Return to Chemo

First day back at Chemotherapy since February and it was not a good start to the day, I could drink or eat little without feeling sick. I slept most of the morning and it took me all my energy to get washed and dressed. I am not eating or drinking enough to sustain a grown man’s body. I am now down to 9st 9lbs.

Once at the hospital the inevitable happening and my veins went into hiding, warm water bucket and a heated pillow would not bring them out. Eventually, three needles and two nurses later, the needle was in and Chemo began. Fortunately I fell asleep for most of it so the half an hour passed by seemingly quickly. Now let’s hope it does its job and rids me of some of the pains.

On a brighter note I had an email from the Hotel and Spa we were at last week asking if I minded them putting my thank you letter up on their website. I naturally have no problem with that whatsoever as it was sent from the heart and everything in it was sincere and honest.
Don’t know when it will appear but here is the link to the Hotel’s website.
