At the Shooting Star Unit where I receive my treatment, there are lots of large windows. Some look out onto cultivated garden areas, works of art and others are covered in murials such as these. Each tile is individually painted and when the sun shines through them, the colours are spectacular. I love them. I have entered them into the COLOUR CARNIVAL.
So sorry that my pictures don't capture their beauty. I have ordered a new camara though, moving on from an old fashioned snappy to something in between so maybe I can take some better shots at a later date.
I had chemo on Thursday, session 7 - I have the usual side effects; weakness, digestive upset, stomach acid, tiredness, head buzzing. Normally by now the weakness has passed but my arms feel so weak it is difficult even holding them up to type. My temperature is ok, feel ok (as much as you can when your body is filled with poisen) but my arms are freaky! Lets hope this is just a cumulative effect of CMF and it will pass soon.
My boys are back from camping at Alvin and Llinos's house and had a fab time, our friends are so hospitable and lovely, good friends to have! I am glad they are back home though, the house was quiet without them. Mind you, it was nice having a little peace and my dogs kept me company.
Had a bit of a freaky moment last night though. Pickles has a little infection around her mouth. I have washed her beard with cold tar soap and treated it with antisceptic cream and its getting better but I found her glands up around her neck. My darling dog Bobbi was the same age as Pickles when I made the same discovery and it turned out that she had lymphoma..... I keep telling myself that her glands are up because of the small infection..... I can't help but worry though....... If they don't go down by the end of the week I will go to see my vet Howard Davies at Rhyd Broughton Vetinary Centre.
