Read All About It

I have a long list of blog topics I’ve been meaning to get to. But today, I give you this:

The success of the auction is also bringing to light the fact that some people in my province don’t have drug coverage like those in the rest of the country. And when something like cancer steps in, lack of money can turn into a life or death issue. As a former reporter, it’s weird being on the other side of things, but I figure if I keep talking maybe someone will listen… right??

Click here to read the story. I’m also Skyping with Janetha today for a television interview. If you’re in New Brunswick, tune into CBC’s suppertime newscast to check it out. I’m pretty sure it can be streamed from here as well.

Needless to say, my days have turned out to be quite filled! It’s nice to feel like I’m doing something productive again. However, with the sweet sometimes comes the sour. Unfortunately I’ve been sidelined with pain over the past day thanks to my white blood cell shot. It can be known to cause pain in your bones, and I’ve been hobbling around due to some nastiness in my pelvis and legs. I’m not allowed to take painkillers yet because they can mask other more serious symptoms. So for now I’m just stuck to moaning and groaning and praying it goes away with my last needle tomorrow.

Clearly, I need some waffles.
