Day 1 of my "conditioning" (goodnesss knows what condition I will be in by the end of this phase!) which is killing off my immune system with chemo. Farewell old friend, you have served me well (OK except for the CML traitor in the ranks). Anyone who has worked with me knows that I rarely catch anything and now I'm having to say goodbye to that.
It's been bumpier than I anticipated as I reacted to one of the drugs and ended up with a temperature of 40C and symptoms like a major flu, but the Wizards here have sorted that out and I feel nearly my old self again. I had to cancel the dinner date though (sob).
I gather the first day of conditioning is the worst so hopefuly the next few days will be easier.
Love to Peter and Katie who came to see me and are now at the restaurant, and of course Dave who is being my rock and the girls!
