In A&E

Well I thought I was doing so well but last night had no sleep with trips to the loo every 15/20mins with urgent explosive diarrhoea (sorry!). I felt really nauseous but took my anti sickness meds and got that under control. Finally fell into a fitful sleep around 6am. I phoned my treatment centre hotline during the morning and they told me to get down to A&E. I did argue a little as A&E is not the place to be with a dodgy tummy! Anyway here I am waiting for blood results and a bag of fluid. I suppose they need to establish whether I have just picked up a bug or if my symptoms are side effects if the chemo. However it's not all bad - one of my daughter's very good friends is on duty and is looking after me very well.

Hope this finds you all as well as possible on this sunny afternoon
