Back in the A.5.S.R.
Back In The A5S Room Oh Let Me Tell You Honey Hey I'm Back! I'm Back in the A.5.S.R Yes, I'm Free! Yeah, Back in the A.5.S.R HA HA! We do know how lucky we are to have made it over the hump in the ICU and back to the oncology floor. Lucky in the sense that we got out of the fire and into the frying pan in some ways. A5S is much more relaxed were they can be, remember the cultural differences between units I mentioned earlier. Yesterday, Brian "The Music Man", came to our room in the ICU and played some great tunes. This is a service that Becca really loves, even if she is sometimes stoic about it. Brian and a couple of other great folks actually get paid to go room to room and sit down and jam with the kids. Often it is just Brian and his guitar strumming out some relaxing vibes other times he breaks out a few instruments for the kids to bang shake or rattle along with him. Poor guy has been given homework to brush up on his ABBA so he can play Dancing Queen. I wonder what he will think of my Beatles spoof? Becca had a mildly crumby day yesterday with regards to her response to chemo; fortunatly the next few days feature much lighter chemo, so she should be much more active and playful. I see some games of war in my future (she cheats btw), no old maid, she refuses to play anymore due to anxiety about getting stuck with the "old maid". That girl hates to lose, if only cancer were a card game. EK
