Rip Van Sprite

I seem to spend an inordinate amount of time asleep.  Or dozing.  I get a good 8 hours at night but then in the afternoon I find myself totally exhausted, my body just shuts down and I have to go to bed - for another 3 or 4 hours sleep !

Fatigue is a common side effect but it appears to be hitting me pretty hard right now.  I dont feel ill, just incredibly, indescribably tired.  Its not really a problem, Im lucky enough to be in the position whereby I can just take to my bed when I need to, it just seems such a waste of time.  And time is so precious to me right now.

Day 12 and the side effects are still pretty minimal, apart from the 'sleeping sickness' !

Whats really important though is that my lumps are definitely still shrinking, very noticably.  The one next to my nose is gone completely.  All the others are much smaller and I have no pain in my arm pit at all.  So all the signs are fantastic, better than I could have hoped for.

The 'platinum blonde' look is coming on well too - all my body hair including eye lashes and eyebrows are now blonde and my hair has a good inch of new bright blonde growth.  I shall have to do something about that actually as it makes me look like a badger !

....yesterday, i came home unexpected and found Jane in bed with her arms around Archie.. the cat didn't mind much as I think he just has the edge in the 'who sleeps the most during the day' competition. Its a wander my bed's not downstairs next to the kitty litter !!  Martin (hubby)

Had a laugh at Martin's comment! lol. You sleep away those aches and pains. I just found one of my cats snuggling Into my shoe In the hallway!! I sympathise with the hair thing as I am half black and half red! At least you resemble something! lol. I bought a rather wild red hair dye and wonder what on earth I will look like when I slap It on! lol. Take Care. Catch you soon. Love Pam xx
