Cancer Bitch and Snowpocalypse 3: The Snowening
Yeah, you could say that we're laughing in the face of cancer. Or you could look closely and see that those are candy cigarettes.
Had a wild ride to Johns Hopkins yesterday for my third treatment. We left at 6:30am. Roads were snowpacked, cars spun out everywhere. Steve got us in at 8:45 am.
Guess what? Their staff didn't make it. The trial nurse was no where to be found, not enough people in the lab.
We didn't leave Baltimore until almost 5pm. Came straight home and got in the bed.
So far, the chemo has exhausted me and caused nausea, but I haven't lost my hair. Yet. Every day I wake up and yank a dread just to see. Don't want to lose them while walking around in public. I also now have the complexion of a hormonal teenager. Damn.
Mom and I watched movies all weekend, including "Something the Lord Made." While were at Johns Hopkins I showed her the Blalock Wing - didnt get a chance to see the portraits, though...
