Its not an original headline, but too good a plagiaristic opportunity to pass up…
Check out the orange and red bags. One looks like hooky batch of Irn Bru and the other has had to be covered in a red bag because its just plain nasty.
For those of you who have chanced upon the tv program “Naked Attraction,” (a wholly vile concept in my opinion, but if it’s on, I challenge anyone to honestly say they have not taken a sneaky peek at least once!) I might start raising the red bag a few inches every couple of hours to inject a bit of tension into proceedings.
This. Is. It.
Day 1 of 28 and we start with 24 hours on the nuclear option. I’m 8 hours in to the drips and so far feeling ok.
To remind everyone, this plan is an all out attack on all rapidly replicating cells in the body, rather than the marginally more targeted approach taken initially. It should (will) nail the Storm Troopers but the friendly fire will invariably knock out the Ewoks too. (no more tenuous links in this post I promise; if anything, need to avoid Disney coming after me with a raft of Lawyers for infringing copyright!)
I’m a bit more tired but no immediate extreme reactions. I know its coming but for now, Ranulph Fiennes is keeping me company. Cracking read btw; right up my street and very relevant as you can appreciate.
The Hickman line has proved its worth too; so easy having the bags of goodness just connected rather than injected through a cannula. Still very odd however.
At least age and fitness are on my side so can’t really go much more aggressively than we are.
I feel genuinly lucky that I have the medical options on the table to fight this. Even though I’ll lose the hair and feel sh1t for a few months, it is great that there are ways to control what is a pretty unpleasant disease. I did ask again today if there was any chance the Docs had made a mistake; sadly we all know the answer I got.
So all in all a good day. Medication is so far, manageable and I’m loving getting the messages and visitors. I won’t get too sentimental but everyone of you is making such a difference to my approach and mindset. We are 1 day closer to the finish line!
Now, I’ve just got to hope that the Empire decides not to strike back and therefore negates the need for a returning Jedi to show up because I’ll have to don my slap head covering thinking cap and get creative with the headlines!
