Well I had my last dose of chemotherapy today so that's me well and truly conditioned! Actually, the fun really has still to start as all that stuff gets to work on my system. For those of a medical bent, the chemo I have had was 5 days of Fludarabine and Campath followed by one day of Melphalan. For those of you without, apologies for that temporary step into medi-speak. Of course, the chemo has been supported by a barrage of steroids, anti nausea/viral/fungal/anything else drugs plus my good old Piriton.
To be honest, I spent a large part of today dozing so I haven't got lots to report. I was visited again by Peter and Katie. It was lovely to see them again, and Peter even brought me a cappuccino as I had been missing them. Katie starts her own radiotherapy treatment on Thursday so I have challenged her to a race to see which one of us loses her hair first! Healing thoughts and prayers going out to you Katie.
Dave also came to see me and brought me some lovely artificial roses in a beautiful vase (as real flowers are banned) plus a talking clock so I can tell the time at night! Thank you Dave <3.
I have a "day off" tomorrow but that doesn't mean I get away without a drip as I start on the anti-rejection drug Cyclosporin which will take 6 hours to administer, starting very early. Early shower for me then.
