Tomorrow, tomorrow….

Back out of hospital tomorrow I hope.  I have been hooked up to a drip 24 hours a day since 6am on Wednesday and now I only have two and a half hours to go until I am free from the dreaded machine.  I had chemo on Wed for 24 hours and then you have to wait till it leaves your system which took until 12.30pm today.  Fluids are put in constantly over that time amd I must admit I probably kept my room mates awake half the night with my trips to the bathroom so I bet they will be glad to see the back of me.  I am now getting a couple units of blood and some tablets (which can mess with my liver again oh joy), cream etc. for a skin infection that I appear to have developed and then freedom will be mine.  I must admit that I am so glad that this last part of my treatment is over.  I may not be the most active person in the world but I do like to be able to move around and I can’t do that when on the drip.  There is also the frustration of not being able to do anything to make the chemo clear faster and all I can do is wait for my body to get rid of it.  So the good news is that I am now off the chemo for 2 weeks.  I do not have to be back down again until the 14th when I start a different kind of chemo, one that means that I can move about more freely I hope.
