I am feeling much better today. Had somewhat of a rough night but today has been pretty good. I have been able to eat somethings and have not been exhausted all day. I made two trips to radiation today. After each trip, I spend some time walking. This morning I got in 10 minutes, this evening close to 20. It feels good to get moving again. Two more sessions tomorrow and one on Thursday. They have an iPod player so I made a "Radiation" playlist. Includes U2, Johny Cash, Janes Addiction, Kid Rock, Sons of Sylvia and Linkin Park.
I Skyped with Crystal and the kids last night. I also Skyped with my sister and Mom today. It was good to be able to see their faces...
Each bone marrow section of the hospital is broken up into pods. It is very strange. My section is a 3/4 circle. The nurses station in the middle with the rooms on the outside. Our rooms have no doors just curtains. From a remote in my bed I can operate the curtains, the blinds even the music. . (bawnggg chickee bawnggg bawngg)
I have no shower in my room, so I need to take sponge baths each day. I am the type of person that likes to take a 110 degree shower for 20 minutes. To be reduced to a quick sponge bath, it's going to takes it toll on me.
