Jeff Cohen Lately, comedy has been the rule in my household. This time in my life (until summer, one assumes) is wide open to distraction, and anything cheerful is especially welcome. So my family has been indulging me with our... Continue reading

Jeff Cohen Just for a refreshing change of pace (that's foreshadowing) let's not discuss politics or cancer this week. Because they've become too similar. Instead, let's talk about writing. One of the things a writer of any fiction (or anything... Continue reading

I’m guessing the goatee doesn’t have much longer. That’s the way it goes. It’ll all come back in the summer. I’m pretty sure.

Not this time. My chemo nurse very specifically put me on the Disabled List for shoveling and I won’t come off this season. I’ll go into training to shovel again sometime next fall.

Jeff Cohen Before During People have been getting in touch because I've posted here and there (mostly there) about losing my hair to chemotherapy. They think I'm overly distressed by this development, that I'm sitting around mourning my lost... I... Continue reading

What? No mention of the Cohen/Copperman collaboration (!) coming up? I'm appalled. (Not really.) Glad you got to refresh yourself, Terri. Now have at it! By the way, I do see THE QUESTION OF THE ABSENTEE FATHER in the titles you pictured, so all is forgiven.

Jeff Cohen "Health" update: Got through Treatment #2. Much the same as Treatment #1, but no reaction in the middle, which was good. So far, so not terrible. As you saw last week, I now resemble the Jewish Lex Luthor.... Continue reading

Jeff Cohen This is me now. A dear friend came to visit the other day (just tell people you're a cancer patient and they start to show up). He's also a writer, although in a different field, so naturally the... Continue reading

Not sure about that, Jeannie, but I know a number are available on iTunes for a price and probably others can be found on YouTube. Better info:http://shorts.tv/theoscarshorts/

Jeff Cohen "Health" update: For those anticipating some information on my treatment, I'll be giving you periodic updates here. Feel free to skip them if you just want to get to the other stuff. The first infusion of chemo and... Continue reading

I’m already writing four series, Linda. I need the occasional hour off. But I appreciate the sentiment. Aaron likes you too.

Jeff Cohen If you read last week's post and are expecting some update on my condition, like how I'm tolerating chemotherapy, here's the fact: I don't know. I'm writing this before I began treatment. If there are updates, I'll pass... Continue reading

Well, what is, really?

Thank you, Linda. So far, one treatment down and five to go, and the side effects have not been bad yet. I’m told the hair will go after the next treatment on March 1. But it’ll grow back.

I’m very touched. The messages from my friends are making it less horrible, and that’s a big step. Thanks, Elayne. Means a lot coming from you.

Thank you, Merrilee!

Wow—this is like a Mysterious Detective book! Thanks, Aaron. Among other weapons are the drugs they’re giving me, which won’t be fun but should do the trick. Thanks for the kind words and NEVER call me “sir” again. P.S. There will be no wig. It’s real curls or none at all.
