I'm surprised at how well I feel to be honest. No sickness, just very slight nausea but I'm wearing my sea sickness bands and it seems to be helping, not had to resort to the anti-sickness pills yet. I do have a headache which started on the C input yesterday. But it's better than it was yesterday and I've not resorted to painkillers, just drinking loads. The only thing is I have a flushed face, but temperature is fine.
I didnt sleep very well because I was expecting to be ill! So I'm still tired but managing to do housework etc.
How are you after No 2? I do hope you're ok 💪💪
Take care all of you and keep fighting, you lovely ladies.

Shi, you're bonkers! I'm just DJ'ing in for any late joiners who may have missed my blog earlier in the month http://lifeafterlola.blogspot.com it's full of tips we collected along our chemo journey which you may find useful. I'll leave you with a little late night luuuurve "Caravan of Love" by the Housemartins - that was our chemo song in the May 2017 starters. xxxx

Wow ladies you are doing well, the hair/wig issue is a biggie at first but once its gone you do get used to it, go with whatever you feel is right, wigs arent for everyone, mine looked lovely but i still hated having to wear it. Now its getting colder out there will be lovely snuggly hats to wear. Somebody mentioned what to do about eyebrows and lashes? I didnt lose mine until chemo 5 out of 6 but if you can book yourselves on to the Looking Good Feeling better course, its free and you get shown how to draw in eyebrows etc and you get lots of lovely freebies.. its a really good pamper for you and a few hours away from this nightmare!
Keep ticking off the days,,
