Sad news this week at the death of an Australian meso warrier, Anita was diagnosed around 2007 in her forties, not only did she survive the initial diagnosis , she also had the miracle of a baby girl, despite chemo. Her memory now lives on in that baby girl.
It has been a difficult few months, having to say goodbye too so many warriers, Ray’s scan is due in two weeks and it is difficult to stay positive and keep some hope for the future. Research is ongoing but it seems so slow.
This week although the pain has been under control, seems to have been the week of nose bleeds. This happened during the second phase of chemotherapy but nothing since. This week , seems to be every day , over dinner , at breakfast or walking down the road, usually at a time of maximum hassle. No idea what has brought this on, possibly the ibrufen has built up , but other than that no idea.
Although this may sound minor it is really depressing, it is yet another reminder that you aren’t normal, yet another reminder of being ill. So emotionally I know that it brings him really down.
Any ideas gratefully received as to how to stop them occurring!
