From Head Down to Heads Up!

I’ve had the roughest tablet-taking cycle so far, which thankfully finished yesterday. I have been feeling so nauseous with no appetite for most of this cycle. Over the last few days, I’ve had a fruit smoothie for breakfast and a little smoothie for tea and nothing else except water. When drinking water was making me gag, I knew that I really was in a sorry state. I have very little energy given how little I’ve eaten.

Last night, I was sick immediately after taking an anti-sickness tablet (isn’t it Ironic: I hadn’t even been feeling sick before I took the tablet!). It was immediately bile that came up, which was not surprising given that I’d barely eaten for a few days so there was nothing in my stomach. Continue reading “From Head Down to Heads Up!”

Bloaty McBloatface

This week in the Turner-Cole household has included a little less drama than in recent weeks, a lot more soft furnishing decisions for the Hobbit House and sorting out paperwork and photos from the last 18 years.

One Egg is an Oeuf

I was given the green light to start driving the Quadcycle on Wednesday. I know that the cyber-attack affected many people, including many radiotherapy, chemotherapy, Consultants’ appointments and operations being cancelled. Fortunately, the cyber-attack didn’t affect me save that the backlog meant that I had a longer wait than usual at the Hospital on Wednesday but that was ok. I’m not going to write a lengthy rant but I can’t understand why anyone would use their IT talents in such a destructive way.

A Little Less Conversation

Graham and I had chosen the novelty of talking to each other Continue reading “One Egg is an Oeuf”

Let Them Eat Cake

After rambling updates Japanese style, the remainder of this post is about some wonderful fundraising by friends and former colleagues for the Brain Tumour Charity. Don’t worry, this is not a sponsorship request, it is a public thank you (whether they like it or not) to those who have raised money recently.

Heads Up[date]! 2017

I explained in a previous post that our friend Emily is doing a crazy 200-mile sponsored run for the Brain Tumour Charity. If you sponsor her online here TODAY ONLY, Virgin Money Giving will boost your donation by 10% at no cost to you.

Below is a screenshot of Virgin Money Giving’s official twitter account explaining why it is doing this. Below the explanation, in response to a twitter user’s question, VMG confirmed that it applies to ALL donations, not just to those who ran the London Marathon yesterday.

NB The site is very busy again today (but has not broken down) so you might need to refresh the page a few times before you can donate.  Continue reading “Heads Up[date]! 2017”
