    Thursday 6th August and Eleanor is back again. We decide to take her to Nottingham by the sea.

    Morning all, yes I know I am late again but the chemo seemed to really whack me out yesterday and I have been worrying about my headaches. They are like when the RT caused my brain to swell and I was put on steroids........they went - heaven! but now I am down to 1mg a day they seem to be creeping back and this worries me as it probably means the swelling hasn't entirely gone down and this would be the first thing I haven't accomplished in record time! How silly that I see it all as a race...
