That's how long Mike's chemo treatment will take Tuesday. We got a tour of the room and it doesn't look like a fun place. It's cramped, crowded and cold. There are about 15 recliners in a U-shape, and on the day we were there they were filled with old people. Old sick people. It was heartbreaking, and it didn't seem like Mike would fit in there...
So we're trying to figure out some things that will make the place more bearable and help the time fly by. We've got some books and magazines packed and we're allowed to take snacks.
But I've been thinking about downloading some cancer-kicking music on my iPhone. Something really aggressive and angry. So far we've got Machine Head by Bush, Kashmir by Led Zeppelin, Remedy by Black Crowes and Keep Yourself Alive by Queen.
I'm taking suggestions.
We'll probably take the portable DVD player so we can watch a movie. Hey, we never get to do that anymore now that we have a little one in the house.
We're looking forward to our weekend -- it's Mike's birthday. He's 52 (but don't tell anyone). We've got a shuttle launch, Marina is coming in and we're going to get to see Lisa and Madison for a bit on Sunday.
So everyone have a good couple of days and I'll write on Tuesday to let you know how things went.
