Hi folks

Hi folks back from hospital had my second chemo eventually. Had another problem day. Transport got me there for 10.15. Then at 11 when my chemo was due to start they said they needed to re take my bloods as ther e was problem. My liver function test had not been done and my white cells were down. At 2 o'clock they then called me into the office to tell me my bloods had come back and they were ok. There was another problem the machine that makes my chemo had broke and they didn't know if they could fix it. They wanted me to go back next week. The nurse was very good and stuck to her guns and said I couldn't go back next week and that I need ed it doing. They told me it would be an hour before they knew whether the machine could be fixed. Then anothe hour to flush it out and mix my chemo drugs. Did I want to go home and go back tomorrow. I said no I would stick it out to see if it could be fixed. I eventually started my chemo at 4.30. Tranport was to pick me up at 5. It came at 6.15 so got back at 6.30.
As i type this fingers crossed I feel ok at the moment. I have to have a booster injection for the next 5 days. Last time I just had one big one. They have changed it to 5 smaller amounts had I had terrible chest pains with that and this hopefully will be a little better.

I have posted this card before but just posted it again to wish you all a very   Jolly Christmas and a very Healthy and Happy New year. I have realy appreciated all your lovely comments  and visits to my blog and I wanted to say a Very Big Thank You to all of you my blogging Buddies. I hope to see you all soon. Lots of Love and Hugs x Chris
