Will I Turn Evil?
I've caught some grief over my life because I share a name with Jason, the hockey-mask wearing killer of hormone-fueled teenagers. The Friday the 13th movies were a highlight of my Cinemax-fueled young adulthood. If you look at my treatment calendar at the right of the blog page, you'll see that my once-faint connection to this coed cadaver-maker is about to grow stronger. In transplant talk, "Day 0" is the day that stem cells are inserted to begin the process of re-generating the immune system that has been wiped out by high-dose chemotherapy. Day 0 is often called a patient's new birthday. That means my new birthday is Friday May 13th. I am now Jason, "born" on Friday the 13th. I'll be adding a machete to my pool equipment in case I need to hack to bloody pieces any frolicking teenagers who have sneaked into my pool to skinny dip.
