‘Twas the Night Before Chemo

Sitting here, the night before I get re-admitted, I have to admit that I can’t really decide how I feel. Certainly not like Christmas Eve.

I’ve relaxed, read books, hung out with friends, eaten good food, played games, and watched TV.

I kind of feel like I should have done…more? Maybe? But to be perfectly honest, I didn’t really feel up for doing much more than I did. Physically, I feel just off. It’s weird to go from training for a triathlon, then spend a month where the most you can do is walk around your hospital floor.


I guess I can say that I have some goals for this next treatment. There’s a picture that I want to get of blown out windows (blown out as in exposure, not as in destroyed),¬†silhouetting¬†me and my drug pole. Thinking of calling it “My Buddy”.

I’ll be walking around, and I’d like to finish 2 books that my friend Dennis gave me.


I just…want to be done already, haha.


I don’t have any big thoughts or lessons really. Just feeling pretty blegh about this whole cancer thing, I guess.


  1. Hi Tony. Best of luck with the chemo. They have so many drugs for the side affects. The worst I felt was two days of a bad hangover. I know what you mean by blegh, although on today’s blog post, I think I spelled it Bleh. The “g” provides a more gagging feeling though,, which is totally appropriate.

    1. Thanks Emily :) Yeah, the last round wasn’t so bad. This one is a high dose of cytarabine though, so probably going to be less pleasant overall. Ah well, might as well get it done now, I’d say.
