11. Am I good to go?

It’s cycle 1, day 12 of 14. Before I can go into the next chemo session, I have an appointment with my Oncologist, to check my bloods and make sure my body’s recovered enough to go into the next cycle. So what have I done in preparation for this? A day trip to Germany, a tour round a chocolate factory, dinner at my favourite tapas and a couple of cheeky gins for good measure – my blood should look completely normal, right?!

In all seriousness; during week one when I wasn’t sure how I’d feel, what side effects I’d have, and how my body would react, I was the perfect patient. I drank heaps of water, and chamomile tea, had a nutribullet concoction every morning, and steered clear of alcohol. But as I’ve felt better in week two, I’ve allowed myself to live a little more ‘normally’ and it’s helped me feel, well, normal! Obviously I haven’t gone crazy, but not focusing on cancer for a few days has helped the mental reset, and hopefully today the doc will give me the green light for round two… fingers crossed!

  2. Your video really made me smile. Today I have been doing decluttering at home (and it is long overdue so it’s going to take a while…) and was feeling a bit miserable. After watching your video… good news and your positvity is catching … so now I’m not. Thank you x
