Good day to you all and I am delighted that this is the accumulation of the six weeks of treatment of Radiotherapy and chemo and I am anxious to get it over with.
Last night I went to bed at 10.30pm and decided that we must move ahead every day now and I was determined however I was awakened during the night, apart from a toilet, I went straight back to bed. I did the and I woke at a satisfied and this was 5.30am. This was good as I could catch up with some food and look at the emails and at 6am Eleanor had asked for her coffee in bed.
Off at 7.30 and we arrived before the reception but got fast tracked to be the first in queue.We had bought some chocolates and I wrote some hank you’s for people who have impressed us by their dedication. First was the cleaner who has always been at as excellent person who might not seem important but without with her and the other cleaners then this hospital could not run. Thank you for being good and struck a friend in Eleanor.
Then we have the reception where they welcome us in the morning and always smile and efficiency. Not only we have met a few who have been a closeness with us and thank you, enjoy a chocolate and our words in your card especially who is training to be a religious priest. You can feel this calmness in certain people and I wish her all success in a career which she be in a position to help others spiritually.
Next are the team who had the medical expertise to make that machine,cost £1.5 million, perform to direct at the laser at the tumour and on the 11th July we will see the results. Before I went in, I had one of the nurses came up to me to apologise he would be working at another laser machine and she wanted to say goodbye and this was quite emotional. I handed again a card and chocolates as told her to keep a soft centre chocolate.
Had the final treatment I was asked whether or not to keep the mask and I said definitely. This will make a nice artwork on the wall or Eleanor may have some different ideas?
It was a funny feeling walking out of this centre with one person and that was to keep people alive as long as possible and this is includes like the baby we saw this morning to the older generation who grip hard to their precious life to enjoy their family.
We went straight home as I had my friend Steve Jessop, our Community Council, and a very interesting guy. He took me to the local Costa Cafe and we somewhat over stayed our welcome there for two hours of great conversation. This included local issues and how we could improve – anywhere. Thanks Steve for your time and also suggested we post the blog to the Higher Kinnerton Facebook which has over three thousand views and my story me be of interest.
Back at home we waited for the arrival of Elaine, Jason and my grand daughter Eriska. Now I had to pause to think her name and knew I short term was affected and I now know what it might be like when people have Dementia albeit mine slightly.
We opened a bottle of champagne and even I had a couple of small ones.
The end to a day, when I have completed similar, to a school exam and now waiting for the next challenge. I feel so much better and can now plan of travelling with our tricycles and no doubt we will have a great time.
Good night my friends and thank you for staying with me.
