Most days I don't feel anything during the treatment, but in the last week I've started to feel a little buzz in the muscle as the machine goes through its routine.
In the evenings I'm starting to be able to quote Tony Horton, "Feel the burn." By morning it all feels relatively normal again. Some point in the next week or so, I expect they will turn up the heat and go into the more intense treatments for 5-7 days.
I've volunteered for a post-chemo study at UT Nursing School and I was able to answer "Often" to about 75% of the qualifying questions that she asked relative to my ability to focus, get things done, etc. It was actually quite encouraging that so many of the questions were things I was experiencing. The official study will likely begin in January.
Larry's surgery went well last week Thursday. He was up and around town on Friday feeling pretty good. By Saturday he was ready to go and pick J's new show pigs. J wanted to be sure I added a picture of the new pigs to the blog.
The black Hampshire pig is named Arthur. So far the Chester pig remains unnamed, and J is willing to entertain any suggestions you may have. Feel free to reply to this email with your suggestion.
- Thanksgiving for L's successful surgery
- Continued healing for L's thumb
- Focus in getting things done
