Unfortunately the pre-event prep wasn't great.....an hour or two before starting I was at the hospital with Karena - she was feeling really rough, has a bad sore throat, is shivvery, has ear ache and is blocked up.....and because the chemo is an immuno-suppressant, we were told that in the event of illness to get to a doctor - as 'normal' things like colds can become quite serious quite quickly. Anyway, long story short.....we saw the doctor and Karena has some antibiotics and was OK to come home - and this evening is feeling a little better....thankfully.
She had her pre-op checks yesterday (blood tests, heart checks, signing the forms etc). The doctors (both yesterday and today) seem happy that the operation can still go ahead this Thursday even if she has a cold. I think that's a good thing.....
Stuff I'm grateful for today :-
- Competant Doctors
- the NHS
- People who are standing with us in love, in faith, in hope, in prayer
- Karena to be well for Thurs - shivvery cold to go, sore throat to heal etc
- Operation to go ahead as planned on Thurs - full hysterectomy + omental lump and any other traces of cancer to be removed
- Strength in heart and mind as Thurs approaches
