recommendation that she be released this afternoon. If no other doctor objects, I'll have her home by dinner tonight.

Great to hear Whiskey! So glad she gets to go home. Hopefully no infectious flare ups anymore.

Got her cultures results while she was in the procedure. No growth in 5 days. I can't think of any reason why any doctor would object to her going home today, but I'm still worried they may want to keep her overnight. I guess we'll see. Either way, I'm sitting in her room right now trying to quietly get some work done while she sleeps it off, so I'm happy to be with her.

Tanya is home. Lots of Dr appointments coming up, starting tomorrow, plus radiation. That's for tomorrow though. For tonight, snuggles on the couch and catch up on TV together.

We're moving there. She can now drink something with a bit of ice in it. Hopefully by next weekend.

Banana splits are a go! Tanya just ate a bowl of Chunky Monkey ice cream. The Ben and Jerry's stuff, not ice cream Dennis made.

She also cooked dinner tonight for the first time in about a month. It was just frozen foods, but still.

It's so good to see her better.

Planning to take her to a cabin in the mountains next weekend. Can't wait for some time alone with her. We'll have to take her IV antibiotics with us on the trip, but just getting away for a weekend will be nice.

What’s it like to go through cancer treatment? It’s something like this: one day, you’re minding your own business, you open the fridge to get some breakfast, and OH MY GOD THERE’S A MOUNTAIN LION IN YOUR FRIDGE.

Wait, what? How? Why is there a mountain lion in your fridge? NO TIME TO EXPLAIN. RUN! THE MOUNTAIN LION WILL KILL YOU! UNLESS YOU FIND SOMETHING EVEN MORE FEROCIOUS TO KILL IT FIRST!

So you take off running, and the mountain lion is right behind you. You know the only thing that can kill a mountain lion is a bear, and the only bear is on top of the mountain, so you better find that bear. You start running up the mountain in hopes of finding the bear. Your friends desperately want to help, but they are powerless against mountain lions, as mountain lions are godless killing machines. But they really want to help, so they’re cheering you on and bringing you paper cups of water and orange slices as you run up the mountain and yelling at the mountain lion - “GET LOST, MOUNTAIN LION, NO ONE LIKES YOU” - and you really appreciate the support, but the mountain lion is still coming.

Also, for some reason, there’s someone in the crowd who’s yelling “that’s not really a mountain lion, it’s a puma” and another person yelling “I read that mountain lions are allergic to kale, have you tried rubbing kale on it?”

As you’re running up the mountain, you see other people fleeing their own mountain lions. Some of the mountain lions seem comparatively wimpy - they’re half grown and only have three legs or whatever, and you think to yourself - why couldn’t I have gotten one of those mountain lions? But then you look over at the people who are fleeing mountain lions the size of a monster truck with huge prehistoric saber fangs, and you feel like an asshole for even thinking that - and besides, who in their right mind would want to fight a mountain lion, even a three-legged one?

Finally, the person closest to you, whose job it is to take care of you - maybe a parent or sibling or best friend or, in my case, my husband - comes barging out of the woods and jumps on the mountain lion, whaling on it and screaming “GODDAMMIT MOUNTAIN LION, STOP TRYING TO EAT MY WIFE,” and the mountain lion punches your husband right in the face. Now your husband (or whatever) is rolling around on the ground clutching his nose, and he’s bought you some time, but you still need to get to the top of the mountain.

Eventually you reach the top, finally, and the bear is there. Waiting. For both of you. You rush right up to the bear, and the bear rushes the mountain lion, but the bear has to go through you to get to the mountain lion, and in doing so, the bear TOTALLY KICKS YOUR ASS, but not before it also punches your husband in the face. And your husband is now staggering around with a black eye and bloody nose, and saying “can I get some help, I’ve been punched in the face by two apex predators and I think my nose is broken,” and all you can say is “I’M KIND OF BUSY IN CASE YOU HADN’T NOTICED I’M FIGHTING A MOUNTAIN LION.”

Then, IF YOU ARE LUCKY, the bear leaps on the mountain lion and they are locked in epic battle until finally the two of them roll off a cliff edge together, and the mountain lion is dead.

Maybe.

You’re not sure - it fell off the cliff, but mountain lions are crafty. It could come back at any moment.

And all your friends come running up to you and say “that was amazing! You’re so brave, we’re so proud of you! You didn’t die! That must be a huge relief!”

Meanwhile, you blew out both your knees, you’re having an asthma attack, you twisted your ankle, and also you have been mauled by a bear. And everyone says “boy, you must be excited to walk down the mountain!” And all you can think as you stagger to your feet is “Fuck this mountain, I never wanted to climb it in the first place.”
