Yet another week has gone by

Amazing how quickly time goes by these days – especially when I am not working – the days just blend one to the other and I have no idea if it is Sunday or any other day. I’ve lost all sense of time and that carries over to not knowing if it is 2 AM or PM sometimes.

I am now waiting for the next immunotherapy session at Sloan – Tuesday at noon.

Good news – I am making more progress, but still I suffer from too much fatigue everyday and still have mild nausea and headaches on an ongoing basis. But that is to be expected with the treatment, so not too concerned.

It’s amazing how many people have cancer. The waiting area at Sloan is packed with people waiting for tests and treatment. The waiting area has all kinds of people – young, old, black, white, Asian, religious Jews, Muslims, and who knows what else. Cancer is an equal opportunity disease.

Today is a lousy day – raining hard and has been since waking up this morning. It’s now coming down in a torrent.

In spite of the setback with Trump winning the election, the world still goes on and the globe still spins even if in less control. We WILL survive the Trump years!

A few more things to add:

  • I am getting to the gym almost daily – even if just for a short time and a light workout but even that helps a lot
  • I continue to be very forgetful – where I put things like my phone or keys or glasses and appointments, etc. Antonio helps to remind me and to help me find lost objects.
  • My belly is still a bit bloated with the drugs and I hope that soon changes- for now it’s good to have the extra energy to fight off the cancer.
  • I am walking much more and much better and doing PT and OT 3 times per week and all of that helps, too!

Not too much else to really report for now – so that’s the latest update until next week.

    Re. the election, this morning I liked getting Wordsmith's ...

    There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge." -Isaac Asimov, scientist and writer (1920-1992)

  3. Alan, so happy to read the immunotherapy is already showing some good results. We need to strategize over the next 4 years. I hope I can see you next time I'll be in town and have a beginning to this convo. Sending much love from my plane back to FL. I'll try to stay out of dangerous interactions with the many people that voted for DT down there.... Hugs xp

  4. Hi Alan, So glad to hear that you're feeling better and getting stronger. You and the country, will get through these challenges. Our love, blessings and prayers go out to you and for you, Jonathan and Ray
