OK… strange IT problem to start the day. Phone and iPad are fine, but MacBook and the WiFi aren’t playing well together. So weird because last night laptop was great. In fact, I was FaceTime’ing with my mom for over an hour watching Phillies/Mets and then the end of Giants/Braves — no issues at all.
Today, the behavior is: if the lappie is connected to WiFi everything is 100x slower than it should be… like internet apps take 2 minutes to launch. If WiFi is off, apps launch in seconds. Pinging the router with Terminal app just shows 100% packet loss. Hard reboot and even OPT-CMD-P-R reboot didn’t solve. Could they be blocking my machine based on bandwidth used last night? Feels like a lower-level problem. Hopefully we can figure this out before Monday or work is going to be a major problem. IT ticket submitted. Otherwise @Benji, gonna need your help. :)
It was nice to “hang with” my mom and watch the game. I even got some “pub style” food for dinner: a really good turkey burger with fries. Might as well enjoy it while I still have my taste buds, right? So far, the food is *much* better than it was 10-11 years ago.
There’s a Chrome Book touch screen thingie for food ordering and other random stuff too. UI looks like this:
Boom chicka bow bow!
Anyway, on to the real stuff. I was admitted at about 3:30p yesterday and almost immediately got my PICC line put in. This lets them draw blood or give me IV drugs whenever they want.
I also got some kind of a heart ultra-sound which went fine. They just need to check the ticker before starting me on the poison. No pics of that.
Next steps for today:
- Platelet transfusion
- Blood transfusion
- Chemo begins
I will kick its ass.
