These are my lovely chemo-buds, Kerrie and Rachel who did perfectly timed shift changes for me at short notice. They filled my day with wonderful conversation, hand and foot waiting upon, handmade pressies and distracting questions when being poked. Thank you awesome womenfolk.
Here is the incredible handmade hot water bottle cover to bring those veins up. And the wonderful periodic table notepad. Perfect, thank you Kerrie.
For once my veins cooperated and the genius nurse, buoyed from her previous success, confidently located a juicy one within a few minutes so there was no long drawn out cannula drama. Unfortunately my platelets (the bits in blood that glue you together when you get a cut) were low from my blood test yesterday. So they did another test and we had to wait on the results. There was an anxious half hour until the test came back fine.
Then I took my new and shiny antiemetic and that had to be popped an hour before chemo goes in. So another extra hour. It turned out to be a full day again and I’m feeling pooped now. Hubby is here and now I’m being chauffered to the beach for some fresh and free hypnotherapy therapy courtesy of the ever busy waves.
Fingers crossed this new drug does the trick and works magic on the nausea. I may not be in touch for a few days if it doesn’t. Again feel free to contact me or send me silly/cute videos. Love to you all. xxx
