Ho hum. Another mostly uneventful shot down, and I'm 7/8 of the way through treatment... six shots left. I just want it to be over. Not because it's going badly, but because I'm BORED!
Oddly, it does seem like the side effects seem to have picked up a bit here, as I approach the end: I think my energy is a bit lower, and I've been prone to evening headaches, particularly on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, for about the last three or four weeks. They're not the blinding migraines that other bloggers have described (thankfully!), but I don't normally get headaches... period. Also, my sleep schedule is all turned around, and stays so despite my efforts to straighten it out. Admittedly, I've always been a nighthawk, so maybe it's nothing. Lastly, still battling the dry skin/psoriasis on my face, and the cracks at the edges of my mouth have gotten to the mild annoyance stage.
Far be it from me to complain! I've still had it better than a lot of people on this course of treatment. The fact remains... I'm ready for it to be over.
On a totally non-related note, the Bears knocked the Seahawks out of the playoffs today. I've got to give it to Seattle: they finally started stepping up and looked like they actually belonged in the playoffs. But between a few critical mistakes (Matt, your left hand seems to be in worse shape than you're letting on!) and the fact that the Bears just played a tighter game... Chicago deserved the win. Oddly, I'm a little relieved... now I don't have a stake in the championship games or the Superbowl, although if pressed, I'd like to see the Saints take it. It'll probably be San Diego, though.
UPDATE: Well, so much for my Football prognostications... the Pats just took down the Chargers. Good on New England! Should be a good battle with the Colts for the AFC title.
Oh, and on the subject of sports: WTF?!!! Beckham coming across the pond to play for a relatively unknown team in a sport Americans don't properly appreciate. What is this world coming to?
