Coming Up On a Little Turbulance

This is your captain speaking.

If you noticed, I turned on the seatbelt light. Please return to your seats and put your seatbelts on. I'll be sending the flight attendants around to make sure those are done up properly and to collect any trash you'd like to get rid of at this time. Please also put your tray tables and seat backs into their full upright positions. We're coming up on a little bit of turbulence.

Normally we would route around the chemo thermals by scheduling them for Fridays, and the worst days of recovery would be a weekend where no one is expecting much of the blog anyway; however, white blood cell counts on Friday caused a shift in the projected thermal layers. So we're heading into them on a Monday, and they may very well screw up the entire week since not only will the chemo itself be on Monday, but the heavy, rough recovery days will be Tuesday and Wednesday.

We've got some great maneuvers planned; let's see how many of them we can actually execute.
