Hi Ben,

So pleased to hear from you Ben,sorry it’s been a while since I last wrote…life has been a bit crazy of late.😵

I was told about 7weeks ago that I will be going through 6cycles of chemo in the next 6months,and I should  finish about a week before Xmas. I have since had one cycle of 4 days straight (that will be each month) so 5 more to go, Plus I  still have to have my intragam another week each month.

The 4 days straight is pretty tough and by day 4 I have to drag myself out of bed to basically get there. All good, I have fabulous family and friends who rally around me and keep on giving me encouragement none stop, and I always apologise…especially to my husband before hand if I get a bit out of sorts…that I’m truly sorry.

Ben I know what your saying about  your blood readings, Iv actually stopped looking at them for a couple of weeks now…it’s dam depressing and very confusing.😵💫My levels are all over the place and not much of it is normal unfortunately. I once said to my oncologist that my life in basically in your hands,and that’s the reality of it all. We have to trust that they have our best interests at heart ❤️ while they are trying to get a handle on our rotten cancer it will alter just about everything, pretty potent those drugs! All my levels are very low or extremely high,my white cell count is very low atm so just staying at home in the Hope I don’t get sick or a temperature.I am taking antibiotics every day anyway to hopefully  ward off anything that starts.😬 So I know it’s harder said then done but try not worry about your levels ,trust that your Dr is watching closely…but keep asking questions,they like that and it prompts them to question different options 🤔 our blood results are more then likely similar in some respects but also very different in others due to different types of chemotherapy and drugs that we are taking.I hope you have not been too ill 😷 and managing to eat sleep and do most things that you normally would do, although I myself have to change arrangements at the last moment.That’s ok too.

Please stay in contact,I enjoy hearing from you and how your going,take care.😊
