It is now feeling like the big push is on. Since my last cycle 10 days ago I have had maybe 3 to 4 hours sleep per night and the fatigue is slowly catching up. When I'm alone, reading or writing I find myself dozing for what seem like 30 minutes at a time when I know they are only seconds. I have done well so far managing to get to work for a large proportion of the time however common sense it telling me that I'm getting close to the time when I need to be off until my treatment is complete. Apart from sleep deprivation I'm bruised over my arms and legs (possibly as a result of low platelet levels combined with the climbing last week) and my lips and tongue are getting blistered and ulcerated.

I suppose with me being run down the question most on my mind at the moment is will my platelet count be high enough for treatment to go ahead on Friday. We'll just have to wait and see.

Yorkshire Sculpture Park
|One of Henry Moore's many sculptures in the park|
We had a visit to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park on Friday which is just a mile off junction 28 on the M1. What a fabulous place. Big open spaces with sculptures dotted around the park. It's free to get in but parking is £7.50. If you go take a picnic, a rug and a rucksack but most of all take your imagination. An ideal day out for anyone and everyone including those recovering from cancer or just like me going through chemo.
