Actually, I got home yesterday, but I feel so tired all the time I didn’t have the energy to write.

I had expected to be in for 8-10 days after the operation and, by my fingers, Thursday was only 6. I asked the doctor who then counted the days up: the day of the op -1, and counting on made Thursday 7, which he pointed out was nearly 8!

I have other maths problems in relation to my pills. Below you can see the 2-page scheme for my medication. The box and charts shows morning, midday, evening and night: 8, 12, 17 and 22h. However, I need a supplementary box for pills at 20h and a notepad to record the fungal mouth washes at 6, 10, 14, 17 and 22h. It’s a full-time job keeping track of what I’m to have when, so I have laid everything out on my painting table, which has to double as a control center. The sooner I can begin cutting down the better, but the notes for how to do that span half a page and 8 weeks.

In the meantime, I checked my last hæmoglobin count and it was very low, which explains the tiredness and the opiods make my vision and brain blurred. So please don’t expect frequent updates; I think we can all trust that I will continue to feel stronger each day. Iron rich foods are on the menu and I have an appointment with the Frederiksberg Cancer Centre about physiotherapy on Tuesday 24th October and a check up at the hospital on the 31st.

Thank you everyone for your emails, messages, cards and flowers, I feel very well-loved and supported.
