Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear. No updates and still gaps in the earlier part of the story.
The past few days, life has really felt like Groundhog Day. I wake up, and then realise that it is just the same as yesterday.
But then it has quite a tough week. On Sunday morning, I had my appointment with the oncologist and preparations and checks for the second chemo treatment. Hair loss continued and on Tuesday I had to face up to the inevitable and did have the remaining hair shaved off. Wednesday saw the end of the side effect meds and I had a truly horrible day. Thursday was marginally better, perhaps. And today is Friday, and another Groundhog Day. I woke up, checked – yep, still bald, yep – still feel rotten, yep – still got 6 more sessions, and of course – yep – the past 6 weeks has not been a dream and this is all real – hey it’s another Groundhog Day!!
And just to add insult to injury – I planned my Chemo treat 2 for Tuesday so that it would counteract the shaving trauma. I decided to download some feisty, lively music for my ipod and make up some playlists. And what did I achieve? I managed to lose my complete ipod library, lose half of the downloads due to some hard drive malfunction, and of course synchronising the ipod I managed to lose all my old music!!! Who’s a clever girl then?!!
And in case you thought this might not be a conspiracy? The only movie channel on TV is back to playing one film on a loop – THE BUCKET LIST!!!!
Tomorrow will be day 6 though after the chemo, so I should, should, should feel a good bit better and hope to be able to update this a bit more.
