Today I made some more progress on the book I am writing. I'm just working on getting a much as I can out before I start really editing the whole thing. That's my main focus. I did this before with The Mediocre Programmer and it seemed to work well. Sure, there may be things that get edited in the moment but I find getting these thought out without worrying about editing them can help me not overthink the writing process.

I got the results from my blood test. Apparently my LDL cholesterol is low and everything that is related to my liver is way messed up. That tracks because I have cancer in my liver. We don't have the results interpreted by Dr. TImmis yet but that's what I'm seeing in there. Oh, and that I need to exercise more.

This evening I had the same diarrhea that I had last week. Rather than try to fight it I realized I wanted to be more mindful about what was going on. It's not like I was able to control it (save for trying to use Imodium to slow it down and Gatorade to help me rehydrate). It actually helped me to be more relaxed about the whole ordeal.

I'm not sure if this is going to be a daily occurrence but it seems this is going to happen often enough to be a problem. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a bit tired of these side effects but it's all part of the process.

More as I know it.
