MOST RECENT

I knew the moment the shutter clicked that this was going to be my session favorite. Why? Because it's the resolute look of a warrior in the midst of kicking breast cancer to the curb. Diana was just days away from her final chemo treatment in this image. I like to think she's looking forward to her future here. Can't wait to share more images in the coming days from this special session with my childhood friend, @wonderwmn828.

Breakfast today, I can feel the old familiar symptoms. Thumping heart, nausea, aches, light headed, complete body and mind fatigue, but I’m in the garden chilling for now #chemowarrior #chemotherapy #lymphomaawareness #bendamustine #nhlymphomaniac #nhlymphoma #follicularlymphoma #medsforbreakfast

Throwback to last week. ☀️🍉🌴#chemowarrior

Treatment 1 - part 2 of 2
(Thursday 21st June 2018)

Last night, we had an electrical blip, which made my bedside clock forget its own name. So this morning I woke up with such a fright as it was already 10am! I rushed downstairs to open for the dogs, only to see my mum still at home... it was 7am... she laughed, I laughed... That’s how the day started, so I thought I’d stay up and enjoy it.

Got to the hospital at 2:45pm, ready to get started for 3pm but there was a delay in treatment, so I only started just after 5pm but it’s only a half hour infusion. I was given more sickness tablets, saline and then chemo. The chemo is stored at a rather low temperature and was making my arm cold, which was nice at first as I felt nauseous but then I started getting cramps in my shoulder so they gave me an electric heated pad, which was nice and toasty!
It was all done, I had a bit of tummy ache, nausea but it was done! Got home and fell straight to sleep until 9pm.
Besides the usual headache, and other lingering symptoms, it went well and I’m enjoying that I’m semi human before the chemo kicks in, in the days and weeks to come.

I’ve been given more meds for this week for extra precaution (antihistamines and stomach protection). Round 1 complete and feeling completely kick ass! #chemowarrior #chemotherapy #bendamustine #nhlymphomaniac #nhlymphoma #follicularlymphoma #round1 #cancerfighter #fuckcancer

Back in the bed all day. I can take one side effect at a time. I really can. I’ve made myself channel my inner strong-girl, and it’s amazing what you can endure when you set your mind to it. But when a headache comes along...damn. When your head feels like it’s in a vice, you want to cry your eyes out. But crying makes it hurt worse, so you try to breathe through it. Everyone should have a baby girl taking care of them. She is saving her Momma’s life. I had the longest head and neck rub with lavender oil; the sweetest words of strength whispered to me; prayers said over me; and everything I thought I wanted to eat or drink brought to me. I’m laying in bed with a hot pack on my head, and a chubby dog up against my back. This has been the worst crash yet. I wasn’t ready for this one. But having her here kept me from getting blue. Don’t go through the bad days alone. Call someone even though you think that you can’t. Check on the ones that say they’re doing ok. Then, check on them again. Send them ginger ale and cookies. This is going to pass. It’s just a rough spot in a beautiful road of a life. Later, when I’m human again, I’ll look for some lessons to learn from it. I don’t want to repeat this class. I want a 4.0 in whatever I’m supposed to learn from this shit. There are so many people going through so much worse; so many more aches and pains; so many diagnoses that are frightening; and so many that are alone. I’m lifting those people up today, and asking God to just love on them so big - like only He can. #wearesurvivors #survivingaf #breastcancer #chemotherapy #chemo #chemobuddy #chroniclingcancer #chemosucks #chemowarrior #kickingcancersass

Treatment 1 - part 1 (Wed 20 June 2018)

I am so full of drugs that I’m wide awake, so I thought I’d share my first day with you.

I got in, got cannulated, given anti sickness meds, and the first half of chemo was administered. Once complete, I was then given more pre meds of Pred, Antihistamines and Hydrocortisone. After half hour they started me on the slowest infusion with half hour blood pressure, heart rate and temperature checks, before increasing the dose. I was doing well until the 4th increment, when I started getting a chilli-like burn in the back of my throat and nose, itchy head and back, and then I turned spotty. The meds had to be stopped and more pre meds pumped into me. After an hour, I was clear to continue and managed to finish the whole course without an anaphylactic reaction! RESULT!

My Oncologist kept popping over to see how I was and has prescribed me some extra meds for this week just in case. He honestly is one of the best consultants that I’ve had.

@cavscp was amazing as usual! He sat and fanned me as I was overheating but had a million things attached to me. Gave me food when I got hangry, helped me to the loo with my drip stand because it’s like having a pet octopus on drugs! Honestly, I couldn’t do this without him!

We were both tired - but we did it!
My hand and arm is bruised today, I have a sore throat (flu-like symptoms) but I’m alive and ready for part 2 of chemo today!

Thank you for all your messages and well wishes, and the naughty messages that made me giggle throughout the day!
Love to you all!

💕 So proud of my amazing Mum ringing the bell today to signify the end of her main cancer treatments which have made her so poorly. 💕 I know she will hate this being public so sorry Mum but I had to. You have been amazing and your strength throughout has been an inspiration. Love you. #chemowarrior #endofcancertreatment #lovemymum #survivingcancer Commentary courtesy of dad lol ☺

For those calling cannabis a "gateway drug" the reality is that it is an exit drug. Patients across the US are already using it to successfully quit pharmaceuticals and find a healthier alternative. Medical cannabis is an exit drug. #VoteYesOn788 June 26
