hey folks. just a real brief update here.
i had my first chemotherapy appointment on the 7th. i've only these last two days begun to feel truly human again, and i'm still very easily fatigued by very basic things (a walk down the block, for example) but at least i can once again sit up in a chair. my immune system is shot, i have to wear a facemask even in some parts of my own house (and with the cats when they want to get in my face) and there's a laundry list of items i can no longer eat...
and they tell me the second chemo is worse than the first. that is coming up on the 21st. the effect is said to be cumulative. i'm well taken care of, but if i do not post anything or cannot create anything... well, you know why. it's pretty awful, i certainly would not suggest anyone do chemo just for the experience of it.
my tenative end date for chemotherapy at this time is june 13th. if i react badly to the medications (i have to go to the ER if my temp reaches a measly 100.5f for example) that date may be pushed back. but i'm determined for it not to be.
one project i'm still trying (and somewhat able) to work on while this ill is my audiobook version of the scifi book Sin in Space. you can check it out here:http://demon-sushi.com/sin-in-space
i am also posting more regular updates to my twitter (@hi_cial) and photos of simon the sloth orb adventuring around doctors offices on my instagram (@hekshano) so feel free to follow those if you're curious how i'm doing on a more day to day basis.
see you again soon... with one more chemo visit behind me.
