Sat SCT Day 2

It’s quite early morning. The nurse Vicki woke me up for obs around 7am. All’s well still. I only woke up once during the night for the toilet. I took the opportunity to use the mouthwash and oral swallow (to protect my mouth and guts from the chemo effects). I wasn’t not too bothered by hot flashes either, so a good night!

And it’s been a good day too. I ate breakfast, cycled for five minutes, did some stuff on the laptop, had some nice phone call and Facebook chats, had a shower, got dressed in proper clothes again, ate lunch and received my first vistor, with whom I went for a walk outside, complete with mask again. No photo today!

Later on, the lovely Janet came to visit, a friend I met some years ago, whom I’d lost touch with until very recently. Her visit today was so daft, funny, light and serious – we made quite a racket laughing. Really brightened my day.

I went out again later to feel some late afternoon sun, but it was a bit chilly, so I didn’t linger.

And just now, one of my specialist nurses, whom I’ve never before seen in a nurse’s uniform – she works on this ward at the weekends – came in to chat with me for quite a while. We discussed all sorts of personal stuff and total trivia too. Nice!

It’s only 8pm now and I’m on my own, feeling ok, but like I’ve already been here for days and days, when it’s only my third day here. Not enjoying the waiting… waiting to be ill is so weird and not knowing how ill or even if I will be ill. I kinda wish it would hurry up and happen now. The sooner it starts, the sooner it gets better and I can go home. But that’s a very small complaint and so far, all is well on all fronts. 🙂


About Jet Black

I began blogging because having been diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma, I wanted to share my experiences of living with an incurable cancer. Through blogging, I discovered that I enjoy writing. I have always chosen to live life for the journey, more than the destination. This is as true for the act of writing as it is for living with myeloma, so these are two things I do: I live and I write!

    Hang on in there jet, you appear to be doing really well. A positive attitude can only help and those little stem cells need all the help they can get so they can start making more healthy stem cells. And more and more and more…..XXXX

    Be careful… you don’t want to will the ill, after all. Take the blessing for what it’s worth, and maybe even assume it’ll last!
