Second infusion of the third cycle today. Given steroids by mouth for 14 days and oral infusion of more steroids today. Supposed to serve as an antidote for allergic reactions to one of the chemo drugs. Cancer also doesn’t like these steroids. Moreover, they are also prescribed to keep your weight up. Downside: it is hard to sleep, and tonight at a little past 3:00 AM I am blogging. And that reminded me . . .
It is fall in Australia. We received photos of our Australian crew today. I don’t know why but I worry incessantly about our kids and their kids. I guess that is what parents and grandparents are supposed do. Anyway, and, right now, late at night, I feel so far away from them. I ought to go to bed, but I won’t sleep.
