Stem cells are in, feeling grotty from steroids n piriton. Not sleeping though thanks to chronic wind.
Had my 24 hours off of chemo, about to start stem cell infusion. Generally feeling ok, if a little tired.
Been watching “Growing up with Cancer” on BBC1. Very inspirational to see how these teenagers are coping so well with diagnosis and treatment, and looking forward to their futures. If you missed it, find it on BBC IPlayer.
Chemo finished, just the anti-everything pills to take. Extra power nap today, thanks to Piriton given to control rash around neck. Tomorrow is a day off, then the stem cells go back in. That’s a third of the way through treatment already 🙂
Start of last scheduled chemo, Melphelan. Just being given fluids before that starts, going to be long day plugged into machine.
Enjoyed a visit from my wonderful, beautiful Emma today. Really lifted me. Very proud of her, much love, really missing her and the children.
Had a post-visit power nap, then supper and PICC line dressing change.
Skype call with the kids very enjoyable, perfect way to round off the day.
Chemo again later, then sleep.
Slow start, did not want to get out of bed. Chemo has started, should finish by lunchtime.
Emma coming to visit, can’t wait to see her.
Just started last bag of chemo for today. 30ish minutes then snooze until obs at 2AM.
After a delayed lunch and 3 laps of the courtyard, a powernap was very much in order. Now waiting to see if supper has been forgotten as well.
Despite placing order after brekkie, no lunch has appeared. I now have to wait for the “out of hours” caterers to provide something, at some time, hopefully before they forget my next meal.
At least chemo done until tonight.
