Chemo day.... Number 9 today! By now I know most of the patients and I chat with Sonja, who gets bi-weekly infusions due to an immune deficiency. Her friend has just been diagnosed with breastcancer and she heard about my blog. I hope it will help her! My other 'follower', who has been diagnosed with... Continue Reading →

Chemo day... juchhey!??!? I pack food, books, earphones and Christmas cookies for the nurses and off I go. My blood is good and chemo #8 is on it's way!  They always order them from a pharmacy across the road and it is only mixed just before I get it. While I wait, I manage to... Continue Reading →

When the going gets tough, the tough get going - Tabea and the running Mamas are training despite the cold and the rain, but we sit for ages in the Klee'snack Cafe afterwards hugging the radiator... cold and wet is not ideal, but I took it easy. It is the second day without antibiotics and I... Continue Reading →
