 Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. My goodness has it really been over a month since I last posted? Yes, it has! For most of you, My Dear Readers, this comes as no surprise. My battle with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma has taken the last little bit of strength from my body. Leaving me quite bereft of the physical abilities needed to write and publish. Normally, I would apologize for this extended hiatus, today… I am not. My adventure with chemotherapy has come to an end.

.

Unfortunately the chemotherapy did not have the desired results. From what I am told, these drugs did not “knock back…” my disease as much as my oncologist has anticipated. Therefore, we have started a round of radiation therapy. This will last another couple of weeks, and then I will be finished with all the toxic… exposures. With any luck, once I am finished with this current treatment I will be relatively free of this cancer.

.

My Dearest Readers, I have many videos from the past several months. Videos of me heading to treatment, videos of me during treatment, and a few of Prince Alexander playing and being my little boy rat. It is my desire and intent that, once I am recovered from these treatments, I will be sharing all of these videos with all of you. My Dear Readers, I genuinely long to return to a regular and full writing and publishing schedule.

.

Do you all remember what that was like? Five to seven articles every single week. A weekly edition of ‘The Mars Report’ with all the newest information and images from Curiosity and the Opportunity rovers. Weekly editions of ‘News From Around the World’ with all the news that does not appear on the major media outlets web sites. Weekly editions of ‘The Horror in Smithville’ with the latest antics of Timmy and Archer if their fight against ‘The Tall Man’ and the upcoming adventure @ the Harvest Carnival. Weekly editions of ‘A Week in Review’ and the antics of Prince Alexander in ‘Sunday Funnies’!

.

I have not forgotten all the wonderful articles and all the wonderful experiences that we shared here at The Other Shoe. Nor have I forgotten how wonderful it is to write and entertain all of you, My Dearest Readers, from all over this great planet Earth. I really had no idea just how bad these chemotherapy treatments would slam my health. I really had no idea just how much these treatments would negatively effect my neruopathy in my left hand. I really ad no idea just now bad things would be, or I just might have opted out of getting these treatments.

.

All I can hope is that you, My Dearest Readers, will come back once I start writing and publishing, again. For I have dearly missed all of you… deeply. I would like to promise that this weekend I will return to my regular writing and publishing schedule. However, I have never lied to you, My Dearest Readers, before and I am not about to start now. Terrible as it may be? Just writing these two pages has taken a great deal of energy and focus. Looking back? I really am amazed at the amount of content I generated all by myself. Over just under five years I wrote, edited, and published nearly SIX HUNDERED articles for your reading pleasure.

.

When I consider all the effort that goes into just one edition of ‘The Mars Report’! Downloading images for the article, writing the article and embedding the images, uploading the images on to both blog servers, uploading the text, and then integrating the images (and adding descriptions) for as many as ten images. Honestly, it would take me up to four to six hours just to get from start to finish for just one edition of ‘The Mars Report’. It was a labor of love, My Dearest Readers. A love of all things extraterrestrial, and a love of all of you My Dearest Readers.

.

Well, that brings us to the end of this edition of Notes From Behind the Keyboard’. I do hope that all of you, My Dearest Readers, keep checking back and drop by often. With all luck and a bit of extra strength, you can look forward to me adopting a partial publication schedule by the end of February, or the first of March. I know that, sometime in March, my oncologist will start (again) the process of ‘Staging my Cancer’. That will mean PET scans, blood tests, and most likely another bone marrow test.

.

As always I will keep all of you, My Dearest Readers, fully informed on the results of these tests. Fear not, even if I loose this battle with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma? I will continue to write and publish so long as I have life. It is my heartfelt desire to complete ‘The Horror in Smithville’. I already have the final chapters in my head… and the bloody and violent conclusion… it just is not on paper or saved on a hard drive. It is my deeply felt desire to start, and finish, ‘The Adventures of Princess Nadia’, too. At least the first book of the series. If I have my way, I will manage to write (and get published) all FIVE books that will make up her story.

.

In closing, I would like to take a moment to say “Thank you!” to; Ian Cottier, Jason Kleppinger, and James Coate for their kind support during the holidays past. Without their kindness and support I would not have had the genuine thrill of a Christmas Dinner or ANY presents under the tree. Times are tough all over, and I fully understand. I am just thrilled to have friends, and My Dearest Readers, that care enough… and trust me enough to make donations to help me find some small happiness. I am hopeful that when I get my novel works finished… that I find a receptive publisher. That I can get my works published… and never have to ask for the help or assistance of friends, readers, or family… ever again. I just hope that I make it that far. 🙂

.

Adieu!

.

Thank you!

Danny Does Chemo – Day One

 

