237/365 : Bang a gong

The Ottawa Hospital’s MDCU (Medical Day-Care Unit) has a fun tradition for its patients just completing their last treatment: banging a gong.

After administering today’s final rituximab injection, my wonderful nurse Charissa invited me over to bang the gong. I was a little worried about making too much of a ruckus (there were some patients snoozing away in the ward out of view) but it turns out that it’s quite a discreet gong and isn’t very loud.

That didn’t make it any less satisfying.
