Today’s the day I do my echocardiogram at Middlemore. Feel like I am no longer in limbo -which is the way I have felt most of this week – just waiting for things to start.
Have started to get “get well” cards which feels weird as I dont feel that sick. I also got a bunch of flowers from the girls at CF – Thank you -made me feel special. My friends are being great although there are still some I am yet to tell. The sort of friends that even though we are close I only see or talk to every few months. It’s hard to ring them up or email them or see them just to tell them this news. It’s been easier to tell the friends and aquaintances I see all the time.
I have been taking things easy this week and it has been good for me. I have had a touch of the chest cold that OH has had but with antibiotics it is under control thank god, its something I am going to have to be really careful of once chemo starts.
Have got my new car which is wonderful and a new laptop with wireless router so I can sit anywhere in the house and play my computer games or update my blog etc and a TV for the bedroom. OH is still setting up laptop and TV but they should be both up and running by the time I start chemo next week.
Yesterday while I was waiting for them to cut an extra key and code another remote for the car I took the opportunity to look round Manukau for some hats. I bought three different ones and I had already bought one in the Farmers sale.
I feel I have done as much as I can to organise things for what is to come.
