Buying Stuff on Amazon

Things are looking up. You know your life is improving when you buy toilet paper, paper towels, and trash bags in huge quantities on Amazon at 4:00 AM. Two weeks ago, I wasn't confident doing that. I had not yet received the confirmation that I was in remission.

You don't make big plans for paper products if you think you might die. There are a lot of things you shove to the side if you think you might die.

It's been amazing. I care about so many things now. Other stuff has been tossed aside as not important. Everything has changed.

I want to thank everyone for your time, effort, generosity, love, and support. I have a long way to travel before I am completely "back" on my game, but I move forward with confidence and a humble heart.

Thank you for loving me and letting me learn to love you.

    Welcome back Captain.

  12. I hadn’t thought about those things (paper products) I (we) were more concerned with funeral plans and financial information. I’m glad you feel like you are getting better. It’s what we all prayed for.
