Saturday… not a good week!

I’m sorry I haven’t posted for a while. There was a milestone on Thursday, which was t+51, but also the anniversay of my admission to Guy’s for the procedure. I suppose If I had known what 12 months later would be like, I would have been disappointed, but hey-ho – I have survived another year!

So to this week – I went into work for the first three days of the week, but as the week progressed, my mouth became very sore (imagine eating stinging nettles!) and I took Thursday and Friday off – and spent most of the days in bed. (I am in bed now good old trusty laptop!)

One of the problems with the sore mouth is that it makes eating almost impossible. I do have the high calorie milk shake drinks, so I am getting some nourishment.

I am off to Guy’s again on Monday, blood checks and an echocardiogram. With a bit of luck I might get some oxygen too! I hope the GCSF will start having an effect – certainly once the neutrophils start increasing, the mucositis goes quite quickly/

So – through gritted teeth – onwards and upwards!!

    Crossing again…………try Winter Pimm’s warmed with apple juice (Number 3 Cup) should help your mouth to feel less dry…….unless you have too too much.

    I suppose it is not comfort to know that, according to “Animal Park” giraffes love nettles! But you have the stiff upper lip needed. Sorry to hear that it has been a dumpy week, next is bound to be better. Thoughts and love winging in your direction. L’nHs to all, O&U, E.

    Peter do you have enough neck to be a giraffe ? 🙂

    Having had a herd for some time I can confirm that old goats like nettles…………..nah………not you.

    Thinking of diets I will chase up my neighbour again.
