A New Phase
Tonight I come to the end of the actual chemo. This is a good thing, I guess. At least it is a milestone. For the next week I will be living without a real immune system. Any bug that I catch could mean trouble. It seems there are also bugs (not the scientific term, but you know what I mean) which reside in my body which could give me trouble.
Now is when I am really, really, really,really glad to be at Memorial Sloan- Kettering. I know they’ve got my back. Whatever problems appear in the next week (and I am told there will be problems) I know that these smart people will bring all their vast experience, brain power, professionalism and compassion  to the care they give me.
I thank them for being here for me…
