Twelve hours straight through last night, sleeping. And that's me off the chemo pump. Between that and the near-continuous lower GI distress, I don't know how chemo could have gone on much longer. This is the bottoming out, right here.

For today, however, no wit or erudition. Soon, soon.

I'm curious.....does the sleep help?

Or does it just tend to make you more sluggish and wanting to sleep even more - like what happens under normal conditions....?

I sure am glad you're done with all of this! And I hope for good...I really do, regardless of the odds.

I'm sure it helps my body a lot, but it also makes me very sluggish indeed.

Wit and erudition, unlike rest and recovery, are always able to wait.

Before enlightenment, sleep, rest.
After enlightenment, sleep, rest.

But you're not mentioning any more weird, lurid dreams. I love those when they come visiting, personally.

bottoming out

Well, only exceedingly minor wit, anyway. ;-P
