What Do You Want?

Ok guys, try to be democratic here. I am going to ask the readers of "Fighting in Texas" what you want out of my blog. Would you rather:

  • Clinical descriptions of treaments, how they are going, my reactions, and changes to the treatments.
  • Funny missives coming from a man (that's right) with cancer, light on the tech descriptions.
  • Deep ponderings about the meaning of life, and how they fit into my families situation.
  • Pictures of me and my family.

you guys let me know either through email or comment on the blog. If you don't have my email, I am sure you can get it :)

BTW Jake and Jen are going to the Wiggles today!

How about all 4? For most people I've talked to, it's just nice to hear how you are feeling, whether it is physically, mentally, or politically (you dirty hippie).

Less medical jargon. Im not smart enough to understand it. More pictures. Dumbed down prognosis'. Also the mention you miss you brother occasionally wouldnt bother me.

All four would be great - although don't stress yourself out if it's too difficult to do all four. But if you wanted, you could do them in categories ...

Jason, although I enjoy seeing the pictures, I'm more interested in the first three. I'm most interested in knowing what you are experiencing, how you're dealing with it, and the thoughts floating around in your head about it all.

And for the record ... I, too, think you should occasionally mention how much you miss your brother.

Kate said...

I want to hear all sides.

But you should just write what you want depending on your mood.

I do love seeing pictures though.

Don't change a thing. Keep being honest. Keep being real. Don't forget this is not about us...its about you....

Hey Jason,
I haven't read your blog for ages but spoke to Jenn recently and she told me that the fluid build up was reducing and that this was a good sign. You have shown amazing strength and courage these past few months. What also has been great is that you are sharing so much of what is happening to you (emotions, physical wellbeing, the family coping). I think you should just write what helps you and what you want to say on the day you chose to update your blog. Don't fret that you have an audience to impress, you're life needs to be zero stress right now...so write what makes you happy, what makes you feel upbeat and what keeps you positive.
Love to you all.

well, an online poll...
with an error margin of +/- 100%...

I like it all. and I appreciate the pictures and tech stuff, perhaps due to experience 2nd hand, but it helps me understand whats goin on w/ ye bo-deh...

plus the fact yer not really funny in the first place. fire off missives all you want, rarely if ever wil they be funny.
so, just for that, I say keep fighting, keep trying. we all want to be funny...

(been crazy busy or I woulda blog checked earlier. i still pay nauseating attention to you and yer humorless blogguette)

Hey, J.P.! I think that you should put whatever you want on the blog - since it is YOURS. I do enjoy reading whatever you put on there.

For me, it is an easy way to get an update on how you are feeling, no matter what time of day it might be [that way I don't have to worry about waking up you, or the family].

I am proud of your strength, and I will continue to pray for you even after this thing has been whipped! Keep on fighting, and know that my thoughts are with you often.

Love, your sister-in-law in law, Kirsten

To reiterate what others have said, I say put what YOU want to put on here. This is your story in your words with the information that you want to share with us. I, like the others, enjoy reading whatever you put on here and whatever it is - medical jargon, deep insights, or funny quips - is a reflection of what/how you're feeling/thinking. I think you should keep it exactly how YOU want it to be. I check often to see how you're doing and what you've been doing so far seems to work...plus, like your brother said, this isn't about us, it's about you.

Keep up the fight.
