Friday “Twilight”

In Uncategorized on May 17, 2009 at 8:03 pm

    It turned out that what the doctor ordered was for me to receive 2 units of packed, whole blood.  Score one for imaginative ears.  Let me see, after about 1:45 hours getting chemo on Thursday, plus about 2:45 hours getting blood before my shots on Friday……let’s just say that I haven’t spent that much time awake in the presense of drips since I ran the “fish bowl” one year during rush at the Phi Kappa Sigma house back at W&L.  “Our college friendships soon must sever, and fade…….”  Never mind!  I don’t know if this one experience with transfusing will leave me with a taste for blood, but if you find me around some evening talking with a strange sepulchral accent and wearing a black cape and white make-up, don’t think twice about it.  It’s how I usually get ready for bed.

    After an achy yesterday, I am feeling better and more energetic than I have in a long time.  Maybe these good docs know a little something about what they are doing?

    Keep the faith!
