Coffee & Chemo


Here’s my chemo crew for No.4. They’re an awesome bunch. After another challenging vein finding mission, we got there after an hour and half. The nurse was so jubilent she was after some champers to celebrate. She gets a cancer gold star for not randomly poking me with needles.

I’ve also taken up drinking coffee again after reading this in the Daily Fail. I can’t quite believe that I’m taking medical advice from this source but turns out they reported the original study accurately. Who would have guessed this was possible ; p

coffee at chemo

Here I am enjoying a lovely soya latte for the first time since diagnosis. It did feel wrong to order a smoothie in cafes so all has been turned the right way round again in the world of public beverages.

I may disappear for a wee while as I enter Side Effect Hell but I’ll be back with you soon my Bosomers. And feel free to message me. It’s great in the middle of my darkest days to feel loved and thought about.

      Thanks lovely woman! I’m not sure about alcohol anymore luv, it’s a bit of a no-no for cancer prevention. But I’m definitely enjoying other previously considered bad habits, like coffee and medicinal herbage : ) miss you peeps! xxx

    Thinking lots of good thoughts that the nausea demons decide to go on vacation this time around! <3

      Ha ha if only. I can feel the lurches already. definitely getting earlier each time which is to be expected as it’s cumulative. But I feel more prepared. Got extra drugs and frozen food ready. Sucking down bulking agents to counteract the constipation.. ah I’m ready. Bring it! xx

    Wow, 4th round already! You are doing so well 🙂

    Good luck and lots of love. Great to see your smiling support crew. Shame I can’t drink solidarity coffee with you, it still makes me feel sick – but I’m a tea man at heart, so think of me when you next have a proper brew 😉
