Eight of Fifteen

07 Aug

For the mathematicians amongst you, it will not have passed you by that we are now over half way! Go me!

Today’s appointment was late – 5.10pm but I also had to have bloods done, so we headed out just after 3pm. Before that I did some stuff on the computer and finalised a meeting at work. Happily they have agreed to retirement on ill-health grounds, so I will get the pension I would have done if I had worked to aged 65. That’s excellent! Although things will be tight, it is enough for us to get by on, and not worrying about work will be a big weight off my mind.

Saw these chaps on the way to the hospital –

Cute hey?

Radiotherapy was the same as always – I’m getting tiredness with it now, but all in all, we are doing okay. Just two more full head sessions – it’s my head that spins and causes the nausea – I will be so pleased when it’s over and I start to feel a bit more normal! The chest radiotherapy makes me cough and it tastes disgusting from the dead tumour cells. I think that’s a good sign, but again, I will be glad when it’s over.

I am also looking forward to knowing how the radiotherapy has worked on me – the doctors say they will do a full CT scan after 6 weeks – that allows for the swelling to subside and for the good cells to repair themselves. At that stage we will have a good idea of what is left and therefore what my prognosis is. I know this is not curable, but the doctors are working hard to make it ‘manageable’. That would be nice!

Same old tomorrow – I hope you have a terrific Thursday!
