As I am busy scanning old photographs, I have decided to share some of my favourites with you. I was on the other end of the see-saw with Joe and we had some fun that day at Nana's house.
I had more chemo today and it wasn't a good session. My veins weren't playing today and the pain as they tried to canulate.............. I have a high pain thresh hold but this made me want to cry. I warmed my hands twice over and in the end I was practically begging them to use the arm which had some lymph nodes removed. Two nurses attempted to canulate but in the end the Sister came and did the job. So....... my hand looks like a patchwork quilt and aches like crazy. The good thing is that I have a couple of weeks for my veins to rest before the next lot in August.
I am in bed now, head buzzing, feeling a bit light headed and my arm is weak. My dog Pickles is with me in sympathy because she has a sore tummy. She is prone to "hot spots" which I treat myself with Sudocrem but this lot isn't clearing up so well and she is miserable and doesn't want to walk. If it persists I may have to take her to the vet for an anti-inflammatory.
I did something really positive today! I have decided that the person who is making my life difficult at the moment is not going to win, I refuse to be polluted by nastiness and I will remain positive and good. This in mind, as I was off to chemo this morning I had the opportunity and took it, to wave and say "good morning". The response was as anticipated but I felt good because I had risen above it all and refused to be changed....
