I know it’s probably clichéd but April really was a game of 2 halves.
The end of March saw us all full of colds, the weather miserable and us becoming a little stir crazy at home. This seemed to roll into the beginning of the new month, with no ones mood improving.
Despite us doing our best to find some good in each day, positivity dwindled and Chris’ fifth chemo round was tough, tougher for him to deal with and extremely tough to watch. At one point I wasn’t quite sure how on earth I, we, were going to get through the rest of the year feeling that way.
Thanks to a blood transfusion giving Chris a much-needed boost of energy we managed to forget shitty cancer for 2 whole weeks and everything felt rather, dare I say it, normal. Although the weather remained ridiculously wintery and a little confused with which season/seasons each day would bring.
Moods truly lifted ensuring that we ended April with a steely determination to remain positive.
Chemo session six, the last before the big op came on the very last days, which has left us with feelings of relief, we have survived the last 4 months, and apprehension about what we know is coming up in May.
So without further ado, I present: April’s Month in a Minute!
