The wait is finally over. After all of the prayers and good vibes, tomorrow begins the action. I had my catheter surgically inserted today and I get my first dose of chemo tomorrow.
Bobby Knight famously commented on putting one's game face on (for those of you who aren't familiar with hyper linking, you can click on text that you see higlighted in blue and underlined and it will take you to a link with more details...so you can click on the words "game face on" in the previous sentence and see what I mean about Bobby Knight). The part I'm referring to begins at the 2:42 mark of the clip. Unfortunately, lots of bad language in the link, but it's bleeped out.
What does a stem cell transplant have to do with Bobby Knight? I'm glad you asked. Today , I put my "game hair" on (see below). Jen is not thrilled with the new look, but I'm digging the low maintenance aspect.
To all my New England relatives...how 'bout that shirt? I'm looking forward to getting down to business tomorrow. Thanks again to all for your prayers and help. Together we will prevail.
