1st week of new chemo

Well my beloved readers,

It's been a week on the new chemo and so far so good. (cross fingers, toes, eyes, arms, legs...anything that will cross, touch all wood as you pas it etc etc etc that it will continue like this!)

Check up yesterday, cell count down to 16.2 and platelets were 399, so that's all good as well.

I've had a fairly manic week seeing people being the oh so popular person that I am! Last night it was just me and my flatty in and it was odd that no one was over for sups, and that there was no where to go after supper other than bed! I would also like to add at this point thatI made a particulary (can't spell) bloody yummy soup, so went to bed at about 10pm, (yes I am a crazy crazy person) a very contented little bunny!

Today I went to a launch thing for the formation of Youth Cancer Forum Scotland, so if you hear anything about it, check it out, and if there is press about supporting it, SUPPORT IT!!! I had a really good time actually and met a few people that have had cancer and had a real giggle with them which was actually really great. I've avoided everything I've been invited to by my Click Sargeat (ok, quick plug, Milo..for those of you who read this and don't know me, he's my younger brother, is hoping to raise money for Click Sargent (and therefore me!!) by running the London Marathon in March or April, or whenever it its. As the time gets close I will be mentioning it ALL THE TIME so start saving your pennies up NOW to sponser him!) up here to do with young and cancer as I haven't felt like being with other people who have cancer due to their appearance (ie looking ill) etc, but as I've been diagnosed for over 8 months (fuck, how time flies!) and I know that I'm fine etc etc I felt that I should go and support it as it's important, and it was due to people in that room that I've had such good support etc It was also really funny cause the people there (who have either been given the all clear, or are on 6 month/ yearly check ups etc) were amazed that I was only diagnosed in Jan as I look so well etc etc which was a real boost actually. I also left the lunch with a real lift which was also a bit of a surprise, as I didn't really know what today was going to be like etc. I don't want to give the impression that I'm not happy most/all of the time, cause I am....I just didn't expect to feel so good after spending so much time with people who have/had cancer.

Feel free to check out the website from

What else, not sure, that's about it really I think. Got another check up next thurs, so will be back then with more cell count updates.

As always, lot of love, laughter and smiles,
