Chemo 36.0

September 11, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

Well, a hiatus it has been!

I am now well and truly back in New Zealand, and well and truly back into the daily grind of work. Last weekend was my first round of chemo in 6 weeks, round 36 in total. It was so nice to have a such a long break from chemo, and my body definitely benefited from the reprieve. Round 36 was as any other round, but perhaps less grinding as the rounds previous thanks to the intermission. I have decided that it is important now, when you are on an indefinite treatment such as this to have breaks every 4-5 rounds or so, just so the body can recover. It also gives you something to look forward to, since the end of treatment and remission aren’t those look-forward-to options.

As it turns out, I have tickets to the Rugby World Cup semi-final on the 15th of October, which should be a New Zealand v. South Africa game. This date clashes with a chemotherapy weekend……… so it sounds like an excuse for another break.

Photos of our adventures will be up sometime shortly.

Until next time…
