What a week! What else can I say.
Last weekend was a scare and a big one for the pair of us, but as always Simon has bounced back, not fully recovered but we are getting there.
So when I last wrote Simon was in hospital and he continued to be so until Tuesday. Sunday he doesn’t really remember a lot of, but then he slept most of the day. But I remember every second of it!
Monday I was sent a list…… “things I need”, now Simon likes a list and so I knew I had to remember everything he wanted/needed. No pressure there then. Pillow, socks, slippers, dressing gown, t- shirts, short sleeved shirt……. and so it went on. So off I went with my “packed full” bag on wheels, pillow under my arm. It was a relief to see him looking slightly better, and that he had eaten.
The drivers for Simon going home was temp back to normal, blood pressure and heart rate back to within normal limits, these through Monday all starting to return to normal and stay there as well.
Tuesday we made our escape and it was great to get him home, chemo is delayed by a week but actually that is better for Simon and gives him a break for a week. For the rest of the week we have had time at home together and have been for little trips out the house and doing normal things. We have today had Simons three monthly CT scan, these bring with them a heap of anxiety and fear, we have a 10 day wait for the results and to know if the chemo has continued to work. Finger tightly crossed.
Thank you for all the well wishes we have had, we are continually overwhelmed by people.
So we continue as normal, onwards and upwards Mr C.
