ABOUT THAT CUCKOO ?

ALL Cuckoos will be SHOT on sight!

First dose of 3 days of Chemo to see if I can shift the Cuckoo of its nest in my liver ? A reasonable nights rest and no chemo side effects so must be thankful. Just a little discomfort where the Port was fitted and the needles are still connected.

Friday lunchtime and back into Cortez hospital to have those poison chemicals and drip removed. The nurse who did it has something similar going on and I guess there must be something in her family as her father recently passed but he refused to have the “bag” fitted.

Saturday and no significant pain as  such, and the stomach muscles are beginning to strengthen up again after the battering they took with that “Michelin” surgery!

Not a thing of beauty!

Cycling wise not quite up to getting back in the saddle yet but back to see the surgeon on Monday so maybe the “all clear”.

While I’ve been in hospitals and the “patient” that bloody arsebine has been growing furiously AGAIN and is really annoying me!!!

Right now I’m still desperately tired and just sitting around like a limp rag. Three operations, much indignity, some pain, and very little get up and go. Perhaps tomorrow as the first chemo free day may see a brighter spark.

No more of that for 10 days

Maybe a good day to repaint some garden gnomes and frogs that our extended winter ravaged. Very tired and low energy for Sat and Sun but maybe just a little brighter today. Weight continues going down and now at an all time low of 177.8 ….. not sure this is good!

The lower tube that was cut which houses the dreaded tumor is leaking downward and causing a lot of unpleasantness but at least something is coming out and clearly can’t go on forever as it must eventually dry up. If I could feel I could walk around without embarrassing myself then I could probably get on and start doing some of the things I like to do.

Need to get into a more positive vibe, get my fishing license and go sit by the lake.

 

Cuckoo you are toast!

One thought on “ABOUT THAT CUCKOO ?”

  1. Thinking of you lots. If anyone can beat it, you can! Such a hard thing to go through and cancer treatment is still vile although better than it used to be. Chin up, enjoy the fishing!!
