Diagnosis-rare form of non Hodgkin's lymphoma

Chemo regime starts Tuesday-3 days in a row, 3 weeks off, 3 days chemo for six cycles. Called "CHOPS" chemo protocol. Terrified, horrified, shocked, sad, angry- entire specturm of emotions as one would expect. Keep hoping I will wake up and have it be just a bad dream...
Anyone out there already through this or something similar? Any helpful chemo tips to share? Welcome any and all suggestions and support. Have a feeling I'm in for a long, brutal few months...

Thanks...

Great start to Bill Maher's show

Glen Greenwald (from Rio) speaking on NSA and first panel topic is Bridgegate. Excellent panel (Jennifer Grandholm, Steve Schmidt, James Carvelle). So happy he's back!

Nan Rich needs to tone down the anti-Crist rhetoric

I get it that she is a lifelong "true Democrat", unlike Crist who recently became one. I get it that he flip-flopped (and "evolved") on many issues. However, is very unlikely that she can beat Scott and Crist is clearly a stronger candidate. At some point, her negative campaigning is going to put him at risk, causing some on the fence Dems and Independents to tune out and stay home when we need them to be engaged and invigorated about getting Scott out. I feel compassion for her- I really do and believe that she'd be a good Governor but it does not appear to be in the cards for her so hopefully she will gracefully, pull back on the Crist attacks for the good of the state or we risk another 4 year Scott nightmare.

Anthony Weiner is great on Bill Maher tonight

Reminds me of what a powerful, progressive voice he was when he was in Congress. Such a shame he made such a mess of things. He really is a bright, articulate guy. Hopefully he will one day wind up back in politics...

Watching Barbara Buono on Rachel

She really is terrific and would be a welcome relief from Christie. Her new ad which is just hitting NJ now, is excellent. What will it take for get people in NJ to wake up and see Christie for who he really is? I still cannot understand why his numbers are so high. They just ejected Corey Booker after all-might this mean reason to have a bit if hope or am I being too naive?

Thank you, Mr. President. Again.

Thank you for your excellent speech today which hit all of the right points. Thank you for standing your ground and not giving in to the economic terrorists who are still, even after the damage they inflicted these past 2 weeks, determined to undermine your presidency and our country and care only about their own egos. Thank you for continuing, in spite of dealing with a completely incompetent GOP lead Congress, to focus on the values that Democrats believe in and reminding the country that "the government" is not something to be feared but something that supports each and every one of us. There have been instances when I've been frustrated with you and with some of your decisions (like giving in on single payer although I understand there were reasons for doing so), but today I am reminded again, of how happy and proud I am to have you as my President and how fortunate this country is to have you as our leader.

Anyone watching CNN now?

Christians Amanpour just had a very powerful interview Bahshar Ja Afari, Syrian Ambassador to the UN- basically told him the world knows they are lying and they (Syrian regime) has brought this on themselves. She was very direct and did not mince words.

Good morning NE DU friends

How is everyone doing? Check in when you can- we are thinking about you! Hope you are all safe and staying warm- which I fear with so many without power, will be a challenge today. Post photos too if possible! Can't wait to hear your stories- as an ex Bostonian and New Yorker, I feel your pain.

Now come the tears. WE DID IT!

It's real. Yes We Did. Amen.
