The Calm Before the Storm, I Guess?

Well, howdy there and welcome back, everyone! I don't really have any news at this point that I haven't already shared with you. Last week, as we all know, we celebrated Thanksgiving here in the Lower 48. Mr. 50by60 and I spent it at the lovely home of his mom, Mrs. 50by60 Senior (I guess? … Continue reading The Calm Before the Storm, I Guess?

Episode 4, A New Hope! (aka Half a Can is Better than None)

Hi, everyone, and welcome to yet another chapter of my Road Trip to Cancer City!! Okay, so I need to work on my titles! Anyway, since last week, I visited an oncologist, who wasn't quite as helpful as I'd hoped but who did clarify a couple of points. Then I went back to my surgeon, … Continue reading Episode 4, A New Hope! (aka Half a Can is Better than None)

Information overload!

Hey, everyone, and welcome back to my Road Trip to Cancer City, which is probably a much-too-cheerful title, given that it's a very UN-cheerful situation! I wasn't going to blog at all today, given that my basic position right now is between a rock (surgical oncologist this past Monday) and a hard place (oncologist visit … Continue reading Information overload!

Aw crap, looks like it’s cancer, dagnabit! (a less-than-inspirational post title, but then again, it’s a less-than-inspirational disease, ain’t it?)

Hi everyone! Well, if you're in my circle of family and Facebook friends, you've already heard the bad news. Now it's time to let you, my faithful 50by60.com blog followers, know as well. And I was sure I could come up with a better title, like maybe, "From Weight Loss to Cancer: A New Journey," … Continue reading Aw crap, looks like it’s cancer, dagnabit!

Weighing in on my latest excuse for not weighing in!

Hey, friends and neighbors! Remember last week, when I bored you with the details of a dream I'd had just before I rolled out of bed to write this blog? Well, this week is going to be a LOT like last week, in that I'm going to drone on about a medical procedure I had … Continue reading Weighing in on my latest excuse for not weighing in!

Dreams, prayers, raccoons, and Andrew Lloyd Webber, all on the same blog just for you!

Are we ... awake? So I had this weird dream (and yeah, I'm going to make you read about it!). I was in this big hall where people were singing what sounded more or less like hymns, happy ones, and lots of children running around, so it was probably my semi-annual visit to Heaven for … Continue reading Dreams, prayers, raccoons, and Andrew Lloyd Webber, all on the same blog just for you!

This was unexpected, sorta like a rabbit in the front yard!

Welp, I was all set to apologize for yet another weight gain, but my scales surprised me this morning! 207.4 Actually down a bit since last week, so that was a pleasant surprise. Sorta like the rabbit that popped up in our front yard this past week! No, no, this one's not quite as bad … Continue reading This was unexpected, sorta like a rabbit in the front yard!

Okay, campers, rise and shine, and don't forget your booties 'cause it's cooooold out there today!! Nope, no worries, your calendar is correct (assuming it says October 13th)! However, I'm taking yet another break, so I thought I'd just mess with your head a little! However, it is definitely cold out there today!

Don’t worry, blog’s not broken, even though I keep taking breaks!

Yeah, I had to take a break last week, due to a sad situation in the 50by60 family -- my younger brother, Michael, passed away from COVID-19. It was unexpected, and I took a trip back home to visit my parents and sister for a few days. Three Boomer siblings in the '60s If you're … Continue reading Don’t worry, blog’s not broken, even though I keep taking breaks!

My brain is not cooperating!

Well, hey, everyone! I'm sorry to say my weight has gone up yet again this week, a whopping 209.0 and to be honest, I'm kinda wondering if my brain is just not processing the orders I'm giving it correctly. I mean, several times in the past few weeks, I've told it that I want to … Continue reading My brain is not cooperating!
