It feels like it has taken an age to get here … more about that later. But first day of chemo has gone well. Oncology nurse found a vein on the 1st attempt (I was worried about that) but it helped to have a ‘new’ way of raising a vein – sticking your hand in a small bucket of warm water. Basic but it worked. Strange the way treatments and solutions evolve ….. A bit of a surprise was being presented with a goodie bag which includes syringes to inject myself with bone marrow boosting drugs for 7 days. Alex is happy to stick needles into Grannie if required .. bless him. After a recouperation couple of hours at Jo’s and cuddles from Alex an Danny, I drove home. Big thanks to Catherine for looking after Coco and Baldrick – it really helps to take the pressure off.
