CHEMO

Finally, today, I was told I have a rare disease named Waldenström’s Macroglobulinemia. The doctor then asked if I was ready to begin chemo. “When?” says I. “Tomorrow,” came the reply.

I report at 9: 30 AM to have a pic line inserted and then I’ll be taken to the ninth floor to begin the treatment. They will let me out on Saturday afternoon, with bags of nasty pills to take. This will happen for the next four months.

If you don’t hear from me for a few days, don’t give up on the site. As my African Grey Parrott says, “I’ll be back sooooooooooon.”

Do keep Pat and the family in your prayers.
