Time’s up…

Monday morning, murky and rainy and I am back in the medical groove.

The more the chemo continues, the more side effects I have been experiencing…which makes the prospect of the next round tomorrow somewhat harrowing. Yesterday was a good day, apart from the fact that my blood sugar plummeted in the evening (when I was out) which meant I had difficulty getting home (despite help) and that I woke with a pounding headache which will last most of the day. I feel tearful as I start dosing myself with the steroids I need for the chemo tomorrow – these will raise my blood sugar to astral heights…Dealing with the chemo and the diabetes whilst feeling unwell is something I wouldn’t wish on anyone.

So – now I need to get myself dressed and down to the GP for blood tests to check if I am “well” enough for tomorrow and bizarrely I hope I am. However bad it is, it would be worse if it had to be delayed…so let’s hope I am “well”…

  1. Ask the district nurse from the gp’s to come out to you for your are you well enough for chemo blood tests. It’s something that will save a bit of physical and emotional energy and may help

    I think you are allowed to be a bit tearful just go with it.

    Nolle timere


  2. Hi Wendy
    thinking of you – David went through this, although minus the diabetes related complications – so I can imagine how awful it is. Would love to drop in with a cake-based offering at some time if you are up to it – or perhaps meet up with H somewhere lovely?
