Just got word that my counts hit the magic number today so chemo will commence! That\’s okay, I\’m glad it wasn\’t delayed any longer because I don\’t want my Thanksgiving break plans messed with. I haven\’t mentioned it yet buuut the family (+ godmommy and Nunc) are going to France in a couple weeks! We\’re going to Paris and Lourdes for some healing action for Lauren. Of course, the only French I know comes from Eddie routines and as he has pointed out, knowing how to say \”the monkey is on the branch\” is not particularly useful when you\’re actually in France. Maybe I can practice my Italian on them, though. Anyway, that is the plan, so let\’s hope my bone marrow does not screw it up!
I was just going over the notes I typed in history yesterday (to make sure they\’re semi-coherent despite my lack of consciousness for much of class) and at one point I was trying to say that slavery was becoming more controversial in the wake of the American Revolution and instead I typed wake up. Hmm, little subliminal message to myself there? At least my brain is staying on top of things!
P.S. France or no France, Maureen and I are running away together to Egypt because I bet riding a camel would be fun.
