Okay - so where've you been???

Well, I wish I could say I've been living the high life on a sunny beach eating Sausage & Egg McMuffins but alas no.

Looking back on the blog I've realised that quite a lot looks to be missing from my final week before Phase 2, so in a nutshell - the transfusion went well (3 bags to increase haemoglobin counts), I stopped being neutropenic so was able to go out to Pizza Express for lunch with Sarah (which was wonderful) on the Thursday afterwards and spent the weekend helping out around the home, cooking etc.

I did have to take it easy though as I noticed my feet swelling up something awful and the hospital instructed me to literally put my feet up - the cause for the fluid retention still isn't known for sure but it could be a side effect of the Imatinib I'm taking.

Need to take a break now to help Sarah with some household computing/accounts but will blog later the joy of Phase 2 so far :-(

  1. To take your "girl" out to pizza express and do householdtasks is great.
    Elevate your feet very high to eliviate the swelling.
