I've been a bit quiet recently as I managed to catch a virus at my lowest point during my first caelyx/carbo treatment earlier in the month. I called the Cancer Helpline and was admitted to hospital with soaring temperatures, the most dreadful diarrhoea, and resulting in 12 days in "isolation" where any medics or nurses visiting had to wear masks! Possible diagnoses included human variant of bird flu and C diff however I believe it was a case of standard flu hitting my immune-lowered system at the wrong time.
I was discharged last week and am at last feeling a little better. I've decorated our Christmas tree and have tried to catch up with all the festive prep before the family visitors arrive at the weekend. To be honest, this year I'm just glad I'm still here and I've survived the hospital food!
Wishing everyone a very merry Christmas and all the best for 2017 and whatever it brings x
