Journal entry by Mark Mincer

Not much new to report. 449 days since I went to the ER in October 2020 (almost fifteen months).

I had infusion #8 yesterday.
Nurse that put IV in was SUPER grumpy and unfriendly.
Nurse that put in infusion was BEST I HAVE HAD yet. Very, very cheerful and friendly. You could tell she was smiling, even with her MASK on. Hope to see her again.

So far in January, I have only walked FIVE times. And I had to cancel TWENTY-FIVE walks, mostly because of snow/cold/weather, occasionally because of fatigue. So if you think it is because of YOU, it is not. So far 83% of January walks have been canceled.

Somebody found a picture of our first grade class and sent it to me. I think (?) I am bottom left.
Other two photos are me at the Infusion Center.

Hope to see many of you, when the weather improves.
