The Day After Chemo pt. 3

Nice fanny pack, eh?

When my father goes in every other week to the hospital for chemotherapy, he is hooked up to a machine which administers him the chemo "medicine" for two hours.
When that is finished, they set him up with a pump (which is inside the fanny pack) that pumps other medicine from the pack up to a port in his chest. He must wear this for the next 46 hours, and then at noon on every other Sunday somebody (often me) will unhook him from the pack, take the needle out of his chest, and he is set Free!

On Saturday, my father and two old friends of his went to a Whitewater Warhawks football game, but that doesn't mean he can leave the chemo at home. He is a lucky recipient of the most fashionable piece of medical equipment out there!

As far as how he's feeling, seems all good and dandy. We went to the gym not too long ago, and a few days before that (when it was still tolerable weather) we went for a bike ride.

Until next time!

The Pennine Co2 pump would inflate a tubular tyre in 2 seconds using a Sparklets cylinder held inside the aluminium tube. The steel bar acted as a lever forcing the cylinder onto a needle inside the tube. The gas would flow through the needle into a rubber bush which is pressed tightly onto the open valve of the tyre. This one is in spring clips with added bar tape. I am trying to recreate the look of racing bikes that were sometimes , especially in the |Tours, festooned with spares. No support car back then.
