[cancer] And lo, I have slept some more

...and it was good. Almost too much, but that's the car-on-ice effect of dealing with chemo. By my current (wretched) standards I actually feel rested, so I'll take it.

Still chewing on recovery and post-chemo issues, about which I will post more as time goes by. I talked about the chemo port yesterday [ jlake.com | LiveJournal ]
. Another big one will be expectation management. Coming off the needle for the last time on 6/20 isn't really the end of anything except a large piece of process. It will take me weeks, months, and in some cases years, to recover from the effects of chemo. So I'll need to guard against early disappointment or overextending myself, for example.

Like I said, more about that when I get the chance. Plus the tests, oi the tests. I suspect I'll spend the rest of my life being a human lab rat. So long as I get to keep my mind more-or-less intact.

For now I am rested.
