They are pumping me full of saline solution – liters and liters of the stuff – to keep my bladder irrigated which is the standard procedure to avoid infection. The corollary effect, however, is a lot of … uh … discharge. The Chemo is starting to make me queasy but it’s being managed. My appetite is already gone and I’m feeling sleepy and a little down, but generally still feel like I’m on a good track.
Tomorrow we start radiation. That scares the shit out of me. But I have CDs with me that they can play whilst I’m being zapped so hopefully that’ll be ok. It may be difficult to write for a couple of days given the upcoming procedure, but I’ll try.
Strength and love,