Danny Does Chemo - Day One #1

Danny Does Chemo – Day One #1

.  
    Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. Welcome to ‘Day One’ of the main part of this article series, and my current round of chemo. I am writing this article while I receive my chemotherapy treatment. I do so for two reasons; first because I am stuck here for seven to eight hours, and I kind of doubt I will feel up to writing once I get home… tonight about 7:30PM. Make the best use of this time while I can. 
.
[Youtube=http://youtu.be/9s5uR4w9oO0]
.
The image, at the top of the page, is of me prior to chemo treatment. I hope to have three to four videos and several stills for the release of this article. Along with the wonderful images and videos, I plan to give you a blow-by-blow of my ‘Day One’ chemotherapy. It is now 1:15PM on Wednesday November 5th, 2014. You will notice, in the videos, I keep saying it is “November 4th”… it is not, it IS November 5th. I just got up at 5AM so I am a little loopy. 
.
So, yes, my day starts with a 5AM wake-up. Allen helps me out of the bed and I grab, a half-awake, Alexander from his cage. Allen is running my bath, while I set out the clothes I will wear for the day. My red ‘Tommy Hilfiger’ thermal-top and my ‘Red Mickey’ pajama bottoms. I may have to get chemotherapy, but nothing says I cannot be comfortable while it happens. Alexander is climbing on my shoulders, talking in my ear. 
.
He tells me that these 5AM 2 wake-up calls best be rare and infrequent. He no more enjoys being awaken at 5AM than I. I assure Alex this will only happen once every three weeks… and on the 11th when I go see Dr. Gorlick. He is still upset, but satisfied with my answer. He licks my ear, says a few words in ‘rat’, and settles in for a ride on my shoulders. I finish setting out my clothes, and see that Allen is finished preparing my bath. 
.
.
By 6AM I am bathed, shaved and dressed ready for a light breakfast then my ride to the infusion center. I am scheduled for pick-up at 7:30AM for arrival in time for my 9 AM check-in time slot. My pickup time, for my ride home, is 6:30PM to arrive home by 8PM. Oy it is going to be a very long day My Dear Readers. Finished with preparations, I sit in my power chair waiting for the transit bus to arrive. I pass the time reviewing the depressing, but not unexpected, results. 
.
‘Off-year’ elections generally favor the party not in the White house, so this comes as no great shock. Democratic candidates have won a few heatedly contested seats, and a few governor’s races. Yet, Republicans take the (non-fillibuster proof) majority in the Senate. Senator Mitch McConnell will soon know the pain Sen. Harry Reid has endured these past six years. During the second commercial break, in the election news, I turn off the television. Now it is time to help Allen prepare our cooler of fluids and snack foods. (Little i did know that 5 hours into treatment everything would taste terrible)
.
The transit bus arrives and Allen helps me get settled in. It is now 8:10AM and I will arrive shortly before 9AM. It is an uneventful ride. Several stops, along the way, people getting in and off at their destinations. Finally, about 8:55AM, we arrive at my stop. Allen assists me disembarking from the bus. 
.
Danny Does Chemo - Porta-Cath Ready For Chemoterapy Drugs

Danny Does Chemo – Porta-Cath Ready For Chemoterapy Drugs

.
First, I want to make mention and sing accolade of the staff and nurses here at the ‘Total Care Infusion Center’ of the Los Alamitos Medical Center. Ruby, Toncy (my incredible nurses and support staff) and Mary. These women showed me great kindness and wonderful support. My thanks and kudos to Dr. Curti and the entire staff at his office and here at the Total Care Infusion Center. If I must have chemotherapy, I cannot imagine a better place or a more wonderfully supportive staff. It is now 2:30PM. I am taking a short break from writing. 
.

Shortly after I took the (indicated) break… well, things got a little sketchy for Dan. Yes, I am writing this Thursday morning while preparing to leave for my injection of Neulasta at my Oncologist’s office. The fun just never seems to stop, here in the land of Danny’s Chemo Adventure! So, what changed? I started having increasingly worse lower back pain, everything I drank or ate tasted like aluminum metal, and I had difficulty getting out of the recliner and up to go to the bathroom. Weakness, dizziness and headaches soon accompanied the cacophony of symptoms that now plagued yours truly.

.

Danny Does Chemo – Day One – Blood Red Chemo Drug

.

I relayed the symptoms to the very supportive nursing staff, but did my best to marshal on without complaint, just like a good ‘Little Texas Boy’. In the last still images, and the last video, of this article you can see the Ariamycin/Doxrubacin medication going into my body. Yes, it is a blood red medication… and it is one of the most toxic chemicals in mankind’s modern day chemotherapy arsenal. My oncologist is bringing out the ‘Big Guns’ to fight this bodily invader. Kudos Dr. Curti!

.

.

Much to my glee, the chemotherapy treatments end precisely as the OCTA transit bus arrives to take me home. I leave the Total Care Infusion Center @ 6PM, to arrive (finally) at home at 7:45PM. Ready to hurl chunks, head throbbing, back aching, and stomach churning I come home to great an anxiously awaiting Alexander R. Hanning Rat. He is quite happy to see Daddy Danny and Daddy Allen.

.

He immediately pries open my mouth, to discern where Daddy has been and what have my fellow humans done to me over the past ten hours. I pull him away from my mouth, only allowing him to smell my breath. He immediately coughs and spits… yes, right into Daddy’s mouth. Well, it’s my son’s spit.. so I laugh and explain to him where I have been and what he smelled. He accompanies me to the bathroom where Allen is running my bath.

.

Danny Does Chemo - Day One Another Blood Red Chemo Shot!

Danny Does Chemo – Day One Another Blood Red Chemo Shot!

.

Allen helps me get ready to bathe and change out my Fentanyl pain patch. It is really late for the patch change, and I am feeling the waning of its effect. While I am soaking away, some, of my back pain and much of the smell of that day’s chemical infusions, Allen is preparing a frozen pizza in the kitchen. It is nearly 9PM when I, finally, sit down in my bed to eat and rest,

.

I manage to eat one piece of pizza before falling asleep while having dinner and watching television. I awake at 1AM to extreme nausea, where, I deposit the recently eaten pizza into… well that is TMI. I return to bed, to discover that Alexander was sleeping with me all this time. I return my sleepy little rat buddy to his warm and comfy cage. Then I collapse into the waiting bed. I awake several more times, over the night and into the wee hours of the morning. Seems my stomach is competing with my headache to see just which one will/ can give me the most grief. When the wrenching of my neck, puking, adds to my headache with growing shooting pains in my neck and arm… well, the headache and neck pain beat out the nausea soundly.

.

Thus, My Dear Readers, was the entirety of ‘Danny Does Chemo – Day One’. I hope that you have enjoyed reading nearly as much as I have enjoyed sharing and telling. I am not too sure just how much I am going to have written, over the weekend. I want to relax and recover. I know that all of you, My Dear Readers, will understand.

.

Thank you for all your kindness and support during this difficult and trying time of my… newest battle with misfortune. I will write again, soon. Take care!

.

