Today, I was contemplating my post. A bit of a nothing day!! The days following chemo, you fall into a slump. Its tiredness on another level. The morning after a big night out, doesn't really come close. Its partly in the mind too with all the steroids and anti-sickness meds needed morning, noon and night … Continue reading Winning it Wednesday….
Chemo.... I'm on a 3 week cycle. Week 1 chemo, week 2 chemo then a week off. To start, 4 cycles have been planned but probably 8 and then we scan to look inside my amazing body !!!

Well today is a day I've been dreading. I need to have a port fitted. Why? 1. My veins are shot after chemo from my first cancer. 2. It took 6 attempts and 1.5 hours to get a vein for my first infusion. 3. With the amount of bloods, infusions and scans that are planned, … Continue reading Port Day ….. but My Kid !!
So my week has been a little glum. Side effects hit me like a crane to my head. Lots of time in bed with chronic fatigue which pretty much hit me the morning after my big infusion. Barely left the house all week but I did manage to shower every morning!!! Awake all night with … Continue reading My life is not a cancer story..

Yep, there is a day for this! To visit the chemo "suite", meet the team, ask all … Continue reading Ask…. Listen…. Breathe….
Today, a better day as yesterday was just terrible. Even though the sun was out I felt very low. Didn't manage much at all, very uneventful. I think it has so much to do with the waiting, the not knowing. I'm making calls trying to get a secretary to call the hospital to set up … Continue reading A Better Day
Well here it is....... scan day! In a nutshell, hubby and I make our way across London. I actually love travelling the tube and wandering around London.
