By hook or by crook …

06 Jul

Tomorrow I head to Nelson hospital for the next round of chemo. It has been delayed twice now so I’m determined to make it by hook or by crook, or even if I feel crook. The chemo is usually timed to hit the little nasties just as they start to recover from the previous hit. The theory is that although all the cells of the body are knocked back, including the cancer cells, the good cells recover faster than the cancer cells. The medicos therefore try to bombard the body again as the good cells regain strength but before the cancer cells do. That’s why I don’t want too long a delay in the normal routine.
