The two copies of the book I'd pre-ordered were delivered last Saturday so on Monday morning I posted one to my daughter. While out I took advantage of the late summer sunshine and sat for a while at the harbour overlooking the sands. The weather forecast said the weather was about to change for the worse this week and it has.
Unfortunately I've only been able to read my book in short bursts as last week's chemo has left both hands feeling very sore and holding open the book for any length of time has been quite painful.
Anyway, this week's chemo went ahead as planned and the hospital have given me some soothing menthol cream for my hands which I keep in the fridge, that's the cream not my hands :) Next week will be my last chemo session that's if it goes ahead as planned which I've been warned may not if the side effects of chemo get any worse. If I have my final chemo then I will be ringing the ceremonial bell on the ward. The nurse said it could be videoed on my phone but as I don't have a smartphone I can take in my camera. Apparently the radiotherapy department have their own bell to mark the end of that treatment too. I have a scan arranged for next week to mark out the area for the radiotherapy sessions. So I'm nearing the end of my treatments slowly but surely.
