It’s the drugs!


They give you steroids for the first three days after chemo which make you wired. Perhaps I should use this brief window to moonlight as a nightclub bouncer?

Have been doing daily moxibustion prescribed by the acupuncturist, which involves burning a stick that looks like a fat cigar and holding it near points on the shin – see pic. Been doing it outside. It smells like weed, so the neighbours may think I’ve got a heavy skunk habit. Might have the Police helicopter round next!

Have delayed the next chemo session slightly so I can go to Trish’s wedding, otherwise it would have fallen during the high-risk period when I have to avoid gatherings.

Some people have asked about visiting. Yes please! I love visitors as long as you don’t bring any bugs with you. Critical time is 7-14 days after treatment when the immune system drops dramatically so you can’t fight infection.

Looking forward to a day of warmth and Wimbledon, oh and and swingeing coalition cuts of course.
