I had the second round of chemo today. It started at 10:30 and ended at 2:30. Prior to beginning, Eileen and I visited with Dr. Shipp to talk about the results of yesterday’s blood test, and discuss how I am doing. Dr. Shipp said, “You are the poster boy for handling Dense Dose M-Vac Chemotherapy.”
That is amazing! Mostly because Dr. Shipp is younger than me and she called me a boy! (It’s also good news that I am handling it all so well.)
Of course I am fully aware that chemo can change at any moment and a week from today I might be the poster boy for bald men projectile vomiting. If that should happen, I will embrace the experience and we will take another photo. But I don’t think Eileen will be standing in front of me.
