Harry and I have been taking advantage of weekend trips to the sea. It seems that we might as well make hay while the sunshines because Harry has recently received news from the hospital that he attends, where they monitor his Prostate Cancer, that he will sooner or later have to start chemotherapy.
I was much more upset than he was to hear this.
Anyway, he has had a stay of execution for a month at least and
I am trying not to think about it until nearer the time.
This photo was taken at Weston Super Mare overlooking Steep Holme, a small island in the Bristol Channel.
Quite a few of you are asking about my health and at the moment, I am not feeling too bad at all and go for three monthly check ups.
I get more tired than I used to and am giving up some of my work. I also feel the cold more than before. Chemo does seem to upset the metabolism. However the numbness has gone completely from my hands and toes.
My hair is growing back! Not curly in an unusual colour, like everyone who has had chemo or known someone else who has, predicted that it would. I was looking forward to thick, curly red hair for a change.
Straight and silver/grey, thats me. However, it is a great style to have as I can get out of the shower or walk in the rain and know that I don't really need to do anything to it. It just dries out and lies in place. What could be simpler than that?
