Seems a few of us going through the mill just now, so good vibes and healing karma to everyone else from me xxx
D-Day today. First of the 6 chemo at 1:45 this morning for approx 2 hours.
First hour taken up with 2 lots of anti-sickness drugs given in advance before the chemo, then the chemo drugs themselves take about 20-30 minutes to administer.
Got all my stuff ready to take with me - rest of the fresh veg, fruit, fresh herb & spices drink I mixed up this morning.
It's going in a cool bag for my lunch - got to be way better for my system than hospital grub!
Also taking some frozen pieces of fresh kiwi fruit and melon. Chemo nurses advised that frozen fruits are good for your mouth to suck on during treatment as helps prevent soreness etc. Kiwi fruit & melon cos they are especially high in folate.
Got my Kindle from you lovely guys packed as well. Guess I'll be back home before I know it!
It is a weird morning here weather-wise. Quite a thick mist, cool and a bit of a breeze. Not what it should be doing in June. Bleugh!
PS - it's good to have a post from you Barrie, sending some good vibes your way and willing your pains to ease off a bit xx
