Gas Fire

Photo copyright: Maggie May

I am writing this on Monday, after my pre assessment for treatment tomorrow.
I have been declared fighting fit and will be all set for chemo 3 in the morning.
The doctor is very pleased with me and says that after my CT scan, on the 10th, I might need a small amount of surgery before they go on with the treatment 4. (As a preventative thing to stop spread) I suppose they mean to take tissue away from surrounding areas. I have complete faith in these doctors and I believe I have the very best, so will definitely do whatever is recommended.

Anyway..... you all know the ropes now. I will be too ill to post or comment for a few days & my mind will get more confused than normal. Bear with me. I will be back. In the mean time, I will flake out in front of a cosy fire. It has gone cold again and the treatment makes me feel the cold more anyway.
'Bye for now!


Everything went well today, (Tuesday) and I have been infused with Chemo 3. Just got home and needing to chill out!

Is there anyone out there who did not know that my brother, Eddie Bluelights, has interviewed David Mcmahon on his Sunday Roast. David is a Melbourne journalist, author of best selling books and a professional photographer. Why not pop over and see what you might have missed.

Hi Maggie, glad it went well today.
It's very good to see you say"I'll be back"- I suppose it's the one advantage of being on round 3, you know the ropes.
Keep well and warm, and see you in print soon, Love, Mimi

Third time around and we were doing positives x 3! Woohoooo! You're doing great Maggie and there was never any doubt you wouldn't.

Interesting about the surgery. Will want to know more about that later.

Dear Maggie, what a lovely looking fireplace to snuggle beside.

Wow, you are amazing, sending love and healing huggles, Michelle xxx

Iota said...

I'm thinking of you.

I also was advised to drink a lot when on chemo. It makes sense intuitively - you want to help your body flush out that poison. So keep drinking.

Thanks for the mention in the previous post.

Chic Mama said...

I hope you are not feeling too awful today. Take care. x

She Writes said...

By now you are in the midst of it again. Ip am hoping it passes quickly and accomplishes what it is meant to do.

Rose said...

Resting in front of a cozy fire sounds like the perfect way to recuperate! Take it easy; I hope these next few days go quickly for you so that you can feel better soon.

Valerie said...

That fireplace reminded me of the one in my bedroom when I was a child. Same shape exactly. They're not allowed in bedrooms now but Oh it was heaven to lie there if I was feeling poorly.
I'm so relieved that everything is going well for you and that you have wonderful faith in the medical team. I shall continue to pray for you and hope to see you back soon.

Stay strong, Maggie.
