ESHAP Regimen
Cycle 2
Infusion Day 2 of 5

Here we go, over the falls, into the lake of ick.  The Worm (my gi tract) and I lose harmony for a while.  Any upset, too hot, too cold, hungry, overfull, The Worm makes me pay with gags and fits and tears.  I try not to blame it, I know it’s only being frightened.  I talk it down.  “Easy, there boy.”  And, “hold on, I’ll get you a snack.”   I pet it, albeit on the outside of my abdomen.  Give it a cookie.

Four hours can go several ways.  National Geographic Magazine.  Blogging.  I can unplug my pump from the wall socket and go sit in the library, perhaps to share a meal with Judy if a Tuesday.  Today I copied favorite messages off my phone into the laptop.  Some are many months old.  One’s more than a year.  And I sent a bunch of text’s back.  People probably don’t realize what a long delayed reply it is.  I appreciate the positive messages and I always hope my ‘payback’ arrives at an opportune moment.

Today, it did. My love and a well wish arrived minutes after a breakup.   I appear divine.  Yeah, I’m glad to be that pipe from divine to flesh.

Tomorrow I might sleep.  I might convert dreams and inventions to text.  To scheme of things for better days.