.The single MO$T disturbing part or yesterday? Well, what I WASN’T told. One the paperwork, when I get admitted to Total Care  Los Alamitos I ALWAYS get a ‘Share of Costs’ page FILLED OUT! Yesterday, I was given a BLANK PAGE to sign, agreeing I would “Pay all “thereNon-Covered” charges. Meaning ANYTHING Medicare decides NOT to cover I MUST PAY to continue getting treatment. This has NEVER happened before… did ‘The Other Shoe’ just drop (again) in my life? I can barely pay rent, food and bills… THIS was the WHOLE reason behind the ‘Cancer Treatment Fund’ campaign. Not a great time for financial fears… on top of cancer concerns… and the holidays right around the corner… 

.

Adieu!

.

Thank YOU!

Danny Does Chemo – Prelude

Danny Does Chemo Leaving for Oncologist

Danny Does Chemo Leaving for Oncologist

.

Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. The picture, above, is my most recent picture. Taken this Wednesday as I prepared to head to my oncologist. This article is a diary of that journey, and the beginning of another journey that will last for the next eighteen weeks. But, let’s not get ahead of ourselves, My Dear Readers. Let’s take this one-step at a time, one day at a time, and one event at a time. First, let’s take the oncologist appointment that changed my life.

.

The day, Wednesday, started out like any other day I have an appointment. I wake-up early to get bathed, dressed and ready for a long day of; crowded transit rides, sitting and waiting for drivers, and rushing from appointments that ran long to catch my ride home. Allen gets up and helps me out of bed and into the bathtub. I sit there, in the warm water, thinking of how my life will change in just the next few hours. Below is my video before I leave for my oncologist appointment.

.

.

You see, My Dear Readers, I have already talked with my Oncologist on the phone. Yes, I have a doctor that actually calls his patients with any and all ‘news’. It was late the previous Friday evening when Dr. Curti called me. It was imperative that we start chemotherapy just as soon as possible. This decision was based on information from my last scan, and discussions that he engaged in with oncologists at the City of Hope’.

.

So, My Dear Readers, I already know just what I am about to face, and hear, on this day. That I must start chemotherapy as soon as possible. Already, I understand that this means I will be dealing with the battle that is chemotherapy will trying to beat a deepening depression due to the upcoming ‘holidays’. You see, My Dear Readers, it (my depression) always takes a nose-dive around the ‘holidays’.

.

Arival at the Oncologist's Office

.

As with any ‘American Male’ I desperately want to give a nice Christmas to the person most important in my life. For the past several years I have taken to accepting no ‘gifts’ in lieu of making sure that Allen has the clothes, and personal items he needs to work comfortably. This will be true, this year, too. It is just that… well, I would give anything to actually have a ‘Nice Christmas’ and dealing with chemotherapy… too. Well, lets to dwell on just how dark it will be in the coming months. Let me focus on this visit.

.

My Dear Readers, I had Allen take a video of me on the lift getting on to the OCTA transit bus. This is the first time that I have ever allowed this to happen. I really do not enjoy having my picture taken… in these situations. For me, it is kind of like having my picture taken while I am in the bath. Anyway, below is a short video of me being raised on a lift into the transit bus. This was the beginning of a very eventful day… and a journey that will span the next 18 weeks.

.

.

That, My Dear Readers, is me in my power chair getting on to an OCYA transit buss to ride to my oncologist appointment. That begins a day that will, by its end, change my life it ways that I never imagined. Then again, I guess at this point in my life… one would think that I would be used to my life ‘changing in ways I never imagined”. It just hasn’t happened… yet.

.

So, once my power chair is fastened into place and I am belted to the floor. I sit in my chair and wait over an hour as the other people on the bus are taken to their appointments. My appointment is at 2PM, and we arrive at the medical center at 1:57PM. Allen and I rush to the elevator and up to my oncologist’s office. By the time I get to the office it is already after 2, and when they check me in… my heart rate is 90 bpm, and my blood pressure is 130 over 97. I usually have a heart rate of about 60 to 70 with a blood pressure of 120 over 80.

.

.

My Dear Readers, I do my very best to make all appointments on time. I do my very best to never complain, and to keep positive and remain a good example of patient facing adversity with grace and honor. That is how I was raised, and it is always my goal to make good on my upbringing. Some days… it is just much more difficult than others. Today, just happens to be one of those days. I sit in the room waiting for Dr. Curti to show up. Allen is with me… Allen… I lay awake nights praying that somehow… someday I can… show… reward him for all he has done for me… and all he is about to do.

.

The next two hours I meet with; my oncologist, the chemotherapy nurse, their business manager, and my oncologist… again. It is now 4PM and my ride home is about to arrive downstairs. I am told that, for the next 18 weeks, I will be undergoing chemotherapy ever three weeks for a course of six treatments. After which they will run all their scans, again, and make the decision. I agree and the decision is made that I will undergo my chemotherapy not in the office but at the Infusion Center across the street.

.

My Dear Readers, I leave the medical center in the same rush that I arrived. I al lifted into another OCTA bus, where I wait another hour and a half to everyone else to be left off and I am taken home. I, finally, arrive home at 4PM. One visit to one oncologist… takes me from 10AM until 4PM. What I wouldn’t give for my own transportation… and an once of dignity while I face my cancer. You see, My Dear Readers that was all I ever asked for… all I ever wanted.

.

.

Today, I started this all news series here at The Other Shoe. I know that I have not been here as much or as often as in the past. My Dear Readers, this diagnosis… and, the following battle to get and obtain treatment for my Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma has taken a toll on me. A toll unlike any previous in my lifetime. I am not a man that can see into the future. I do not know IF I will live to see the end of this treatment. I will do everything in my power to not only finish this treatment but to go on and beat/meet my goal of becoming a published writer.

.

Until then, I will be HERE My Dear Readers, and I will take you along for the next 18 weeks. Be sure to come back, often, and tell all your fiends, family, co-workers, and acquaintances about my journey through cancer chemotherapy.

.

Adieu!

.

Thank you!

