I know it has been a while since I have written here but I thought doing something useful instead of watching another American detective programme might be a better bet at the moment (who knew how many crime programmes were on T.V. in one day) so I opened my laptop to work on an essay and ended here instead. So here I am 3 months on my maintenance therapy and it is not quite what I thought it would be. I thought that taking the chemo tablets would be easy and by this time I would be ready to go back to work, however I misjudged that. The chemo tablets are leaving me exhausted, although I am still trying to keep on top of things, so while cooking a meal may be out I have started my OU course which is challenging (chemo brain) but worth it. I have also, due to my neutrophils being low, managed to end up with a shingles type of infection which is not helping matters much and is giving me a wonderfully sexy cold sore on my lip. Thankfully all the medical staff have been fab and my chemo dose has been dropped and I am on strong antivirals therefore hopefully by the time I attend the Beatson everything will be back on an even keel again. So that is my news for the time being. I guess I really should get on with my essay as it is due in on Thursday and avoiding it won’t help no matter what I think.
