Hello hello. Jo here again. Miss Blurry Eyes can see much better today, but is still having some probems focussing and after a night of barely any sleep, is also very tired. So she has asked me to update you all.
So, first things first, thank you thank you thank you for all your messages. They all had an effect because firstly, they stopped that pesky syringe driver from working again. Now, that is a problem, surely. No, no – because that meant Rosie started recovering from the side effects of the new drug she had; and through a stirling effort by the district nurses, the Macmillan nurses, the palliative care consultant and Rosie’s GP who came out to see her – oh, and the pharmacist in Malvern who pulled out all the stops too – she is now no longer on that drug and is on something much better for her. So, she didn’t have to wait until Tuesday.
The other thing is that some of her sadness was another side effect of this same drug. Brilliant for chests. Not good for eyes or moods. So, she is almost back to normal today. She has been eating non-stop; planning on the steps she needs to take to go out for a pub meal; and forcing me into watching Sex in the City 2.
And the 98%? That’s her oxygen stats, without the help of oxygen, at lunch time today. That’s a brilliant number and better probably than most of the rest of us. What a result. So, thanks Team Kilburn.
