To go or not to go?
For weeks I have been dithering; should I or should I not take advantage of MTL’s daughter’s visit and nip into the next county to visit our nearest son and his family for a couple of nights? MTL was all in favour as was his daughter. And when the nurse came this week and checked his progress she thought it was fine. It’s all booked and the plan is we see the chemo doctor Monday lunchtime and then MTL drops me at the station to get a train to Warminster and picks up his daughter who has travelled from Norfolk. Then I return on Wednesday – just two nights away.
It will be lovely to see all my son’s family including his two step - grandchildren, one of whom I have yet to meet. The four cats are good value and we usually manage a walk on Salisbury Plain.
We are due to start the second cycle today, our usual nurse won’t be here (but there is a replacement) as she is organising a big event for ‘Help the Heroes’ at our local Marine camp. When I asked her how many cycles there would be she wasn’t sure. It could be six or twelve but maybe the doctor can tell us on Monday.
Now we are promised icy weather and snow and travel may be impossible. So it is in the lap of the gods and I’ll take what comes.
