Well I finally got to see Mt Hood from my little nest up here at the top 'o the hill. The afternoon opened up and there she is! Lots of snow finally to show off in the afternoon light.
Friends and Neighbors and co-workers came by today, along with Julie - twice! - actually. Also met two MORE members of my team - my Physical Therapist, Lauren, and the Departure coordinator, Peggy.
I've been feeling good and started out my day doing 20 minutes on the bike - trying to follow one of the computerized training settings.... but I'm much better as just an improvisational rider. Good workout though.
My symptoms are starting to creep in on me - I'm pretty drowsy a lot, and my throat and mouth are starting to "feel weird", but, really I'm weathering this just fine so far. The big creepy chemo comes on Sunday where I have to pre chill my mouth and throat with - wait for it - POPSICLES!
I've tasked Julie with finding me some tasty, high end sorbets to start, and finish with a nice hazelnut gelato - don't you think?
I did set up a "Gallery" page today that is linked to the blog (look on the right for "OHSU Art". You can take a look at it to see all the beautiful, inspiring artwork that is everywhere in this institution. Lovely and uplifting stuff. And nice to know that there is at least ONE full time employed Art History major in town!
Cheers everyone, and have a happy weekend!
