Just to let you know how things are in my corner of blogland.
Me, on Monday 7th September 2015
Today is the 7th day of my course of radiotherapy. The treatment itself is painless, nothing to see, hear or feel. Actually, that’s not quite true. One of the machines that I am booked on could do with a drop of oil!
I have given up referring to the board that I lie on a bed! It is about as far away from a bed as you can imagine and no pillows, not one!
The daily grind up to the city is exhausting, the waiting around at the hospital takes some deep breathing and an easy going book to read. It is a four hour ‘round trip and I just want to get home afterwards. I had great plans to have a little photo walk every day but I can’t do that just yet.
Paul bought me some particularly photogenic flowers at the weekend.
I am recovering well from the operation I had almost 8 weeks ago. I still can’t stand,(everything feels as though it’s falling out!) but walking is a lot better, no speed yet, my greyhound still overtakes me but come the end of September I hope to beat her up the stairs.
I have attempted to catch up with some blog reading but find it impossible to concentrate. I miss you but some of you post to Instagram so I get to say hello to you. I have had so many good wishes, cards, e-mail and IG that it makes my heart swell. I have this dichotomy, I want to read your blogs, I want to contribute, but I can’t concentrate and that makes me sad. So to keep myself up-beat I have decided not to try to visit for another few weeks. I do think about you though.
You may remember that my son Ben ran his first 10K race in Cardiff this time last year? He has asked me to put his Just Giving page here on my blog. He wasn’t going to run to support a charity as he feels he has ‘only just’ asked but cancer has hit right at the heart and soul of his life so he is asking again.
I am so proud of him as you can imagine.
I am hoping to go to Bristol to cheer him on next weekend. Perhaps you would think of him and will him to Run Ben, Run!
This is the link to his page if you would like to make a donation or see a picture of Ben & I hugging a Shaun. 🙂
This is just a screen shot of his page, you can’t make a donation from here.
It is a beautiful day here today I hope the sun is shining for you.
I went for a coffee with a friend and we sat under this beautiful sun shade.
Thankful for my friends, those I can touch with my hands and those I can touch with my heart.
Thanks to you all, I feel loved and cherished.
