We're starting interferon today! Well, Noo is, to be specific; I'm just along for the ride.

I may not be receiving interferon, but I am in charge of making sure we come home to a comfortable, well-stocked house after each treatment. So I made a couple of gallons of black bean chili yesterday, and made sure we had plenty of toilet paper. That was the limit of my coping skills for the day. Let's see what this day brings.
