Well what can be better than good counts? Everything and nothing when you are in my position:
White Blood Cells: 5.1
But what else???
Burning Man Tickets went on sale on January 18th at 2:00 PM PST. And yes I got mine.
Good things indeed.
Okay this is pretty wild…
Looks like I am going to go to Burning Man this year after all.
I feel as strong as I ever have right now. And I suspect that at the beginning of September I will still feel this way or better being that much further removed from the chemotherapy treatments.
I also found out that I will be taking ATRA for 15 days every three months. Thus I will be “light sensitive” only in those months. The way it falls out, I will not be light sensitive during Burning Man.
Believe me I will be extra cautious and limit my sun exposure time as much as possible. If things do not seem right, I will get out of there ASAP.
So, I got an extra ticket. Any friends of mine daring enough to go along???
If you know me or have been reading this blog, you know I was excited as I could be about attending Burning Man this year. Unfortunately, my recovery plan for leukemia is not going to accommodate going to Burning Man this year and perhaps not next year either.
A major part of my treatment is taking ATRA (Retin-A) for I believe the next two years. Sun exposure and Retin-A do not mix. Thus, a week of extreme desert camping is not in my best interest.
So, I now have two tickets I can sell. If interested contact me.
