Pippa's Journey with a Brain Tumour

Cup Week

on November 4, 2013

Chemo can’t happen this week as Pippa’s blood tests showed that her platelets are too low. Only one cycle (week) in and we’ve met a hiccup with no real logical (as yet) explanation. One thing’s for sure, Pippa herself is just brilliant and looks better and better every day. Her smile, especially, is noticeably bigger. Now we need to wait another week to see what her blood tests show next Monday.
Our plans are so very much written in sand. Here I was thinking after today I would have a few weeks off driving that long, tiring road……. Off we will go again next week…. I also went through my calendar in my phone and deleted all the “chemo weeks” I had marked in for the next 12 months. That’s clearly not how organised I’m going to be!
The upside I guess is it’s “Cup” week and not “Chemo” week after all! Giddy up horses and someone please pour me a drink!!!

    Yes here’s to Cup week not Chemo Week. You are a great writer Virginia, I never had such enthusiasm I was too “frozen”. Rest up and snuggle up to your beautiful children as much as you can. Love Meredith
