Playing hooky from chemo

Super short update today, I was supposed to have been in yesterday ( Friday ) for my chemo top up on day 8, but it turns out I’ve developed a lovely infection over the last few days. They are pretty strict on these things with instructions to call them with anything more than a runny nose ( pretty much lol ) so we called them up early Friday and was asked to head in early to be checked out. A quick test later and Dr Belvedere decided it wasn’t worth going ahead this time and stuck me on a course…

The Great Escape

Na na na naaa naaaa I’m going on holiday and you’re notttttt ( unless you are in which case pft ) Last minute plans are always the best kind, and we decided very much last minute to go on holiday. We managed to book a Haven caravan for just under £200 for 4 nights ( bargain – near half price ) – wrote up a quick note to Freya’s school to get permission to take her ( they had no issues at all ) and packed. Not only would this be a fantastic little escape from everything that was going…

A wheelie good day out…

Today saw us spend a day out at a wildlife park, which isn’t the point of this blog so won’t go into details here but the point is as we went in we noticed they loan out wheelchairs. Just an of the cuff observation at first but as we finished a lap of the first loop and had lunch we started to realised that at only half way round I was already starting to get tired. I would have been fine to carry on the rest of the way but knackered and bed bound as soon as we got back…

Cycle 1 Day 8 – Smooth Sailing

It’s come round fast for my second bout of chemo, the first batch went smoothly enough and I haven’t really had to much in the way of bad side effects. The worst one probably feeling nauseous which was quickly sorted with a tablet. Other than that i’ve had a tennis ball size swollen lump appear at the top of my leg, thankfully pain free, slightly squishy to press lol and it disappeared after a few days. I’ve had pins n needles which made for a funny moment when I was desperate for the loo and couldn’t get the top button…
