I took another step toward normal today when I dropped Chris off at the airport. Of course I couldn't go in with him, but I felt well enough to drive there and back which is a small victory. I won't say where Chris flew off to, but will say that it was for a job interview. He comes back tomorrow night and I know he'll be exhausted with all of the flying and driving that he'll have to pack into two days.
While he's away, I've promised to stay out of trouble. No running with scissors or licking door knobs for fun. This is the longest that we've been away from each other since this entire cancer saga began and I know it's hard for him not to be able to "see" that I'm well. I'll do my level best not to instigate an internal coup against my graft while he's gone. I'm staying hydrated and taking my temperature at intervals. I've done all that I plan on doing of significance today, so he can rest assured that I'll be taking it easy. He's left me in good hands with Dixie. She's already checked in. Pez and Etsuko are keeping me company while studiously pretending the other doesn't exist.
Just another lazy day around the Gregory household.
As an aside, can you believe how puffy the steroids have made my face?
