Cycle III

The hospital (Bone Marrow Transplant Unit) called late last week and Cycle III of my chemo begins July 2, running through the 3, 4 and 5. In my last visit to the Unit last week, Dr. Ansti told me how happy she was with how things were proceeding and that this 3rd session of "induction" chemo will likely be my last. Then, in another 4-6 weeks the high dose chemo and stem cell harvesting will begin.

Here's some depictions of chemo I found on the internet:

Maryse and I have tickets to the Bluesfest July 4, to see Van Morrison. I hope I can make it. I've been looking forward to this for some time.

Paroxysm Paradox

The weather was unseasonably warm for October. The sun set around 6:30 but the daylight hours were quite enjoyable. So thought Richard, as he set out for his daily walk in the woods. He marvelled at the turning leaves which exhibited an explosion of colour more significant with each passing day.

But Richard knew the turning leaves would soon start to fall. And the trees would soon be bare with no leaves at all. And then the snow would fly and fall from the trees as the leaves had before it.

Richard couldn't help but think of the sudden change to come as a seizure of sorts. And he wasn't looking forward to it. After all, who would welcome a seizure, he thought, as he rolled uncontrollably among the leaves.

This week paroxysm/seizure was the prompt at Two Word Tuesday.
