No Fooling.

Posted: April 1, 2019 in Postcards from Cancerland.


It’s April’s Fools Day and I start a new round of chemotherapy…no fooling!

I’m sitting in the big vinyl blue chair, the weirdly soothing koosh koosh rhythm of the IV machine is going off. Today, I receive a virtual smorgasbord of fluids, anti-nausea juice boxes, steroids, and a wicked new chemo drug…no fooling!
The clinic staff is wearing T-shirts with my shiny face on them. That’s my nurse Chad in the picture. He and the rest of the staff have become friends and family. They are truly amazing humans! I can’t believe they are sporting the shirts! That’s very kind and pretty wild!!…no fooling!
I experienced a lot of pain this past weekend, mostly in my back and I threw up a few times. I’ve never been a big fan of throwing up!
It made me wonder what I have to look forward to this week.
I also didn’t get much sleep at all…no fooling.
I was in the chair for eight hours.
It was empty then full then empty.
We were first to get to the party…
Then last to leave.
That is how I have always liked to roll.
No fooling.
