I know my posting has been somewhat erratic lately. I don't mean to whine, but I've been kind of preoccupied. Since the beginning of last year, I've lost both my parents, my father-in-law and my prostate.
Unfortunately, the prostate did not go
quietly. It seems to have left a little something behind … some prostate-less
terror cells running around somewhere.
So the next step is carpet bombing the area with radiation. I'm not sure
exactly how this works, but it basically involves a radiation beam
aimed at my most intimate portions. I keep picturing that scene from
Goldfinger where James Bond is strapped to a gold table while Mr. Goldfinger plans to unseam him from the nave to the chops and beyond!
Along with the radiation goes hormone therapy or, quite literally, temporary emasculation. Since prostate cancer thrives on guy hormones,
suppressing those hormones is the best way to slow it down. Warning:
Side effects may include hot flashes, softening of muscle definition and
frequent bouts of uncontrollable shoe shopping.
Does this blog post make me look fat?
