It went pretty smoothly this week. I’m feeling good, relatively. I got unplugged yesterday morning. The weather has been warm here in NYC for the last handful of days, which is great for the whole cold sensitive neuropathy thing. I can actually go outside!! Great. I took a trip to the supermarket yesterday on the xtracycle and made a big haul. Collapsed when I got home. HA. Not quite myself. Still, to be able to go to the store at all on a chemo day! I win!
My white cells are pretty low. The doc has requested that I take every precaution for the next few days.. through the weekend. He’ll have me taking antibiotics over the weekend just to protect against possible infection. But then I’ll be in the clear. Hopefully get a good week of work in.
The current project is a fun one. A dutch inspired town bike.. relaxed angles, all stainless lugs.. a chainguard.. a rear rack with leather panniers.. a flashlight mount in the front. Quite a lot more work than a standard single speed, but fun. I’ve got three bikes at the painters at the moment. All of them with builds waiting in the bike room. So over the next few weeks, I should get the pleasure of seeing a bunch of projects through. There will be pictures.
Mckenny Welding Supply will be dropping off a big tank of argon this morning.. So I can squeeze in a little TIG welding practice. Good.
