Destined for good luck



Hubby has just brought me a four-leaf clover which he found in the garden. I just had to take a photo of it and I looked up the meaning and each leaf represents hope, faith, love and the fourth leaf brings luck to the finder. It just seems so appropriate for us that I wanted to share it here.

I've been absent for the last couple of weeks and I expect you will understand why as I've been really unwell but feeling much better now.

Back in March I had two hospital appointments on the same day but the eye clinic appointment was cancelled and I wrote about it here. That has now been rescheduled for this week and I'm extremely surprised when really I should be relieved. I will attend the appointment but considering the other treatments I'm going through I can't see my eye operation going ahead. Strangely enough my oncologist has a telephone consultation with me arranged for next week as I begin on my weekly course of chemotherapy which I am absolutely dreading. I find it rather strange that one appointment will be literally face to face and yet the most important one will be done over the telephone. I do wonder when things will ever be back to normal.

  1. Lovely to see a post from you Eileen, I'm glad you're feeling much better. I hope your two appointments go well whichever way they are conducted, and your four-leaf clover brings you some much needed luck :)

    1. It was lovely finding the four leaf clover and hubby is going to try to save it. I'm hoping to enjoy the few remaining days before the chemo starts again next week as it has such a bad effect on me. I'm wondering what they will say at the eye clinic but what will be will be. That day in March when my last eye appointment was cancelled was the day I knew I had the big C. So much has happened in the past four months not to mention being in lockdown and us having to shield at home!

  2. I'm sorry to read you've been feeling so poorly, Eileen. I had been hoping your last round of chemo wouldn't be as harsh on you.
    I haven't seen a four leaf clover in years. I hope it brings you the best of luck. X

    1. I was poorly as in having to go to A & E poorly Jules. I'm hoping the weekly chemo won't be as bad but at least I get to speak to my oncologist about things. No, I haven't seen a four leaf clover in years either, it was a lovely find and fingers crossed it will bring some good luck :)

  3. I remember searching for four leaf clovers as a child but I don't think I ever found one. Press it between the pages of a book and then you'll be able to keep it. I'm sorry to hear that you've been feeling so poorly, it's such a tough treatment, but you've got to keep in mind that if you're feeling so rough it must be doing what it should at those cancer cells. Keep your chin up, I know it's easier said than done xx

    1. Hubby has placed the four leaf clover in between the pages of a book with more heavy books on top of that and I've told him to leave it there for a couple of weeks to dry it out. Those chemo drugs are certainly powerful and as you say they are doing their job. It'll be worth it in the end when I'm free of the big C. I never knew there was such a thing as chemo brain but I'm sure I've got that too :) xx
