Have just had the liaison nurse from the Cancer Society visit. It was nice to be reassured that all the little niggles and pains I have got are totally normal. My nausea has eased but I feel like I have got the flu or something – very achy legs/joints and feeling really tired. There are also other weird side affects as in my eyes taking longer to adjust to shade after being in the sun – have to wear sunglasses more often. (I am having to be a lot more sensitive/sensible about my sun exposure)
I feel really proud of myself – I went out this morning and did a couple of errands and some shopping -then came home and made myself a ham and tomato toasted sandwich – first time I have felt like “cooking” since Friday.
I have made contact with an IBC (Inflammatory Breast Cancer) support network based in the States. MD first made contact with someone via a clip on “YouTube” about IBC. I am realising by reading other people’s stories just how lucky I was to get diagnosed so fast and treatment started straight away. This has given me a lot of hope that there will be a positive outcome to this treatment.
I am going to try to cook dinner tonight but will probably go to bed early after that.
YD moves to her new house today with all her housemates so have to ring after dinner and see how that has gone. We will probably have her around for dinner on Thursday night, as her and her dad are due for their usual date for haircuts. It was supposed to be last week but OH forgot with everything else that was going on. I have actually ordered a couple books from the internet that we think will be useful resources explaining this situation to YD
anyway time for my nap 🙂
