Well its New Years Eve and I’m sat in Clatterbridge waiting for my treatment to start. Its not so nice in the morning as I tend to see more children at this time. They are so upbeat and brave, certainly puts a few adults to shame who moan about every little cough, spot or tummy bug.
I have had a total of 8 sessions and I’m pleased to say that the major delays didn’t extend past the first two days. All my appointments have been smooth and on time which has been great.
It its really tiring going to the Wirral on a daily basis, however we were afforded some respite on Christmas day and Boxing day. Also have another day off tomorrow. Then it’s the reality of 5 days a week, Monday to Friday, a routine, which is exactly what I need at the moment.
My scar is tender at the moment. I have so many creams, oils, ointments and cooling gels. I could start my own pharmacy at this rate….
I has physio on Friday and am pleased to report that I am crutchless! I now have a lovely metal walking stick with a bright orange sticker….when I go back to physio this Friday they will arrange for me to have a wooden stick cut if I feel comfortable with it. So far so good.
Well, I am off to buy a diary to put all my appointments in because I don’t know my arse from my elbow at the minute…
Have wonderful new year wherever you may be.

Emma, you’re an inspiration to all. Such a brave lady. I have been following your blog regularly and I’m pleased to see that you’re nearing the end of your journey. You deserve one hell of a holiday afterwards! And a few vodkas too 😉
Keep that lovely smile of yours going. And keep up the blog, it’s a fantastic idea and certainly makes me feel lucky.
Wishing you a fantastic 2013 and a quick road to recovery. Lou xx
