Let the countdown begin!

Today I received the first vaccine shot made from my own home-grown tumor. I have to say, there isn't much excitement to report. In fact, the scariest part was when the flight to LA was showing an hour delay, so I had to wrestle with United to get onto an earlier flight. And the most exciting part was when I finished up at 4:30, and the taxi managed to get me to LAX in under 30 minutes, in spite of commuter traffic!

Beyond that, the event was as follows:
1) Go to lunch at Jerry's Deli and be disappointed that, again, no stars are visiting me
2) Head to the appointment and take Benadryl and Tylenol 30 minutes before taking the vaccine
3) Get the vaccine shot and hold your arm up for 15 minutes
4) Try to sleep in an awkward chair until they wake you up to measure blood pressure and temperature
5) Go home

Of course, as we all know, sometimes no news is good news.
