end of third cycle

Tonight's a muggy and windy 83 degrees in the southside of Chicago. I had planned to attend the final game of the Yankees-White Sox series at U.S. Cellular Field this evening, but I didn't feel well enough to go after receiving the final treatment of the 3rd cycle today. I purchased tickets to a Cubs-Mariners game next week also, but as a Yankees fan this was the game that I was looking forward to the most. At the moment, the Yankees are leading 1-0. I'm disappointed that I was unable to go to the game. Though I was planning to attend tonight's game, my fatigue shouldn't be a surprise. It's common that immediately after treatment I'm out of it for several hours bothered by tiredness and a botched up sense of taste.

My family arrived this morning from New York and Su stayed at the apartment this morning to welcome them while I was at the hospital receiving treatment. Around noon, Su and my sister came to the hospital to check on me and see what I wanted for lunch. My dad was a huge help today as he organized and packed most of the items, which I will send home like books and clothes.

Tomorrow is graduation day. Everyone is excited. My mom is excited especially. I will upload pictures from the ceremony.
