Ive had a couple of 'upsey-downsey' months since Christmas. But finally, after doing 5 weeks on my last cycle of Sutent, Im feeling really well. Really, really well in fact. No pain, fatigue has gone and my hands are healing nicely. Which is a good job because, and this is the reason I did an extra week of Sutent, in 2 weeks time Martin and I are off to Egypt. To cruise down the Nile and see all the historical sites and temples and pyramids !
Im so excited. This is something Ive always wanted to do, Ive always been fascinated by the ancient Egyptians, but I really didnt think I would be capable of doing it now. Its quite a strenuous trip with a lot of walking, very early starts, and little time to rest. But Im so determined to do it.
Ive even bought myself a pair of 'sensible' shoes (from Clarks - a shop I havnt set foot in since the children were young) especially for this trip !
