Suffice it to say that the Ottawa Hospital’s Medical Daycare is not as fun as Daddy Daycare or any other daycare environment I’ve seen. No fun, no games, all serious.
That’s not entirely true… the nurses are all incredible people with a very keen sense of humour and more compassion and empathy than one could imagine. They make a stay in a place like this bearable, and dare I say it, almost enjoyable.
Why was I here? Today was Day 1 of Round 1 of chemotherapy to treat the Small Lymphatic Lymphoma I was diagnosed with about a month ago. Apart from feeling very tired and a little woozy, so far so good.
Oh yeah: Fuck cancer!!
