Revlamid, Steroids, Late Nights and New Toys

I started my second round of Revlimid today, or rather on Friday. The Docs have mentioned several more rounds of it, and I'm not sure what they mean, I hope they don't mean what I'm afraid they mean, pushing the transplant into late this year. I really want to get this done, for my sake, yes, but also for my donor sister. I don't want her to miss work if she does not have to. Ah well, all we can do is wait. Along with the Revlimid come the steroids, so little sleep tonight. That's why I'm posting this at nearly 2:00 AM EDT. I'm up late but I do have a new toy to play with. My wife and I bought the reduced price iPhone today, uh, Friday. No I didn't need it, and in different circumstances I probably would not have bought it. Not to get morbid, I simply decided that I wasn't to going to pass on any new experiences. If I have a chance to go somewhere I either want to see again or have not seen, I'm going. If there are friends I can see and enjoy time with, I will. If there is a meal I really want to try, I will. If there's something I want and it is reasonably possible, I will get it. I really can't be sure if I will get the chance again, so if God blesses me with the opportunity, I'm taking it. Selfish, maybe a little, but trust me I won't get silly, at least not to silly.
