I was supposed to have my first dose of chemo on Friday but was advised on Thursday that there would be a 2 week delay. The hospital cannot proceed until I discover the results of my assessment for the Radioactive Spheres trial I am being considered for. I am now scheduled to begin on 21st November
Normally the delay would only be for one week but next Friday is Show Day in Christchurch.
Two weeks gives me a chance to eat dandelion leaves, drink dandelion tea and other concoctions to build up my immune system before it gets hit with the chemo. After the treatment starts we will be monitoring progress closely along with the medical staff to ensure the best outcome.
There will also be much prayer plus personal study to discern between the various alternative treatments available: between the snake oil pedlars and the legitimate proven natural treatments.
