Yesterday I said ” the only side effect is a metallic taste in my mouth”.  I was hasty, today the side effects kicked in.

Nausea, desperatley tired, loss of appetite ( and looking at what I just wrote, loss of ability to spell – and I don’t care).

Still I managed to eat something, and I had my tablets.  If this is just for a few days, like last cycle, then I can take it.  I met people in the Christie whose reaction was so bad they ended up in hospital as emergency admissions, now that is bad.

Had a message from my son the Engineer.  His wife, the Secret Redhead, confirms she can and will shear away my crowning glory of hair (such as is left) on Tuesday.   I will be a baldy until I can collect my wig on Friday.

Meanwhile I was asked if I was losing hair everywhere.

“Well you are my wife,” I replied, “if you don’t know the answer to that then I don’t know who does.”

Still I managed one thing today.  I’d promised to write a story about dinosaurs for my grandson, the Dinosaur Kid.  And today I finished the first draft, and handed it to his dad for comment. Job done.

And now I am retiring to my bed!

  1. Your secret Redhead is right! it is better to shave it off, than seeing it fall away here and there and everywhere!
    You still have energy to write a story for your grandson, even with how you feel, I say Bravo to you Malcolm!
    You have strength! God Bless you through Jesus Christ the Lord!
