I leave for Boston in a few hours, my room is already there for me. No waiting, you know, except for all the rest of the waiting 🙂
So I’m going in, not quite as dramatic as jumping off of the Victoria Falls Bridge (see photo above of me, Summer 2012).
I’m ready. I’ve eaten my way through the past few days, all things I won’t be able to have for the next 50 days (or more) and things I think I might miss (or just felt like having). This has included:
- 2 lbs of fresh raspberries
- McDonald’s cheeseburger and fries
- Fresh figs
- Salads, lots of salads, middle eastern salads, shaved brussel sprouts over a risotto cake, arugula and beets, etc.
- Dr. Mike’s hot fudge sundae
My clothes and entertainment items are packed in plastic bags (requirement). No toiletries, jewelry or wallets allowed.
And I won’t be outside for 18 days. Weird.
Here’s hoping I’m bored. As Dr. Munshi said when he first talked to me about this process, “I like my patients bored, that means they are feeling well.”
