Chemotherapy session #3

It has been a much better chemotherapy session today with just two attempts with the needle by the one nurse, the poor girl who has had to deal with me for the previous two weeks has had to attend me again today.
Although I am quite adamant that the needle will not go in either the back of my hand or arm they will insist on trying, but now she says she will listen to me in future as the first attempt in the back of the arm failed.

I am now hoping that the chemo will begin to do its magic as I have a week’s break between now and the next one in which time I can expect and appointment to see the Oncologist.

I have also been prescribed eye drops for an infection I picked up earlier in the week in both eyes and I expect them to be less sticky first thing in the morning.

I should have a wheelchair delivered tomorrow all being well but I would have to be ‘assessed’ on health and safety grounds to have a bath seat supplied because water is involved. I have instructed them to cancel the bath seat as I am not going to subject myself to being poked and prodded unnecessarily to satisfy some jobs-worth, red tape or H&S directive when I have been party to more than my fair share of examinations already.
The laptop is still poorly and I am expecting an engineer to arrive tomorrow with a new hard drive or motherboard under his arm.
