10th March Chemo Day 17

So tired, so very tired. Last night was really difficult with Jane coughing and in a lot of pain until the early hours when morphine helped her to a fitful rest. Today has been more under control but again only with the help of morphine and it’s pretty horrid side effects. Our GP practice proved themselves very capable once more in shortening a two day repeat prescription service to a couple of hours for the seriously ill. Jane really has a horrible cough which is very concerning and yet we are determined to cling to hope. She’ll have tests before she sees her oncologist on Monday and needs some good news by then to continue to the next cycle of chemo. It is puzzling how Jane’s symptoms improved quite markedly after the first chemo treatment and now have worsened again, and I have a similar though less severe cough which has been coming and going for 3 months now. But we’re not doctors.

Maybe tomorrow will be better… we long for just a taste of normal life.

John 10v10 ‘I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.’ (NIV)
