A special discovery.

So...I changed my sheets before I went in for chemo last Thursday.  Brand new white pillowcases, etc.  I went in for my treatment, which, if you remember, involves a chemo drug called The Red Dragon.  You pee red for about 24 hours.  Ain't no thang...

The  morning after chemo, when I woke up, I found these pinkish areas on my pillowcase:
It's kind of hard to see; I should have used my good camera to show you.  The pink marks hadn't been there before.  As I studied them, I realized that they were right where my head and neck hit the pillow when I sleep.

It was then that I realized that The Red Dragon seeps out of your pores when you sweat.  My mom concurs with my extremely scientific assessment.

It's really creepy.

The other night, I was lying on my side, in bed, of course, because that is all I do the week after chemo, and I had some weird nerve twitches there, on the side of my rib cage.  I hate twitches that aren't caused by my own movement - they freak me out.  Especially since my mom and I (against our better judgment) watched that show called Monsters Inside of Me.  Have you SEEN that show??? Eeeeek!  I think it's fascinating.  I think it seriously frightened my mom.

Anyways, the one we saw was on this gal who got Ratworm while she was in Fiji.  She ate a slug because she was hungry.  Yuck.  And that's how she got ratworm.  So of course, the show has these animated renderings of ratworms swimming around in her body, wreaking all kinds of havoc (that's the part my mom really freaked out about).  And the gal was saying that she could see them kind of crawling around under her skin.

So when I got my weird twinges by my ribcage, I thought to myself, "I wonder if that's what it feels like to have ratworm.  Or ringworm."  I wasn't worried about it - I knew that it was just nerve stuff. My nerves have been freaking out ever since I started this chemo - it's just...par for the course for me.

But I did tell Mom when I woke up the next morning - about how I felt these weird twinges and how I wondered if that's what ratworm or ringworm feels like.  And she said, "Well, one thing we know for sure.  If you had it, chemo would have kicked the worms' BUTTS.  They couldn't live through it."

It's true.  They would be DEAD.  Chemo is a butt-kicker.  To anything alive.
