It’s only half an hour until I’m scheduled to get my re-engineered t-cells. The excitement is off the charts. I’ve had all my research blood labs drawn, been given another once over and Houston, we are ready for lift off. I have my pager, and now just wait to be called to the room for infusion.
One of the lab techs commented how nonchalant the whole thing seems. The small vial of my cells, the half hour it takes. It’s no big deal, it’s just a cure for cancer.
