Today, Day 6 of Round 4, Maarten checked out of the OLVG after his final 6 day stay. He’s feeling weak, and tired, but happy to be home, on the couch with the cat.
This stay went relatively smoothly. He shared the first few days with patients he met before, and he was fortunate to have the room to himself for the weekend. There was a steady stream of visitors to keep his mind off the chemo and to pass the time and he was well looked after by the Nurses.
Maarten is happy to be back to snacking on bad foods and mindlessly flipping through the 500 channels we have on cable. Freddy, also happy he’s home, promptly curled himself around Maarten’s foot and went to sleep.
There’s no place like home.
