I just found my journals from after I was diagnosed in London in December 2005. Here is an excerpt:
"Neuts not budged from 0.02 all week until today - 0.08! A small victory, Tomorrow's results will be the test, up or down - what's it going to be? Mucositis, thrush in belly, fluid in the knee caps, itchy skin, peeling lips, thining hair, massive weight loss and a generalised misery that comes with having had enough.
Is it time to go home now? Do I want to go home now? Where is home? Chris came tonight - we cried."
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
