An Easy Day

Yesterday’s recap: 11 hours worth of testing on 1 hour of sleep. Made it, though, and the cardiologist said my heart is in perfect condition ????.

Today should be an easy day. It didn’t start until 11:30 am, so I caught up on sleep last night after Judy (my Mom) and I walked a few blocks to a grocery store and bought a couple of steaks, which we fried up for a nice but quick dinner.

Tomorrow, I have my first round of chemotherapy. I’ll explain more about that later.

Judy and I went to the grocery store today to stock up on living necessities.

By the way, I found out the hard way that HBO Now, STARZ and Showtime on-demand don’t work in Mexico. I did find a ten dollar per month service that tricks your device into having a USA IP address by using a VPN tunnel, though, and it seems to work fine.
