Another few hours at the Headland Unit.

Arrived at 9:50. Just in time for a nice mug of tea and a pack of 3 chocolate bourbon biscuits.

Uploaded the photo of my footwear and sat watching This Morning with Aemonn and Ruth and the volume is up. I'm waiting for my nurse to call me through for the covid check which includes the usual cough and smell questions and do I know anyone etc. Then a thermometer in my lug hole and spray on my hands. Then I'll be taken through to the unit.The unit is divided into three bays. Today I'm in Bay A. I'm usually in Bay B although last time they allocated me to Bay A. I like Bay B there's a couple of chairs that looks at the nurses station and the entrance to the unit. Some activities to watch.

My nurse today is Emma. Another important Emma in my life.

The chairs are big reclining chairs. Very comfy and wipe clean.

It's 10:45 I'm getting plugged in. It actually hurts a bit then the needle Not long before I'm mainlining on chemo junk. It takes an hour. I have no extra meds to pipe in but I take a selection home. The deal is I count what I have and I get topped up. Wanna know what I have? Yep, I thought you'd like to know. I don't need them all all of the time but I have a selection of








Jack Daniel's

Oddly the last one is s bit of self medication.

As I sit, all connected up I find a bit of time to write this, make a few calls, catch up with the family.

I've only got a few minutes to go but it always takes a bit longer than expected.

While I've been here today I've received a package at home. Sweets, socks and a fiver. The fiver is a donation. Thanks Jon.

Today it all gone without a hitch. I should be out within the next half hour or so. My pump is beeping. Hopefully not too long now. Just need my medical medallion attached with a bit of flushing.

I've just heard I being disconnected at home. Happy days.
