I am on the 5th floor of the Rockefeller Outpatient Pavilion. It is raining. I am glad it is raining. This way, I don't feel bad that I can't go for a walk on 5th Ave.
The waiting room is packed. It is a good sign, I think. It is a sign that we are surviving. Or is it a sign that too many of us have cancer?
I just did a CT scan and now I am waiting to see the doctor and sign the protocol. I must tell you that I behaved and I drank all, well almost all, the contrast bottle they gave me. I drank something called Raspberry Ice Crystal. It tasted better than the Berry Smoothie.
The wait seems to be long for everyone. I hear some patients complaining that they have been waiting for two hours. Today must be one of those crazy days. But can you believe that there are computers with internet access for patients in every (except the 8th) floor? Not bad.
