Bleo Six

Friday was my sixth bleomycin injection in my tongue and I'm thinking it will be my last. It was a strange day as Angela had some unpleasant news for me on the way home from the hospital. As I was going under anaesthetic someone else had slipped away. The rest of the day was spent recovering in the weird in-between state of wakefulness and sleep.

Now, two days later, a white blister has formed under my tongue. You could almost set your watch by it. 48 hours after the initial injection the swelling and discolouration appear.

A week of soup awaits me.
