Today has mostly been a good day. Spring sunshine and warm. Walked and cycled which was fun.
The boys ( Jack and Cameron) have their first exam on Thursday, Biology and have spent most of the weekend revising.
Tonight we took Lucy out for a meal. She had spent the day with her friends and so it was good to chat. She is quite the politician and also has plenty of strong opinions!
The next treatment is Thursday 18th May.
Psychologist appointment is Wednesday. Thinking of cancelling. It's another appointment and my gut tells me it will cause me to cry, the day before I have treatment again. Also I am beginning to do a bit better ladies. When I was cycling along today it was hard to believe I was ill- quite a surreal feeling. Week 2 post chemo has been very doable.
So to the negatives: hair falling out now and the onset of neuropathy. I've jumped onto the neuropathy thread. It's minor burning/ tingling ladies just now but scared. Want to ice but with no freezing facilities- how? Will call and ask York for advice tomorrow.
There is no doubt that I have coped very well over treatment one, however it has been a steady succession of side effects. Glad I kept a diary.
Di- wow driving again. Great news. You are going through some challenging times though. I wish I could pop round to give you a hug. I'll message you before my next treatment but for now it is lovely to hear from you. We are both in a difficult position regarding work and your departure must have been painful.
Claire- how are you? How is new drug. Are you on holiday?
Bright- so pleased to see your post- keep chiming in.
Ioana and Pat- will PM tonight. Hope you are both doing well.
Love to everyone