Ebloa and YOU – FACTS vs. Fiction

Ebola 2

(Colorized transmission electron micrograph (TEM) revealed some of the ultrastructural morphology displayed by an Ebola virus)

.

Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe! YES! Yes it has been a very long time since I wrote or published here at The Other Shoe. Now, as for that and the reasons for my absence? I will leave that for another article later this week. Look for that information in an all new edition of ‘Notes from Behind the Keyboard’. I anticipate that article to be published on Thursday or Friday of this week. Finally, before we get to the subject at hand, I would like to announce that ‘The Horror in Smithville’ will not conclude before or on Halloween… this year. The story, and the one after this one, will continue here for the next several months… or years.

.

My Dear Readers, first I am going to tell you a story. A story of the incident that lead me back to my writing and back to this blog with this article in my heart, mind and soul. Alas, I am going to share a few teasers in this paragraph. So! If you do not like spoilers, and would like this week’s reading (and next week’s, too) without any spoilers? Just move on to the second next paragraph, eh? My Dear Readers my cancer has really reared its ugly head, over the past three weeks. That has been the reason (behind the scenes) for my extended absence. Last week I had; another ‘Full Body CT Scan with Contrast’, an Ultrasound of my thyroid, and another MRI of my head, neck and upper torso. This has lead me to be ‘out’ among the masses, more than usual. Well, Allen and I were out and about and we see this middle aged woman, Anglo, with a ‘Particle Mask’ over her mouth and nose. You know, one of those one would use for sanding and painting.

.

.[FYI Spoilers are OVER!]

.

FYI those are completely useless for stopping something like ebola. So, I just couldn’t help it… I mention that fact to this woman.

.

“Hello… why are you wearing a particle mask?”

.

Woman responds-

“It is to protect me from ebola!

.

I resist the urge to laugh (for the moment), and respond-

.

“You do know that ebola is not airborne and that painting particle mask will do nothing to stop anything but a cold or maybe the flu, right?”

.

The woman harrumphs to my statement and merely responds with-

.

“Well, that is what they said about AIDS!”

.

NOW(?) I am laughing maniacally! I just cannot help myself; I break out into deep loud and unbridled laughter!

.

Allen and I go about our business, for that day, but it is in that moment that I realized that I simply must write an article to share FACTS about ebola and dispel FICTION!

.

My Dear Readers it has come to my attention that (some) ‘Conservative’ media outlets and ‘conservative’ politicians are spreading falsehoods about ebola. SOME ‘conservatives’ are spreading falsehoods and sewing seeds of fear in the American populace just before elections next week. Spreading fear and falsehoods and proffering that “president Obama is not doing enough to protect the American people from this growing threat” (FYI- THAT statement was taken directly from a very popular show on a very popular ‘conservative’ network.. I witnessed this myself).

.

Therefore, I have taken upon myself to write and try to dispel some of these blatant falsehoods, and (hopefully) alleviate some fear. I feel that it is my duty to try to counter some of the fear mongering that is taking place, just before this mid-term election. For anyone that has worked, and studied well, in the medical industry? You will know and understand the difference between these disease spreading modalities.

.

Infectious disease: A disease caused by a microorganism and therefore potentially infinitely transferable to new individuals. May or may not be communicable. Example of non communicable is disease caused by toxins from food poisoning or infection caused by toxins in the environment, such as tetanus.

Communicable disease: an infectious disease that is contagious and which can be transmitted from one source to another by infectious bacteria or viral organisms.

Contagious disease: a very communicable disease capable of spreading rapidly from one person to another by contact or close proximity.

(Disease transmission information thanks to the CDC web site[1])

.

Let’s take, as an example, the ‘Common Cold’. A Rhinovirus that is highly contagious, in that it can be passed as airborne particles from a ‘wet cough’ or sneeze by an infected and symptomatic patient. Aye, THERE’S the RUB! For there to be a transfer of ebola from one human to another? First- the infecting patient must be symptomatic! They must have a high fever, chills, muscle pain and sore throat. Even a person with ebola that is not yet symptomatic cannot spread the ebola virus.

.

Further, ebola is NOT airborne! It cannot be passed through the air. Contrary to some) ‘news’ reports the ebola virus is NOT “mutating”! It is NOT in the process of changing methods of infection or modality. Anyone that tells you that, or makes a statement of that in ‘news’ or other broadcast is merely engaging in fear mongering. Now, I have put the majority of this article in my own words. Now, I am going to hand over the rest of this information to the experts. The World Heath Organization (WHO) has more real life experience dealing with ebola than any organization on the planet.

.

Ebola Signs and symptoms

Ebola Signs and symptoms

.

Symptoms of Ebola include

  • Fever
  • Severe headache
  • Muscle pain
  • Weakness
  • Diarrhea
  • Vomiting
  • Abdominal (stomach) pain
  • Unexplained hemorrhage (bleeding or bruising)

Symptoms may appear anywhere from 2 to 21 days after exposure to Ebola, but the average is 8 to 10 days.

.

Key facts

  • Ebola virus disease (EVD), formerly known as Ebola haemorrhagic fever, is a severe, often fatal illness in humans.
  • The virus is transmitted to people from wild animals and spreads in the human population through human-to-human transmission.
  • The average EVD case fatality rate is around 50%. Case fatality rates have varied from 25% to 90% in past outbreaks.
  • The first EVD outbreaks occurred in remote villages in Central Africa, near tropical rainforests, but the most recent outbreak in west Africa has involved major urban as well as rural areas.
  • Community engagement is key to successfully controlling outbreaks. Good outbreak control relies on applying a package of interventions, namely case management, surveillance and contact tracing, a good laboratory service, safe burials and social mobilisation.
  • Early supportive care with rehydration, symptomatic treatment improves survival. There is as yet no licensed treatment proven to neutralise the virus but a range of blood, immunological and drug therapies are under development.
  • There are currently no licensed Ebola vaccines but 2 potential candidates are undergoing evaluation.[2] (From World Health Organization web site[3])
  • .

