WEEEEEEE! I won’t start chemo ’til tomorrow. The northeast is buried in snow, so I get a one day reprieve. I called my doc last night and suggested that maybe we delay a day, if that made no difference to him. He said, “it makes no difference at all.. in fact, I think it would be prudent.” I think he was probably imagining me taking one of my walks through the park to get home and decided he couldn’t be responsible for me being found in a snow bank somewhere.
The snow started yesterday morning, and went right through the night. We’ve definitely had worse here in the city, but this one is pretty good. All airports closed. Very little public transportation.. etc. A car goes by every five minutes or so, but mostly the street is for pedestrians today. One of my favorite sights! Watching people walk right down the middle of the street on their way to the subway.
I’m feeling a little frustrated by my physical state. Not allowed to shovel snow. Not allowed to throw studded tires on the getter and go get in trouble.. We DID however take the dogs to the park and let them get their ya yas out.
We had a nice xmas. Family, friends from vt and nyc, and a rather lean goose(?). I’ve encountered a new side effect, though. I’ve got canker sores inside my mouth that simple won’t go away. SUPER painful. I’m mostly fine as long as I don’t eat or talk. A good thing that I don’t like either activity very much. Hrumph.. It has put a bit of a damper on the last handful of days. Amazing how such a small thing can change your mood so drastically. I’d honestly rather be a little nauseous. HEY! By tomorrow afternoon I’ll get BOTH!
