Avastin and chemotherapy over for the month. Always a difficult time for the household, complicated by HSC exam preparations and post-op recovery for Tracey. But we're getting there.
No complaints about the treatment - the hospital oncology staff fantastic as ever. Good veins discovered 3 times out of 3, not much nausea so far and Avastin is already improving mobility, along with physiotherapy on the right arm. Right ankle still swollen but clot-ache in the leg is receding and I think with further Clexane and a little exercise can only get better.
The household will be pretty much in lockdown for the next week or so. We'll see what emerges from the chrysalis after that.
Most of what you’ll read here is life and fun, with episodes from my past, amusing and serious. But I have an unwelcome stranger lodged in my brain, as you’ll find if you explore my stories. Our destinies are interlocked, but its deadly presence reminds me every minute that each day of life is a miracle. This is my space to reflect on life, and an interactive area where we can share our experiences freely. Without you, this blog has no reason for existence. Carpe Diem!
