He's back, and back on the juice. Day 4 of chemo round numero 7. Feeling the effects of course, and not particularly enjoying such - nevertheless we power on. The counts didn't bounce back as strongly as I thought they might following an extra week off, but apparently it was still good enough to start treatment. And so, here we are, cheeming out again.
How did my last off week end up? After learning I'd be receiving that second week off I set out to play just about as much golf as possible, raking in 99 holes for the week (or 8 days, Sunday-Sunday). The weather is perfect for it and I was full of energy so I simply did what had to be done. Felt right.
Things that are not making this any easier: 1) The New York Giants. What a farcical showing it has been thus far. 2) Pumpkin Spice Lattes. Can't have them during chemo weeks due to high acidity...but they're so good. Judge away. 3) This weather. Unbelievably nice week and of course I'm stuck inside feeling like, well, a chemo patient. Cruel and unusual punishment, indeed.
Things to look forward to: 1) The next off-week(s). Always. 2) The New York Rangers. Sorta...this one could get ugly fast. 3) Today starts the TOUR Championship...a little golf to watch and nod off to certainly helps during chemo weeks.
Almost time to get those Halloween decorations out. Great time of the year. Enjoy everybody.