.

Further, here are some more salient FACTS about ebola.

.

Here is great information on just how ebola can be transmitted!

.

Ebola Transmission

Ebola Transmission

(Image thanks to Centers for Disease Control Web Site)

.

Transmission

It is thought that fruit bats of the Pteropodidae family are natural Ebola virus hosts. Ebola is introduced into the human population through close contact with the blood, secretions, organs or other bodily fluids of infected animals such as chimpanzees, gorillas, fruit bats, monkeys, forest antelope and porcupines found ill or dead or in the rainforest.

Ebola then spreads through human-to-human transmission via direct contact (through broken skin or mucous membranes) with the blood, secretions, organs or other bodily fluids of infected people, and with surfaces and materials (e.g. bedding, clothing) contaminated with these fluids.

Health-care workers have frequently been infected while treating patients with suspected or confirmed EVD. This has occurred through close contact with patients when infection control precautions are not strictly practiced.

Burial ceremonies in which mourners have direct contact with the body of the deceased person can also play a role in the transmission of Ebola.

People remain infectious as long as their blood and body fluids, including semen and breast milk, contain the virus. Men who have recovered from the disease can still transmit the virus through their semen for up to 7 weeks after recovery from illness.[4]

.

So, My Dear Readers, one can clearly and easily see that ebola simply cannot be transmitted via airborne contact. An uninfected person MUST come in contact with the bodily fluids of an infected and SYMPTOMATIC patient. Period.

.

.

Now, I promised myself that I will keep my re-introduction to writing and publishing… limited. I am going to do my best to keep the first articles short, and only write three times a week. I hope to publish, again, on Tuesday or Thursday. I will not be publishing on Wednesday… as I am going back to my oncologist on Wednesday. I am returning to chemotherapy. But, that is a story for another day.

.

Before I go I would like to share a handful of other sources for good information on ebola:

.

.

Now, My Dear Readers, having shared this information I would like to express my deep concern about the way certain elements in our political universe have used this disease. First, there is no need to “stop all flights into and out of areas with this disease”. That is just ignorance meant to stir up fear and to act out of ignorance. We need to keep moving people (medical and support personnel) into and out of these effected areas. It is illogical to stop all air traffic, and in the end, it will make the situation worse! These (few ‘conservative’) governors that are implementing draconian measures based not in science but in fear. We need to monitor, closely, all people that come out of the effected areas… IF they came in contact with symptomatic patients! I am just deeply offended and deeply upset by this politicalization of a deadly disease!

.

Finally, My Dear Readers, I am very happy to be back. I will do my best to keep writing and publishing all through my chemotherapy and treatments. I have every intention to complete ‘The Horror in Smithville’ as the story unfolds in my head. I was wrong to try and put some artificial deadline on this work, I realize that now. You see, just in the past two days I have had several major revelations about character development and pot lines… that, well, I would have totally missed out on if I had stuck to the deadline of Halloween!

.

I will be back tomorrow or Thursday. I do hope that you, My Dear Readers, will be bac… too!

.

Adieu!

.

Thank you!

Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. It is just after 6:30PM PST here in California. That means that there is just shy of SIX HOURS LEFT to my campaign. My Dear Readers, first I want to say ‘THANK YOU!” to my eleven Contributors to Danny’s Cancer Treatment Fund @ Indiegogo. Second, I apologize to anyone/everyone that I may have… offended(?)… disturbed(?)… bothered(?) with my frequent and persistent campaigning and posts.

.

It was never my intention to do anything but fight for my life. That leads me to; Third, for whatever reason. I have failed at my attempt to raise enough money to successfully battle my Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. That scares me to death. It scares me that I will go to face and fight this cancer and win. Last night, My Dear Readers, I lay in bed… unable to sleep or rest, gripped in fear and anxiety. I was more terrified, at the future I now face, than at any other time in my life.

.

Terrified at the prospect that this cancer may well take my life, in a time where it should not. That, by some shortcoming on my part, I have sentenced myself to a fate I would not wish on anyone. For the past forty-five days I have worked, relentlessly, on; my campaign, my two blogs, promotions, Facebook, Twitter, Pintrest, and Tumblr. Work in all these venues of social media in hopes of raising interest in my cause, and by so doing increase the potential donations.

.

I have written more, and more frequently than at any time in the past two years of my life. Spent all night, on more than one occasion, promoting, posting, cross-promoting, writing, publishing and pimping myself, my work, my cause. I am not ashamed of the $500 I have raised, and in no way should anyone that donated think I do not deeply appreciate their kindness and generosity. It is not that.

.

It is the sense that… somehow, I have failed; family, friends, close friends, fellow actors, fellow writers, past associates and even acquaintances to the point that they actively chose to not support me in my battle with cancer. My Dear Readers, I simply cannot put into words just how much that hurts! I never asked to have a typewriter fall in my head, never wanted or desired to be physically disabled, have nerve root damage, be unable to properly walk or use my left hand. Nor did I request this cancerous bane, Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.

.

I didn’t ask, but I did think that I would always have the kindness and support… that is what really hurts. Only six… five and a half hours left.

.

Please… won’t you PLEASE donate… and help me in my battle with cancer? PLEASE?

News From Around the World – September 25th, 2014

News From Around the World

News From Around the World

.

Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. Welcome to a revival of ‘News From Around the World’. I haven’t wrote or published any editions of this series for some time. However, I was looking at some news stories, earlier today, and I decided that now was the time for me to revive this series. Now, there are not going to be a lot of stories, in this first edition, but I am hoping to have more with each following edition.

.

This is the story that caught my eye, and persuaded me to write and publish this series, again. With all the troubles in our world, from ISIS… ISIL or whatever they call themselves this week, to the growing discontent of America’s minimum wage workers, to the ever advancing effects of ‘Climate Change’. Our world appears to be a planet stuck in some kind of galactic quicksand. Here is the symptom that has me the most concerned, this week. The DJIA lost over 200 points today! As I am writing this article I see that the DJIA has lost 233.77 points equal to about 1.34% of DJIA total volume.

