I have to admit I’m a little bored. I’m supposed to be packing and I’m sitting here researching the side effects of docetaxel and cyclophosphamide. It’s not what I’m reading that’s boring it’s actually quite interesting. Fascinating even. But nauseating.  Truly nauseating for those in the know. It’s the fact that I am reading it that bores me. And that all I think and talk about right now is this insiduous, (I like that word C), fucker. I am bored at being here again. I am bored that my family are here again.  Seriously if I need to be the poster child (I uses the term lightly) for anything, did it have to be this? And I don’t mean to be ungrateful, I really do get the goodness that can come from crap. And that crap happens. And what sets us apart is how we handle the crap. And that my determination to be positive (hate that word sometimes, because really what chioce do we have) and my strength to do what I must could help others. And I am so grateful for that.  But I’m bored. And yes, probably mildly depressed.

I met my oncologist. She is brilliant by reputation. And I found her delightfully as insightful as she was brilliant. My brilliant insightful oncologist has unfortunately not ruled out chemotherapy. She is mindful of not overtreating nor undertreating me. So I am to be discussed and reviewed further. Love all these brilliant minds being a tad baffled by me. I think. Final decision to be made next Thursday. If you believe that you’ll believe anything. Anyway I’m not scared. It’s awful but I will do whatever I need to. And anyway I need a haircut.

    Lianne Cawood Hahaha please please only 3cms. Was being a little dark and perhaps a tad too subtle about maybe having to lose my hair. Love you both 😘

    Shea Albert Its the mustering of the energy, the positive view of the situation, the fucking going over you’re getting and the fucking freedom to choose your response And chemo…Jessie shaved all her hair off, and once she gave herself a Mohican haircut. And once she was with Rob on holiday, wearing a kikoi, when she overheard someone ‘What a brave little lad.” Rob turned 50 on Tuesday. I told him he’s gown into a lovely lad. Oh yes, I have decorated my study with all my favourite cards. One from O&M – Don’t Stay in Touch. Another called Freud the Barber. There he is giving a guy a haircut, The words in the balloon: So, how’s your mother? . I love you Lianne..
