I am a week post-chemo. For my final one, I made some cupcakes and some brownies for the staff on the chemo unit, I was really pleased with the reaction they got! Let’s just say they went down well!
I don’t really know how I feel after finishing chemo. Don’t get me wrong, I’m so glad I’m done, but it doesn’t really feel like it’s over yet. I don’t know when or even if that will happen for me. I think once I have my scan and I’m told I’m in remission, I might feel like I can move on. When my scan will happen is a matter of debate at the moment. It seems to depend on who you talk to. I have a clinic appointment next week, so hopefully we will get a definite answer one way or the other. I just want to have my scan and get some good news before we go on holiday, so we can completely relax.
I also have another thyroid appointment on Monday where we find out what the next step is and if/when they are definitely going to operate. I think that’s another reason I can’t quite move on yet, because we don’t know what’s happening with it. Neil is coming with me t my thyroid appointment on Monday, and Nick is coming to my haematology appointment on Tuesday, so I’ve already briefed him in that we want the outcome to be a scan within the next 7 weeks!
In other news, I have been nominated for a Beacon of Hope Award in the raising awareness of lymphoma category. I totally did not expect that, nor do I feel like I have done anything to deserve it. I don’t expect to be short-listed, but even the fact that I have been nominated at all is a big deal for me.
I shall keep you posted on my appointments next week!
