On a general health update, I'm actually feeling very good. Mind you, that's partially because of 4 mg of steroids plus 2 Ritalin. But they do seem to do the trick. It also seems that the new FDA chemo that I've been on for the last 6 weeks is slightly shrinking my liver, which is giving me some physical relief. Since this is a brand new medicine, who knows what it might do. It's nice to add a little uncertainty back into the story.
My daughters have given me a wonderful gift, and have organized their lives so that they can stay with me until I die. This really brings tremendous joy. I'm at peace with the situation and will just take things as they come. I asked the doctors what it is likely to be like at the very end, and they said I would just gradually be sleeping more and more of the day and eventually drift off into a sleep from which I don't wake up.
