One down

Five to go…

So far so good.

Worst bit was waiting two and a half hours to be seen. Oh well, that’s NHS time*. Once we got in it took what seemed like nanoseconds to pump five different drugs into me.

Nurse said: “Don’t worry about the air bubbles. It’s a myth that they can kill you.” How reassuring. Up until then, I hadn’t been worried!

Feeling fine right now. No sickness, and hair intact. Let’s see what tomorrow brings. Meanwhile the lovely JP is cooking casserole to eat while I can still taste.

Thanks for all your messages of support, and thanks to those who’ve been through this for telling me what to expect (especially the tip about ice cubes and prickly bum sensation!)

* There are three time zones in the UK: GMT, British Summer Time, and NHS time. NHS time may be several hours behind.

    I am happy it wasn't as horrendous an experience as you had anticipated … which is more than could be said for watching England play football.

    Casserole lovely, and lasted 2 days.
    Football rubbish of which more later.
    Prickly bum only lasted a few mins while they were putting one of the drugs in but felt mighty peculiar – like ants in your pants – luckily I'd been forewarned xx

    sounds like the right way round…who wants 2 days of ants in pants and a casserole that disappears after a few minutes…

    Or worse – a casserole that re-appears after a few minutes!
