Hello out there how is life rolling for you? Or isn’t it rolling? I lose track of everything because I don’t dare to watch any news throughout the day. So for all I know everything is already gone down the drain while I was binge waching “Escape to the Country”. Are you the same or is it just me?
A couple of days ago BBC Breakfast introduced us to the musical Marsh family who like many others have taken to singing to make isolation bearable:
That made me laugh so hard I nearly split open my stitches. I do not recommend that :-).
So what day is it anyway? Oh, Friday! How strange how Friday for many of us lost its lustre. I think I said something similar last week. Sorry for the repetition. But maybe we make Friday fabulous again? Let’s dress up maybe? Or bake a cake? Or do some cool dancing?
Now there are some moves. 😉
No, don’t worry I haven’t taken to dancing just yet. My highlight today will be to get rid of the dressings and hopefully the stitches have gone. They are supposedly dissolving ones but the way my left side heals has changed a teeny weeny bit so I am rather suspicious of how that will turn out.
It didn’t occur to me how much more careful I need to be in the future when it comes to scatches etc now that my lymph nodes have gone under my left arm. I am in mourning. Usually, I healed rather well especially when I used the help of essential oils. You want an example? The guys at the hospital let me know that my veins are rather weak. So they had to get the needles for the operation into three places on both sides of my hands until they found one that worked. The wounds on the right hand have healed already. The left looks rather sore if I forget to put tea tree on. Well, I will survive… hopefully 😉
Just in case you’ve forgotten rule number one in these strange times 😉
So, it’s just before one am in the UK and that’s usually the time I wake up to take my night time painkillers to get through the rest of the night. So I did last night but it somehow didn’t do the trick. I couldn’t fall asleep again and in turn, was rather uninspired to do anything yesterday. After the best husband left for work I decided to watch a film on the BBC iPlayer. I stumbled over “Filmstars Don’t Die In Liverpool” which I wanted to see for ages. All I can say is: It’s a brilliant film but maybe not a good choice when you are at the beginning of your cancer journey and want to cheer up :-(.
After that I went for the “Escape to the Countryside” binge watching including some self-care (tea tree on several scratches, exercises twice, walking the dog up the garde) and chores (dishes, peeling potatoes with one hand and feeding the dog). You think living wih a cat would be easier? I doubt that very much 🙂
And why am I writing about my day?
Linda over at “Life in Progress” has started the “What day is it anyway” blog event. She invites us all to share a little of our new daily routines, struggles and successes. She writes: “
Why I’m writing this post:
Because if you’re like me and stuck at home already, or if you’re going to be like me soon, the days of the week are going to be hell to keep track of. We have a wonderful community here on WordPress and all over the Internet as well, and I’m sure many people are feeling nervous and/or isolated. I want to make sure every one of us has somewhere to congregate and someone to talk to.
I want everyone to know that you can start discussions with each other in the comments, and if you’d like to write your own “What Day is it Anyway?” post, you can link to this one. Hashtag #WDIIA.
Let’s keep in touch!
And I can only encourage you to take her up on the offer 🙂 . Here is her post from Wednesday.
Woa, I really got a post together… ok, ok, I admit I cheated with tons of videos…but they entertained you, didn’t they? So there is only one thing left to ask you:
The hospital that is treating me for cancer is fundraising for a dedicated breast cancer unit which would allow same-day diagnosis and better premises for patients and staff.
Please, if you can spare a little money hop over to their Just Giving Page and give as little or much as you can. Or share the page on your social media. Your support means a lot to me! Thank you very much.
