Final chemo cycle!! Day 1

It's over!  At least, getting the stuff put in is over, and I am over the moon.  Had a little wobble at the hospital but the nurse said that is entirely normal and I wonder if it got me fast tracked a little. 

As usual, started feeling woozy about halfway through it getting put in, but it wasn't as bad as the previous two sessions.  Got unplugged and then got out of there as quickly as possible.  Started feeling tired on the way home, so went straight to bed (it was about 3pm) and dozed then slept pretty much till 9.30am this morning.  Had DD2 in bed with me all night, so that was lovely too.

Still feel dozy today but better.  Looking forward to the head stuff going, hopefully in the next 24-48 hours, but not looking forward to the muscle ache which will most likely be at the weekend.  But I have a ton of codeine and sleeping tablets to get me through, plus my wonderful family and friends who are the bestest ever.

So, hopefully, by this time next week, I can start getting back to normal and preparing for the stupid Hickman line to come out (15th Nov) and radiotherapy to start (16th Nov).  Both of which will hopefully be fine.  Oh and I get 5 years of a hormone pill too, but can talk about stopping that after 2 years for various reasons....

I will also need to rename this blog I think.  Thinking along the lines of 'My Kicking Cancer's Ass Blog' but any other suggestions welcomed!!
