CHEMO RESUMES

I spent 2 hours at the hospital today getting updated on the next steps towards my stem cell transplant. The next step starts tomorrow with a 4 hour chemo session, apparently, beginning at 7:30am. The doctor wrote a multitude of prescriptions, largely of an anti-nausea variety, which I picked up on my way home.

I'm back at the hospital again Saturday for a 4 hour "hydration" session, then after several days of "recuperation" I take a self-injected drug for 6 days prior to stem cell collection September 18th.

Complicating my hospital visits is the fact the province took away my drivers license. They say that my "doses of medication used and (my) general condition constitutes a hazard for road safety." With Maryse out of town this week, Megan was kind enough to take me today. Tomorrow and Saturday I'll be cabbing it.

I've yet to learn what's involved in the post-collection phase, but will pass the information along when I do.

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.
