Macmillan Nurse visit

My assigned Macmillan Nurse, Anne, came to see us today for the first time in ages. She tends to leave us alone unless we request contact other than her calls to see how things are progressing. She is so thorough when she is here that we feel really well support and as if nothing is too much.
I am now on the list to receive a chair for the bath to ease me getting in and out of and also a wheelchair for when our jaunts to the Garden Centre or shops prove too much for my back. She has also increased my medication in-line with that already discussed as well as one other.

[She is now on the phone again as I type this, how uncanny is that? Clarification of my medication for the GP records]

She has also instructed me to apply for a Blue Badge to permit us to park in the allocated disabled parking zones in towns and shopping centres.

So you can see, she has just about every angle covered again for a while and like us is hoping the Chemo begins to work effectively, which today I may be so bold as to say may be improving.
