I have blogged my last blog on Cancer Aint Gonna Beat Me, because it didnt, and I want to put that part of my life into the past. I know that I am still having treatment, I have 6 more infusions of herceptin which will take me to October 2010 but I feel as though I have moved on now.
New side effects I am experiencing in this hot weather is pain in my hands. I have been to the GP and he doesn't think that it is arthritus but a side effect of the herceptin so I will be discussing this with the oncologist next week.
I had a very interesting weekend. We had highs in temperature of 27 degrees so it was too hot to ride but we ended up in the ruins of Caegwrle castle http://www.castlewales.com/hope.html from 9.30pm until 1.30am on a Ghost Hunt. We did make contact with quite a few souls, too many to list in great detail but we did meet a welsh speaking spirit. It was a really interesting night but lovely to be sitting amongst ancient ruins with our tea light candles burning on the stone.
I did the Race for Life on Sunday and even at 11am temperatures were at 27 degrees so I decided to power walk rather than run. I did the 5K in 40 mins which was quite good. I was amazed at the amount of women who were running the course and it was obvious that they had never run before, there were many with incorrect footwear!
I thoroughly enjoyed the event, the warm up was fun and so was the walk. It was sad to see pictures and names of those who had died and in my own little way, I fought back at the sadness because I dedicated my RFL to myself - one year survivor. SURVIVOR - I like that word.
