Last week (Taxol round 4)

Monday a week ago I was outstandingly social. Had lunch with Liv, went by my office and got a lot of hugs from colleagues, ended the day with coffee with Tom. This resulted in a cough that I am still struggeling with. I tend to overdo it every time I decide to meet people. There is a lesson here somewhere that I just don’t seem to grasp….

Went with my daughter to her dentist last Tuesday and she put a facemask on me to protect me from further germs and infections.

I was afraid I would not get my chemo since I was a bit under the weather, but the blood tests came out just fine and I got my weekly poison. This time I met two boob sisters; Wenche with her new eyebrows, and the nice lady  (don’t have the name) who reads my blog and who is always in such a fantastic mood! 

  This last week it has been snowing relentlessly. The picture is from last Thursday morning, showing the view, or lack thereof, from my kitchen window. 

I still have gone for my early morning walks most of the days. It’s such a good way to start the day. Get the engine going. Even if it’s only 15 minutes I truly believe that this is one of the reasons I so far hardly have any weightgain from chemo.


Due to me coughing most of the night I get less sleep then needed. Again: thank God for Netflix! Besides “my” series, Jarle and I are now enjoying the latest season of House of cards.

It was my weekend with Silje and we did a lot of puzzles, which we both enjoy.


I am beginning to slowly notice some side effects, but doing really well so far. I look like shit, but feel pretty great.

I have dark circles around my eyes. Gotten my first rash, in the face of course. But look at the hair growing on my head!! Always look for the silverlining ❀️

  2. The face mask is an excellent idea-I just wrap a wooly scarf round my nose and mouth!!!
    Good to hear your getting through and that you’re still managing a daily walk-it’s my saving grace though sadly it’s not kept my fat belly from growing out of my trousers!!!
