Each day I become a little stronger. This has been really helped by not having the constant feelings of nausea and vomiting. I am now managing to eat a proper meal at lunchtime which is helping me regain some energy. I even managed a trip to Ikea on Tuesday which shows just how far I have come. I did find it rather frustrating though, being pushed around in a wheelchair and not being able to flit from one thing to another. Poor mum and Colin were very patient with me as I was rather grumpy to say the least!
Yesterday we had Elliot for a few hours, he was so well behaved and a joy to have around.
Not only that it was great to see my sister again yesterday, she has come home for a few days visit and to give Colin some relief from his usual caring duties. I expect he will get outside and start polishing the motorhome again. Hopefully it won’t be too long before we can go away for a couple of days.
Today is a pretty sad day as I woke up to the news of a virtual friend and fellow Myeloma buddies death. Also the sudden change in another fellow myeloma buddy whose health has taken a turn for the very worse, and he is only 43 years old. It does make me realise how I need to take each moment of life and embrace it as much as I can.
So today I shall enjoy Kate’s company and try to give my legs a bit of exercise without over doing it. I am trying to sort out my spare room so that I can start taking up a few hobbies again although I have a feeling Pollyanna may be taking over the space and coming to stay a bit more often when she starts her new job in Cambridge.
I am hoping to make some bits of jewellery that a I can sell to raise money for Myeloma research. Another new myeloma friend has started making some inspirational wristbands but shipping them over to the UK is quite expensive. The trouble is all the best jewellery making supplies seem to be abroad which is pretty annoying, but I shall keep looking.
Here is the link for his wristbands that have given me the inspiration.
At day 49 I have come a long way and am so much better than even a week ago, so everything is going in the right direction, but I don’t take anything for granted these days.
Thank you again for remaining by my side, you are my strength.
Have a great day wherever in the world you may be.
