Cancer Girl

So like so many other mindless adventures on the web, today's happen to cross paths with something interesting: The Adventures Of Cancer Girl.

Now I have created yet another blog to clutter up the net. I happen to write in my exclusive diary... for no particular exclusionary reason. I thought this would be a nice experiment in connected creativity.

I was tentatively diagnosed with multiple myeloma on December 27, just a few months ago. On the 5th of January I was officially overhelmed with X-Rays, strange blood tests and bone marrow biopsy results. I have stage one myeloma.

This is a quest to poke a little humor into myeloma. You can now endearingly refer to me as "My eloma boy" Just what we define eloma to be is yet to realized.

A search turned up "For 30 years Eloma GmbH has been one of the leading manufacturers of combi-steamers and bake-off ovens." I love bake-off's. We had one at our 50's Prom Murder Mystery wedding party - that is a major side track I'm not traveling today. I now want an "Eloma Joker Combi-cooking/Regenerating/Convection Oven"

How about
Please submit to the eLOMA Coordinator for processing at the following address:
Federal Emergency Management Agency, Attn: eLOMA Coordinator
I need an eLOMA coordinator. You have no idea how much advise and info I get every day. I also had no idea that I could submit an Electronic Letter of Map Amendment (eLOMA) to FEMA and possibly get the flood of plasma cells in my home added to the federal flood map.

Your help in acronymizing or otherwise defining eloma would be appreciated.

Looks like the beginnings of a cool blog. I'm looking forward to reading more posts! Not sure of the meaning of eloma, but I just realized that you can sing "My Eloma" to the tune of "My Sharona". Now the trick is to write the rest of the lyrics!
