Lucky me

So yet another week is over.  This one has felt quite long as not only have I being getting chemo every day but on Monday picc line 3 stopped working and number 4 had to go in.  This is because my veins are giving up the ghost and add to that the fact  my liver is in a mood with me due to the chemo/antibiotic combination and you will maybe understand how glad I am that this week is over.  But this week has also taught me once again how lucky I am to have the friends that I have in my life, those that help me and listen to me and those that give me a swift kick when needed.  I also realise how lucky I am to still be here as yet another patient from my ward received the bad news and has since passed away.  I am not one of these people that asks “why me?” because why not me?  But I do thank God I am still here, I am one of the lucky ones and must never forget that.
