I just wanted to post a very quick update to let you have a look at what I’ve been up to over the past couple of weeks rather than write about it.
Two attempts at inserting a PICC line failed; my veins are too small, but I still managed to start Gem/Carbo chemo on Tuesday. The nurse found a vein at the second attempt so not bad at all. I’m mostly feeling tired so if it continues like this I can’t complain – it’s the nausea I hate, but so far the drugs have kept that in check.
I’ve posted a link so you can see all the pictures of the charity head shave and a link to a video that Miffy’s boyfriend put together for us.
There are also a couple of pictures of Tom and I in Spain. We had a fantastic time, and I hope all of these links and photos go some way to explaining why I won’t be giving up easily in the fight for my life. They are a reminder to me that although there have been some very dark times of late, light can still shine through. It is possible to recover from the blows, to get out of that hospital bed, to gain strength and to laugh again. That’s what I’ll be trying to remember if the effects of the chemo take a turn for the worst. Enjoy….
