i received word i will have to have my spleen removed because i have a condition known as thrombocytopenia. most likely (like a 99.9%) positively caused by my chemotherapy regimen, on and off, on and off, for the past 5 years. at least i can live without a spleen easily enough. i just don't like having surgery. not scheduled yet. being holiday weekend and all that. ick.
in natick, ma, there is a major street named "speen street". i could find no reason why it was named speen. not a family name, not the name of some company... i kinda figured the sign printers kept leaving the "L" out. oh well.
currently on carmustine and vinblastine for chemo drugs anyhow. for those of you who give a damn. yawn. goodnight. good day.
