I haven’t written a lot lately! I’m just too tired! Tired if chemo, tired of fatigue, tired of pain….. the lot of it! However, I am hanging on tight and have started to do tiny things at home, function a little bit extra which has lifted me. Some days are bed days and others a bit of time spent on fun stuff!
I have felt quite content this week. Peaceful and happy just mulling on through. Nothing major to complain about!!! To my ‘complaining’ friends….. have a think about that!!!
It is taking me 2 weeks to get over my chemo cycle and then I am in again. Im not really recovering in between enough to think or take care of myself, sleep, diet etc. Its not an easy ride. I got myself another suspect infection and back on antibiotics but getting by!
Monday was bloods day…. oh and I had to have a covid test. From now on visiting hosp every 2 weeks, must get tested. I was going to refuse but the swab was lot smaller than expected and noone rammed it down my throat or in my nose, it was not bad at all! I expect it is all fine, don’t need any more drama.
Yesterday was a big discussion day. Was back in hosp for a blood match. To get myself back on track, we are going for a double transfusion today. Thats 4 hrs of new blood for me. Doubling up on steroids for next 3 weeks, continuing the biotics for some extra days and hopefully get some pain back in control.
Its bearable with all the drugs Im taking but Id rather get to the bottom of the pain and eat food rather than pills all day! So this is hospital week really!
My garden is still flourishing and its Aug so lots to do. I have been trying to get to the garden center for 3 weeks but my body says no!!!! Maybe by the weekend!!! I keep trying!! I just keep delegating the jobs to my trio of helpers and they are now very knowledged in the garden as well as everything else! I never thought they would be!!!
Ive managed to print of a lot of holiday pics obviously from last year!!! They are in albums now so I am pleased with my efforts…. been on my list of jobs for a while!!! Lots more to go and its exciting when you get them and re-live those precious moments and we had a lot last year!! Again, really cannot complain at all!! I really fit a lot in last year and think I made up for this year of nonsence unknowingly and in advance!!
The boys have been keeping me proper loved and cared for. Can’t even start to describe. They are totally having a great time now in the hols which is lifting me every day! Even if I sleep all day, I have Amar come and natter in my ears off whats going on in the world while I am resting!!! Pretty much, the world of basketball, moon gazing, pc gaming and how much ice-cream we have in the freezer!!!!
Don’t really want September to come yet but Amar has a shorter day so I will hopefully be feeling a little better then to manage all my fetching and carrying.

Sal, so sorry I never got a chance to say goodbye but I will never forget the kind, strong and beautiful person I shared my schooldays with – always smiling and so much fun to be around. Sleep tight x
Oh Sal, what can I say
I haven’t really been able to digest the news Tarndeep gave me this morning. Full of life, full of smiles, full of positivity and most of all full of love.. you really will truly be missed my love.
I promise will keep the invite also for Gurveer bhaji and boys to come and stay with us all too. I wanted to show you the house and also wanted to have some time with you. It was all planned, We move in and when you were feeling stronger you were going to come and have a break away… wish it was possible. Lots of love and praying hard that your troubles and pain is over. Rest in peace beautiful lady.. you are an inspiration to all
Thinking of you always xx
You will be missed my beautiful friend. Sleep tight x
Rest in peace Sal 💔 Xx
I still can’t believe that you are no longer here, but have your inspiring words to help me feel connected to you still. I’m so sad that I won’t get to speak to you or see you again, but when I think of all the funny things that you remembered from our school days, it makes me smile. You remembered everything! I hope you are now at rest and at peace my amazing friend. Will miss you always. Love to Gurveer, Suraj and Amar too. X
It is with a heavy heart that I write this. I have been looking to hear and see from you, not knowing the news. You were an amazing, powerful woman. You did so much to create awareness to this monstrous disease, you inspired so many including me and my mother, who’s had the misfortune to fight this disease. You were vital to our hope and strength while fighting through this. May you rest in God’s Holy glory, and may God bless your beautiful family.
Rest in paradise Sal aunty, you will be missed by so many xx
