Well that was a bit of a shock!!
Nicky and I were expecting a cordial tour of the facility, but instead it was a full on, this is what chemo is and these are the other drugs you will need after each session in order to remain part of the human race. OMG, or as a good friend would say, zomg.
I have started a course of Alugodknowswhatanol in order to protect my kidneys from the impending assault;
Once through the actual treatment, which last 2 1/2 hours, I start a 5 day regimen of anti nausea and anti anxiety medicines which should lead to a slight rattling sound when I move (having driven English cars my whole life, I should be used to that).
To top it off, Nurse Nicky will be trained in the art of sticking Justin in a variety of painful ways as I have to have a daily shot of something called Neupogen, to help my white cell count.
It doesn't sound like much of an existence, but neither is the alternative.
We are in the process of trying to cancel our flights to England, but it seems as though we may have lost that money, which is a little frustrating; you would think that, regardless of what restrictions they place on tickets, there would be some form of dispensation for medical problems. Anyway, we'll see how that plays out.
I am going to sign off and I probably will not be back until after my first treatment; ta ta til then.
