Sorry to hear you're feeling rough mate, let's hope it passes fairly quick and you spring back to full strength and are doing cartwheels and rolly-pollies around the fields in no time :D

Last chemo of this course Tuesday and was really bad!! In bed by 6pm and suffered all night. This makes 12 doses of chemo over the last 8 months so I should be getting used to it by now!!!!!! :(

A wee poem John,  just for you .....
........................................................


GRUMPY JOHN ...

I wish you calm, contented days
and peaceful, tranquil nights.
I hope your dreams come true always
and things turn out all right.

I hope the treatments you endure
are worth it in the end,
and that you get a lasting cure
Good luck. God Bless, my friend.

Bob.

Thank you so much for the lovely poem and your kind words Bob. It has made me quite tearful which is not an easy thing to do. I fully intend to fight on and take any treatment offered to get my life back on track. Once more many, many thanks for your kind thoughts, it means so much to me!! :)
