Time

It's time again. Time for another transfusion. It's planned for Monday afternoon at 4pm. Another two units of whole blood.

My steroid taper has begun. They're trying to wean me of the thing I love/hate the most. I relish the change. I fear the change.

On top of it all, I'm headed for Dallas next Tuesday. I'll be there for 6 nights and I have to maintain my chemical balance throughout. Hauling luggage will be so much fun. Drugs, hydration, Foscarnet, pumps, supplies, etc.

On the personal front, Ed and I spent some time in Vancouver. Today was beautiful and we took a little trip 'round town. Ed suggested we visit a motorcycle museum. I took lots of pics, Ed learned a few things and says he actually enjoyed it. The theme of the display? "End of Empire" - an exemplary display of British motorcycles with a bit of a comparison to some early Hondas.

Paradoxically, it was shown in the exhibits area of a Harley Davidson dealership.

Ok, this is weird.
I was going comment on how prophetic this was and the pass word verification seemed to think so too. I screen captured it & will email to you.
Did you have anything to do with this?

Andre,
I was helping my girlfriend put together a powerpoint for MM (she's in nursing school) when I stumbled across your blog. I've been captivated for the past two hours. Thank you so much for sharing and being so honest and open.
Cheers mate and best of luck!
