To my regular readers who know about my health plight, I start take my first Bendamustine and Rituximab IV cocktail today followed by another one tomorrow. It is true that chemo drugs are poison on a good day, but they are a needed medicine at this point. The case can be made that all medications are poison when taken in certain quantities. Even Tylenol can be considered poison, as it is not a naturally occurring substance in the body.
The way I am looking at it is, my quest to get better begins today. More than anything, I must endure the boredom of sitting in a cancer center for the biggest part of the day, while I am infused with these two chemicals that will stop my body from making too many lymphocytes. So, if you think about it at some point today, mutter a couple of words to the Big Man Upstairs in my behalf and think about me while I sit around and read the Federalist Papers for entertainment.
