Waiting, waiting, waiting.
Cancer is a waiting game. It’s very similar to working on a movie set.. periods of sudden frantic work, long hours, then lots of hanging around waiting!
But I’m good. I’m still going strong. I’ve even mastered the morphine induced constipation with a merry mixture of teas, prune juice and liquorice!!
In the meantime I have my dressings changed every other day and I try to work on my laptop with my foot resting on the kitchen counter – never underestimate the usefulness of Yoga!
Here’s to getting the skin graft soon..
OK my humour is back. Hobbling around on one foot, with crutches and trying to navigate the usual daily chores is nothing short of laughable. I’m told it’s like living with an infant – everything now takes a really long time! Showering is the funniest experience.. thank God I took yoga, and who knows,
I’ve been hacked apart! Yep my right heel is now gone, but I’m home and dealing with it. Surgery went “well” and now I have to recover, and get ready for the pathology report. Fingers crossed.
I’ve caught cancer. Just like that. Like stepping in dog poo, or tripping over a pavement stone. And boy -was I ever surprised! Nothing like this has ever affected me before. So after dusting myself down I decided to video blog my journey.. in all it’s gory detail.. because it helps me talk about it, and hopefully it’ll help you – if (God forbid) anything like this was to ever happen to you.
Note: the first video is sad, but they get better, and funnier!
