Arrived a little before 9. Done a little after 2. I am now feeling vaguely ill and out of sorts, with considerable skin pricking and some mild disorientation. Just received a substantial bolus of 5FU, and am now carrying the infusion pump to go home with until Sunday afternoon. Pharmacist has oriented me on the constellation of takehome drugs for side effect control.

Leaving shortly for the pharmacy, home, and horizontalness.

Indulge yourself in the rest you so clearly need. Thinking of you.

I know you don't like taking meds, but it really is best to stick to the schedule for the side effect mitigating drugs. This was a hard lesson for my mother (a woman who was hesitant to take half a tylenol for a headache) to learn, but when she did, it made a huge difference in her quality of life.

Rest up, the intarwebz are thinking of you and wishing you well!
