Greg, How Are You?

So, what are you doing?

Drugs.

Come now, don’t be silly.  Tell us what you really do.

Drugs.

Nurses are pushing them on me or I’m begging for them.  Adjust your creatine, adjust your magnesium!  Step right up, prevent graft vs host disease.  Pain relievers.  Get your nausea suppressors!  Vitamins.  Fever suppresion.  Protect the liver.  Deliver lipids.  Accelerate cell production.  Ward off rashes!

When the drugs are working I’m so full of thankfulness and when they’re not I am laid out flat or curled up fetal.  Or wretching.  Or having the shakes so hard I fear for my teeth. I spend hours just holding still because moving or talking may bring on a fit of nausea.  Go to my happy places.  Meditate.

It’s day +9 and they still don’t know why I’ve had this fever for three days.  Fever symptions are nearly as bad as nausea but it makes me stupit.  I know the temp is down a bit now because I’m writing!  Also, don’t have icebags in my armpits and I’m not trying the sweat off my skull.]

Thanks for all the love, peoples.  Some is here in these comments and some by mail, all good.  Thank you.

    Hi Greg. Just want you to know I’m thinking about you. Ice packs in your armpits, sweat on your skull, wretching… it all sounds awful. Hang on.
    Huge love from me and Dan.

    The brain is forgets pain, merciful. Keep up the good work.

    It must take so much energy to write. I appreciate it that you do. Thinking of you always.
