I didn’t have a good nights sleep last night, nothing to do with the Chemo or anything else I’ve been having on my first day, just the usual staying in a different bed and all the noise of the machines etc. I’m sure I will get used to it over the next few days. I’m not exactly going anywhere, so there wont be a problem with me having a sleep during the day. I’m currently having some more Chemo right now as I type. Not that it is somehow connected to my computer and it’s drips with each key I press; although that would be a bit of a geeky thing to do, It’s just that I thought I might as well set up the computer and get my blogging software installed and give a quick update.
Breakfast this morning I had some All Bran and some toast, normally I would just have some cereal at home …. oooh hang on my machine is bleeping, chemo just finished ….will buzz the nurse .. back in a min. OK back now … I was offered toast as well this morning and I have to say for some reason toast always tastes better when someone else makes it. I had a couple of rounds (why is a square slice of bread called a round!) with butter mmmm very nice. I had some marmalade as well, but didn’t use that.
Did I mention that it felt like I was going on holiday in my last post. Prior to getting here, I was apprehensive about the process, for some reason I feel very confident that things are going to be OK, which is a good feeling to have. I said to Amy and Charito yesterday, it feel like I am checking into a hotel for a holiday. After thinking about it, I haven’t really been anywhere since last time I was here. In fact the last time I used the suitcase was for my last stay. It goes to show that I don’t get out much. I’ve been away with Charito to her sisters for the wedding, but that’s the only other time I have been anywhere. So surprisingly I’m really relaxed about the whole thing at the moment and taking it in my stride. I’m sure I will feel ill as I go through it, but at the moment I’m just chilling out, relaxing and to be honest and strangely enough enjoying it. Lets hope I can continue feeling this way.
