Chemo Three

Well here we are again, chemo three happens tomorrow!! I know I have  said it before but this really comes around too quickly. A pattern has started whereby I become a little irritable with people especially on the Tuesday before. I think its because I feel so much better and knowing that I have to go through the chemo again and more than likely be sick after, is really disheartening. What I will have to do is look forward to when I can have a glass of red wine and go to Frankie and Bennys for chicken and prawn alfredo!!!

I have been for my pre chemo checkup today and the plan this time is to keep me in hospital straight away after tomorrow. Its not ideal but I feel better knowing that I will be in the right place to treat the side effects. I will be given the highest dose of anti sickness, so will more than likely be sleeping for 24hrs. So if I don’t respond to anyone over the next couple of days that is why…lol

The past few days have been nice having my brother and his wife over. The kids have been spoilt rotten. They have been out at the park today where they had a picnic, been bought toys and tomorrow they are going swimming.

We have been out and bought Sophie her school uniform this week, its mad I can’t believe she is starting school in a few weeks. She looks so cute in her pinafore!!
