2021 Week 29

I got my lab results this week, ahead of the final maintenance infusion next week, wrapping up 29 months of treatment.

not terrible

Looks like my immune system is still kind of janky. I’m hoping it will improve after having a chance to recover post-Rituxan. Not a fun time to have an unreliable immune system…

I finished reading the Remembrance of Earth’s Past trilogy by Liu Cixin (starting with The Three-Body Problem, then The Dark Forest, and finally Death’s End). It had some really interesting ideas, but I think it would have been more compelling as a series of short stories exploring each concept rather than trying to make it all into some kind of Homeric Epic™. I wound up half hate-reading the series just to get it done.

And I started reading Hugh Howey’s collection of short stories in Machine Learning. Wow. Each story is kind of amazing.
