That wasn't quite as bad as session one either of the first two times. I remained more lucid, though just as fatigued. Never really got out of my chair on Saturday at all. And thank you again to my family and friends for my new powered recliner.


As mentioned yesterday, the side effects are already happening. Everything from the first stirrings of peripheral neuropathy to cognitive impairments. I lost five pounds in three days. My friends and family are being very adversely affected as well. Some hard times this weekend, both here at Nuevo Rancho Lake and elsewhere.

As for today, I am feeling remarkably okay.

Still, we persevere. Because what else is there to do?

Yay for the recliner, but man it's heartbreaking to see someone so full of life as you sitting there so worn out. Best wishes.

Persevere! That's a battle cry with spoons.
