Off to see the wizard, toting a jug with 2.1 liters of urine collected over the previous 24 hours. Wait in the waiting room for about 15 minutes. Arm stick, five little vials of blood, the nurse tells me that the total quantity is about two tablespoons. I doubt it's that much, the vials are so small. She's quick and efficient. I ask her to wrap the cotton ball onto my arm, since I'm allergic to adhesive, and she's glad to do it.
I'll see the real wizard, my oncologist/hematologist Dr AP, on July 5. Then we'll find out what has happened since I stopped taking thalidomide a couple of months ago.
Meantime, the curcumin regimen starts NOW. Two grams today, ramping up carefully to eight grams per day over the next two or three weeks.
