Skeletion Deletion

After two kind of blissful days on chemo with no serious side-effects, my dream run seems to be coming to an end. I am sore. I don’t think it is the effects of the chemo just yet, my ribs are just in agony. Because my painkillers and steroids are masking a lot of the pain, I think I am just doing things that are continually breaking them, forgetting that I have chalk for bones at the moment. Sleeping on my side is enough to get audible clicks.

Which makes me wonder how I got through the Thai massages I was having at the end of last year. Before I knew my bone density was bad, I was having massages that would involve people walking on my legs, rolling me backward over their knees, contorting me in ways I had only seen on Ripleys Believe It Or Not. Somehow I got through without having to be scraped off the floor and carried home in a wheelbarrow.

The other effects of chemo haven’t seemed to kick in yet at day four. I haven’t felt nauseous, haven’t lost my hair, haven’t had any other complications apart from brain fog (so I have been told). Just the ribs. If God wanted to create any more women the same way he did last time, I have a few ribs floating around in me that I would happily get rid of at this stage. My genetic characteristics may leave a lot to be desired, although my legs would look more at home on a woman’s body than mine.
