The rest of the week went by, the tiredness remained and the sick feeling stayed too. Over the last couple of days I have had a tingling sensation come and go in my finger tips, sometimes it just hurts a little when I touch something lightly, but it's manageable.
On Wednesday I got some really good feedback from Tuesday's meeting about data protection. I continued with some work, and eat loads, currently I am eating breakfast followed by 3-4 hot meals with snacks on top each day. My lowest weight recently was 7 and a half stone in October, I'm now tipping the scales at 9 and a half stone; the heaviest I have ever been. When I had my operation in early February the dietician gave me a goal weight of 57KG, I weighed myself the other day and I have surpassed this target hitting 60KG. My work trousers are getting tight and I can tell, as can everyone else. Lots of people are saying that I am looking healthier than ever, Leonie even said that previously I had looked grey and gaunt, but now I look fuller and tanned! Not all bad!
Anne (Dave's mum) sent some jelly babies for me and they helped with the metallic taste in my mouth. They didn't last long though, neither did the GF chocolate cake from the weekend! In the evening we started to watch wonder women, it's so bad, it's good! During the day I got a phone call from Rosemere asking for me to be case study, so we did a phone interview and hopefully they will print it, she was asking me mainly about the Walk in the Dark, I'm hoping I can do the walk, but it shouldn't be a problem, I can do 10 miles run in my sleep, so a 10 mile walk should be easy.
Thursday was much the same, just plodding on as usual, just a little slower and more tired. My bedtime is getting ealier each night and I can tell it's getting more difficult. I feel weary for most of the first week after chemo, and this time it's been harder, but they did say that the second Chemo would be the worst. I have been able to cope with it so far and I am more worried about the surgery and the recovery from that. I want to run again, and I plan to go for a run this weekend when our friend Stacy visits. She ran her first mile 2 years ago and was chuffed with her achievement then, but next weekend she runs her first marathon, when she lines up next to Mo Farah to run the London Marathon, I'm really quite jealous of her!
