Gettin' the Lemonade

They started the Chemo today. It's yellow so I'll call it the "Lemonade". Last time it was red so that will be the "Coolade". This will go for about 24 hours, then they start another Chemo drug. The spinal tap this morning sure was a lot of fun. It really wasn't that painful, but just the thought of what what they were doing caused me to be very tense. Toshiko was a big help hold just being there and holding my hand. She said the two nurses in the room both had to turn away when the Dr. inserted the big needle. Now, it's just kinda sit and wait and eat hospital food - mmmm, hospital food! It's actually pretty good.
