Well, what a way to start the day yesterday!
I was headed out front to wait for my ride (to chemo)
There are 2 houses on this lot, we are in the rear house.
So to get to the street you have to exit our gate, then walk up the nieghbors driveway. I got to the end of the driveway, to the sidewalk and bam! Down I went. I hate that driveway! It is unpaved and unlevel and just tretcherous as hell. Not to mention all the crap and mud from the recent rains. ugh!
Plus I can't 'wall walk' using the fence as support because they have all these potted plants along the fence.
Shit happens, I'm fine but I ripped the knee of my favorite jeans!
The day before this, I was out mowing our backyard....so whats my point?
I don't know....I guess you just never know what the day will bring!
The chemo itself was uneventful.
As any NF2'er can tell you, 'uneventful' is a good thing. ;-)
March is going to be a busy month.
My next chemo treatment is next thursday, 3/6/08.
Then the following day I will have a brain MRI,
discuss the results with Dr Slattery,
and then see Steve Otto for my ABI tune up.
This will all be up at HEI in Los Angeles.
We will have to hit the road early, and it will be a long, full day.
My last appt that day (with Otto) is at 3:30, so we should be back on the road heading home just in time for L.A. rush hour. Groaaan.
Then 3/13/08 more chemo and a consult with Dr. Zu.
Then on 3/19/08 I'm going for outpatient eye surgery.
They are going to put a gold weight in my left eyelid, as it doesn't close all the way.
I already have one in my right eyelid (2004) I have been happy with it, and its just time to do the other eye.
Moving on up
