So it has been a very long time since I have written here but I am back. I have been home now for 2 weeks (minus two days spent traveling up and down to Glasgow for bloods, chest x-ray and antibiotics – via Oban as the roads were closed due to the weather). The plan was for me to be home for one week but after getting sick my next lot of chemo was postponed until – well maybe tomorrow. I have to phone tomorrow at 8.30am and see if a bed is available and if it is then I have to get the 9.15am bus down the road. Thanks to getting the chest infection I have been shattered almost all of the time that I have been home. However I did manage to go out for a walk one day but almost killed myself by walking too far. I guess what I have learnt since I have been home is to take things slowly and rest when I need as if I don’t I am wiped for the entire day. While exhaustion and a chest infection have not been my high points of being home catching up with all the people that I have not seen for months has been brilliant. My friend Alison took me around to visit some people last weekend which was fantastic and others have been popping in over the last couple of weeks. Now however it is time for me to go pack (I have been avoiding doing it all day). There is a part of me that really does not want to go but I know that I have to. Lets just hope that I don’t have to go via Oban again.
