Just found out the secret to getting a seat and plenty of room in a crowded train:
Julie coughs and splutters a bit (obviously she looks poorly because of her condition) and I say ” I told you to have that flu jab two weeks ago”
Double blood transfusion for Julie on top of her chemo session – I took myself off to the museums for the afternoon on Julie’s advice (she wanted a particular art book!) as she was at the Royal Marsden from 8am until 8pm! A long session, glad we stayed overnight again …
By the time we reached the hotel, Julie was dead on her feet. She managed to stay awake just long enough to eat but nearly nodded off between courses!
Today I had the honour of being in the same room when a person I love and respect was told she had a fighting chance, at least, of spending more time with her family. Thank you to the doctors and staff at the sarcoma unit at the Royal Marsden Hospital & Julie I love you xx
Positive news the new aggressive “double whammy” chemo seems to have stemmed the growth of the tumours. Hopefully by Christmas Julie will be able to have a break from the chemo for a while, then just 3 monthly scans.
Left Fareham earlier today because Julie has a scan this afternoon, she seems pretty happy, no pain which is a plus, and she’s got her tastebuds back so she’s eating. That’s the good news, the bad news is she pinched my mars bar!
Very very happy hour last night! 2 pre-dinner double Bombay gin & tonics £7.00. I questioned it and the lovely Lucia replied ” you stay here very often so these are on us”. Love the Premier Inn staff :))
