This calls for some leather pants and a vest

With the whole brouhaha over my needing to start treatment again, I'd convinced myself that this month's test results would be sky-high and horrible. Dr. GPO gave me the usual pep-talk about how slow-moving my disease is, saying, "This is not 'Get-Out-of-Dodge' disease." As much as that cracked me up, I didn't believe him, and fully believed I'd be getting the heck out of Dodge pretty soon. Whatever that means.

Since this is a mostly family-friendly blog, I wondered if I'd be able to use the photo of Jon Bon Jovi wearing nothing except what appears to be a tiny sailor hat, since my M-spike would surely be high enough to warrant such a photo. This photo exists; just Google it.

P.S. The hat (or whatever it is) is not on his head.

Anyway. I was pleasantly surprised this morning to find out that my M-spike is 3.5, which is completely stable from last month. In fact, it is down .1, which really doesn't mean a whole lot, since the tests were at different labs, blah blah, but it makes me feel better. So, in celebration of the .1 decline, I found a nice Bon Jovi photo that appears to be from the late '80s or early '90s and features a lovely vest-sunglasses-leather-pants combo:

I'm wondering if he's trying to look cowboy-esque, and I'm thinking that real cowboys would make him get out of Dodge.

My first round of Revlimid arrives on Monday, and if it does its job, JBJ will be wearing a tasteful turtleneck sweater any day now.

I don't think JBJ would be able to move out of Dodge very quickly in those paints.

I googled it and you should be ashamed of yourself for making me wade through tons of pictures including one where JBJ was wrapped in nothing but a tablecloth before I found it.

Given the circumstances I'm looking forward to the turtle neck and then maybe a heavy overcoat, hat, scarf and mittens!

I meant pants - I was obviously thinking they looked painted on! :D

Karen ,
I certainly do know how we can imagine that the numbers have gone way out of Dodge city KS . I was ignoring my Numbers all month and my Cancer (stage4)and having a great summer. with My upcoming Oncology meeting I began to speculate how high they were and what treatments were in store. . First thing Monday I was in the Cancer Center only to find out they had dropped 2 tenths.
I love reading Your blog and have been away from a computer for 3 months way north and west of Dodge.
ps: please pardon any errors in grammer LOL
