The penultimate marsden day. Infusion 51. Only one more to go to finish this 2 year journey. What a journey. Who would have thought 2 years ago that we would be enjoying this fantastic event. 7 years looking each day in the face . Will this be the day we get bad news. Yes we have been there got the T shirt. Never did we dare hope or think we would be saying well only one more to go and sitting back with mesothelioma all gone. A dream. When we were there last Friday Rex, one of the wonderful nurses said they wanted a new clock as the one had become hard to read. So Mavis bought them a new one. But it had to be a Radio Control clock to keep perfect time. So today we took it in and gave it to Nella the sister. They gave Mavis a nice thank you card. It was just a small way of saying thank you. Rex said Oh a new clock I thought you were getting a Grandfather clock I said I was but I couldn’t carry it .
Another nice thing was Nicky was back in her role as reception. She is such a lovly girl. She lightens up the whole place with her smile. We chatted for ages. Such a welcome sight.
We were saying we are glad that this hectic long tiring day every 14 days is coming to an end that is good. But we will miss all those lovely nurses and doctors. They have been so close ,more like family and friends.
But that’s the price we pay for Mavis,s new meso free life. I certainly will not mis getting up at the un godly hour before 5 am in the cold dark winter mornings, walking louis up the lane in the frost with a torch dodging the cars. That 2 hour plus nightmare journey on the country’s largest car park the dreaded M25.Sitting half awake all day in the waiting room. What I will miss though is our trip to the yew tree for a tea and a coffee and my favorite Belgium Bun. I shouldn’t have the bun but what the hell I must have something for my journey. If I get to the counter and see no buns its like withdrawal symptoms. over the 2 years I must have had at least 45 Belgium Buns. Hm! I can smell em now.
Well its only 9.30 pm but I am shattered and off to my bed.