.

“To us that would signal a threat from the Kremlin that the Russian-U.S.-Europe conflict economically might take a turn for the worse, should it be enacted. They are signaling that unless concessions or negotiations take place, we’re prepared to do this,” said Jim Russell, senior equity strategist for US Bank Wealth Management. “It’s a turn for the worse, it’s an unwelcome signaling from the Kremlin that this, a limitation on capital flows to Russia, is a possibility. Maybe the markets are reacting to it,” Russell said.”[1].

.

This drop comes right on the heals of the S&P 500 jumping the most it has in the past month. Aye, there’s the rub! It might just be me, but when we get “largest drop since___” right after (24 hours earlier) “single one month increase in years…”? Well, that is what I call ‘instability’. Instability in the financial markets. Now where have I heard that before? Oh, yes! I remember now… 2008 – 2011! And, you want to know what doesn’t help? All the nay Sayers and portents of doom coming from a particular network and its affiliates. As I learned when I was a young boy, ‘perception dictates reality’. So, let’s keep track of the pulse of the markets and I will get back to you about this tid-bit of news in October.

.

Jumping over to the tech news, we can see that Apple is just not having a good month. YES they did sell something on the order of ten million new iPhones. Then, they (Apple) released a new OS update (iOS 8.0.1) and all the sudden everybody to:

.

The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus users who downloaded the iOS update found themselves unable to access cell service or use the TouchID fingerprint sensor,”[2]

.

Apple immediately pulled the 8.0.1 update. Here’s the real BITE Apple emailed its users that “”Affected users can reinstall iOS 8 through iTunes,”[3]Which, I mean I don’t know because I do not have any Apple products, but if you just signed a new two year agreement and/or plopped down a big stack o’cash? That is not what I would want to hear from the company I just married my cellular service to for the next two years! Great thing? It ONLY effected the ten million users that just bought iPhone 6!

.

Now, as if that is not enough ‘Bad News’ for Apple, seems they have a bug (“Worse than “Hartbleed”) pointed right at its customers. It is called “Bash” and it messed with; Linux, Unix, and MciOS! Here’s the scoop on “Bash”:

.

A major security flaw that could affect Apple’s Mac and Linux operating systems has been discovered, with security experts claiming it to be more dangerous than the recent Heartbleed bug. The Shellshock bug creates a vulnerability in “Bash” — software that controls the command prompt on many computers running the Unix operating system. The Shellshock vulnerability could allow hackers to insert malicious pieces of code from a remote location and potentially take control of a machine. “The difference in significance is that with Heartbleed, what somebody could grab credentials of a user and do what they wanted, but in this case, if somebody is vulnerable, it potentially allows someone to get full system control of a victim’s system,…”[4]

.

That was a quote from David Emm senior security research at Kaspersky lab. Kaspersky has been outing Apple for its security faults and holes for the past three years. Just last year, at a computer security conference in Japan Kaspershy founder Eugene Kaspersky blasted Apple for being “A decade behind Windows OS when it comes to system security…”[5]

.

So, in just a matter of a week Apple has ten million brand new iPhone 6 users unable to make phone calls, a brand new bug “Bash” knocking a hole in the Apple iOS, and there lack of focus on system security plaguing them in the tech world. I just cannot be thankful enough that I do not have an iPhone, and iPad, or any other ‘i’ device. However, My Dear Readers, if you do have and use Apple? All I can tell you is that I think there is a Kaspersky product for use on Apple iOS. If there is? BUY IT… INSTALL IT… USE IT! I would hate for any of My Dear Readers have the identity stolen, the bank account drained, or their iPhone high jacked by some high schooler in Russia! I have nothing against ‘i’ products, I just learned and have worked on PC hardware and software since the late 80’s and I just love using a OS I know.

.

Now from ‘i’ stuff and Apple to… light bulbs! Well ‘Smart Light Bulbs’. I just caught an article on this all new ‘Smart’ light bulb being developed by “Ex-Tesla and NASA Engineers…”[6] This is not just some gimmick to sell more compact fluorescent bulbs. This is an actual ‘Smart’ device that:

.

work autonomously, both by adjusting light output based on sunlight and by learning and adapting to its owners’ household habits.”[7]

.

As device creator, Neil Joesph, see it this is the next step up from Philips Hue and the LIFX. The product is named Alba (alba is Italian for sunrise). Alba uses embedded diodes that work as sensors for; movement, ambient light, occupancy and can even (over time) adapt to the usage patterns of the user. Remembering things like, when a person gets up each day, when they are out of the home for work, and when they arrive back home from work. They speculate that these ‘Smart’ bulbs could cut energy usage by 60% to 80%! Now, that translates to paying for 80% less electricity for lighting you home! That could be tremendous savings in larger homes and businesses. This could be the wave of the future of light sources.

.

Finally, we go to Japan for the… well the worst of all the stories I have shared with you, My Dear Readers, today. In the Japanese prefecture of Wakayama… the yearly… dolphin hunting has begun. This is just (for me) a fancy… and culturally allowed yearly slaughter of dolphins!

.

Local fishermen are permitted by the Wakayama prefectural government to hunt an annual quota of nearly 2,000 dolphins and porpoises from seven different species, in accordance with what the government says is traditional practice.[8]

.

Now, My Dear Readers, I cannot even put into words just how much this sickens me. That, each and every year, these people have “a quota of 2,000 dolphins, and porpoises from several different species…”[9] I understand that this is part of a historic ritual, and rite of season that has gone on for hundreds of years prior to understanding what we now do about dolphins and porpoises. However, isn’t it the duty of man to apply knowledge to ancient and barbaric practices… and be learning, end them? Is not that they way mankind grows and develops? Are we not, by allowing and even condoning this activity, hampering the social growth of this community?

