[cancer] Updating the ink, general progress

This morning I am off to have the tattoos on my wrist updated. (See here [ jlake.com | LiveJournal ] for the original discussion of the tattoo process, along with photos.) [info]mlerules is coming with for moral support and documentation purposes.

In general, at the moment I feel pretty healthy. I'm not quite back to baseline, but I'm very close. That's with me only about five and half weeks out of the FOLFIRI chemo series. This is a sharp contrast to the months of recovery time from the 2010 FOLFOX chemo series. I still struggle a little bit with fatigue and sleep issues, and my lower GI is even more eccentric than usual, but that's about it. Given that my next CT scan is in two and half weeks, I'm just enjoying what I have right now, and hoping not to be plunged back into the medical mixmaster right away.

After the ink, and probably lunch out, I'll be hanging with [info]the_child this afternoon. Late in the day, I may go visit a friend who just got sprung from the hospital, if they're up to company. And there will be some Sunspin revisions at some point. That's what's going on.
