I did not blog each day of chemo this time due to the extreme sleep. I think I slept about 25 hours over a two day period from Friday afternoon to Sunday afternoon. I also spent much of my waking time dozing.

H— took care of me this time. She made me a matching hat and gloves while she was here.


We had cute monkey bandages for when I came off the needle.


[info]the_child made the 4/12 burning.



And lo, we burned it.


No nausea, lots of sleep, and I'm feeling pretty ok.

As usual, more at the Flickr set.

Most days, that's the best anyone can hope for, really...

You're wearing chicken legs on your head. I think maybe we ought to talk to the doctor about those meds. The side effects are . . . peculiar.

I think the silliness of the hat and gloves is awesome. Just so we're clear.

I don't suppose those were my monkey bandages?

See you very soon!

Hey, give him a hug for me when you see him, okay? (And have him hug you for me--only fair.) :-)

You're now a third of the way through. Great to read you're holding up well and even able to travel. Sleep and no nausea - both good.

What you need now is some chicken feet to go with the hat and gloves.

Sounds like you may have found your groove for this chemo protocol.

Fine hat, sir.
I'm glad there was no nausea this time round.
