First I had blood drawn. Then I had my vitals taken. Then I saw my oncologist. We discussed The Plan. Basically, I'm not changing any meds. I'm having 12 radiation treatments, followed by the Vidaza regimen.
After the doctor, I went to the radiation suite, changed into my backwards robe sized for a 200-lb. person, and waited my turn. When they called me in and started setting me up on the table, Billie Holiday sang softly in the background. Since the position I have to get into is fairly uncomfortable, it was nice to hear a familiar voice.
