We have so few things to celebrate these days but the past 2 days have been good.
Yesterday my son passed his driving test, the relief was immense and I was so proud of him. Then today I found out my lumpectomy had been a success, clear margins and lymph nodes. So now I can move onto chemo.
I have an appointment with my oncologist on the 22/9 with chemo to start up to 2 weeks afterwards.
Im dreading it but so many people have endured chemotherapy that surely I can get through it too.
So as the new term begins and my colleagues all return to the classroom I'll be getting my house and garden in order, reading, relaxing, walking and trying to relax before I am subjected to poison that will hopefully rid my body of any floating cancer cells. I've never missed a September since I started teaching in 1996, it will be strange.
Brilliant news on your results, and of course the driving test. Chemo is s short experience to be endured, and as you say, many people manage it. I hope it is kind to you x
Brilliant news all round. you and your son must be very happy.
I had my first chemo session today and it was such a good, positive experience. I'm seeing chemo as a friend. As with all friendships there's bumps and fall outs along the way, but it has my best interests at heart. You're allowed to dread it, even fear it - we all fear the unknown, but you can do it xxxxx
Thats great news. I had the same results and have not been able to start school this September, which is strange for me too. Today I had my 5th chemo treatment and have only one more to go along with radiotherapy. You like many of us will get through it and I wish you all the best.
