Steve is in his comfy recliner and trying to nap. His blood has been drawn, and we're waiting for good counts so the CPT-11 and Avastin can begin.
This week, on the advice of my friend Dave Wilson, I started using Twitter. (It's a social messaging application, sort of like blogging in little spurts. Or Tweets.)
A few minutes ago, I posted via Twitter that we "are in infusion room 3, ready for another day of cancer-killing drugs."
A few minutes later, I received an e-mail that Livestrong (the Lance Armstrong Foundation) is following me on Twitter (I'm guessing that a search engine notifies someone at Livestrong when someone posts a cancer-related Tweet).
Livestrong posted in reply: "Good luck to steve today from the Lance Armstrong Foundation!"
So awesome! And just a little eery. Our world seems to get a little smaller every day, partly because of technology that still mystifies me.
