A week ago today I dressed up in my lovely blue dress and new polka dress shoes and went for my final day trip to the Phoenix Unit Sunderland for a bit of Fcr.
The chair was comfortable and the nurse warm and reassuring...I was on an unatural high! Very excitable ! I told everyone it was my last round... even the cleaner who then gave me the biggest hug! The infusion was slow and I watched it drip in ...knowing it had had good effect.
At about 2.00pm my eldest son turned up to support me and hubby... and celebrate the last round. This set the water works away! 45 mins later I was finished... ready to leave... To step back into life. As I left the nursing team escorted me to THE BELL..Where I stood and rang it as loudly as I could. chemo complete !
What a 6 months. ... I am pulling round nicely after those disgusting chemo tablet's. I am going to take things easy.. recover from this round and take care knowing I will be neutropenic for a good part of the month.
My consultant is delighted with the results... Having had a scan after round 4 . so much so he is not repeating the scan as the results couldn't have been better! I have lots of questions but for now I am breathing in and slowly breathing out... thankful and grateful for so much... x
