Sporting his new Superman mask, Danny heads into chemotherapy alone. This is number 39. His platelets are low again. But his white blood cell count was high enough so they went ahead as he is going to be taking a break now.

I’m hoping this weeks chemo goes better since he will be taking a few days at home afterward. Last chemo he did not and it was the worst I have even seen him. He was sick and miserable and writhing in pain. I understand the theory, behind the work. The days after chemo are his strongest for resisting the Coronavirus. But if he works hard those days, the chemo poisons him even more. He says it’s like walking a tightrope and he’s just trying not to fall off.
