Just what I need right now – yeah, right!

29 Apr

Between day 7 and day 14 following chemo my platelets and immune levels are very low and I become susceptible to any infection going around. I am supposed to stay clear of public transport and public places where people may be breathing nasties.

Too bad and too late!

Since the weekend I’ve been battling to stop the onset of a heavy cold. Heavy doses of echinacea may be helping minimise the bug but today I have quite a sore throat and chest infection with dripping sinuses.

More rapids on the river of life – but great views!

    What is it about colds. They are so insidious (now that’s a good word). We all got lousy ones in the break and we’re meant to have good immune systems, so short of living in a bubble you are plum out of luck. Hopefully it doesn’t linger.
    Speaking of lingering, the long mild autumn continues for us down here. We are suspicious about what this means for winter when it does arrive, but throughily enjoying the mild days none the less. Abby’s netball at hagley starts this saturday so it will probably turn southerly 10 minutes before the game.
    Always good to read your ‘blog’ and here of the swings and round-abouts.
    GB to you both
