I still have my hair!!

Just a quick update on how my chemo treatments are going.  Seems to be settling into a pattern each week – Wednesdays are chemo treatment days then either Friday or Saturday I have a bad day then the next day start to improve then I am okay again until the Wednesday.  Another downside is sleeping – can’t seem to sleep more than 4-5 hours at a stretch then wide awake – apparently a side effect of the steroids which I also have to take.  Wednesday night is the worse, usually only 2-3 hours sleep at the most even with a pill to help me sleep.  Never mind at least I don’t have to go out to work and can rest in the afternoon if necessary.  Also with hubby taking up all the TV time watching RWC I can stretch out on the sofa in the early hours of the morning and catch up on all my recorded programs!

And yes, as you saw above – I still have my hair!  Perhaps I shouldn’t be making a big deal about this as it could still all fall out but so far, so good.

Another downside – it looks like these treatments will continue on relentlessly until the New Year, then will be followed by some maintenance treatments (providing I go into remission).

Ever hopeful we are in the process of booking a 2 week cruise at the end of March so please keep your fingers crossed that it all works out and I am well enough to do it.  But – if we don’t book now we won’t be able to go anyway so it’s a risk we are going to take and it is something to strive for and look forward to.

Hoping you are all keeping healthy and well.

You've got so much to deal with at the moment Judy. I hope things improve for you soon. Great news about your cruise and is something to really look forward to! Hope to catch up soon xx

Thanks for popping in to catch up on what is happening in my life. I enjoy sharing my love of stamping and cardmaking and invite you to have a look at the projects I have made. You are welcome to take my ideas and use them in your own creations.
