Grace - who is a big girl now aged 3 !
Martin gave me a prod in the back yesterday and reminded me I hadnt made a blog entry for a while. He pointed out, quite rightly, that I should write about the times I feel well - not just the difficult times.
And I DO feel well. Incredibly well actually. Better than I have done for ages now. Cycle 6 week 3 and minimal side effects. Im getting out and about far more than I used to and although I still get tired Ive definitely got loads more energy.
Im loathe to write about this in a strange way, as if putting pen to paper (so to speak) will break the spell. In the back of my mind is the fact this could change so quickly and so dramatically. So Im just enjoying every single moment of it and not thinking too far ahead.
This week, however, brings a big dose of reality. A CT scan on Wednesday and seeing Dr P for the results on Thursday. This is my first CT since May and will be definative evidence of how well Sutent is working - I hope !
Im praying for good news - it has to be good news. I feel so well and look so well and my lumps are still smaller. In fact my 'horn' has almost disappeared now, its just a slight bump. The pain I had in my wrist has gone completely and its been ages since I had any pain in my armpit. So all the signs are there - I just want to see the CT report to confirm it.
Then we will definitely have something to celebrate and on the following Tuesday Martin and I are off on our cruise so we can do it in style !
