Catch-Up Part I

Cancer Sucks.  I know I've said it before and guess what I'll keep saying it 
My last post on March 7th brought you up to February 12th when we learned of The Brain's latest diagnosis of Grade 4 GBM.  Life has been an ugly downward spiral since.  
I started writing this March 20th, today's the 28th so~there will be a Part II.

Lady and The Brain: New Year, New Chemo, Now What?

The Holiday Season at our house wasn't the brightest.  Sharing the updated news on The Brain's Tumor and waiting for information on his new Chemo definitely brought down the merry factor. We entered the New Year with high hopes and just as high-stress levels.

Lady and The Brain: All's Good Until..Merry Christmas

We were settling into a new routine: 5 days of Oral Chemo every month with an MRI every three.
We planned dinner, weekly outings and even our annual trip to Epcot's Food and Wine Festival around this schedule.  It was working ~ until the headaches.

Oscars 2019

  I think I did a pretty good job of getting to see most of this year's nominated films. I only missed 6 of the nominated films.  I have tickets for Beale Street this Thursday;  thankfully Roma and Ballad of Buster Scruggs are on Netflix; I never heard of Cold War, At Eternity's Gate or  the animated movie Marai until awards season so I'm hoping AMC will show them. I've marked my Predictions ⭐  my favorites 👑   My strongest vote is for Glenn Close in The Wife, I know all the Lady Gaga fans will boo however Glenn's performance was incredible.
Strange side note: I copied the layout I used for the 2017 Oscars and Mahershala Ali was in the exact same place.  I really don't understand how he's the supporting actor but that's why I'm not in Hollywood.

Lady and The Brain ~ The Inbetween

Before I jump into this post I wanted to point out that The Brain was not experiencing any symptoms whatsoever from the Tumor.  It was considered an incidental finding ~ incidental isn't that funny.

So what happens between a cancer diagnosis and treatment?  
Much more than you probably think

One year ago today our world was turned upside down.  
 This is the story, as condensed as possible, of our beginnings. 
By The Way ~ remember Pinky and The Brain from The Animanics?  
That's where our name comes from.
