Crikey.. I'm blowing off in this thread because I just read the interview with Ross Hutchins and I'm having stupid flashbacks. And I don't want to clutter up Andy's thread. After being in remission for 19 years my tests have been looking a bit dodgy, and my Oncologist has me on Watchful Waiting. He says I'm stable.

Like Ross, I used to get my chemo cocktail every 2 weeks. I know this will sound completely crazy, but I used to look forward to getting some peace and quiet from my screaming toddler for 2 hours with my feet up and a magazine. Chemo doesn't hurt.
The other 2 weeks consisted of my daily pill cocktails, that's if I could keep them down.  I don't remember (and didn't care) about the names of any of the drugs I had except for the Morphine pump and Ondansetron. I used to really feel so much better when I threw up.. so much better than feeling constantly nauseous.
After my radiation treatment, I had to get a Hickman Line for the bone marrow transplant/food/blood/platelets/anti-biotics.

Unfortunately, the white blood booster had to be administered daily into my muscle tissue.

Please ignore me, not looking for sympathy.. just simply blowing off.

Deb.. how are you doing?
Audie.. how is your sister?
Connor.. how is your grandma?

Your wee trip back home is coming at a perfect time for you by the sound of it. xxx

Hi Scotnadian thanks so much for asking, What a time of it you had. I've just come out of hospital , 5 weeks ago I had my mastectomy , and all the results were clear except one lymph node so I've just been in to have another batch taken, and now wait 2 weeks for results  nervous, we will then know what treatment I will need. It's amazing how many people
 I have meet or like on MM, that have suffered, and it's so lovely to have Somewhere to come and talk, away from the family, and friends,which sounds terrible ( they have been amazing, I don't no what I would do without them) but its so nice to talk to people who have been through it and know what your going through.  hug Positive thoughts and wishes to everyone suffering or has a loved one going through this horrible disease , hug
