Learn the art of patience…..

‘Learn the art of patience. Apply discipline to your thoughts when they become anxious over the outcome of a goal. Impatience breeds anxiety, fear, discouragement and failure. Patience creates confidence, decisiveness, and a rational outlook, which eventually leads to success.’ I have been trying so very hard to be patient. But last week I thought […]

Results.. the quick version or the long?

 Today was the day that was looming. Despite being calm and brave I did feel sick to my stomach again getting ready for the hospital. I simply can’t help it. Pete was the same although he probably wouldn’t admit it. Prof Harris was on form as usual and asked about my henna head and seemed […]

Progress for radiotherapy…

I have had some progress. Yesterday I was booked to see Prof Harris for my usual clinic appointment. On Monday, eager as ever I emailed all the doctors secretaries and asked about when I would be seen for radiotherapy. I was told to call the radiotherapy department. You don’t have to ask me twice.

Four days of intense treatment……

Treatment number three done….

I’m already back from radiotherapy number three. Yes, times flies. I started last Thursday. Pete has been taking me to the appointments and to be expected I was really nervous for my first one. Things didn’t go quite to plan when we got the hospital either. As we pulled into a parking space, driving our […]
