Dealing with it

It wasn’t until a customer said to me at work the other week ‘how are you coping Kristy’ and my reply was ‘yeah im getting better’ and he said ‘no with the ‘mental part of having surgery and having a mastectomy’ …. which i was like ‘yeah i’m ok with that, i would rather have…

Round #4 done πŸ‘ŠπŸ‘ŠπŸ‘Š

Well yesterday was my fourth chemo treatment. Oh god I can see the finish line of the chemo part now 🏁🏁 So good that I’m able to go to work for a few hours then head in and have my treatment from lunchtime onwards and then head home from Moree. Certainly makes it a lot…

Chemo #3

An awesome first treatment in Moree today. No extra driving and no getting up early to leave, just my normal leave time for work time. First off when I went in to reception I finally met a social worker. I had asked to speak to one at Tamworth and despite me having two chemo treatments…

My biggest fear

Throughout all this shitty saga my biggest fear has been that i wouldn’t be able to ride my horses ever again. I could possibly handle not playing polox again….. maybe that’s a big maybe. When the doctor and the cancer nurse heard me say im going to start riding my horses again shortly. The look…

I’m still me ……

When you go from hardly ever been sick to have a shitty diagnosis you have to get used to the ‘how are you’ questions real quick. Let me tell you this is a huge struggle for me. I have always just sucked it up if i was sick and done what i had to do….

Round Two

Well yesterday was Round Two of chemo. It was a long day too as i also wanted to get some horse feed ect and other items whilst over there. Multitasking at its best. I left home at 6am to get to my amazing hay supplier who god love him wouldn’t let me load up but…

Week of 4/2

A new week. Tomorrow will be my second chemo treatment in Tamworth pending my bloods this morning. I have decided to get them done at Warialda Hospital as they book times whereas Moree have a number system. Sitting in the waiting room in Moree waiting for your number if like last time was over an…

It’s just hair……..

They tell me it will grow back, its just hair, what are you so worried about….. Well yes it is just hair but its more than that at the same time…. I didn’t think i would be so emotional cutting all my hair off until i had to do it… Tuesday 29th Jan was that…
