Life going on

Normal life resumes- I spent yesterday morning at the hospital getting a cannula for a blood test. The blood test will determine whether my bloods are ok enough to get the chemo in the afternoon. The chemo regime is pretty full on, and it looks like it will take up quite a bit of time over the next few months especially.

The drugs have taken a big toll on my body. I still cannot focus properly, and I have the twitch in my hands that ensures I find difficulty when typing, but these side effects may be pretty normal. It is hard to know what is normal anymore with so many drugs going through the system at this point.

Pretty tired now. Am meant to head to Fremantle today, but may have to rest up instead. Ash stars some work local work today, more for sanity than anything else. Looking forward to something other than health focus to be honest.

Hi Cam
much better to have a chemo nurse put in those pipes!
I wonder if you can refuse to be (mis-) used as a training body in Charlies?

You may find focussing on intellectual pursuits a distraction from other issues. Try this vid with Carl Sagan’s voice:

From Phil Plait’s blog page of yesterday. Always a good read for science and non-science!
