Early post today so that I can concentrate on getting through the day. Still feeling ropey but maybe better than yesterday. Will see the Doc tomorrow to see what can be worked out. 2 weeks down….several to go….must be courageous! Children are being great. Amount of homework that Jacob has because he was away from school is enormous. Little point in being ill might as well tough it out. Feel very sorry for him. Charlie not 100% well either so no rugby for him today. Alison working her socks off and being amazing as always. Make sure you give her love, please, as she needs it too.
Thank you for offers of lifts next week, After Monday I will have a better idea of when Chemo is and the stomach tube being fitted. Cloughy you are on for Tuesday though. I will get Ali to arrange the time. Richy Markham thanks for the book. I will get to it during the illness – I really appreciate you thinking about me.
Due to my lack of taste buds currently everything tastes awful. I had my first cravings for taste yesterday and they were not in any way what I would have expected. The first wish was for Stilton on a cracker…something I really enjoy but I would not have said my first craving – then more strangely I wanted toast with some warm tomato smeared over it and either black pepper on top or thinking more white pepper could be better. I will start a list of foods so that when all is finished and I am getting better the list can be worked through.
