Well I’m nearly 3 weeks into my third chemotherapy treatment and I thought it was about time I let you know how I’ve got on!
Do not take my lack of posting earlier as bad news though, this session was overall not too bad.
Apart from being hospitalised for one night with dehydration (that wasn’t particularly nice) I feel like my side effects were over with a little sooner this cycle.
That has meant I’ve had longer to feel almost normal!
The dehydration issue was pretty severe but only lasted a few days but it was bad enough that my Oncologist is reducing my chemo dose by 25% next week.
I only have 1 more of that horrible AC chemo cycles left and then I start 12 weeks worth of Paclitaxel – I’ll have those every weekly then instead of every 3 weeks but my Oncologist has told me that the side effects are less severe.
Please keep your fingers crossed that it’s true!
This cycle has also been wonderful as my parents arrived from the UK to help out – YAY! It’s been so so wonderful to have support from them – my house is now clean and tidy, we have a better routine and Mr M is finally getting a break from having to do so much himself.
The kids are so delighted to see them too – we’re all very very happy!
This week I had an interview and photoshoot too! I’ll let you know in the next few weeks what that was for but it’s exciting :)
So all in all, the last 3 weeks haven’t been all that bad :)
My wonderful, wonderful friend Adele sent me this AMAAAAZING hamper from Betty’s Tearooms in Yorkshire. It was chock FULL of Yorkshire treats and was soooo heavy. Thank you thank you thank you Adele – you’ve made me and my tummy very very happy! x x
Right then, I think I’m going to finally publish a pic of my baldy head soon – I keep meaning to but just haven’t gotten around to it. I did get Mr M to film the shave so if I can get my act together, I will edit and post that this week.
Thank you once more to everyone who has kept in touch, offered support and generally been all round lovely lovely friends. We just would not have been able to get through this without your support.
Knowing that I have so many people who are there for me wills me on and I am eternally grateful to you for being such wonderful supporters.
Thank you x
