Day 17

preemptive haircut

First day back to the transplant unit, did some lab tests to make sure I’m still viable. Everything should be okay, nothing’s changed as far as I know, followed the rules etc. Finally met Dr. Chin (only part of his name, there are about 30 more letters but everyone calls him Dr. Chin). He was a little hard to understand, but didn’t say anything that anyone else hasn’t already said. He did mention that when my blood counts went down that I’d look like an old man until they rebounded. That’s funny.

My favorite Nurse Practitioner Donna reminded me that all of my hair will fall out after the chemo, including the goatee. As that’s the second time she’s mentioned it, I’ve decide to get ahead of the game and trim my head, getting the same style as when I joined the Army. Good times.

Whaddya think?

Best part of the day was talking to Josh, deciding how we can save the world. Looking forward to more of that.

Worst part was working on a complex website for a Rotary fundraiser. Made some progress though. Good enough for now. I’m tired.

Got the day off tomorrow, Josh & I might stop by the Frist Art center or something.

What's all this?

I’ve consolidated my health updates to friends & family from other sites for convenience.

GoFundMe & MyLifeLine were super-easy to use, but I didn’t want folks to feel compelled to donate while reading the latest news.

If you do feel prompted to help, use this link – they take no cut, so all of your gift goes to pay down expenses.

Better yet, why not hire me to do something great for your organization?

I’m going to add a link to expenses here.
