So has it really come to this? Has life returned so closely to normal (no!) that I can honestly go an entire month without posting?
While it is certainly true, from a macroscopic level, that "no news is good news," and while my Doctor used words like "terrific" to describe how I'm doing, there continues to be plenty of challenges with my recovery. I just have so little time to do anything other than work, work, work, family, family, and sleep. Oh and watch the occasional season-ending football game. Way to go, Beagles.
So this update will be short:
- my counts are good
- going back down to 0.4mg Tac
- clinic visits down to one every three weeks
- still as fatigued as I was 3 months ago, but somehow working the Salesforce pace
By the way, I am hiring. Here's what I posted on LinkedIn:
Salesforce.com CCE is hiring in San Francisco and Dublin. Our team is growing as fast as it is brilliant. Come join the hottest team in the entire R&D Organization. Contact me for details. San Francisco link: http://lnkd.in/3XBFna Dublin link:http://lnkd.in/sQ8nqJ
Anyway, back to the update:
- still need 8.5 hours of sleep (minimum) to function
- neuropathy (in hands and feet, worst in feet) still a major PITA
- various muscle pain/strain on the lightest of activities
- family is great
But all this means squat compared to the sh*t that some of my friends are going through. Patrick, Abigail, Gilly, I think about you guys every day. I know you're going to fight your way through this.
If anyone reading has a few extra prayers to spare, please think of may PAG gang. They need your positive thoughts more than I do right now.
Happy Thanksgiving to all. Remember how good we have it. Every day is a gift. Except maybe for Andy Reid. For him, every day is a cheeseburger. :)
