(11) A Star Is Born!

Poster BoyI 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.
