I don't know about you all, but as I head towards an appointment with the hospital, I become quite nervous and anxious. So last week I was manic in my lead up to my 9 monthly check up.. my house was tidy as I was up at 6 every morning unable to sleep...
The day of the appointment arrived and 11.50 seemed to take ages to arrive. I'm a calm person generally but I can honestly say I had to do some deep breathing as I entered the unit on which I had spent so much time having my FCR as well as weekly bloods between chemo rounds.
Bloods were taken with everyone saying how well I looked and then into see my consultant. He was chirpy and happy .. and even funny at points.. said I looked well and on full examination could " feel no palpable nodes" . Bloods were good .. Really good to me .. and any little moans I had, he told me to basically man up and stop over thinking but enjoy life! He used the words remission .. and complete. ..We all know what this means .. no guarantees .. but I felt so oooo grateful for FCR!
Booked a holiday for September and feel well.
Keep going everyone .. We can live well with CLL
