Juli tells me (rightfully so) that I always focus on technical details on this blog and that might suggest I am doing nothing besides getting IV and other treatments.
Well, apart from some stupid side effects, there is a lot of time to live more or less normally. Within a 3 week cycle, I am spending 4 days getting actual IV treatment — and in cycle 1, side effects (like nausea, etc.) were quite light, leaving a lot of time to do other things. I sense that it’s more about these strange side effects popping up without announcing first, which can make it hard to plan ahead. But other than that, I can say I have time to do things on my own.
Also (and I probably repeat myself now): compared to having 40 degree fever for 2 months (which I did) and basically not being able to do anything other than laying in bed, so compared to this having a couple of slow days, even painful days is an improvement: I can play with the kids, get stuff done around the house (and finally closing my ties to the Hungarian state), I can watch Sopranos if I so please.
And of course there is a lot of rest, but I also walk every day. 2 km is the minimum, 5 km is the max so far. If you follow me on Instagram you can see some of the pictures (in 1:1 aspect ratio) I take, but for now here is a gallery of a lot more. Call me a geek, I love the geometric nature of IJburg!
Bonus: IJburg Photosphere (or Views, or what it’s caled now) here.
We also did a trip to Zaanse Schans, another 2 km for me:
