The next chapter

After 269 days, nearly 9 months, I will work my first full day tomorrow. I decided to count up some things that have happened in this relatively short period of time.

  • 4 rounds of chemotherapy
  • 100+ days of hospitalization
  • 1 visit to the ICU
  • 3 seasons viewed for the 7th floor (winter, spring, summer)
  • 50mg of Benedryl around the clock
  • ~30 red blood cell transfusions
  • Countless platelet transfusions
