Day 9 – “Rest Day”

  • Terrible night with a busy ward full of emergencies, buzzers going off at all hours and busy staff
  • 2-3 hours sleep max.
  • Calf was extremely sore
  • Cannot walk on it/ put any weight on it (so I am now hobbling around)
  • Emergency note on my door saying “likely to fall”
  • Finished Chemo at 2am
  • Started platelets and Red Blood Cells at 8am
  • Ultrasound for damaged calf at some stage this afternoon
  • Discussed ‘lumbar puncture’ with Jo. Set for the next two days, ouch!
  • Another lovely lunch with the family
