>Feeling SO much better – Day 10

>Wow, the difference a few days can make…..and here’s hoping I’m not tempting fate by writing this!

Got out walking again today for the first time in a week and I feel so much better for it. Much slower than normal as I was trying to take it easy….Nick is away and I need to be sure not to wipe myself out for the kids. But I just love it…..my iphone and me and the world! Oh and the snail that made me think of myself!

Anyway, I’m back to the Marsden tomorrow for the last of my Velcade injections in this cycle…then I get a week off the lovely journey and hopefully won’t be as wiped out as people suggest that you can be. Hopefully I’ll be in and out as quickly as last week, but won’t feel as rubbish when I get home! At least this time, the inlaws are here to help out till Nick gets back so if I need to rest, I can…….assuming I can let them take over….not so good at that one with them for some reason.

They’re staying till Saturday lunch (an early mothering sunday lunch celebration) and then we have till Sunday afternoon just the 4 of us before Nick is off on his travels….again, poor bloke! Still we’re nearly at the end of the travelling and hopefully then things will get a little easier on all of us.


About Deb Gascoyne

I am wife of one, mother of two and a person in my own right :-) I have used my diagnosis of myeloma to allow me to focus on what I CAN achieve and not what I can't. My blog is a way of me spilling out....it is for me more than you I'm afraid. But if it helps you along the way, that is an absolute bonus for me :-)

    >Aha! An important lesson coming up! Learning how to let the in-laws take over for a couple of days… what sort of trouble could they get into in that time? Imagine for a minute that your daughter is married and you are going to her house to 'help out' for a couple of days because she needs a break from her kids… how would you feel if she didn't take the rest she needed and that you were there to provide? It's a gift… enjoy it… So they put the bowls back in the wrong place, or even reorganize your kitchen… keep reminding yourself of the gift – and the fun they might have with their grandchildren… I know you can do this!!!


  2. >So glad you are feeling better Deb. Snails might be slow but they eventually get where they are going. Enjoy your opportunity to rest.
