Today I have felt really quite well. My sister Linda, who has Downs Syndrome, came over for her lunch and we went shopping in the afternoon. I have had little or no breathlessness today. The only thing I have experienced is cramp in my hands which lasted about half an hour. Because I have taken the chemotherapy element of the treatment, I have now got the rash back on my face. Seeing as I was so pale the other day, I prefer the rash as it is just like a rosy glow. I wouldn't be sorry if it
Had a bit of a chat with hubby today - I am glad we can talk these things through like we do.
He mentioned that he was finding it more and more difficult to tell the time using a standard clock/watch face.
I have to admit, that I had suspected this for a few weeks as there have been sporadic incidents where he has got himself ready for appointments etc several hours before he needed to do so - then looked at me mystified as to why I wasn't ready too
Well this morning I started the next cycle of treatment so I had 30 tablets to take and an injection. Got used to it now. I always wait to see how I am going to be affected because I always remember what all the medics told me and the leaflets and up to now it has been nothing like described - thank goodness. It doesn't mean the treatment isn't working because the figures show that it is working very well- another 'thank goodness'.
Decided to shake off the lethargy and go food

We went shopping quite early in the day. It is something I used to do alone, but hubby wants to come and help these days. He likes to be useful wherever he can and I think that's lovely - though it does mean it takes longer!
Over the past few weeks, I've noticed that hubby has shown some degree of confusion at the checkout. If I ask him to put the fruit and veg in the green canvas
