A couple of things that didnt fit with the topics of the last two blog posts – not sure they deserve a blog post of their own but if I dont write them now I will forget. Damn that chemo brain!
Firstly – I got my results back for my semester 1 papers. I got an A for my ‘Law’ paper that was all internally assessed, and a B- for the ‘Family’ paper which I will take as my Drs advice had been not to sit the exam for that paper (because of having a chest infection on top of chemo side effects), I didn’t finish all the questions as the Xeloda made my hand sensitive to the pen rubbing against my hand and fingers and I could only manage to write for 2 out of the 3 hours allocated for the exam and ended up leaving one whole question unanswered. As I said in previous post discussing this, I could have gone for compassionate marking but I didn’t want to go through the stress of organising that, so I’ll take my B- and less stress – it is still a pass.
I start Uni again this coming week but miss the first class for one of my papers and the second of the other due to YD’s trip. Having to fit it round chemoscans and uni made this the only time we could go as any later would start impinging on assignments and exams
….and wouldn’t you know it when I started writing I forgot what the other things were that I wanted to write about. This just shows how insidious chemobrain/brain fog is – I will edit this post later if I remember the other topics
