Nap Time

So relieved!!!After a nail biting 45 minute wait at the cancer centre for my blood results, Sister Debbie came through with a great big hug to say my bloods were perfect.  You would think by her reaction and mine, that I had won the lotto!


I went through to have my antihistamine injection in my bum, just as sting-ey as a vit B, thought you would be happy to hear that Wendy!


Sister Debbie explained the possible side effects which may occur in the first few minutes of the drug going in as the body tries to fight off this new invasion.  A flushed face, tightening of the chest, severe lower back pain and to yell if I experience any of these symptoms.


With my injection this morning and my cocktail of premed drugs last night, I feel ridiculously sleepy. I might be tempted to ask for a blanky and have a nap if I wasn’t concerned Pete may take photos of me dozing and drooling in my lazy boy and post them on Facebook!

One thought on “Nap Time

  1. After a restless night, wake up alarms for premeds the news of the counts being high enough was like we’d won the lotto. Once again you took your new chemo in your stride, when I expected to see you dozing – there you were chatting to those around you, making them smile. So we can tick off another one today, 4 down, ONLY 11 to go now… xxx
