Well, today was a good day. For one thing, between the pre-chemo doses of Benadryl and hydrocortisone, plus changing to Etopophos (Etoposide, but different manufacturer), Little Warrior had no allergic reaction. Since the doctors this morning casually mentioned, "...and we might, then, need to move her to ICU ..." I am feeling much relieved.
While I was nervously eyeing LW for bumps, bites, hives, and anaphylactic shock, I had a most welcome distraction -- a visit from a real, live, Unitarian Universalist minister!
I'd heard that they existed, and even imagined meeting one, one time, myself, in Albuquerque. But looking back, it has taken on a dream-like quality. I chalked that up to eating too much green chile at lunch.
Well, I won't name names, but he was funny, kind, and generous with his thoughts and time. Funny -- a bit hysteric, some would say. Such a nice cleric.
We are in agreement about several things, including the fact that Philocrites is the Kevin Bacon of the UU set. No UU is ever more than 7 degrees away from him at any time.
In addition to being a cool guy, Rev. Visitor gave me a peek into the nurturing community that UU ministers create to support each other. It makes me feel good about the group I wish to someday join forces with.
Is that a little too Jedi?
