in case you haven't seen me in a while

since this is the first major holiday that i will be spending with family since 2002, prepare yourself for some changes if you're one of those fringe relatives that i don't see that often.

1. the 45 pounds that i've gained since last february has given me a rather round and jolly look. yes, i'm aware that rapid weight gain is unhealthy--but hey, look at hubby, he's perfectly fine except for a random (to quote our doc) "genetic accident" that gave him leukemia. that treadmill's not looking so hot now that you know that your genes can randomly take you out--is it!?

what can i say, i eat when i'm stressed. suffice it to say, having the round and jolly look does not necessarily mean that one is actually round and jolly.

2. yes, hubby's doing better (other than the crippling fear that we both have about leaving baltimore and our medical team, rejection of the marrow, relapse, germs, graft-versus-host-disease, and shingles).

3. i drive fast and swear a lot more now than i used to. being up close and personal with my husband's mortality has given me somewhat of a nihilistic streak. i always DID want to be edgier.

I hope you have fun and remember, as long as you aren't going to the deeper Amazon, you are always within phone call of your medical team...

Sounds like you guys need a rest,

Edgier is good.
