29 th March 2011

Hi all
I feel just great now. Just like my old self. I'm even now more independent getting on buses now too.
Gray is now home after his quadruple bypass and is doing well. He was in hospital for a month which was awful for me. I cried every day and got through so many boxes of tissues. But I had wonderful support from wonderful friends and family.
 I am currently haf way through my chemotherapy and have had absolutely no side effects whatever not even sickness or nausea. I lost some hair after the first session but none after the second or third. I may even be lucky and keep my hair and not need the wig I bought!
We currently have my sister in law here who has come to look after Gray. It's lovely to see her as we get on so well together.
I had an epileptic fit on Saturday and bit a big chunk out of my tongue. We read the leaflet with the Epanutin and it says you should have monthly blood tests to check your levels of  the drug and I never have. I've been on it for 3 months. So I booked an appointment with the GP and asked him if it could have been brought on by stress and he said yes it could have done. He's booked me in with Diane the nurse for Monday. I'm finding it very difficult to chew with my bitten tongue so I'm living on soup and ice cream. Can't be bad!

26th March

The other day I read the leaflet tha t came with the pain killer co-codomol that I am taking for the pain in my legs and itsaid don't take with the anti sickness tab they gave me to take so I stopped them and felt a lot better yesterday. However I had to walk a long way yesterday which tired my legs out and now I'm back in pain again.
Meanwhile my life has fallellen apart. My husband Gray has had a seccond hearrt attack and went into Sollihul hospital last Thursday .He.s now waiting to be transferred to univedrsity hospital Coventry for a triple bypass. I miss him so muvh and am scared for him.I've got through so many boxes of tissues crying.

We received our cencus to fill in the other day and as Gray says we can't put him on it if he's still in hospital.

Iwas hoping to visit him again today like I've done every other day but I will have to seee if I can get rid  of this pain first. I'll be devastated if I can't go.

I was determjned to sleep with my husband today..  So of course what happened. One time in the day I had to bend down to pick something up and my back went crack. then I trpped over the airer and pulled a back muscle. I  started off in bed but had pain in my legs so went down to the sofa again.Will try again tonight, fingers crossed. Gray took me for another short walk again last night and is taking about taking me for a meal.Whopee! A couple of my good freinds from work are coming to see me this evening which i'm really looking forward to it.