.

By allowing this to happen, by looking the other way… are we not damning these people to being backward and barbaric? Is it not the responsibility of the larger international community to temper behavior with knowledge? It seems to me, that by allowing this sick and barbaric practice to continue we are relegating these communities to a ‘social Dark Ages’. That it is our responsibility as international neighbors to make sure that sick and barbaric practices, like this one, are ended? Not only for the benefit of the animals, but for the social growth and responsibility of the people.

.

Honestly, there is just no ‘Good Reason’ to do this. There is nothing that they ‘get’ from porpoises and dolphins (nutritional wise) that they cannot get from other foods or nutritional supplements. Let me put it another way. Let’s say suddenly we find out that turkeys are highly evolved animals. That they have the potential for language and interspecies communication. I would be The First Son-of-a-gun to STOP eating turkeys! Now, My Dear Readers, I just LOVE turkey meat. Especially the dark meat, right? However, if I were to find out that these turkeys were just as smart as dolphins. Had the capability of language just like dolphins… and started looking as cute as dolphins… (OK, drop the last one there). I seriously would be the first in line to STOP EATING TURKEYS!

.

So, again, WHY are we giving the Japanese communities a pass on killing these sentient creatures? If I had the money… the ability to travel… and someone to help me. I would go there and throw myself between these barbarians and the dolphins! Period!

.

Well now, My Dear Readers, that brings us to the end of this revival of ‘News From around the World’ here at The Other Shoe. As most of you are aware, I am running a running campaign at Indiegogo to help me with the mounting costs of battling my cancer. Danny’s Cancer Treatment Fund at Indiegogo is now in its FINAL WEEK! That’s right only seven more days for me to raise as much money as I can! I hate to be so brutally honest, but I am a ‘man on a mission’. A mission to raise money to help me with; transportation costs, pharmacy costs, treatment costs, and home care costs.

.

I only hope that you, My Dear Readers, take a moment to two and look at the campaign web site. Read some of the materials. Look at some of the images and scans pics. The give so that I might live cancer free, someday. I am working as hard as I can. Often writing and publishing TWO ARTICLES A DAY! I would not ask if this were not a life-or-death situation. Please understand that I do need your help.

.

Adieu!

Thank YOU!

Notes From Behind the Keyboard – September 25th, 2014

Danny 1987

Danny 1987

.

Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. I am writing this article at midnight Wednesday, going into Thursday the 25th. I am writing this article because there are some things I would like to ‘get off my chest’. Sometimes I write these ‘Notes’ articles and then never publish. I won’t know if this is one of those or that I will publish this edition until tomorrow… when I wake up and decide. Today was, admittedly, a difficult day from the start.

.

You see, My Dear Readers, I had planned on visiting my Oncologist (Cancer Doctor) today. I had broken down, under pressure from Allen and another friend here in California, to go back and talk to my Oncologist about treatment. However, when I got up this morning… without telling us (or notifying via phone call, email or message varied by bird) the whole parking area in front of our apartment had been… … … repaved! That’s right, right in front of our apartment the parking area and the entrance into the building had all been repaved overnight. I could not see any way to get out to my ‘Para-Transit’ ride or any way for the bus to get into the apartment area to pick me up. I was greatly frustrated and told Allen that I was just going to call and cancel.

.

Allen, knowing how difficult it was to convince me to go in the first place, told me to wait. He was going to the office to ask if there was ‘any way out, and a way for the bus to come in and pick me up…’. The OCTA bus was not scheduled to arrive until 12:47-1:27PM PST so I figured, since it was only 8AM, I had time to wait and see what the management told Allen. Thirty minutes passed, and Allen came back to the apartment. First, he told me that he had to go ‘upstairs to go around the pavement, then around the building to the other side, then back down the stairs and back around to the office’. To get back home, he had to reverse the process, going up and down stairs backward from the way he went out. The managed told Allen that “everybody must go upstairs, around the building, then back down stairs to get and out of this part of the building.” Allen told the manage that “Danny has an appointment with his Oncologist TODAY and he must use his power chair… we cannot get the Power Chair up and down stairs in order to follow their convoluted path…” The manager told Allen “I don’t know what to tell you. Danny must use the stairs to get out. Anyone using the pavement, before Thursday, will be evicted.”

.

To enforce their insane and draconian policy, they had several of the maintenance staff positioned around the building monitoring people’s movements. There, simply, was no way Allen and I were getting myself and my Power Chair; up two flights of stairs, down two flights of stairs, then reversing the procedure once we get home from the doctor’s appointment. Therefore, I was forced to cancel, yet another, visit to my Oncologist. Allen had to drag me kicking and screaming to this appointment. I do not know if he will get me to schedule another appointment. FYI I did not reschedule the missed appointment, today. Don’t tell Allen, but I just do not ‘see’ how we can afford to go and… well, do all the things that they want… now.

.

That was how my day started. Then I get on line and I am going to ‘publish’ the ‘Lost in Space’ ‘Review’ of the ‘Tour of Our Solar System’ I have planned for this week. Yesterday, I spend several HOURS working on; writing, embedding links to the older articles, embedding images from the older articles into the newer article, then editing the article, then publishing (uploading the text part), then incorporating the images with the text, then proofing, then setting the automatic publish for the article. I did that last part just in case my day was so busy that I did not have time to get on line and press publish. So, the article (the review) posted without a hitch on Word Press location of The Other Shoe. Yet, over at my (primary) blog location at Blog Dot Com the article did NOT publish as scheduled.

.

