More Chemo and Toast

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.


  1. How wonderful to feel relaxed and confident going in to your SCT. EZ and I used to joke about being served breakfast in bed at the Rex Marriott when he was in Rex Hospital for 31 days last year! Once he was feeling better we could actually make the best of it and be grateful that our room was being cleaned, our food was being made, his doctor was making "house calls" every morning, we were having lots of visitors, and we met a whole lot of medical personnel that were wonderful! Praying your spirits remain high and that everything goes perfectly on Thursday!

  2. Intending and cheerleading from SA... and I will be doing Reiki starting tonight so that it all goes according to plan... intending you are continuing to feel upbeat and positive and that all your good cells are getting the message it is time to get to work for the highest and best good of all concerned, so be it and so it is...whoooooooo!

  3. Just realized.... are you in the same 'hotel' with Paula and B? Please wave at her from me, if you get the chance today... after today I guess you will be having to keep your distance from others for awhile.

  4. Now that will teach me to make sure I read ahead of myself. Glad you felt up to eating your toast and that the holiday spirit is alive and well.
