Got a nasty shock today. I got up around 3 am to go to toulet. And i could see lous was asleep just inside the doorway so I gently nudged him. Nothing. Strange normaly he would leap up in shock. I nudged him again,nothing, I pushed him with my foot,still nothing, panic panic. I pushed him heard OMG nothing. He has died was rushing round my head. I got on my knees and turned him over on his back, at last he stretched and slowly looked up at me. Relief. I told hom off Dont do that to me again I said. Lots of guilty cuddles.
Pet scan yesterday went well. results next week. But today I have ultran sound biopsy on my throat,not looking fwd to this. I was told on my last one no problems. So concerned why they need another one.
The rain has kept us in most of the day. And the gale force winds. As I have my pet scan on monday morning,I must not exert myself no heavy lifting or exercise. Dont know why you only lay down in a tube for an hour.
I spent 3 days decorating bathroom. I am tooo old for this game. But I did it. Now It looks like I am on the roundabout kitchen next.
We had a nice day in Essex at the pleasure of Becon. They organised a cycle ride from Washington in the North to Thuroch in Essex for the final ride. It was in aid of Mavisnye Charity. Well done guys. They really made us welcome.
Tomorrow its Marsden day that meas up around 4.30am ready for the journey to Sutton via the dreaded M25. But although Maves Meso is growing slowly. Tomorrow we get the results of the last scan last week. Its always a nervous time.
its been a few weeks since last post. Ive been to Edingborough and Exeter giving presentations. Ive had my cancer treatment Ive seen my onco who is happy with me. I am getting a heart monitor fitted next Tuesday as I have a problem. They wont look at my cataract until I get heart problem sorted.
I cant believe how much Ive aged over the past 12 months. Basicly I am a mess. But I must keep going as I need to keep an eye on Mavis.Other than that I am doing OK. I must try and do updates and posts more often, so WTS.
Well treatment day 3. We arrived for my 8.30 appointment at 8 am booked in and took a seat. Called to the Chair around 9.15 Pre meds started 10 am. These will make you drowsy she said. By 10 30 I was gone. But they kept waking me every 15 mins for checks. I vaguely remember hearing a voice and seeing a blury face in the distance as they did BP checks but I instantly drifted off again It was imposable to keep my eyes open..It was 12 when Mavis shook me the sandwhich lady was here did I want a cuppa tea. yes ,did I want a soup yes, did I want a …….. But now I was beginning to wake up. I started my flush at 1 pm and was all done and dusted by 20 to 2 we were now heading home. But soon I was fast asleep on settee 2 hrs and I am ready for a meal after strugleing through dinner I was off again but only for an hour. Its now almost 9 pm and I am just feeling normal. So although out of treatment quicker today still shattered. I wonder what tomorrow will bring.
It was 6 am pitch black ,spent 10 mins de iceing it as heavy frost. But set of a bit nervous but took it easy. Prety soon it was touching 70 . I thought well thats enough for me. WE got through all the grotty road works. And arrived at the Marsden . The journey home in daylight was more confident . So I think Ive sussed it now, its always a bit nervy first time out especially in the dark. As mavis picked it I said well now weve been out in it now are you still pleased . I luv it she said so thats good enough for me.