Looking back, I do not believe that it has ever ‘automatically’ published as scheduled at the Blog Dot Com location. Now, as if that is not enough to get my goat. I go to check the article so I bring up the word processing software for the blog and upload the article as (I thought) I had left it. Low and behold… IT IS BLANK! That’s right, as soon as the article fully loaded I was met with a nearly completely blank page! All that was on the page was the very first image the ‘Map of Our Solar System’! Everything else was, somehow, gone! Disappeared since I saw the article last at 2AM. Hours upon hours of work… GONE! Now, My Dear Readers, I am not and ‘angry’ man. In my youth, and for awhile after my head injury, I was a bit of an angry man. I would fly off the handle, I could get frustrated pretty easily, and I had a propensity for vulgarity. By the time I was 3o’ish I had done my best to leave all that behind me. I realized that anger’ only hurts the angry person. As well, it damages your health, shortens your life, makes living with you unpalatable for most people, and generally makes you and the people around you unhappy. I have done my very best to put and keep that ‘angry’ person behind me for good.

.

However, today… I was tempted terribly. Like I have stated there was, at least, three hours of work just gone! I had to; upload the text part again, embed images from all the older articles again, proof read the article again. Then put in all the final touches which includes; embedding the applet for my Indiegogo campaign, embed the eBay logo, place linked text for eBay and Indiegogo, add my final picture at the end of the article and copy/paste my ‘© Hanning Web Wurx and The Other Shoe’ at the very end of the article. All told, I spend another two hours on an article posting I had spent three to four. You see, My Dear Readers, I ended up expending the patience and energy that I had planned on using up writing an all new episode of ‘The Horror in Smithville’ for later this week or next week. However, since I had to expend two more hours for a project I had already put to bed? I am/was not of the mind or energy to write that all new… content.

.

Truthfully? I am having a LOT of problems with the; editing, uploading, uploading new images, editing articles, uploading text, and working on articles old and new at the (primary) blog location at Blog Dot Com. If I had my druthers? I would move the primary blog to another location. If I had the money? I would purchase: The Other Shoe.com or The Other Shoe.net, or The Other Shoe.blog and I would purchase; web hosting, blog software for my computers, and get everything I need to just host and maintain my primary blog MYSELF! That is what I have wanted for the past two years.

.

Honestly, I barely have enough money to house and feed Allen and myself. We do not have enough money to spend for my ‘vanity project’ that is my blog. Seriously, I was hoping that there just might be enough money (left over out of the campaign) that I could get rid of Blog Dot Com… NOW! Truthfully, $280 is just not going to do it. If $280 is all I raise? Then I will be forced to start the campaign all over again! I cannot just quit on my battle with cancer, forever. I can put it off until I have the needed funds. However, each and every week… every month… I wait to start treatment? Well, that takes time off ‘the other end’ of my life. As well, by waiting and waiting, I am risking allowing this cancer to ‘dig in’ to the point that I might need to have several ‘Lines’ of treatment just to get this thing beat back… enough.

.

Yet, My Dear Readers, I can only do what I can do, no more no less. I know that a lot of people think that I just ‘pulled the number $25OK “Out of Thin Air’ for the campaign’. I did not. IF one were to read the whole ‘Mission Statement’ for Danny’s Cancer Treatment Fund at Indiegogo[1] they would quickly see that I have done my best to audit my campaign’s goal. I have figured for the cost of; transportation – Either months of Para-Transit OR a lump sum for purchase of a van/Car able to transport my power chair and myself, cost of extra medications not covered by my Part D Medicare provider, medications of a holistic nature to minimize the negative effects of the chemotherapy drugs, money to offset all the hours Allen will loose from his (two) jobs to- Take me to and from all appointments-stay at home with me after chemotherapy when I am most weak and/or nauseous, offset rent money lost, and/or figured in cost of moving to a batter place for Allen and I to live IF I manage to get through how ever many courses of (lines) of chemotherapy and/or Radiation therapy. My Dear Readers, I figured all the possible expenses for all lines of treatment ahead of time.

.

Quite honestly I do not want to be running a campaign, writing seven or more articles EVERY WEEK for months, all at the same time as I am dealing with a second or third line of chemotherapy! I just concluded that it would be better to try and gather all the support while I have more STRENGTH! I now realize that the majority of people did not understand my strategy and (most likely) just saw what I was trying to do as GREEDY! I have no one else but myself to blame. However, IF PEOPLE HAD READ… MORE then they would have understood my reasoning, my strategy and would have actually seen what I am trying to do as ‘smart’ and ‘Thinking AHEAD’. Something I have failed to DO most of my adult LIFE! But, I am trying to do Better. I am trying to be a better ADULT. I am working hard to be a better person, provide better for my family, and head off unexpected emergencies so that I am less of a drain on my family and FRIENDS. Though all I can see now is that my plan backfired… people are just seeing me a greedy and weak and the last thing they will ever do Is take the time to READ and understand my reasoning. It is a horrible shame that may well result in a cancer (that IS TREATABLE) taking my life rather soon.

.

Finally, My Dear Readers, I was told (by someone that I respect and admire) that if I might have to run another campaign.. ro, like, extend THIS campaign that I should notify people ASAP! Therefore, My Dear Readers, IF I do NOT make at least ¼ of my $25K GOAL? (= $6,400.00) then I will be forced to run ANOTHER Indiegogo Campaign as soon as Mid-October! I know that a lot of people will never READ so they will never understand. That is so unfortunate… so… bad for me. Yet, My Dear Readers, I simply MUST TRY! Of all the people in the world I understand my needs… the financial demands of this cancer… BETTER than anyone else in the world.

.

THAT, My Dear Readers, brings us to the end of this article, for today. I hope that I have opened some eyes, and shared some insight. It is always my intent to share, and inform. Never to judge or inflame. My words are just that, MY words. Nothing more, and certainly nothing less. I look forward to seeing you here, later today, and again tomorrow. On FRIDAY there WILL be an episode of ‘The Horror in Smithville’!!! IF I am feeling up to it… and my campaign has progressed to the point I am not forced to push it up the hill every hour? I Will edit and upload MORE of ‘The Horror in Smithville’! Perhaps we can even come to the END of ‘Part 14’ THIS WEEK!

.

As always it is a pleasure to write for you and share with you.

.

Adieu!
