I only got about three chunks of two-three hours of sleep last night because I had to wake-up at both midnight and 6 a.m. to take...you guessed it...more steroids! I know that's as much or more sleep than many Americans get on an average night but it's not how I like to roll. I like a good six-eight hour stretch, at a minimum.
Well, I was just going to write about what I've done so far today (a great 30-minute morning constitutional with my loaner dog AND a fantastic homemade smoothie with the Hemp Protein supplement that my friend Jim gave me last night) but I just got "the call" from INOVA Fairfax. Time to roll! I have two hours to get to the hospital to claim my bed and get Day 8's treatment underway, which is a three-four hour infusion of Taxol that will probably take a total of eight - 10 hours. That's how it goes: Every hour of actual infusion time equals about two hours of hospital time after you account for pharmacy delays, pre-med infusions, post-infusion rotisserie chicken action (more on that later...), etc.
Okay, gotta go. Time to shower (never know when your next one is gonna be, right?), collect my things, and my mother!
