Planning the future

I have informed Dr. Hema's office that I prefer the aggressive approach to treatment of my illness and for it to start as soon as possible. They have tentatively set aside July 29 for a possible intravenous chemotherapy treatment. His nurse said the treatment would likely last all day. Wow! I wonder if I can bring a laptop...

This will sap and impurify my precious bodily fluids. Snaps up to the first family member that emails the name of the movie this line is from. No googling!

I am a bit concerned about some of our travel plans. We have reservations in place to visit family in early August and are eying a cruise in early October. The cruise ship has a multitude of amenities, spas, restaurants, casino, movies, etc., but I doubt they have a chemo suite!

I am committed to have as much fun as possible for as long as possible, so we may have to do some juggling.

Today's weight was 161, so, with impunity, we went out to breakfast where, once again, I embarrassed myself with the sheer quantity of greasy, fatty food I ordered and consumed. I have high hopes that if we can get the lymphoma into remission that my anemia and iron deficiency will abate and I can gain some, not too much, weight.
