Scanxiety

Tomorrow is my end of treatment scan, or at least we hope it’s end of treatment anyway! I won’t get my results until next week, but at least I have a busy weekend to help keep my mind off it. I never have been very good at waiting for results.

London was fab. I didn’t win the award, but as you know, I didn’t expect to, and I am in no way upset about it. To me, it was an honour to have been nominated and short-listed and it was fantastic to meet so many lovely people on the night. As I’ve said, my biggest fear is relapse. On Thursday I met a lovely lady who like me, had stage 4 Hodgkin’s. She is now 5 years out of treatment, with no relapse, and has gone on to have 2 children naturally. Now, I know this doesn’t mean that I won’t have a relapse, but it did make me feel better. It was a very emotional evening, and I’m not ashamed to say that I shed a few tears.

I then went on to stay for the rest of the weekend in London and had a girlie weekend with some friends. We had a brilliant time, but I think I may have overdone it a wee bit, as I am now on antibiotics for a throat infection. Getting a little bit bored of being poorly, if I’m honest. Just wish my immune system would hurry up and fix itself!

My next entry will probably be next week, when I let you all know the results of my scan. Watch this space…..
