A Recipe of Numbers

A Recipe of Numbers

A year on from diagnosis…365 days

3 scans

1 tumour

1 drugs trial

2 operations

14 nodes removed

1 bald head

6 scarves

6 rounds of Chemo

42 Immune System Injections

2 spells of Sepsis

3 Chest X-Rays

8 fingernails lost

6 toenails gone

2 collapsed veins

20 sessions of Radiotherapy

5-year course of tablets

0 alcohol

(the half glass of lager that made me sick doesn’t count…)

20 new found friends going through the same thing

Too many Antibiotics, Steroids, and Anti-Sickness drugs

Tons of tears

With a scattering of laughs
