My co-workers will really enjoy this one. The rest of you - could be a yawner...
Last night I had a very powerful dream that my tumors were being packaged up as a bunch of XML fragments within a GNU compressed tar ball. My chemo manifested itself as a software publishing pipeline and it was very important to me that all the tumors get named correctly so that the publishing pipeline would be able to collect them all in the tarball and then publish them (i.e push them out of my body). I even woke up in the middle of the dream and was going to explicitly name each tumor so that it would get into the tarball archive correctly. For some reason, the naming process was one and done and I was really worried that if I didn't name the XML fragments/tumors correctly that the publishing process wouldn't find them and they wouldn't get published.
So this is an example of when your professional life intrudes WAY TOO MUCH into your dream symbolism. Sigh - what can I say. 20 years of thinking about document architectures is going to leave a mark, I guess.
On the chemo front, today has been a pretty reasonable day health wise. I felt better last night than I did 2 Mondays ago and had a better sleep (modulo weird dreams). Today my GI tract has been acting a little funky but nothing too uncomfortable. I got out for a 2 mile walk this morning and this evening I did 30 minutes on an indoor treadmill (the weather here was in the low 40s and windy so I didn't want to venture outside for a run). I've consistently found that being active really helps ameliorate chemo symptoms so although it's been a bit of a challenge to get going on the days right after the chemo I feel better when I do it so hopefully this trend will continue.
