  • Chemo...uneventful. Nothing new from doctor. No one else getting treatment while I was there.
  • Blood work...annoying. Will not go back to this lab again. The woman doing the work talks and talks and talks, on things such as a baby possum that got into her house for two weeks. The smell of urine in her house finally gave it away. The only highlight was a guy who was getting blood taken. He was on the on the phone telling someone how he hates needles. Yet he had a whole bunch of tattoos. But those are "fun needles."  He also smokes a lot of weed, drinks a lot, and smokes a pack of cigarettes a day. He hadn't been to a doctor in 10 years, but he is perfectly healthy. How about that?
  • Kidney doctor...very good. The kidneys continue to make improvement and I can expand my diet a bit. This includes the occasional banana and occasional beer.  Thank you Leslie for keeping me focused on the diet and improving those kidneys. And thank you Beachwood BBQ for the celebratory pulled chicken sandwich and IPA.
