Claire’s Unexpected Adventure – Post#4

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..

Claire’s Unexpected Adventure – Post #1

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!
