Its not spaceshotitis...

Its chemo brain. Chemo brain is a proven side effect of chemo. Here is a poem about it:

Chemo Brain
by Richard Harvey

The things I do
In anticipation of
The things that I will do
But I don't end up doing
Because the things I am doing derail
My train of thought
From the direction it was headed
To the direction it went
Where I found me
Looking for the things
That I was doing
When I was preparing to do
What I wanted to do
Before I forgot
What I was doing
When I went to do
What I needed to do
When I found the things I was doing
Brought me around to
The things that I was doing
I remembered I forgot
The thing that I was doing......

Now, if anyone else out there feels that they have a similar problem, please let me know.

Anyhow, I did call Lahey yesterday, the oncologists office directly and asked what time I need to be there - 10am. Not 10:15, 10:30, 10:45, or 11 as their calls and letters had said, but 10am. We will be there at 10. They are so confusing...
