John’s Travel Diary

Friday, 01 Mar 2013

Location: Louth, Lincolnshire, UK

MapWell, it was a rough night. Lots of pain, lots of nausea, had to try to sleep sitting up, dazed and drugged with the liquid morphine we've got. Felt really awful in the morning, but strangely, I managed to eat a bit of croissant - which was delicious. It makes no sense. Then off to Hull for radiotherapy. We had to wait around for ages whilst they took blood samples and got them tested, because it's my first time - but the results were good. Haemoglobin down a bit, but not yet critical. The radiotherapy is a doddle! Literally 10 mins: take of upper clothes, lie on platform, machine buzzes twice, finish! And VERY pretty nurses.
Went back again yesterday, and it was all over in no time. It was a beautiful day, with clear blue sky from horizon to horizon, so we went to look at Beverley, a pretty historic town nearby in South Yorkshire, and then came back on little country roads, avoiding the traffic and finding some charming villages and glorious views. No camera, sadly, but I'll rectify that today. I've decided to keep my D40 in the car so I've always got one handy.
Yesterday evening I managed to eat a bit, which was great! But it's strange: cream cheese will go down, but houmous won't. Last night was comfortable, and we're heading out to Hull again shortly.
Be good!
