Jan 07

Today was chemo day.  My first of the new year, back in my “regular” office that is ten minutes from my home, and I had a good talk with Dr. Wonderful to kick it off.  He is onboard with me flexing to three-and-a-half weeks instead of three weeks when I want to; the benefit is that I gain three to four “good days” at the end of each cycle...
