I picked Colin up from hospital Friday lunchtime, he is OK except for being very tired and no energy at all. Last Tuesday evening he started to have a bad reaction to the Chemo tablets, which were restarted at the higher rate he was on when they were stopped 3 weeks ago. The "joy" of being a guinea pig taking drugs that have hardly been used before means that the doctors are not sure how patients will react. Nurses on the oncology ward called in a doctor over night Tuesday and he was monitored closely, given various things to counteract the toxins and eventually sent to Critical Care but by then things were stabilising. Blood levels quickly picked up again and as he was off antibiotics they said he could come home for the weekend and then will go back in again during this week when the Venetoclax will start again but back at the low dose, he'll be in for just a couple of nights.............we hope.
pleased to get out into the garden for a while in the sun on Saturday morning to
see what I had been up to in his absence. While he watched on I weeded
the beetroot and raised the wire mesh over them and took the fleece off,
then pulled the long grass and buttercups from round the edges of the
beds. He then spent the rest of the day with his feet up in the
conservatory, getting some much needed vitamin D and sleep.
managed to get the small mower going - with the miracle that is Easy Start - and did a bit of grass cutting
around the beds and in the bits that are too small for the big ride-on
mower. Then it rained...........again. After weeks without we are
suddenly getting Too Much. So the ideal time for a bit of card making.
Cards for men were what I needed, but after fiddling about I only finished two and half finished two more
Thank you for comments about the unusual and expensive fruit. White blackberries certainly don't appeal to me at all.
