January sick and tired you’ve been hanging on me – name that tune!

So whose old enough to name that tune?   ……… if you remember you must be the same vintage as me.   Good vintage of course like a fine wine ripening with age :-)    Jesus it’s a long month isn’t it? keep thinking it’s nearly over and then realise nearly another two weeks to go!

Last weekend we had Rebecca’s birthday party with 12 of her friends.  They had a brilliant time and we had it outside the house so wasnt too much hassle for me.  Party was at 1.30 and she was awake from 9 asking every five minutes how long more was left.  They had great craic and it ended up in a disco.  The music was great and even had a bop ha ha how life has changed dancing at a six-year olds birthday party is my only social life.  Must say was wrecked after it felt a bit woozy after my turn on the dance floor so was glad to get home and put the feet up.

So where was I in relation to this bastard cancer?  Last time was telling you about the new chemo I had and will be having over the next nine weeks.  This chemo seems to be okay – however that is I think because I am over the worst of it now.  I wonder sometimes when I feel sick and then come out of it did I really feel sick at all?  I think it’s a woman thing you know the way we don’t like to complain about our illnesses :-)    Monday and Tuesday were fairly awful days I must say nearly every bone in my body was in pain, this particular chemo is known to attack your bones and I swear I could feel the poison eating into me.  Did’nt do a martyr trick on Monday or Tuesday listened to my body and basically spent both days in bed apart from getting up in morning to get the kids sorted.   Last weekend basically got shag all sleep which seems to be happening most nights now and it drives me mad.

Now I am in great spirits apart from the fact that I am very bored, can’t sleep and really want to do stuff and not able to as have to take care of myself this middle week.  Have done great so far not to have caught a cold or bad infection so want to keep that record up.  I live my social life through my friends now and see what they get up to.  Did partake in a glass or two of vino last night and must say it tasted great and caught up with loads of people on Facebook and listened to some good tunes so not a bad ole night was had by myself :-)

Big week for me next week – MRI on Monday, back in the big machine hopefully not Stairway to Heaven this time :-)   Wednesday back in the boob sandwich maker for a Mammogram and on Friday meet up with my surgeon to get all the results.  What I am hoping for is that the tumour has shrunk as they had hoped and that all is going according to plan.   Friday will be a big day and I feel positive that its going to be good news but need all your good vibes along with me as well.  So once again folks whoever it is that listens to you please have a chat with them and wish me all the luck for Friday morning.

Going out on Saturday night, yeehaaaaaa first nite out since the Christmas party night.  A friend of mine Karen is having a fancy dress 40th Birthday Party – and wow must say when Karen and Andrew do parties they do them well – can’t wait should be great craic and I will be in flying form for it.   Need your help though not too sure what to go as – what do you reckon?

What should I go to the Fancy Dress as?
