Well, I’ve not got my week off to a great start. Have not been feeling very well for the past couple of days & after my routine blood test came back fine, it seems it is all down to exhaustion.
Starting to feel more myself now so hopefully tomorrow I’ll be back to normal (whatever that is).
Bloody typical when I’ve got a busy week ahead. I’ve had the nurse out this morning to take blood ready for treatment on Wednesday & had an appointment with my breast consultant. Got the day off tomorrow then it’s off to see the oncologist Wednesday morning and Herceptin & Perjeta in the afternoon. Thursday is a medicine review at the GP & Friday is my yearly mammogram. Saturday I’ll probably be collapsing in a heap & trying to do as little as possible.
On the bright side though, Evie picked me some beautiful daffodils from the garden
Can’t believe it’s been so long since I last posted an update.
So much has gone on since last time. My new drugs appear to be working and I am now showing some signs of the menopause (mainly hot flushes) and the cancer marker in my blood is reducing. I have had to give up my job due to being too tired (working as a cleaner probably wasn’t the best idea). Although I do still get tired, I am able to rest more and do some more things to help me relax, such as scrap-booking and some trips out.
This past weekend has also marked 2 years since my diagnosis!
Yes, you read that right 2 YEARS!!!!
I honestly never believed that I would still be here 2 years later and feeling quite well for it. Last week in the lead up it was tough, but I have tried my best to stay positive, thinking about how far I’ve come and how well I am considering all of this. I am still very much alive and kicking (cancer’s butt). You will also be happy to hear that I (well my hubby and mother in law) are still using the “C” card. The most significant one was at the weekend when my hubby had arranged a shopping trip with a personal shopper, I got a free makeover, my nails done and an arm massage for free. My mum in law and me had an amazing time, am already saving up to do it again!
Only real complaint I have at the moment is this cold weather we are having. I know, I sound like an old woman but I really do feel the cold and it really makes my joints ache, especially my hip. But every morning when I leave the house, I am reminded that spring is on it’s way with the lovely daffodils and hopefully some tulips soon.
Well that’s enough of my ramblings, I promise to keep you up to date more often.
