Today was a beautiful - albeit cloudy bright day. Still no view of Mt Hood from my fabulous aerie .. but I remain hopeful.
Many visitors today, which was nice because my energy remains very good. Brother Eric was here bright and early; he was here when Dr Chen and Bryon "made rounds" which was good to introduce them. I then spent about 30 minutes doing sprints on the great training bike they have perched looking out DIRECTLY at my office building at Metro across the river (Hi friends!)
That was followed by Julie and a thermos of Americano's! We got to walk outside a bit in the sculpture garden around the top of the Tram again. Then, after my chemotherapy, I had a visit from work colleagues; then a MASSAGE from a lovely volunteer woman who comes on Thursdays, followed by a nice long catch-up/work visit with a graduate student and colleague, Vivian Siu. Then Julie came back for dinner and we watched Jon Stewart videos and a Big Love episode.
Now it is time for trazadone time! I get my vital signs taken at midnight AND at 4AM, so night is kind of a relative concept here in hospital land.
Sleep tight friends. Thanks again for all the comments of love and support! Keeps me going positive....on the bright side of this road.
