Monday 29 July… Clinic day

So after the ‘excitement’ of yesterday, I rang the hospital this morning to see if I needed more bloods. The answer was probably yes, if only to check my platelet count.

Looking in the mirror, it became clear that the bruising was more extensive than I thought

However no pain or bleeding and I slept quite well, and it will fade in a couple of weeks!

So I turned up at the clinic, where one of the nurses thought I still looked wobbly, took some observations and detected very low blood pressure. Annoying as I had taken care to drink lots this morning.

Anyway, end result was that I was taken down to the acute oncology ward wher I was given (00ml of saline over 15 minutes, followed by a litre over 30 minutes. I’m still there now, but I expect to be admitted overnight for more saline overnight.

So no clinic details, but as ever – Onwards and Upwards! 🙂

    Oh dear! What can I say?! At least you’ll have to behave yourself in hospital!

    I hope that the bruising goes down soon and that your blood pressure stabilizes, so you can go home.

    Good news on the blood test results though!

    Lots of love xxx

    Hi Liz,

    I know and it isn’t easy! 🙂

    Hope to be out tomorrow, with a way ahead for future treatment.
