A Little Clarification & Other Matters

It's hard to stay chipper when you're just so damned tired!  Some days I think I need more antidepressants, but then I remember it's just fatigue.  It better be something I'll get over because I am leading a really useless life just now.

But I'm cheap to keep.  I've lost 13 kilos (28.5 pounds; 2 stone) since my operation.  Just not hungry.  Losing 13 is O.K. because that's what I'd gained, but it's time to call a halt.

Anyway, on a cheerier note, sort of, I have recalled that I've had spots before -- on my lung.  Sometimes they're there and sometimes they're not.  Or sometimes the oncologist mentions them and sometimes he doesn't.  When he does, he tells me they're "nothing."  So I guess the liver spots are the same.

And here are a few pictures I've been meaning to post.

Lance Armstrong's 1999 Yellow Jersey from the Tour de France, donated to Centre Léon Bérard, the hospital I go to.

The T-shirt says, "Behind every successful woman there is frequently a rather talented cat."

The 13 kilos disappeared between this picture and the next.

Wave bye-bye to what hair we had time to grow.

The T-shirt says "Thousands of years ago, cats were worshipped as gods.  Cats have never forgotten this."


  1. As Lance Armstrong might say Stay Strong.

  2. Poor Margot! You say "just fatigue" like it is somehow less real or important -- it's not. Make those darn doctors fix it dammit!

    R&R&Z&D too!

  3. Well I wouldn't say useless...I doubt anyone you know would describe your life as useless! But constant fatigue must be very draining.
    Yay for spots that are "meh, just spots" though.


  4. checking in and happy to see that you are looking good. and that the spots are nothing. Stay Strong girl!!!! from joleen and the shar pei pack
