Coin flip city. All the way home I was at peace with doing it. My wife wasn't. I visited with a cancer survivor friend at work who said, "Don't do it." My parents are no help. If the side effects make it so I can't play trumpet, it ain't worth it. If not doing it means more surgery, I'd rather die.

On the bright side I got around some Princess Chicken at a Chinese buffet today. Real food is coming back. And hey, EV, you might be interested to know that the BM's are starting to happen. Most have some shape, and some actually float.
