Happy new year!
I was hoping to be at a New Years party ready to let my hair down after finishing my six cycles of chemo for a recurrence and having missed the Christmas do's due to the usual chemo side effects was ready for a few glasses of prosecco and a little boogie 🙂 Unfortunately a few days leading up to NYE I got a cold wasn't to worried until Saturday afternoon I began to feel absolutely dreadful, headache, shivers, cough etc and then the temp hit 39.9. Went up to the hospital after seeking advice; I've been so lucky whilst being on treatment never to of had an infection or anything more serious than shingles so was pretty worried when I got to A&E, as I was taken straight away to a side rom due to having a compromised immune, the team were amazing looking after me bloods taken, IV drugs given and just generally wonderful. We saw the new year in with them over a cuppa, and I stayed in the little side room with my hubby until about 3am as my temp had dropped and with the promises that if I became unwell again or my temp went up I would go straight back I could go home with some pretty strong meds. Not the NYE I was hoping for but that's how things go as I've discovered with this vile disease, just so grateful for the wonderful team who looked after me and got me sorted, still rough but doing as I'm told and resting no going back to work tomorrow either 😜
Still looking forward to that glass of prosecco maybe in a week or two...
Stay strong ladies xxx
