Back From The Battleground Victorious

So today was the checkup with the myeloma specialist at NEMC.

I was completely overwrought.

I forgot my list, my graphs, my anecdotal evidence.

I didn't have beakfast or vitamins or tea or water.

I was late and had a headache.

But I was still ready to do battle. I was going to put my foot down and demand another delay of treatment. I was going to win. I have things to do!

Before I could even start making my case, he said "I'm fine with delaying as long as you are being closely monitored by the local oncologist vis-a-vis kidney function."

I had won before I had even unsheathed my weapon.

The next three months are mine.

I will be going to the Milblog.....as a matter of fact.....I'm speaking.
