The Big Climb

Thank you to everyone who donated to Light the Night 2022. We raised almost $23,000!

Next up is the San Francisco Big Climb which takes place on April 29, 2023 at Oracle Park. More details on how to climb with us soon. Need a few more 2022 donations for tax purposes? No time like the present. :) My (still to be customized) fundraising page for the 2023 Big Climb is here.

Right Off Your Head

Blogging Tunes: none

I'm finishing up a mediocre Panda Express lunch at the UCSF cafeteria after a rare mid-day appointment.  I usually get a burrito from Carmelina's, but I didn't want messy fingers as I'm working as I stuff my face.

The combination of the Prednisone and the 0.35 Tac really hasn't done shit for all my upper-body pain, soreness, stiffness, etc.  So Dr. Damon wants me to go back up to 0.4mg on the Tac.  I agreed as long as we can stop the Prednisone.  The side effects were mild, but they were real: hard to sleep; more irritable; etc.

So we'll go up to the 0.4 and see how it goes.  0.4 was the magic number back in December when my energy-level was great and before all this upper-body stuff, so hopefully this'll do the trick.

I'll be on a plane for 6 hours tomorrow, so maybe I'll write some more.  For those who haven't been following, I've been invited to sit on the keynote panel at the NCCN's annual conference on Thursday.  Just in time too... it's gonna rain for the rest of the week in SF, but it's gonna be 80 every day in Hollywood, FL.

A few quick pics of the big double-bday party we had at the Bay Area Discovery Museum (badm) on Saturday:

The kicking continues,
