chemo session #2

The blood courier for my designated local pathology centre routinely does the first daily pick up at 8.30 am. This morning, he was called specifically to collect my blood to ensure that, after yesterday’s mission failure, it would be tested in time for the green light to be given for a 10.00 am start to the second infusion. Good results delivered in plenty of time. Success!

Here’s me enjoying my last cup of coffee for a little while as the second cycle begins. Note that I’m rocking my red dragon cap fashioned from the aforesaid travel buff mentioned in a previous post.

Chemo session #2 - 22 April 2014

For this and future cycles, the oncologist reckons I’m up for more of the same this time around. When he says more of the same, he means MORE of the same.

Today’s educational inclusion (for your edification) relates to nasal hair and one of its functions – the collection of moisture. Tissues at the ready for the next couple of months with the hope that the flu shot a few weeks ago wards off any head colds!
