Soul food!

Dang it, I already wrote most of this post but somehow I lost it. Oh well, I'll try again.

I'm feelin good guys! Really, so much better than I expected to feel at the end of the day today. Still in pain but it's manageable.

Soul food: The matzo balls at the 2nd avenue deli are delicious!!! Why is the 2nd ave deli on 3rd ave? Ah the mysteries of life. It took me about an hour to eat a single matzo ball between bouts of intense nausea. But now it's in my belly for good. It seems like it's literally in there for good, considering how crazy constipated this morphine is making me. TMI? Sorry.

Soul food part two: ice!! The ice here is those little crunchy pellets that I have loved ever since I was a kid. It's the little things in life that are making me happy right now.

Soul food for entertainment purposes: my friend just brought me the first season of flight of the conchords. I've never seen it (I KNOW!) and I'm so excited! Now I wish I hadn't had that fight with my laptop this week and destroyed it forever (don't worry, it's insured and I'll replace it). I also have a loaner coming in for movie watching.

Soul food for, well, the soul: I can feel my body slowing down and am looking forward to getting some sleep. But as I'm winding down, I am looking out through the clearing cloud cover to the queensboro bridge and the lights shimmering in the haze and a barge is slowly rolling down the black water of the east river.

It's a good place to think. And you know what I just thought about? If all has gone well, I do not have cancer any more. That feels good.

Good night!
