Looks like they're keeping me here for yet another day or two. It's not that bad other than shear boredom. The rooms are private and pretty new. Kind of like a Holiday Inn hospitality suite. I'm through one full TPN feeding cycle and feeling pretty decent.....almost like I ate something. And the drugs here are plentiful and strong. My favorite is the 20mg shot of Hydromorphone. It's the closest thing I can imagine to being an actual heroin junkie.
An ambulance will be coming at 4:30pm to take me to my radiation treatment, just like yesterday. It's weird, they strap me on a gurney, wheel me a waiting ambulance and drive me 50 yards across the parking lot to another wing. They even hit the lights and siren to amuse me.
Anyway, here's a short update to my condition.
**** CAUTION ****
I look real bad..... like I've aged 40 years and am dying. I don't normally look anything like this.
