Just when you think everything is going OK….

….I go and get a temperature and end up at the Lister Hospital in Stevenage.


I must admit I did feel very poorly. In the morning I had experienced a rough time in the toileting department but I was still determined to put on the planned lunch for my youngest daughter and her relatively new boyfriend. (This being only the second time we have met him). Colin went to great efforts to put on a lovely spread but not much was eaten sadly. Never mind there will be plenty for today. At least Colin, Pollyanna, Jem and Elliot enjoyed it.

I was so disappointed to find myself stuck in hospital again especially when I was so looking forward to some time at home before my transplant when I am likely to be in hospital for three weeks or more.

The problem with Myeloma is that it is so difficult to plan for anything. This morning I was really looking forward to having some friends over for coffee but that has now had to be cancelled.

It isn’t easy but I am having to put my visualisation skills to the test. I am imaging getting through the transplant and enjoying some great times ahead. I am looking forward to spending more time sitting out in the garden in the sunshine and going away for trips in our motor home.

Toby, my brother, kindly sent me this song and video and I think it’s just perfect, so I will spend quite a bit of time watching this over the next few days.


Fingers crossed I have managed to persuade the doctor to let me home today on oral anti biotics!

Ps. I was pleased to see the 6 C’s displayed in my room in the casualty department.
