Today was the hardest day so far. As I paged the nurse to empty my pee hat, (yes, pee hat. To monitor my kidneys, every time I go to the bathroom, I have to pee in a special "hat" - which, yes, looks very much like an upside-down top hat - and call the nurse to empty it whenever I have to go again. Glamorous I know), I felt suddenly overwhelmed by the next two years that lay at my feet.
Needless to say, it was hard to find a laugh today.
