Re: Update - intermission
Starting pills again. Had my 2^3x3^2 birthday during the intermission, which was nice.

I also started a fund raiser for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society

quote:
For my birthday this year, I'm asking for donations to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I've chosen this nonprofit because their mission means a lot to me, and I hope you'll consider contributing as a way to celebrate with me. Every little bit will help me reach my goal. I've included information about The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society below.

The LLS mission: Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. LLS funds lifesaving blood cancer research around the world and provides free information and support services.


You can access on facebook here
there's a donate button on the page.

Thanks

Re: Update - intermission
Happy birthday!

I'm glad to see that things are improving for you.

One important characteristic of a theory is that is has survived repeated attempts to falsify it. Contrary to your understanding, all available evidence confirms it. --Subbie

If evolution is shown to be false, it will be at the hands of things that are true, not made up. --percy

The reason that we have the scientific method is because common sense isn't reliable. -- Taq

Done. Hope things work out so this can be done a few more dozen times.

Ninja proteins! They like you.

Eschew obfuscation. Habituate elucidation.

Re: Update - intermission
My honor to donate.

Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

If your viewpoint has merits and facts to back it up why would you have to lie?

My current treatment involves two therapies, one a pill I take at home the other an infusion done at hospital.

The pill I take one a day for 21 days, then 7 days off (the intermission), then repeat. It hammers me, and by day 21 I have almost no energy to do much more than read small bits.

Time sure flies! Here it is the end of March, nearly April. What phase of the 21 day/7 day cycle are you in? If you dont answer or if your answer is brief, I will have an idea, but why not rate your strength on a scale of 1 (weak) to 10 (strong) so we know. The weaker you are, the more we will pick up the slack. You are a member of TEAM EvC and we are in a giant game of tug of war. If you tell us how you feel, we will know how hard we must pull.

We know that we must win, for this is no mere game. Love ya, RAZD,


Chance as a real force is a myth. It has no basis in reality and no place in scientific inquiry. For science and philosophy to continue to advance in knowledge, chance must be demythologized once and for all. ~RC Sproul

Subjectivism may very well undermine Christianity.
In the same way that "allowing people to choose what they want to be when they grow up" undermines communism.

The 21 days of pills concludes tonight.

... but why not rate your strength on a scale of 1 (weak) to 10 (strong) so we know. ...

2. I lost 50 lbs in the last year, most of it muscle mass due to lying in bed so much. Home physical therapy has ended. I graduated to get outside therapy, and have chosen the local Y. First time on stationary bike I managed to ride 1 virtual mile (vm), and have increased that to 4 vms. I try to go 3 times a week. I want to be in shape to ride my cycle buddies annual birthday ride -- 70 miles -- in August.

I'll keep you posted.

Enjoy
