[cancer] NIH Day 10

Getting overwhelmed fast here. Yesterday was busy and spoon-burning both. An hour of deep science talk with Dr. Tranh about how the genetic selection of my TIL cells was done, and why, was sort of like a Masters degree in a bottle. I will report that when I can. (Notes were taken.) A 75-minute EMDR session to deal with my aggressive emergent food aversion gifted unto me by the cyclophosphamide. Likewise to be described. The massage therapist turning up. And the intensity of treatment dialing up sharply last night, half a day ahead of what I had expected.

Oddly, I got a good nights sleep.

The dance begins in earnest at noon today, with the TIL cell infusion. I do not expect to be able to blog or function on social media effectively after today for a while. I will either be silent, or possibly have Lisa make posts if need be. Expect erratic posting until further notice.

Overwhelming.
