The next treatment is tomorrow and I'm looking forward to it. Well, maybe I'm just looking forward to being on the other side of Monday so that I can resume regaining my strength. I was feeling really good today until noon. Then it all just evaporated at once. It was really weird. I had just gone to the store for some juice and came back and listened to some music (Bartók Piano Concerto #3, some Zhou Long, and Kevin Walczyk in case you're curious). Then I watched a crappy movie, but enjoyed it. It wasn't until about 8pm that I got around to checking email. I hope I don't let it go that long again. ;) I also called the Oregon DMV. I have had several people ask about if I'm clear to drive. My doctors have all cleared me, but there seems to be a thing with Oregon law. After talking to the DMV, it seems that I'm ok. But I got another call in response to an email I sent, so hopefully I didn't ask too much. ;) I am on some anti-seizure medicine leftover from the craniotomy. I'll ask the doc tomorrow for more details.
OH, and by the way:
The efforts for the Portland benefit concert have been in high gear, but the online face is up:
Koncert for Kevin happens on June 30th at the West Hills Unitarian Fellowship, 8470 SW Oleson Road, Portland, OR (map) I'll be playing in both the Portland Jazz Connection and the Carroll Raum Swing Orchestra (careful - sound in the link) for this one. Here's the Facebook Event Page, graciously created by one of the members of the big band.
It's me, Kevin, but with a brain tumor. Disclaimer: I have a very dry and twisted sense of humor. This is a scary situation. The jokes ("tumor humor") could be a little dark from time to time. I intend to keep this rather interesting for you, but if I get a "how could you SAY that?!?" response from you, know it's just, well, I hesitate to use "gallows" humor, but I don't have better phrase for it. Enjoy, and thanks for your support through this time.
