[cancer] Sometimes you win small, in big ways

Yesterday was the best day I've had in weeks. Woke up from a solid night's sleep. Very productive at the Day Jobbe. Got in a bit of emergency parenting. Managed two hours and a bit more of writing related program activities. It's not new wordage, but it counts. Some continued GI distress, and my usual fatigue patterns, but that's pretty much the new normal. And I sold a story to tor.com.

So, yeah, good day.

Of course, that meant a ragged night's sleep last night. Woke up at 2:45 am with a headache. Gave up on trying to sleep at 3:30 am. Today will not be quite so swell.

However, today will be substantially improved as calendula_witch returns this afternoon. shelly_rae will be back tomorrow night. Friday, of course, is infusion session eight nine of twelve. [ETA: Ah, chemo brain.]

There is a potential wrinkle in the wind, as mononucleosis may be going around the_child's class, with a confirmed case in the sibling of a classmate and a couple of suspected cases among her peers, so some chance exists I've been exposed. I will be calling into the oncology unit today for advice, as I believe there is a fairly simple blood test for this if they want to check me.

If it ain't one damned thing it's another. And so on and so on, scoobie doobie doo.
