Well I've done it ...I've reached the half way mark in my chemotherapy treatment. What has been humbling and uplifting is the wave of love and good wishes I have received from friends neighbours and the little thoughtful gifts that have just come through the door. All carefully chosen and wishing me well
Each act of kindness and thought means so much and helps me to keep positive and strong.
I had some wonderful news to further boost me ~ I went to see my consultant three days before my third treatment.
Upon examining me my consultant asked me where exactly the lump in my breast was and put the tape measure away as there was nothing to measure!
This made me want to do cartwheels down the corridor~ The name of my consultant is Charlotte Thomson and she is such a caring person and knows how hard I found it to accept the fact that I had to have chemotherapy so she was really pleased that the treatment is working so quickly.
She wants me to have another scan so I can see how the other tumours are shrinking to give me another positive boost as I continue with treatment,
My darling best friend Audrey was a trooper and took me to my third treatment. All the staff were under a lot of pressure that day with breakdowns in equipment and delays in treatments but they remained caring and professional throughout. We arrived at 11a.m on Friday morning and we left at 7p.m at night but during that time we had a laugh , caught up with one another and made some bracelets..all quality tie with one another.
One of the many blessings in my cancer journey is being given the opportunity to reassess my life and my priorities... one very important factor is making time for the people who matter. Not being too busy and just stopping and giving them time.It doesn't have to be a lot of time but just giving them time and sharing that quality time.
Barney Moon Star and my darling husband John remain my rocks and just go from strength to strength.
