Another no-go

Well, as suspected, they cancelled my chemo for today again. I’m disappointed but not surprised.

I had a chest x-ray which confirmed that I have a deep seated chest infection, but thankfully nothing more sinister is at work.

So- two different types of antibiotic to take simultaneously, and hopefully that might shift it!

We’ll try again next week. The dr is hopeful that my radiotherapy won’t need to be postponed, which I am delighted about. 🙂

It’s all a bit frustrating!

    I’m sorry to hear that (again), but it sounds like you’re okay with it at the moment. I’m going through some medical “waiting” right now myself and I can sympathize with how frustrating it is.

    I hope your wait won’t be for much longer!

    I hope those double antibiotics kick the crap out of that mean infection!

    Um…so far, they aren’t. :-/ but there’s still time, I hope!

    Bah! That chemo is so afraid of you it keeps ducking out. 😉

    What a good way to look at it, thanks TB!

    Sorry about that Suzy, but it’s better that the chest infection is completely cleared up.
    I know it’s frustrating and so annoying for you but hang in there.

    I’m starting to think it’s never going to go!!!
