Doing pretty well for post-infusion. Side effects have been pleasingly minimal thus far. However, this morning I'm hungry for protein, in a big way. (Been dreaming of the fabulous gyro omelette at the Hotcake House, though that isn't practical for me to go eat right now.) Will solve that soon otherwise.

shelly_rae departs this morning, after which I'm on my own til a week from Thursday, when both she and calendula_witch return for chemo session six. The halfway point.

I hope the Right Brain comes back on this afternoon. I'm planning to hit the Fireside writers today, at least for a little while, and need to work on the Sekrit Projekt as well as the religious steampunk lost colony novella. This weekend is tax prep time for me.

Chemo sucks, but the alternative is worse. One day at a time, as they say in another line of recovery.

My tax picture is pretty consistent year over year so it's not so hard. My records are all in one place, but I tend to follow the "bin-and-sort" method. Someday I might be able to afford an assistant...

And chemo, yes, it impacts everything.

Those medical records must complicate things a wee bit.

A wee bit, yes, but I've been dealing with cancer since 2008, so even that's in there now.
