About this Blog

This blog started as an online diary and place for me to rant about annoyances in my family.

However since July it has become a place for me to catalogue and express my views and opinions on the treatment I have recieved following the diagnosis of a potentially cancerous tumor in my bowel.

On 3rd August 2011 I was told that it was cancerous. In April 2012 I was given the all clear.

October 15th 2013 I was diagnosed with peritoneal disease and liver metastases. The cancer was back and this time it is inoperable.

It is a little bit out of date as the NHS doesn't tend to have a WiFi connection in hospital and I can only post when I get home and posts take a while to write.

It is NOT about individuals or the nursing profession. It is about some of the inadequacies in the system and the way the NHS is failing some people.

Treating myself

When I was in Sainsbury's a couple of weeks ago I got one of those temptation vouchers. You know the ones..spend £20 on TU clothing and get 8p of a litre of fuel. 

Well I needed fuel, and thought that I needed a new pair of boots. Instead I am cuddled up in bed in some georgeous new fluffy PJ's which are slightly to short, and some fleecy slipper boots which I think I am going to need as this cancer must be serious.

I've just had to rearrange my whole week next week as I am going to be commuting to Guildford on Monday and Wednesday and then chemo starts next Thursday. 

This chemo is going to be different to before, and I promise to keep you updated every step of the way.
