Well, dammit!

Being told

Well, my brain still feels like it's a few steps behind events. I'm guessing that's pretty normal but it's still not a good feeling. I started to feel rough back in October of '16,, had all the prodding and poking available,, spent time getting my head round the idea that I had Crohn's disease,,, only it wasn't. I'm glad the doctor had a second colonoscopy done to take biopsies to see how bad the supposed Crohn's was,, that's when they found the lymphoma And then the world suddenly picked up speed. So many appointments in the last three weeks. And because of these idiotic computer hacking nut jobs I didn't receive a letter telling me when my chemotherapy would begin. I saw my lovely consultant this morning and found out my chemotherapy starts tomorrow! Still, no time to dwell I guess. There's always a little bit of sunshine somewhere ?? I hope anyone reading my daft thoughts (if anyone does?) is feeling the best they can right now
