overwhelmed …

… is the perfect word to sum up the past two weeks!!

There just seems to have been so much to deal with …

“scanxiety”;  new evidence of disease; a fractured rib and the news that my right hip and femur could be at risk of doing the same; a stay in hospital;  a completely new chemotherapy regime; radiotherapy;  immobility; enough controlled medication to start a small business and the frustration of having the approval of a very expensive (AED 35k) genomic profiling test, which will indicate which drugs will be most effective in treating my cancer, declined by my health insurance …

that sometimes I have felt like I am barely treading water.

But, the thing that has, once again, overwhelmed me the most, is the love and support I receive on a daily basis …

the messages, phone calls and visits from friends and family; the awesome PINKLadies who are always there for me; my employer who has been so understanding throughout; the fantastic oncology team at City Hospital who take such good care of me; and last, but by no means least, my amazing family who have had to juggle everything they usually do with everything I usually do to make sure that there is food in the fridge, the laundry is done, and I am where I need to be and have everything I need …

that, rather than barely treading water, to quote one very cute fish called Dory, I’ll “keep on swimming”.

So thank you xx
