My nurses here are comedian in disguise. I can’t stop laughing at what Alana wrote on my board this morning. She makes my goal to hug everyone easier. Well done Alana, I managed to rope so many people in. The joke is on you though. You are the one I hug the most everytime I buzz my bell ha! Shame, Alana is shy to be on camera. PS : Thanks for the smile. Your board made my day!

People have asked if they can come visit. I’ll be in Peter Mac Ward /Level #9 then ask receptionist for my room. My 5 days chemo as inpatient has started since yesterday to Sunday late arvo I believe. If you plan to visit they are quite lenient with their hours. Maybe come after 4? Just leave comment if you are coming as I may be downstairs for radiation.

PPS: Those coming tonight will be my helping hand to do the sign for oprah! haha

Hugs you later aligator

Love,
Nat 🙂

D162: My hugging adventure on my first day back for 5 days chemo. Hug tally 23 some of them aren’t in the pic :(. Started with radiation, blood test, onco doc, radio onco doc, dietitian then radiation nurse for education on the side effect of radiation in the pelvis area.

I’m already feeling my energy level drop. Maybe the radiation makes me more fatigue.

SPECIAL HUG EDITION FROM ST V NURSES

I got in the lift to go to radiation. I looked up and I saw Beck (you’ll never forget your first spa bath nurse haha). I hold her wrist as a joke to surprise her. She screamed and ran the opposite site while saying,”You can’t hug me, I have something (not sure if I have the permission to say it even if for me it doesn’t seem bad but a nurse always look out for her patients.)” The whole lifts laugh at us haha.

Maddy (my first nurse who looked after me after I’ve got moved from ICU) and Bec came down for study day, they said.

Beck said to me,”I wonder if I’ll get to see Nat.” Then,”BAM…it happens”

It was one in more than a million chance that I took the same lift at the same time. I have been running around doing my 5 appointments.

Moral of the story : Dreams and wishes do come true.

Just keep dreaming (and take action) til it comes true

D162: HOW DID SURVIVORS DO IT?

Watch this quick interview when these lovely survivor & how’s they keep it free for so long.
.
Than you Anita and Lisa, my newfound friends 🙂

I sat down waiting for my blood test number being called. As soon as I sat these 2 ladies smiled. So, I smiled back. Before I know it, we started taking and they shared how Anita is 6 years free and Lisa is 13 years free.

It is a bit lengthy but you will get their tools to push through the joy of chemo that every now and then you will have a day where you get so unwell as a blessing in disguise. For once, you are given clear focus on your health and yourself which is important because any other times you’d be worrying more about other people or other things.

PS: I was tired and fast asleep by 8 when I meant to upload this. So you know the craziness behind 3AM post lol.

D161: LIFE IS FULL OF HIT & MISS. SO, KEEP ON HITTING TIL YOU DON’T MISS IT.

Thanks Jenny for my hospital fun run 🙂

PS: Happy birthday for my brother in Indonesia too 🙂

My last day of freedom before 5 days chemo tomorrow. We went for a walk and played golf. You get to see me do 360 degree swing in laughter haha.

I had a little cry this morning (don’t tell anyone haha). It was quick but I need to let it out. It’s been over a week of pain everytime I go to the toilet. I had diarrhea too yesterday which multiplies my pain. Now, it hurts when I do #1 too. I am holding on the hope that I only have 2 more weeks to go and another couple to heal.

I tell Santa, all I want for Christmas is no pain when going to toilet …oh and TO HUG OPRAH! haha

Be grateful if you are pain free doing your business. It’s a good day for you 🙂 I wish no one had to go through this. For my cancer friends who do. I feel and pray for you too. Hang in there…

Blessings and hugs xx

My last day of freedom before 5 days chemo tomorrow. We went for a walk and played golf at Coburg Lake. There is free driving range there. So if you have a stick and balls give me a holla, we can play together. You get to see me do 360 degree swing in laughter haha.
