Hello again ladies. As you know I, along with the oncologist, and as I am asymptomatic, made a decision to delay 2nd line treatment until end November. Was very optimistic that I could go on delaying until at least after Christmas. On Monday my oncologist called and said my bloods has shown a marked increase (I was too frightened to ask to what number we had got to, the last being 1900). He said he wanted me in for fluids Tuesday, blood test, 2 bags of saline 3 hours each plus further blood tests. CT scan was booked for the Wednesday which happened without too much trouble. Appointment next Thursday 7th, chemo starts Friday 8th. Been a bit down over the last few days but after a chat on Tuesday with my chemo buddy, who is on the same regime as I am going to be on, I am a little bit more upbeat. Not looking forward to more trips to the chemo ward but on a positive note I am having a PICC line put in so I won't look like a pin cushion on every visit. Going to enjoy my last chemo free week with friends and family, Xmas shopping, wrapping prezzies, writing my cards and making my Christmas food shop list. Happy days Love n hugs to all, Izzystep xxxxx
