Okay, I have to be honest with you..I hated the hospice 😦 When I arrived, there was a really really sick person in the day room, with her family all fussing around her, and it really freaked me out. I just wanted to go home and I was hoping it wouldn’t be how I imagined but it was. I know you all said it would be lovely but I just didn’t like it. The staff were very nice – particularly a doctor called Charlie who knew I was unsure and said that it was normal to feel that way. He was very nice and I had a nurse, called Lorna, looking after me and she was also very nice, but it just wasn’t for me. My room had a great view though, with a balcony bit and everything. Also I ate a load of my lunch, which was chicken pie, it was the most I’d eaten for a week. But yeah.. I am going to make use of their complimentary therapies, for my neck pain, though.
After the first unit of blood I felt great and ready to go, but then after the second I felt tired again and today I feel too tired to do anything, but not tired enough to stay in bed all day. I have got another appointment at QE this afternoon so that’ll be a change of scene. Also, a date has come through for my bone scan (the one they have organised just to rule out anything sinister in my neck), it sounds pretty scary..it’s a nuclear bone scan :S. Has anyone had a bone scan before?
I did find out what food poisoning I’ve got but I can’t remember the name..can last up to two weeks though. I have bad bad stomach cramps today 😦 BUT! Last night I only had to call mum down at midnight! Every other night I’ve had to call her down at 4am! That’s a step in the right direction!
The shop that got away is going to be a boutique apparently..there’s posters in the windows. I should be getting some details of another shop this week, so that’s something to look forward too.
