one year ago today, i was told that i may only have a few hours left to live.  today, i can happily rejoice and say i am grateful that i have been given another year.  i continue to be a pill popper (twice a day) which is supposed to slow the growth of my heart – that is what they have found to be the problem.  my heart hasn’t stopped growing, which eventually means that they’ll cut my open like a fish and slice away.

i wondered how to best celebrate this anniversary – thought about a big greasy breakfast and enjoy a few cigars.  i had a slice of toast and coffee instead.

ironically, i rejoice on this anniversary…the birthday on the other hand is a bad scene.
