Morning all. You lot are all tormenting me with your pictures and talk of bread and baps.  I love a crusty uncut loaf,  but can't eat it at the moment. My breakfast was a strawberry meal replacement drink whisked up with ice cream to make it like a milk shake. It was delicious. 

I have been thinking of trying to make smoothies.  Does anyone know if you have to use a smoothie maker or can they be done in my blender?

OH has made me a calorie busting banana milk shake. He used 2 bananas,  full cream milk and full fat milk.  I really enjoyed it.

Back from hospital with more medication,  (  oral thrush,  common side affect ) and meal replacement drinks.  Consultant thinks that when the thrush has started to clear up my eating will get a bit easier and more pleasant, .

Definitely looking like a chemist here now.

Back from another long visit to the hospital. One of the machine had broken down, so they had to accommodate everyone booked on that machine onto the others. They did  supply free tea, coffee and biscuits though.

Transport was a nightmare too, Thanks to the rail strike and the Christmas lights switch on at Meadow Hall.

I seem to be getting more side affects by the day now. Eating is becoming more of a chore than a pleasure, as everything tastes a bit like plastic. I am expecting to have to have a feeding tube soon.

My next, and last, chemo day is next Wednesday. A long day where I have to be at the hospital by 08-30 and don't expect to be home before 19-30.

The good news is that tomorrow is the halfway mark point in my treatment. 16 done and 17 left to do.

Morning all.  Not itching but feeling far from 100 percent.

An allergy is definitely better than measles Joyce.  Making me drowsy shouldn't cause a problem,  I have to take one tablet at night. 

Can't remember if I had measles as a child.

I have been given a 7 day course of antihistamines and I have got to report how it is when I go to my consultant on Thursday. ........unless it gets worse in the meantime.

Evening all.  Had a bit of a long stretch at the hospital today.  The nurse wanted me to see the doctor about my itching,  it is not a normal side affect.  Doctor thinks it is an allergy. ............or measles.

Hi Fedge. Snuffles were not too bad last night, I think the olbas oil helped, but I was, and still am very itchy....... I think all the side affects are appearing at the same time.

I have got to see the nurse this morning. I am expecting to come away with another prescription. It's a good job I don't have to pay for them.
