G'day. It's been some time since my last post and I would just like to say a big thank you to everyone who has sent me wonderful messages of encouragement. I do appreciate it.
I did spend a week in hospital recently, due to more fluid build up in the breast and having a serious infection, not to mention a very high temperature. This fluid then needed a drain inserted to get rid of it, but not one drain mind you. I had two drains put in over the course of the week. It's fair to say that I am rather tired of the hospital by now.
The port that was suppose to be in, was cancelled. Can't put a port in where there is any chance of it getting infected and also they won't do it with a high temperature. Bottom line is that now, on Friday the 12th of April, I get the port put in that morning and then in the afternoon, the first dose of chemo starts. A double whammy so to speak. Oh well, my theory is, lets get it started, get on with it and get it over with. In other words, "Suck it up Princess"
I have now had my waist length hair cut very short (on advice from a number of people) and I must add that I will be rather annoyed (putting it nicely) if my hair doesn't fall out, now that I've had it all chopped off. I will try to laugh about that, if it happens (or doesn't!!), but I was quite partial to my hair. A trivial point, I know, but nevertheless, hair is hair.
My son's partner has the brain tumour removed tomorrow. I will be spending a few days down there with him. An anxious time, a very worrying time, but the neurosurgeon assures us that they do these operations all the time.
The beautiful sunflowers were a gift from one of the nurses at work, she is also a very best friend. These are from her gorgeous cottage garden.
