|Fun at the beach!|
Of course, there were a few blips here and there; my immune system is shot to pieces coping with the cancer, I guess. The worst was high calcium levels, when calcium from the bone leaks into the blood system, making me exhausted, sick, loss of appetite, lack of concentration and confusion. These episodes resulted in my ending up in the local hospice who are simply incredible. They looked after me by giving the medicine and care needed to get me better and they got me home safe and well. It's the most amazing place and we are so lucky to have it in our area. It's a charity, so most of its budget comes from fundraising so any donations help!
On the whole, I was getting on with things really well. I was phasing back into work and enjoying going into the office and seeing everyone - oh, and doing the work too! We were doing loads of fun stuff as a family and I was being social with friends. Everything was - sort of - normal!
