More sunshine!!

The weather has been glorious this week and today is no different, the sun is shining so strongly outside. Kieran has gone off to school, sun glasses and a hay fever tablet for his journey. He and his class are doing the assembly at school this morning, I am hoping to go but I have told him I need to know how I feel first.
I took a while to get on top yesterday. I went shopping with Siobhan and David and felt like my body was a lead weight, my energy is zapped. I really want to go to his assembly but I know I have to be sensible about things as well.
I picked up my sick note yesterday afternoon and my GP has signed me off for a month, I was so disappointed as I wanted to get back to work before the next cycle of chemo. I have to listen to my body though and take my time, it has had a real bashing, especially with the allergy.
I didn't go to my friend Chrissy's last night after all. I was so tired and didn't want to drive out and back feeling wobbly so I turned it down. There will be other times I am sure.

My system has been upside down since the first cycle, I sound like Rab C Nesbitt after a curry and a crate of ale, I am hiccuping and belching uncontrollably which is embarrassing when I am out and about in company, The bottom burps, as Mavis calls them, aren't as bad but still a nuisance, It must be something all cancer patients experience unless I am out there on my own, how do my friends put up with me : )
